    Nest Protect Rocks!

    |
    Posted .

    Nest Protect is one of the most comprehensive, of the smart smoke detectors I've ever purchased. Not only does it pick up several types of fires, as well as carbon monoxide, but it also does the best job at alerting you of the danger. It also works with a wide range of smart-home products. I've set my Philips Hue lights to turn on automatically when the Nest Protect goes off. Pretty cool!

    App, Features, Night light feature

    These detectors are awesome, in some rooms I have them set up in another language and others in English. Love the night light feature! Great and easy to install, find location and follow instructions on the app

    Are you kidding me?! Replaced the batteries but still bad sensor. Dusted it as recommended (although not dusty) and still beeps saying I need to replace it. Why would I get another one when this one took a crap so soon. And back cover over batteries will not stay closed. No earthquakes where I live so not sure why covet won’t close or why it stopped. Made in China most likely reason. And now not returnable—of course.

    Features, Night light feature

    I love these things! They work flawlessly. The smoke detector is very accurate and I assume the CO2 part works great too (I hope I will never need to find out). The best feature for us is the motion sensing night light. It's not super bright, but just enough to light the stairway. They are very easy to figure out what is going on as well. Side note: I did a lot of research on how the CO2 part works from the celing. Apparently the Nest detector has some kind of high powered sensor and scanning sensor build in. It Apparently works well based on tests I read online.

    The wait for gen 2 has paid off!

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    App, Set up

    I was always very interested in the original Nest Protect. I always loved the idea, but didn't feel the cost was justified given the negative reviews and early issues. Although they have been able to gradually improve the Nest Protect through software updates, I figured if I was patient enough, I could wait until they released a whole new hardware refresh. I'm glad I waited! Compared to the Nest Protect 1st gen, this one has an improved smoke chamber (fewer false alarms), smaller physical footprint, App Silence feature (silence alarm through app via Bluetooth), and other hardware improvements that extend the stated lifespan to ten years (up from seven)! All very good improvements. But does it work? Well, my house hasn't done the ultimate test of becoming engulfed in flames yet, but I did do some basic false alarm testing. Steam from a nearby bathroom, and light smoke from a candle, both failed to trip the alarm. So it seems their claims of fewer false alarms are true thus far. *Setup* Getting this set up was very easy. You can really tell they put a lot of work into the presentation and setup. The box is easy to open, and very welcoming with its simplistic and well-designed instructions. Everything in the manual is accompanied by very good pictures to help you along the way. Basically, the steps are: 1) Download app (Android and iOS compatible) and create a free account 2) Open Nest Protect box and remove hardware 3) With app ready to pair device, pull plastic tab from Nest Protect unit to power it on 4) Unit goes through some brief testing where you will be left with absolutely no doubt the alarm works (LOUD!) 5) Unit will pair with your phone so you can enter in wifi network info, after which it will connect to wifi 6) Remove old smoke detector and mounting plate 7) Disconnect old smoke detector wires and reconnect new wires included with Nest Protect 8) Screw in Newst Protect mounting plate and snap in other end of new wires to unit 9) Twist in unit to new mounting plate 10) Finish with another test and make final configuration changes via app. Done! This was the first time I had ever replaced a smoke detector, and I found it very easy. *Mobile App* The app is very well-designed and works well on both my phone and tablet. It also integrates with a ton of other home automation gadgets, which is really cool (Nest Thermostat obviously, Philips Hue bulbs, Skydrop sprinkler controller, and many others). Here's some of the things you can do from the app: - Change mode between Home and Away (not really relevant to CO detector, but good for other devices) - Iniitiate Nest Protect sound test, checkup - Silence alarm - Change Protect location (family room, bedroom, etc, for accurate communication) - Adjust Nest Sense: - - Toggle Pathlight to light your way when you are under Protect at night - - Nightly Promise (Unit self-tests and gives green "OK" light each night) - - Steam Check (reduce false alarms on steam, good for units near bathrooms) - - Heads Up (less loud & annoying pre-alarm warning when rising CO levels detected) - Adjust unit LED brightness (low, medium, high) - Change language (English, English (UK), Spanish, French, French (CA), Netherlands) - View unit status (model, serial, software version, battery status, replace date, last update time, wifi MAC/IP addresses) - Add/remove devices to your account - What To Do (advice on preparing for CO/fire alerts) - Device History (logs on alarms and updates) So overall, the Nest Protect is an expertly-designed device and I love it so far. It has everything I could expect from a smoke/CO detector. Although it would be awesome if it could double as a wireless access point or security camera! I will definitely update this as I get more time with my Nest Protect 2nd gen units, especially if I get false positives, or actual positives. But so far I am loving my Nest Protect.

