If you’ve ever worried about what’s going on in your home while you’re at work, on vacation, or letting your teenager babysit for the night, you need this Alexa-enabled smoke and carbon monoxide alarm from Nest.

How It Works

The Nest Protect is an Alexa-enabled detector that talks you through what’s going on in your house instead of beeping. The clear spoken messages let you know if carbon monoxide levels are high in the living room or if something is burning in the kitchen. It’s also smartphone compatible, so you can receive alerts while you’re away from home.

Continuous Coverage

If you’ve ever dealt with a smoke alarm that won’t stop randomly beeping, you know the frustration of wondering whether it’s a dead battery or another malfunction. The Nest Protect performs automatic battery self-checks so you’ll know if the battery is running low and when to replace it.
