There for you.

Get started

Set up and test
Nest Protect glows blue during setup and testing. Use the Nest app to tell each Nest Protect where it will be. The app is available for both iOS and Android. Once your alarms are set up and installed, run a manual test by pressing the Nest button twice. All the alarms in your home will test themselves and let you know everything’s working well.

Know you’re safe

Nightly Promise
Nest Protect constantly checks its sensors and batteries. When you turn off the lights for the night, look for a quick green glow – that means it’s working. Sweet dreams. If it glows yellow when you turn out the lights, Nest Protect has a message for you. Just push the Nest button or open the app to see what’s wrong. The batteries may be low, Wi-Fi might have gone down or a sensor may not be working.

A light in the dark

Pathlight
When it’s dark, Nest Protect lights your way as you walk underneath it. To see how often Pathlight is turning on, check theNest app. If your Nest Protect is wired, you can set Pathlight to Always On and it will glow whenever the room is dark.

An early warning

Thinks before it speaks
Nest Protect gives you a friendly Heads-Up before it sounds the alarm. The light ring pulses yellow and it calmly tells you what the danger is and where it is.

They talk to each other
If one Nest Protect senses danger, every Nest Protect in the house speaks up. So the Nest Protect in the bedroom can tell you if there’s smoke in the living room.

Quiet it down
Simply press the Nest button or use the app to silence Nest Protect. Hushing the  Nest Protect to detect the problem will also hush the others.

A clear voice in an emergency

Emergency Alarms
When smoke or CO reaches dangerous levels, all of your Nest Protects tell you where the emergency is, pulse red, and make a loud sound.

Know what happened

Safety History
It’s hard to remember what happens in an emergency. So Nest Protect does it for you. The Nest app shows you the last 10 days’ worth of Heads-Up alerts and Emergency Alarms. You’ll see when an alert happened and why. You’ll also see peak CO levels so you know how serious things were.
