Nest Protect: Smoke + CO alarm is the newest product by Nest. Nest is looking at the smoke alarm in a whole new way. "Be informed. Not alarmed."
The new alarm has great features. First of all, it has a light ring that changes five colors to notify you about different situations. Blue when it is ready to be set up and configured, Green to let you know everything is working and you're safe, White at night that provides a soft light path when you pass beneath it, Yellow for an early warning sign, and Red in an emergency. Not only does it change color and sound an alarm in an emergency, it also speaks to you letting you know WHAT the problem is and WHERE in the house it is located. "Emergency. There's smoke in the living room".
Connect your phone with Nest Protect so you can monitor your home while you are away. If you are not home during the emergency Nest Protect sends a message to your phone. Another great aspect is that Nest Protect works with your Nest Thermostat. In the event of a carbon monoxide emergency, the Nest thermostat will automatically turn off your gas furnace.
What a great product. Can't wait to use this in one of our next custom built homes!