    Pros mentioned:
    Alarm, Set up

    Nest Protect Smart Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm provides the ultimate protection & peace of mind. The intelligent alerts discriminate between steam and smoke. A clear "Heads Up!" pre-alert gently cautions you in situations when close proximity to steam or a little smoke in the kitchen, for example, is about to trigger an alert. You can silence a false alarm using your phone. Multiple units share alerts to all rooms & to your NEST App on your phone, tablet & computer - so you are protected throughout your home! The "Promise" is a ring of green light that illuminates nightly to let you know everything is good. Walk under NEST at night & the ring glows white, forming a pathlight. During Heads Up, it glows yellow. During an emergency, it glows red. NEST Protect self-tests, alerting you first by the phone app that it will sound. Everything is tested: sensors / voice / siren. Tests are dated & are sent to your app. A monthly summary even shows the exact date & time of each test. This is the premiere smoke detector, able to detect CO2 (even produces a completely different sound, for instant identification). NEST Protect senses both fast and slow burning fires. NO CHIRPS!! This advanced Smoke Alarm eliminates all of the hassles of pesky chirps from low batteries, with super long lasting Lithium Batteries included that last years. Battery alerts are through your App & by voice on the Alarm. To set-up, simply scan the QR Code on the back of the NEST & follow the voice instructions. Easiest set-up ever! NEST Protect earns my highest recommendation - no other Smoke / CO2 Alarm even comes close!

    I bought this 3-pack to replace standard battery-powered smoke detectors that had reached their 10-year end-of-life in three of our bedrooms. I already had six of these placed in other areas of the house. I really like their ability to communicate to each other, even if internet and wi-fi is down, and the voice alerts. The monthly health check that each unit performs each month is reassuring, and I especially like the smart features so I know which ones might be off-line. I've come to appreciate the night light feature as well. There is a price to pay for the always-connected aspect of these detectors, though, which is the same for any smart appliance like Nest or Ring cameras and hubs (I have a lot of those too), and that is that modem/routers have only so much capacity and that limit can easily be reached. I found that I hit the max upload capacity (channels) of my modem/router that I was renting from my cable company after installing these 3 detectors. All of a sudden my Tivo (another smart device) couldn't connect to its service and all of its smart features stopped working. Smart devices like these Nest Protect detectors and cameras tend to grab onto an outgoing channel and hang on to it, and there was no longer room for the Tivo to get to the internet. I didn't want to unplug any of our smart devices, so I had to upgrade my modem/router, and now everything works great.

    Nest Protect Does Exactly What It Says!

    |
    Posted .

    This is my 5th Nest Protect (located in my home office) and it saved my house from a potential catastrophe. I left the gas burner on while sterilizing baby bottles and went to work. The water boiled out and the alarm activated saying there was smoke in the hallway. Since no one was home, I was receiving alerts on my phone initially from the detector in the hallway; that is until all smoke detectors ultimately started alerting me. I immediately sent a relative to the home to find the gas burner on with all bottles melted. The situation could have become worse if I wasn't notified via alerts on my phone. Since I setup the alarm to notify other relatives, they were calling me as well to see if I was ok. Thank you Nest Protect!

    I really like this it checks it self and sends a report to you. Set up is very easy and it has a night light. I was very disappointed in the night light at first however I did figure out the light brightness can be adjusted. When you walk into the dark room after being in a well lite room there isn't much light. What I discovered is that in the middle of the night it is GREAT. There is enough light to see where you are going but not so much light that you will disturb someone if they are sleeping. I would highly recommend this product. I am very happy with it. I set up 4 of these (3 hard wired one battery) in 30 minutes from start to finish

    This is an excellent must have device to have in your home. Pros: Internet connection, connects to other Nest protect devises in your home, in case of smoke or fire all devices report the alarm and also sends notifications to your smart phone. You can add other user to your account and both can get push notification. Initiates soundcheck once a month and notifies you before and after test. Customer service is one of the best! Batteries last for 10 years and notifies you of low battery. I have owned these devices for almost 11 years, recently replaced my Gen 1 with Gen 2 due to CO sensor expiration date.

