Remember the Nest Protect smoke alarm? The next version of the device is now here. The Nest Protect 2nd-gen is a smart device that detects fast and slow burning fires and sends alerts to your phone when you are not home. The device tells you what’s wrong, so you will have an easier time addressing it. Nest Protect detects levels of smoke and carbon monoxide throughout your home. It is wired directly to your electrical system and has a backup battery.
Nest Protect has sensors that can be synchronized, so if one detects something, other alarms go off as well. The Pathlight activity sensor helps you see in the dark. The product will be available for $99.
