    Fantastic product and worth every penny imho. Have one of these and a nest thermostat. Dad lives with me and it alerted me at work that their was smoke in the house.Dad had left the oven on and food was burning (no real risk of fire) whilst he was in the garden. My phone was alerted, I called him and situation resolved. That’s got to be worth £90
    That's not the only thing missing, the nest has a night light that will illuminate whenever you walk under, handy for getting up in the middle of the night to see where you're going without putting a light on, and another function is if you have a nest thermostat, and it senses carbon monoxide, as well as the alarm it will shut down your heating system.

    I've had mine for years. Standard ones are fine, this is better. I'd buy another.

    Not voting either way on this- had a Nest Protect (battery), that was replaced twice but still kept on going off at 4 or 5 in the morning for no good reason. Replaced it with a traditional alarm and pleased to say we're not dead yet and sleeping better than we did with the Nest.
    over priced for what it is. You can get a standard one for way cheaper and does the same job, only thing thats missing is thats it not smart so no app functions or alerts but who cares as long as it still alerts you when needed.

    I posted this deal for whoever wants the nest protect. I do like a smart home. However voting cold just because are other types... Always will be mercedes and mg. Or iPhone X and Nokia 3310

    You can get all the components cheaper though, like I have motion sensing battery powered nightlights scattered about my roof. The thing you're paying for here is the combination of one CO sensor, one smoke detector and a nightlight all combined. Does going from 3 boxes to 1 justify spending an extra 60GBP? Not in my opinion still, but maybe someone's going for a minimalist look at home.

    Please at least read up before commenting.....

    Simply not true "does the same job" these have 3 separate types of sensors and the ability to alert you anywhere in the world, I have these and they are superb, if you also have the nest camera you can also get visual confirmation.

    They also have voice announcements to tell you it's about to go off and in what room it's been detected.

    Additionally they have a presence sensor with night light, so when you walk under it at night you get a soft glow nightlight which also works as an additional zone presence sensors to assist the nest thermostat to decide if you are home and where is occupied.

    Why would you need to know anywhere in the world? As long as you're not in the house you're safe.


    Cant' give this heat, might set the alarm off.

    Oh sure it's not minimalist or pretty but it's the ceiling so I don't look at it often :P

    I'm trying to match it and it's hard. Ignoring voice announcements (because no one hears a smoke alarm and thinks "I wonder what that could mean") you've got motion sensing battery powered nightlights at ikea for a fiver each plus batteries. Carbon monoxide is relatively expensive at 20 pounds each. A two pack of ionisation smoke alarms is 13 pounds. If you want an optical smoke alarm on top of that it's an extra tenner.

    So let's say 50 pounds for the same functionality as a Nest but spread across many different devices. It's possibly worth 40 pounds extra to consolidate those into one so long as there are no compromises but unfortunately there are some, a carbon monoxide sensor is meant to go close to the ground while a smoke alarm is meant to go high up so combining them doesn't make sense. As for nightlights, I want one of those every 2-3 metres but I definitely don't need that many smoke alarms so again why combine them?

    Great for this type of situation I'd be home in a flash false alarm or not. Outside of a risk to life I would always wonder if there was a false alarm whilst away from home and possibly be on "alert" myself when I had these installed. Most people would struggle to leave work or another situation because they had a remote alarm by a detector at home. I'm not sure about phoning the fire brigade based on this either.

    I like to know my home is safe, for example if your alarms went off when you were abroad are you happy to return to a pile of rubble when you could have prevented it rather than call the fire brigade?

    Voice announcements tell you rising smoke levels before it goes off and in which room, preventing you retreating toward a fire.

    But there is one bonus with your setup, you'll never need to paint any ceilings, as you have no space left!

    What about remote monitoring and presence detection for the heating with your hideous setup?

    Hmm this is something I’ve wondered about before - the fact a smoke alarm is normally on the ceiling/higher up and a carbon monoxide detector is supposed to be located at a lower level as I believe CO is a heavier gas so tends to drop to a lower level. Manufacturers of this have obviously worked something out though so it can sense at whatever level. I like the product and functions, but it’s certainly expensive. Heat for the deal though as seems the cheapest available

    Not happy, but if everyone is safe a house can be rebuilt and insurance will pay for it. If I was abroad and the alarm goes off how much quicker am I likely to notice the fire than a neighbour or passer by who'd call the fire brigade anyway? Chances are if the house is on fire and locked up it's likely to be severely damaged by fire and the process of putting it out regardless.

    In that scenario all that happens is my holiday is ruined by knowing my house has burned down slightly sooner than I'd otherwise find out.

    What a nugget....


    What if your home subsequently burned down and injured/killed a neighbour?

    What about the irreplaceable items?

    What if you don't have neighbours?

    What if its a second home?

    What if its the home of a disabled/elderly relative?


    A fire alarm detects way faster than a neighbour would especially if it happens at night.

    All of which could still happen with the alarm. If its the middle of the night I could sleep through the phone notification.

    Irreplaceable items could still be lost to even a minor fire that has been put out quickly (I'd you accept that any household object is truly irreplaceable anyway,) and if the relative is elderly or disabled there are much better suited professional products designed specifically for that, complete with 3rd party monitoring and panic alarms.

    But that only works with multiple right? Like if I have one per room they'll all say "smoke detected in the kitchen"? So in my case I'm to pay 9 lots of 90 pounds? That feels like a lot of money to spend on smoke alarms, even good ones.

    No presence detection, just timers set as smartly as possible. Then again I don't have central heating, only electric convection heaters in each room. Those are hooked up to Google Assistant though so there's nothing stopping me adding say a xiaomi zigbee hub then a motion sensor to each room.

    So can I clarify you think this product is no better than a standard smoke alarm in your opinion?

    All fire safety is based on speed of detection and action, that is a fact! any device that can reduce this time is very beneficial.

    The added bonus of the night light and energy efficiency gains of occupancy detection just add to the appeal.

    The professional solutions you mention also cost a huge amount more than this item.

    That huge amount more would be a small price to pay to keep alive a loved one though surely?

    To clarify, I do not believe the additional benefits justify the additional cost over a standard smoke alarm. At best they're very situational and at worst marketing fluff.

    There seems to be quite a lot of confusion as to where it is best to position CO alarms. At room temperature, CO is NOT heavier than air and will not layer on the bottom or on the top of air. It will mix equally with air so it doesn't matter where you position a CO alarm.

    For some empirical evidence see the following link:

    ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pub…403

    Hope this helps someone out.

    I've been wanting to purchase one or two of these to go with my Nest Thermostat but want to know if these second generation versions are as effective as having a high quality dual sensor containing an ionizing detector and a photoelectric sensor. I heard that the first generation Nest protects were not.
    Thanks OP bought 4.

    They probably live in a council flat and literally don't care if it burns down.
    I got the battery one of this. Had it up for almost a couple of years I think. No point getting a hard wired one when battery works just as good and lasts for years before needing a battery change.

    Unless you already have a wires behind where you plan to put this that is.

    Never had a false alarm either from mine.

    I need three new hardwired smoke detectors as part of building regs for an extension. I think I'm going to give the NEST ones a shot. This seems a good price as I'm being charged £100 per nest.
