Google Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm

MEET YOUR NEST PROTECT

Nest Protect is designed to detect smoke and carbon monoxide in a residential environment. It has multiple sensors to help it understand what’s happening in your home, including a Split-Spectrum Sensor to detect a wide range of slow-smoldering and fast-flaming fires. This guide covers the installation of Nest Protect (Battery) – Model number 06A.

Inside the box you’ll find:

Tip:
To double-check Nest Protect’s room name, press the Nest button once. You’ll hear the location you assigned it during setup. It’ll say something like, “Ready in the bedroom.”

Location in your home
The National Fire Protection Association  (NFPA) recommends installing a smoke alarm in the following areas:

  • On every floor, including finished attics  and basements
  • Inside and outside every sleeping area.
  • At the top of the first-to-second-floor stairway and on the basement ceiling near the entry of the stairs.
  • In homes with more than 1,000 square feet (93 m2) on one level, additional alarms may be required.

Nest Protect should be installed at least 10 feet (3 m) away from cooktops or cooking appliances. Nest Protect should NOT be installed in unfinished attics or garages.

HEADS-UP AND EMERGENCY ALARMS

ALERTS
When Nest Protect has something to say, it will speak to you in words and light up instead of just beeping. Nest Protect has two kinds of voice alerts: Heads-Up and Emergency Alarms. When smoke or carbon monoxide levels are heightened but haven’t yet reached Emergency Alarm levels, Nest Protect can sound a Heads-Up as an early warning. Nest Protect will pulse yellow and tell you where there’s smoke or carbon monoxide.

You’ll get an Emergency Alarm when smoke or carbon monoxide reaches critical levels. NestProtect will pulse red, sound a loud alarm, and tell you what room the emergency is in. If both smoke and CO are present, the smoke alarm will take priority.

SILENCING
Heads-up alerts and some Emergency Alarms can be hushed by using the Nest app or pressing the Nest button. In some cases, the smoke level may be too high for the Emergency Alarm to be hushed. Only silence an alarm once you have checked the conditions at the Nest Protect that first sounded the alarm. Do not silence Nest Protect by removing the batteries.

This will disable the alarm so it cannot sense smoke or carbon monoxide, leaving you at risk. Because there are many different types of fires, you may experience an Emergency alarm without having first experienced a Heads-Up alert. This means that critical levels of smoke or CO occurred extremely quickly and Nest Protect has to sound the Emergency Alarm.

HAVE MORE THAN ONE NEST PROTECTED?
After all the Nest Protects in your home are connected, if there’s a Heads-Up or an Emergency Alarm in one room, they’ll all tell you what the danger is and which room it’s in.

If multiple Nest Protects are interconnected, a Heads-Up alert or Emergency Alarm can be silenced only at the Nest Protect that originally sounded the alert. You’ll need to go to that room to silence all the Nest Protects in your home. Always check the conditions near the NestProtect that first detected the smoke or carbon monoxide before silencing it.

DAILY USE AND EMERGENCY PREPARATION

DAILY USE NIGHTLY PROMISE
Nest Protect continuously tests itself, so you don’t have to wonder if it’s working. Nightly Promise reports on every Nest Protect in your home. When you turn out the lights for the night, Nest Protect will glow green for a moment – that means everything is working. If it glows yellow, one of the Nest Protects in your home needs your attention. For instance, the batteries are low, Wi-Fi is down, or there’s an issue with the sensors. Just push the Nest button or use the Nest app to see what’s wrong.

PATHLIGHT
Usually, Nest Protect has its light turned off, but it can light your way as you walk underneath it in the dark. You can enable or disable Pathlight and set its brightness with the Nest app.

EMERGENCY PREPARATION TESTING
Perform a manual test of your battery-powered Nest Protect at least weekly. During a test, all interconnected Nest Protects in your home check their sensors, power, Wi-Fi connection, emergency horn, speaker, and microphone. When you run a test, Nest Protect will give you a countdown before sounding the alarm so you have time to move away from the loud noise.

Test procedure:

  1. Start a test by pressing the Nest button twice.
  2. Nest Protect will say: “This is only a test. The alarm will sound.”
  3. Ensure that the alarm sounds and the light illuminates each Nest Protect.
  4. Once the Nest Protect has made sure it’s working, it’ll tell you everything’s okay. If you have interconnected Nest Protects, all of them should speak.

DAILY USE AND EMERGENCY PREPARATION

WARNING

  • DO NOT stand close to the alarm when the horn is sounding. Exposure at close range may be harmful to your hearing. When testing, step away before the horn starts sounding.
  • If the alarm ever fails to test correctly,  have it replaced immediately! If the alarm is not working properly, it cannot alert you to a problem.
  • DO NOT use a match, cigarette, or any other makeshift fire to test the smoke alarm.
  • To test the CO alarm, NEVER use vehicle exhaust! Exhaust may cause permanent damage and will void your warranty.
  • NEVER use an open flame of any kind to test this alarm. You might accidentally damage or set fire to the unit or your home.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE

CLEANING YOUR NEST PROTECTS
Nest Protect has been designed to be as maintenance-free as possible but you should keep it clean. As with any smoke alarm, dust buildup on the outside or inside of Nest Protect can stop it from working properly.

