Nest unveils the all-new Nest Protect smoke detector
Alongside the announcement of the all-new Nest Cam, the now Google-owned company has revealed its second generation Nest Protect smoke alarm. Available for pre-order for just $99, the Nest Protect (2nd Gen.) comes with a number of notable improvements that should help draw many consumers in to the connected home craze.
It also has a new sensor that’s able to differentiate between fast and slow fires, as well as a handy humidity sensor that will halt the device from going off due to steam. Unlike normal smoke detectors that last anywhere between five or seven years at a time, the new Nest Protect comes with a projected lifetime of ten years.
You can now pre-order both battery-powered and wired models from Amazon, The Google Store and through Nest’s website for $99. If you choose to order through Nest, you’ll be able to score an exclusive Black model. Additionally, you can now purchase the original Nest Protect for $79 from The Google Store.