    Alarm, App, Features

    My existing smoke alarms were well over the "good" date by 10 years when I checked! I knew it was time then to get some replacement detectors as well as an additional unit to cover my basement, where my utilities are, but with no existing protection. Made sence then, to go all in and get a good full spectrum smoke & CO detector for all 3 areas. Also, having them tied into my home network for remote access, was icing on the cake. I bought the 3- pack as it was the right number of detectors AND BestBuy price matched! Can't go wrong!! They were VERY easy to physically install. I was initially skeptical of the included hardware, but it worked perfectly. I was replacing some old First Alert models and the mounting holes don't match up unfortunately. But, it wasn't an issue. You don't need any special tools either; Just a screwdriver. They blend in nicely with the white ceiling which was a pleasant discovery. The app install on my Android based LG G5 went without a hitch and I had all 3 detectors connected in no time. All together, I had all 3 items physically & virtually installed in less than 45 min; from unwrapping the 3pack to walking away. I didn't even have to install batteries, as they came with & installed in each unit. The units self test (or you can have them test themselves via the app) on a schedule and you can view or hear the results. If batteries get low, they literally say that, so you know which one needs batteries. They aren't cheap, but as my & my families lives might literally depend on them, it was a very good investment. These items again, are dual spectrum for smoke AND they also are CO detectors. I really like that they're networked and that they talk when in action. Another handy feature is that at night, they also act as a night light for a few moments when you walk under them. Just for a few seconds, but enough to be helpful. Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase and whole heartedly recommend them. Check the dates on your current units - did you know they're only practically good for 10 years?? If it's time to replace them, buy these NEST units. If you don't have any in your home, then buy these TODAY! Money well spent, because what is your (or family's) life worth??? When you buy quality, you only cry once.

    I have 3 of these in my house. I recently replaced 2 that had reached their end of life (7 years). I know this because the device told me. This thing is amazing. You install it on the wall or ceiling connect it to the app and it does everything else: tells when there is a low battery when there is smoke in the house or when it's end of use which prior to owning this device I didn't even know was a thing.

    Have wired versions for primary locations and purchased this for other locations. Integrates well with wired versions. Like the pathway lighting feature in addition to the primary safety features for fire/smoke and CO2 alarm. Ten year battery with automatic monthly testing is a huge plus.

    The nest protect is the best smoke/fire/carbon monoxide monitor out there in my opinion. It uses two types of fire detection to give you the earliest possible warning, and they mesh together to give audio warnings and alarms in the whole house. If the one in the kitchen senses a fire it will alert and set of an alarm on all of the protects throughout the house. And before it sets off the loud alarm it gives a loud audio warning telling you where the issue is.

    We have 7 of these. Battery operated. We are replacing old smoke detectors (one or two per year). Super easy setup. Also, physically easy to install. With a cordless drill, I think it took me all of 10 mins to install each one. Set took about 5 mins total. Like that they are then linked by smart home Alexa and wireless network. If one goes off, they all go off and tell you where the problem is. Also has carbon monoxide detector. Batteries last ten years and are replaceable. I wish they weren’t so expensive....

    We have these throughout out entire house. Best feature is the smoke warning before the alarm actually goes off. Usually happens if we're cooking something and it gets smoky. But allows us to prevent the alarm going off, much nicer.

    After doing a remodel on our kitchen, code required hard wired smoke detectors that all talk to each other and we needed 7 smoke detectors in the required locations. The Nest detectors are all connected to our wi-fi, all send a notification if there is a pending problem detected. There is also a notification sent to our smart phone no mater where we are. Satisfied the code requirements without expensive wiring through out the house.

    Who knew a smoke detector be so cool

    |
    Posted .

    Im the guy that always forgot to change the batteries in his smoke detector. Quite frankly I don't know how long the batteries in my old one were dead, but with the addition of a baby girl to our family I decided to make safety a bit more of a priority. Not only with i now get phone alerts when I need to replace the batteries in my smoke detectors, each talks to each other so if one alarm goes off in the house they all do. But its another feature that i didn't know about that really bumps this to the 5 star review. last week i was cooking up some bacon with breakfast and the kitchen got a little smoky, now normally with the traditional alarms you would have a terribly loud and annoying siren going off. The nest gave me a pleasant warning in the form of a woman voice that told me that smoke was detected in the kitchen and that the alarm would sound soon, giving me a chance to hit the button to silence it and then turn up the fan on the rage hood to help clear the smoke. all of the while the previously mention little one was sound asleep and not startled awake by and unnecessary alarm. in addition the the nest thermostat I have had for several years now, I plan on adding more nest product to my home.

    We live in an apartment and one night our CO alarm went off. We have a young infant and of course evacuated the apartment and called maintenance. They came and said it was the battery, My wife was not 100% about it being the battery and decided to purchase the Nest. This allowed us to put in our infants room to ensure everything was safe for her. It paired right up to our ios app and tested right away. It has been that one tool you forget about but we know if anything does come up our family will be safe.
