Nest, the creators of the world’s greatest Learning Thermostat, has unveiled it’s latest creation called Protect.

Safety shouldn’t be annoying. The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm quiets down when you wave – no more swinging towels or brooms – and messages your phone when its batteries run low. Nest Protect speaks with a human voice, telling you where and what the danger is, and gives you a friendly Heads-Up before turning on a loud alarm.

Watch the video above for an awesome demo. We’ll be partnering with Sarte Heating & Cooling in the next couple weeks to giveaway a Nest Learning Thermostat valued at $250. Our friends at Sarte will also install it free of charge as long as its compatible with your furnace.
