Nest Protect

Wow, the folks at Nest have done it again:

Safety shouldn’t be annoying.

We all know why smoke alarms are torn off the ceiling or missing batteries: because every time you make stir-fry, the smoke alarm cries wolf. Or just as you’re falling asleep, you hear a low-battery chirp. They’ve become annoying. And that’s a safety issue.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), almost two-thirds of US home fire deaths happened in homes with no smoke alarm or no working smoke alarm.

So we made something new. Meet the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm.

Nest Protect in a sentence:

We made a smoke and CO alarm you’ll love, because hating it is dangerous.

Until seeing this, I never imaged someone would utter the words, I love my smoke alarm.”

It’ll cost you though. They aren’t giving these things away.
