Nest Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarms

 “The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector is the most advanced system I have ever seen. Not only does it talk, it tells what and where the problem is located. It has a photoelectric sensor for smoke, a heat sensor for fire and a carbon monoxide sensor for total protection. Any smoke detector over ten years old should be replaced. This is the one I recommend. The cost is around $99.00 each, but what is the safety of your family worth?”….Rod Harrison

The following is from Nest’s Website:
“In the 1970s, it would take about 30 minutes for a fire to take over a room. Today, it can take as little as 5.”
…Underwriters Laboratory

Redefining the smoke and carbon monoxide alarm
We believe a smoke alarm should do more than chirp, blink or yell at you. So we created Nest Protect. It required new thinking. New sensors. New algorithms. We couldn’t just tweak, we had to invent. And it required testing. And more testing. And even more testing. And it was worth it. Because we changed what a smoke alarm can be.

Know more, worry less.
In an emergency, every second counts. So Nest Protect makes the most of every single one.
Nest Protect gives you information, not just alarms. It tells you what the problem is and where it is. And in case you’re away from home, it sends a message to your phone. Because a beep simply isn’t enough.

A clear voice when things go wrong.
Not only does Nest Protect sound an alarm, it also speaks to you with a human voice.
It tells you if there’s smoke or carbon monoxide, which room it’s in, and if you’re in immediate danger. So you can quickly figure out the best way to exit your home and avoid running into fire on the way out. 

More than one color. To tell you more than one thing.
The Nest Protect light ring can display different colors depending on what’s going on.

This is going to be easy.
Both Nest Protect™ (Battery) and Nest Protect™ (Wired 120V) take only minutes to install.
Connecting to Wi-Fi and setting them up with your iPhone, iPad or Android device also takes just a few minutes. Every Nest Protect in your home will connect to the others automatically.


Emergencies are unpredictable. So unlike other smoke alarms, Nest Protect makes sure you know what’s going on – even when you’re away from home.

Know what your smoke and CO alarm knows.
Nest Protect will send a message to your phone or tablet if there’s a problem. But if you want, you can check on things at any time. Just open the Nest app to see the status of your Nest Protects.

Learn and prepare.
Use the What To Do feature inside the Nest app to create a plan before you ever need it. Choose a family meeting point and add phone numbers for your local fire and police departments. In an emergency, the Nest app will give you helpful tips depending on the problem.

To figure out if you need the wired or battery version of Nest Protect, just check which kind of smoke alarm you have now, then switch it out for the same type. After that, you just have to pick a color. White or black?

Low on time?
A professional can help with installation.