To clean Nest Protect:

  1. Remove it from the wall or the ceiling (turn counterclockwise until it comes off the backplate).
  2. Wipe the outside with a clean, slightly damp cloth. Don’t use any soaps or solvents.
  3. Place Nest Protect on a soft, dry cloth with the Nest button facing down. Open the battery compartment door and remove the batteries. Remove the screws and lift off the back. Be careful to not lose the screws.
  4. Gently vacuum the inside. Make sure to clean around the mesh sides of the smoke chamber (the large metal circle).

Note:
Never use detergents or solvents (like glass cleaner) on your Nest Protect and do not spray air fresheners, hair spray, or other aerosols near it. Do not get water inside the alarm or paint over it.

REPLACING THE BATTERIES
Nest Protect uses six AA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries (L91). These batteries can be purchased at your local retailer.

  1. Twist Nest Protect counterclockwise until it disconnects from the backplate.
  2. Open the battery door on the back of Nest Protect.
  3. Replace the batteries. Align the + positive and – negative ends with the markings in the battery compartment.
  4. Close the battery compartment. Do not force the door closed.
  5. Push Nest Protect onto the backplate and turn it clockwise until you feel its grip.
  6. Press the Nest button twice.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE

Google Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm 16

WARNING

  • Use only batteries specified by Nest. The use of a different battery model will have a detrimental effect on the smoke alarm operation.
  • Never remove the batteries to stop an unwanted alarm (caused by cooking smoke, etc.) Removing the batteries disables the alarm so it cannot sense smoke or carbon monoxide (CO). Instead, open a window or fan the smoke away from the unit.
  • The batteries cannot work until you install the batteries in the correct position (Match + to + and – to -).
  • Once Nest Protect has expired you’ll no longer be protected from smoke or CO if you don’t replace it.

WIRELESS INTERCONNECT

Nest Protects connect wirelessly to each other so that when one speaks, they all speak. That means when one Nest Protect raises any kind of alert, every Nest Protect in the house will tell you which room the smoke or CO is in. For example, if you’re in the bedroom and the alarm goes off in the basement, the Nest Protect in the bedroom will tell you where the smoke or CO is. To silence the alert, go to the room where the alarm was triggered.

All of the Nest Protects in the house can be hushed from there. Either press the button on the Nest Protect or use theNest app to hush the alarm. Nest Protect – Battery (model numbers 05A and 06A) and Nest Protect – Wired 120V (model numbers 05C and 06C) are compatible and can be interconnected wirelessly. Nest Protect wireless interconnect will not work with other smoke or CO alarms from other brands.

Nest Protect’s 120V connector does not have a red/orange/yellow wire for interconnecting because it connects wirelessly. There’s no need to connect any Nest Protect wire to the red/ orange/yellow interconnect wire coming from the ceiling or wall. Nest Protects can typically communicate with each other if they’re 50 feet (15 m) or less apart inside a home.

Some features of a home may reduce Protect’s wireless interconnect range including the number of floors, number and size of rooms, furniture, type of building materials, suspended ceilings, ductwork, large metal appliances, and metal studs. This kind of interference is overcome by adding mormovementotects that can route wireless signals around obstructions.

WARNING

  • The range and proper operation of any wireless device will vary depending on its surroundings.
  • Nest Protect alarms are not to be used outdoors or to transmit between buildings. The alarms will not communicate properly in those conditions.
  • Metal objects and metallic wallpaper may interfere with signals from wireless alarms. Test your Nest Protects with metal doors opened and closed.

SAFETY

ALARM LIMITATIONS

LIMITATIONS OF SMOKE ALARMS
Alarms reduce deaths resulting from home fires worldwide. However, smoke alarms can only work if they are properly located, installed, and maintained, and if smoke reaches the alarms.

