The New Gadget in the Nest...

Nest introduces the Nest Protect. As I reported last week, Nest did indeed announce the Nest Protect Smoke detector today. A total revolution on the concept of the traditional smoke detector, the Protect is loaded with next generation tech and yet manages to squeeze several months of operation from 6 "AA" batteries. Check out the video below to see the amazing new networked home safety device. Check out the Nest Protect site HERE...

Safety shouldn't be annoying. The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm quiets down when you wave - no more swinging towels or brooms - and messages your phone when its batteries run low. Nest Protect speaks with a human voice, telling you where and what the danger is, and gives you a friendly Heads-Up before turning on a loud alarm.
