alarm system home security

Similarly to the Nest Protect 2nd Generation, the Safe and Sound also has a NightLight which can be adjusted in terms of intensity or colour depending on the time of day, but it cannot be set to turn on only during the night while Nest does allow it.

It has outstanding detection capabilities and innovative alerts that let you know exactly what threat your home is facing and how to proceed. It’s intuitive to install and its high compatibility with third party products is a huge selling point as well. The only gripe we have is the relatively short warranty. The smoke sensor in the Nest Protect is different than any other smoke alarm we've looked at. The unit uses a split spectrum sensor, a special type of photoelectric sensor, which is designed to detect both smoky and flaming fires. The Nest Protect also has a built in a carbon monoxide sensor and will sound an alarm if it detects dangerous levels of the invisible, odorless gas which can be lethal if you breathe it for too long. To help cut down on false alarms from steam and burnt toast, the Nest Protect also uses humidity and heat sensors. We tested the detection capabilities of each smoke detector in our comparison by spraying test smoke from an aerosol can directly at each one from 5, 10 and 15 feet away. When we tested the 5 and 10 foot mark, the Nest Protect sounded its alarm after 18 seconds. At 15 feet, the alarm activated at 28 seconds. It should be noted that Nest Protect was the only smoke detector that passed all of our detection tests.

The ionized and photo electric smoke detectors provide an early warning for any potential fires. This technology also reduces false alarms by sensing real danger. Not all fires are alike. Some fires, like kitchen fires create fast flames and are detected best by the ionization technology. Other fires like cigarettes can smolder in a couch for several hours before erupting into flames. In these cases, residents can die from smoke inhalation before flames ever break out.
