Does your smoke detector really work? With Nest Protect smoke detection you’ll know it works. Burned a little popcorn, no need to get on a chair, just silence your nest smoke detector with included app features like hush mode. Monitored smoke detection gives you earlier notifications than traditional smoke and fire detectors. Most monitored smoke detectors can be paired with smart thermostats to work in conjunction. For instance if there was a fire the smart smoke detector would notify you via the app and also communicate with the thermostat to instruct it to stop the furnace or air conditioning. Remember oxygen feeds fires. A must have for pet owners.
