It is a highly reliable and amazing part of the Nest product line, and gives you fingertip access to notifications, device history, and diagnostic capability. By simply navigating to the Protect menu items within your Nest app on your phone or tablet, you can click on the History or Checkup option for each and every device.
Running your Checkup diagnostic literally takes only one minute:
It allows you to have fingertip access and notification whenever there is an emergency in your home that can impact your home, your valuables, and the very precious persons within your home. If you want immediate notification to your smart phone or tablet whenever dangerous levels of smoke or carbon monoxide is detected in your child's bedroom, then this Nest protection device is definitely a must-have for your smart home configuration.
It also offers an amazing value to your home as a selling point. Selling a home that is filled with various smart home devices which offers enhanced security, peace of mind, and easy manageability, is far easier when that home is competing against a similarly configured home without those features.
The Nest Smoke Alarm & Carbon Monoxide Detector is also available as a battery powered device and can be purchased within several money saving package deals:
The Nest Protect has a motion sensor. So, why does a motion sensor offer any extra value to a smoke and carbon monoxide detector?
Firstly, it offers a hush feature. Let's say you are burning something in your kitchen, which triggers your Nest Protect, but this is not an emergency and you'd like to silence the alarm. If you don't have immediate access to your phone, you can wave your hand at the alarming device and it will hush the alarm. This becomes extremely handy when your home has high ceilings and you cannot press the Nest button at the center of the Protect, which also works to hush your device when pressed.
Secondly, your Nest Protect senses when you are approaching the device and lights up the LED light ring surrounding the Nest button in the middle. This is extremely handy when all of the lights are off in your home in the dead of night. It offers a little bit of extra light when you're walking beneath the Nest Protect device, thus minimizing walking into walls or doors, and possibly even the avoidance of stepping on a painful toy that your child may have left there for your enjoyment.
All-in-all, the Nest Smoke Alarm & Carbon Monoxide Detector is a smart investment. They are extremely easy to install, both wired and battery powered versions, offer immediate protection and convenience, and offers a significant lifespan as a technology device. You don't see an abundance of complaints, or customers reporting issues with their Nest devices, so it offers a proven and lasting value in your home.
There is definitely something to be said about being able to take your home protection notifications with you, instead of having to worry about the safety and security of your home whenever you're away. Especially when you have children in your home, having the knowledge that if there is an emergency in your home that you will be notified, and that you can immediately take emergency actions, is an immeasurable value.
