Smoke detectors aren’t just convenient; they’re also required by law. They can even be pretty high-tech. If the smoke detector is tied into a security system with monitoring, you can get a super-speedy response from police and fire departments. The newly released Nest Protect doesn’t work with larger security systems, but it does work with the Nest thermostat and a variety of web-enabled devices. The combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm also has audible alerts, the option to silence the alarm with the wave of a hand, and a Pathlight feature for lighting your way in the middle of the night.