  • Smoke alarms may not wake all individuals. Make sure you create an escape plan and practice fire drills with all members of the family.
  • Smoke alarms cannot work without power. If they are powered by batteries, the smoke alarms cannot work if the batteries are missing, dead, or disconnected. If they are wired, the smoke alarms cannot work during a long power outage and once the backup battery is dead. Nest Protect will warn you when batteries are running low so that you can replace them.
  • Smoke will not be able to reach the smoke sensor while the dust cover is in place. The dust cover must be removed.
  • Smoke alarms cannot detect fires if the smoke does not reach the alarms. For example, if a door is closed, smoke may not reach the smoke alarm. This is why you should have a smoke alarm in each bedroom and the hallways as bedroom doors may be closed at night.
  • Smoke alarms may not be heard. Although the smoke alarm comes with a loud horn of85 decibels, it may not be heard if: 1) people have consumed alcohol or drugs, 2) the alarm is drowned by noise from a stereo, TV, traffic, air conditioner, or other appliances, 3) residents are hearing impaired or have high-frequency hearing loss associated with aging. Special smoke alarms should be installed for those who are hearing impaired.
  • This smoke alarm is not intended to alert hearing-impaired residents. Alarms specifically designed for the hearing impaired, which feature devices like flashing strobe lights or low-frequency devices are available to alert the hearing impaired in case of fire.
  • This smoke alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete fire detection systems in places housing many people— like apartment buildings, condominiums,    hotels, motels, dormitories, hospitals, long-term health care facilities, nursing homes daycare facilities, or group homes of any kind—even if they were once single-family homes.
  • It is not a suitable substitute for complete fire detection systems in warehouses, industrial facilities, commercial buildings, and special-purpose nonresidential buildings which require special fire detection and alarm systems. Depending on the building codes in your area, this smoke alarm may be used to provide additional protection in these facilities.

LIMITATIONS OF CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) ALARMS

  • NEVER ignore your carbon monoxide alarm if it alarms. Refer to “What to do in case of a carbon monoxide alarm” for more information. Failure  to do so can result in injury or death
  • This CO alarm is designed for use inside a single-family home or apartment. It is not meant to be used in common lobbies, hallways, or basements of multi-family buildings unless working CO alarms are also installed in each family living unit. CO alarms in common areas may not be heard from inside individual family living units.
  • This CO alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete detection systems in places that house many people, like hotels or dormitories, unless a CO alarm is also placed in each unit.
  • DO NOT use this CO alarm in warehouses, industrial or commercial buildings, special purpose non-residential buildings, or airplanes. This CO alarm is specifically designed for residential use, and may not provide adequate protection in non-residential applications.
  • Some individuals are more sensitive to CO than others, including people with cardiac or respiratory problems, infants, unborn babies, pregnant mothers, or elderly people can be more quickly and severely affected by CO. Members of sensitive populations should consult their doctors for advice on taking additional precautions.
  • The silence feature is for your convenience only and will not correct a CO problem. Always check your home for a potential problem after any alarm. Failure to do so can result in injury or death.

WHERE TO INSTALL YOUR SMOKE ALARMS
For your information, the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, NFPA 72, reads as follows:  “29.5.1 *Required Detection.” *Where required by applicable laws, codes, or standards for a specific type of occupancy, approved single- and multiple-station smoke alarms shall be installed as follows:

  1. In all sleeping rooms and guest rooms
  2. Outside of each separate dwelling unit sleeping area, within 21 ft (6.4 m) of any door to a sleeping room, the distance measured  along a path of travel
  3. On every level of a dwelling unit, including basements
  4. On every level of a residential board and care occupancy (small facility), including basements and excluding crawl spaces and unfinished attics
  5. In the living area(s) of a guest suite
  6. In the living area(s) of a residential board and care occupancy” (Reprinted with permission from NFPA 72®, National Fire Alarm & Signaling Code Copyright © 2013 National Fire Protection Association, Quincy, MA 02269.

SMOKE DETECTION

Are more smoke alarms desirable?
The required number of smoke alarms might not provide reliable early warning protection for those areas separated by a door from the areas protected by the required smoke alarms. For this reason, the use of additional smoke alarms for those areas for increased protection is recommended. The additional areas include the dining room, and hallways not protected by the required smoke alarms.

The installation of smoke alarms in kitchens, attics (finished or unfinished), or garages is not normally recommended, because these locations occasionally experience conditions that can result in improper operation. As Nest Protect is also a Carbon Monoxide alarm, it is not recommended to install it in a furnace room or a utility room if it contains a water heater or  a furnace. It should be 15-20 feet from these appliances to avoid transient conditions and/or perceived nuisance alarms.

PRACTICE FIRE SAFETY
Practice your escape plan at least twice a year,  making sure that everyone is involved – from kids to grandparents. Practice the escape plan with children, including holding one at night when they are sleeping. If children or others do not wake up to the sound of the smoke alarm, or if there are infants or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is assigned to help them during the fire drill and in the event of an emergency.

Current studies have shown smoke alarms may not awaken all sleeping individuals, and that it is the responsibility of individuals in the household who are capable of assisting others to assist those who may not be awakened by the alarm sound, or those who may be incapable of safely evacuating the area unassisted.

CALIFORNIA STATE FIRE MARSHAL
As stated by the California State Fire Marshal “Early warning fire detection is best achieved by the installation of fire detection equipment in all rooms and areas of the household as follows: A smoke alarm installed in each separate sleeping area (in the vicinity of, but outside of the bedrooms), and heat or smoke detectors in the living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, hallways, attics, furnace rooms, closets, utility and storage rooms, basements and attached garages”.
