First came smart TVs. Then smart light bulbs, thermostats, and even smart refrigerators. It only makes sense that a smart smoke alarm would soon follow. Meet the new and improved Nest Protect. This smart smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is able to zero-in on any potential hazards, sending accurate and immediate information straight to your smartphone — even when you’re not home.

Using state-of-the-art split-spectrum sensors, the Nest Protect can detect smoke and carbon monoxide faster than traditional alarm systems. The voice-activated monitor actually tells you exactly where the smoke or carbon dioxide is coming from and even gives you detailed steps on what to do next.

Every Nest Protect is equipped with a worry-free 10-year battery and comes with a sleek and smart look and feel. It’s even able to give you an early warning before an alarm goes off. That way, you’re able to turn the stove off before it starts beeping. It also happens to be the first — and only — smoke alarm system you can actually silence from your phone.

Best of all, it’s extremely easy to install. Simply connect the Nest Protect to your home’s WiFi system, sync it your smartphone or tablet and you’re set. Once your Protect is connected, every additional Nest alarm will automatically be included. Don’t settle for an outdated smoke alarm. Your home deserves a Nest Protect.
