Annoyingly this has come up on the very evening I have installed two myself! Got them for not much more though, so it's not too bad

Ditto, got two from Amazon and installed them yesterday.
Good price though!
Are the batteri w easy to replace
Foes it need a subscription like the nest security cam ?
The price is fine, but i bought 2 of these for the exact same price Jan 2016. You'd have thought there would be a better price on them by now....a decent bit of kit though - easy to switch for an existing mains powered 'non-smart' smoke alarm. I'm not technical, and i did each one in about 10-15mins, so don't let that put you off th mains version..
No subscription needed for these. The batteries are easy to replace, yes.
Thanks OP was looking for a good deal on the wired version
Thanks, was looking for a 2nd unit.

Very. Each unit takes 6 AA-sized Lithium batteries which whilst quite expensive do last a decent amount of time even if you have all the features turned on.
Do these have a expiry date like other carbon monoxide detector? Thanks

Yes - I think it's 10 years but there will be a label on the back of the unit telling you its expiry date.
Because of the carbon monoxide detection is the whole thing only good for ten years? Our can the carbon monoxide detector be replaced?

10 years. The one I received from the Wolseley / PlumbCentre deal a few weeks back had 8.5 years remaining.

Whole unit I'm afraid.
Yes, it’s the same no matter what brand of detector you purchase, mains or battery.
Just the battery-powered ones left now

No, it foesn’t need a subscription and nether foes the nest thermostat.
Someone has expired it, but unexpired and edited deal to give link to the battery-powered ones which are still in stock. If this isn't the proper way to update the situation please let me know!

When other smoke alarms sell for £15 why we should buy this one. This is not like thermostat that you need to be involved everyday. As long as it works and good quality should be ok.

I love it. Big difference between £15 ones and these as these are smart.
They will alert me wherever I am on my phone to let me know the smoke alarm is going off.

Can also remotely test it from your phone.

You are right that there are cheaper options, but for different products. This is for those that see value in some of the smart home functions/features offered by Nest Protect. I for one value being kept in the loop remotely, through the app. I also like the Pathlight feature.

Whether or not you see this as value for money is your individual choice, but this seems to be a worthwhile deal in the sense that for those who know they want this product there is not currently a better price.

I don't get it?

£79 for a fire alarm with built in carbon monoxide alarm? Am I missing something? Are people really paying £65/70 extra to get a notification on there phone when the alarm. Goes off?! Really?!

What am I missing here?

How often do you get fire. You will say ‘when it happens....’. Alright, we can have smart of everything, when heart beats go up or down - alert, when water pipes burst - alert, car accident - alert. Life has too many risks. I can understand that some people have huge wealth and there has to be products for them to spend money on. But to market it as if it is for masses, I don’t get it.

I don't think there is anything to 'get'. These are just lifestyle choices, no right or wrong. People choose to spend their money on smoking, or the more expensive branded phones, or luxury cars, or any number of things where a cheaper option is available that will provide the same core function (or in the case of smoking, the cheapest option is not smoking which would be a big health benefit).

The water pipes bursting alert would actually be quite helpful!

Because if you already have the nest thermostat too, the carbon monixide alarm can switch off your Gas bolier when triggered. That feature alone makes the £70 difference a no brainer.

There are a myriad of reasons you’d take these (or any smart alternative) over the cheaper options, but for me the self testing feature, alerts for battery change (without obnoxious carry-on-until-changed-even-though-its-3am beeping) and the way they are named are my personal favourites.

Having had one of these go off legitimately, the woman’s calm and informative description of the problem was fantastic - “Smoke has been detected in the Kitchen” coming from my landing hallway protect - rather than just a siren going off somewhere in the house.

Alerting you there is a problem at home when you’re out is only one of the many things these do. I wouldn’t be without mine.

Self testing alone is a massive thing that is squarely aimed at the masses. Perhaps you religiously test all of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms every day before you go to bed, and check your calendar to make sure you renew them when the detector is shot, but I’d wager you’re in the minority.

These self test every 200 seconds, and let you know if anything at all is out of the ordinary. This is why they are (and should be) marketed to mass consumers.

Ah I see. So it's a family of tech all linked basically.

Don't get me wrong, it's not about outrage on why people spend extra, I just didn't get the whole scenario of the situation.
Interesting, BT listing these as stock clearance, does this mean there's a new version on the way? I'm holding off going down the Nest route as Google have properly taken over now and will no doubt give things a serious upgrade.

No problem. I can see where your coming from. But once I realised this could potentially switch off the source of a problem rather than alerting me when it was too late I was sold. I personally don't think Nest are not making enough of what I feel is their USP.
Now out of stock even though their website says 8 available (apparently their stock list isn't real time - when I called them)

When I purchased mine a while back I was dissapointed to see that the 10 year life is from day of manufacturer and that in fact the detector had little more like 9 years left. The app knows the manufacture date and I believe will disable the alarm once 10 years from manufacture expires.

Ah well, good while it lasted! For those who want two or more, and willing to pay £2 more for each, my post here points to a deal at Travis Perkins.

I wonder if the BT ones have less life than 10 years, similar to that mentioned by @Immoraliste earlier in the thread and thus "clearance" ?



My understanding from reading up is that the 2nd gen have full 10 years whereas the 1st gen is less

recently my smoke alarm had an issue and it kept beeping every one minute or so. really annoying beep. it was not battery issue but same happens if battery is low. and once my kitchen smoke alarm went off once and neighbour came to ask to switch it off. It was that annoying. What I am trying to say - most smoke alarms adhere to standards set by govt agencies and it helps in most cases and companies like Nest are just trying to make money out of people's fear. oohhh..fire , CO!, I have to buy Nest alarms.
