Nest Protect Smoke + CO Alarm review
Test resultShow Context
The Nest Protect Smoke + CO Alarm can send alerts about dangerous levels of carbon monoxide or smoke direct to your smartphone, which is a handy touch if you’re out of the house at the time. This more advanced two-in-one functionality, along with its 10-year lifespan, pushes the price up far above the price of a standard CO alarm. This review is of how well the Nest detects CO, but it's also a smoke alarm and since testing it, the law on smoke alarms has changed in Scotland. This means that as the Nest doesn't come with a heat detection function, it won't be suitable for Scottish homes from 2022. We put the Nest Protect Smoke + CO Alarm through a series of stringent carbon monoxide safety detection tests to find out how well it detects the deadly gas. Read on for the results of our tests.What's included:
