Pure Innovation In Nest Protect Smoke Alarm

The company that made its mark with the innovative Next thermostat has launched Nest Protect smoke alarm ($129), a “smart” smoke alarm.

Here’s what makes Nest Protect different from regular smoke alarms:

  • Silence alarms with a wave – No more swinging with at your smoke alarm with brooms or towels. A wave of your hand is all it takes.
  • Alert before alarm – A friendly alert lets you handle burning toast before a piercing alarm goes off.
  • Phone updates – Nest Protect sends a message to your phone if the alarm goes off or if batteries run low, without those annoying low-battery chirps.

In addition to an alarm sound, Nest Protect speaks to you with a human voice. Watch this company video:

Nest Protect is another example of innovative hardware brought to you by sheer ingenuity.
