As I’ve stated before, I love smart home products. I’m not entirely sure if it’s laziness or the cool factor, but I love having the ability to control things from my smartphone. Nest recently announced a redesign of its Nest Protect fire alarm. I have the original Nest Protect at home and was excited to hear about its redesign (as excited as one can get over a fire alarm).
The second generation Nest Protect claims to be 11 percent smaller, longer lasting, and easier to install. Nest also states the Nest Protect uses a new sensor that will be able to differentiate between different types of fires. Finally, the LED ring now shines brighter and alarms can be cleared from your smartphone.
