Nest Protect is the smartest smoke detector on the market. Its app sends alerts to your phone so you can silence false alarms or call for help no matter where you are.
- Split-Spectrum Smoke Detection
Nest created its own sensor, a photoelectric and LED hybrid, to eliminate radioactive material (found in ionization sensors) and enhance smoke detection.
If you have multiple alarms, they’ll talk to each other. When one alarm sounds, they’ll all be triggered to tell you exactly where the danger is coming from.
- Voice Alarm
Instead of a loud beep, you’ll hear a human voice if smoke is detected.
You get advanced protection and a bunch of extra features with Nest Protect, but they come with a higher price tag than most other smoke detectors.
- Higher Price
You’ll pay more than $100 for a single Nest Protect smoke alarm, which can make installing multiple devices cost prohibitive.
