- QuestionWhy did the price increase from $99 to $119? Has Nest recently added some new features or something? (4 Answers)Answers
Nope, no new features, just a price jump. I think it's still second generation for the smoke detectors and third generation for the thermostat. I guess they figured their customer base is big enough now to where they can up the price and we will keep coming back to keep the house with a uniform brand.
- QuestionWhen the Nest alarm goes off, can you silence the alarm with the phone app? Or do you have to climb up on the ladder to silence it ( I have really tall ceilings)? After checking your home of course. We've had false alarms with current ones. (5 Answers)Answers
No need to mount the Nest on the ceiling... It's design allows much lower location... and I read a lot on these about a year ago and my understanding is that you can indeed control, operate, Silence it from the app. Here's a Copy and paste from the Nest website. "The new Nest Protect has been redesigned from the inside out. It has an industrial-grade smoke sensor, tests itself automatically, and lasts up to a decade. It's also the first home alarm you can hush from your phone without any extra hardware required. And just like the original Nest Protect, it tells you what’s wrong and can even alert your phone."
