Before people vote cold... think about the amount of money you spend on items which aren’t life safety and don’t last 10 years. I love having nest alarms, real peace of mind, great notifications and fantastic motion detection night light. HOT

I have these hard wired (was required with my extension) absolutely lovely bit of kit. Yes they are expensive for a “smoke alarm” but when you think it could save the lives of your family £90 is a steal! I paid 109 each for mine and still feel it was a bargain. Very clever bit of kit in my humble opinion
Good price and brilliant kit, I’ve got 4 in the house and great peace of mind with the notifications
If you want as many as 3, I believe you can get them direct from Nest for the same price until end of 2nd April.
aint these £87.20 @ Maplin (Click & Collect Only) if your intrested or wanna take a risk as the price might come down again but good deal otherwise

Are these still false-alarming at all hours of the day and night?

But these will only last 10 years - like all smoke alarms.

Yeah, which is why we're buying them, as we like a challenge.

Correct and your point is?
Ordered. Thanks.

The fact this device tells the Nest thermostat to turn off the boiler in event of CO2 detection, makes it well worth the additional money.

No, that was the Gen.1 Protect which was recalled and fixed.

You could kit out an average house with smoke alarms, heat arms and CO alarms specific to every room for less than this. That would be much safer.

That is the point

Well thanks for your personal opinion. What others spend their money on, has nothing to do with you.

I am sure you're not interested in others pointing out your personal purchases.
I’ve got two, never had a false alarm in the 2 ½ years they’ve been up, and if they have a lifespan of 10 years, that’s £9 a year, which is the equivalent to 75p a month. Double that as I have two, £1.50 a month. That’s not a bad price really. I know you don’t pay for it like that but people making issue with the price just bewilders me. Do you you point and laugh people who buy expensive cars?

The app went off the other day to tell me there was smoke in the hall whilst I was at work, but my other half messaged me instantly to tell me I was getting burnt sausages for tea. The week prior to that, my neighbour text me to say he’d heard my alarm, but I was able to tell him it was ok as the app told me it had just performed a self check. So 1) my neighbour heard it and did do something about it, and 2) it checked itself and told me it was ok.

I think they’re worth the money and I don’t regret buying mine at all. In an age where everything is becoming digital why shouldn’t smoke detectors evolve too?

Oh, and just for reference: ours are in the landing and hall: the smoke from a candle in our bedroom (don’t ask lol) set it off, so two is plenty: 30’s semi for reference.

If you're silly enough not to put one near the boiler then you're beyond help anyway....
Self testing
Warning away from home - and updates
Able to disable if false alarm
Prewarning
Night Light
Boiler disable if Carbon Monoxide detected with Nest Thermo - can work with Hive though less direct via IFTT

On the other side I did look into alternatives and unless I wanted two alarms in each room to cover interconnected smoke and carbon monoxide alarms the cost was started to creep towards the nest.

Like others have said when I added up the cost of fitting four of them 10p a day is nothing for the piece of mind and benefits they give.

Carbon Monoxide leakage.

£90 by the boiler then, £90 hallway and £90 on the landing. That's £270 before even considering any other high risk areas. Bargain.
Waldolf sorry but your the one being just argumentative

You ignore the benefits that your solution which you actually haven't shown,doesn't cover, and so in the same example above you would need a linked carbon monoxide alarm in boiler room and on the hallway and then say a linked fire alarm on the other two locations

So linked Carbon Monoxide say Fireangels at £50 each and then the two linked fire alarms Fireangel again £40 each so £180 for less feature rich solution with the nest, or if you put all in each room its £280 so more and with less benefits.

If you just want basic fire alarms all fine, but just because others see the benefits you cant doesn't mean they are wrong or as you claim less safe.

You have hit the nail on the head.
Unfortunately there are always those who come on here telling others how to spend their money and that the item they are looking at is pointless or far too expensive for what it is. If I wish to spend twice or three times the amount on something that I feel is superior / an improvement, then so be it. As you have pointed out in your comment, we don't all drive around in the cheapest car on the market!

I honestly think these negative people should stick to pound land.
Anyone know how to set up an account with a trade number?
Also just to add I successfully got John Lewis to price match this deal.

That all depends on the boiler make, in the case of my Intergas the gas valve is removed to access the heat exchanger cover that’s then removed and cleaned out, also clean out the condenser trap. Once put back together with the sealed cover a reading is taken from the flue at low and high power accessed through the service menu, these reading then prove the boiler is burning correctly and safely with no leaks.

Would you be kind enough to explain how I could disable my combi boiler using Hive Thermostat with Nest Protect if carbon monoxide is detected?
Thanks

Absolutely spot on! Everyone just needs to vote on whether its a good deal for the particular item, there are better places to get views, reviews and opinions. The car example is a perfect one, as somebody who just wants a functional car that gets me from A to B I'd vote pretty much every car deal cold if I thought the same way as the people criticising this deal.

Yes. The Nest thermo talks to the boiler wirelessly and this talks to the Nest thermo.

It’s just a case of detecting carbon monoxide, sending a wireless notification to the thermo, which switches the boiler off.

Bear in mind all devices are on the same network at this point.
