You can’t have a home without a smoke detector, but let’s face it- most of having a smoke detector is just fanning it with a dish towel because you burnt the paella. So Nest decided to do something to curb the annoyance factor, and it’s called Protect.
This smart smoke and carbon-monoxide detector doesn’t sound like the start of a nuclear war when smoke is detected. Instead the unit a friendly warning that there’s a potential threat, and allows you to instantly disarm it with just the waive of a hand. If the unit goes off or needs to batteries, Protect sends an update to your phone or tablet, giving you a piece of mind when not at home.
You can pick up one here for $129. Oh, and it looks pretty cool too.
