The way to differentiate the first and the second generation of Nest Protect is by verifying if it has a battery door the Nest Protect 1 does not have one, verify the back plate the second generation has a round backplate, while the first has a square plate and the easiest one is to look at the edges of the device the second generation has rounded corners all around the case, while the first gen has straight edges. Right now, on the market, there are three types of smoke detectors: those that use ionization sensors, those that use photoelectric sensors and lastly, those that use both type of sensors also called dual sensor smoke alarms. The Nest Protect, theoretically, falls into the last category, but things are a bit more complicated because it doesn’t have a ionization sensor, but it does use the Split Spectrum Sensor which nullifies the need of the radioactive ionization sensor as you know, it detects smoke produced by flaming fires which burn at a fast rate so, if the ionized air is disrupted by smoke, it triggers the alarm. The photoelectric sensors is used to detect any smouldering fires that uses a light beam which, normally does not hit the sensor, but when smoke scatters the light particles, it will hit the sensor, therefore triggering the alarms – this method is used to detect a fire in its early stages, therefore reacting a lot faster. Now, the Split Spectrum Sensor should detect both the flaming fires and the smouldering ones, by adding a blue LED light at a wavelength of 450nm to look for small particles which are an indicator of a rapid, fast burning fire and keeping the usual photoelectric sensor to detect smouldering fires. To make sure it doesn’t repeat the mistakes of its predecessor annoying false alarms, the new sensor is isolated from any outside light and the encasing is designed to only allow smoke in and nothing else this worked just fine since the second generation of Nest Protect is indeed less prone to false alarms. Besides the Split Spectrum sensor, there’s also an Electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor yes, the Nest Protect is also a Carbon Monoxide Detector which detects the CO concentration level inside the room and, if it’s beyond safe levels, it triggers the alarm CO detectors usually last about 6 7 years, but Nest advertises that the sensor on the Protect can last up to 10 years. Furthermore, there’s also a heat sensor so you’ll get notified when the home gets either too cold or too hot, a humidity sensor so it makes it unlikely that the alarm will be triggered when there’s lots of steam, an ambient light sensor so the detector knows when the lights are shut off and it can activate the Pathlight feature or the Nightly Promise – the LED will be green if everything is fine, otherwise, it will become yellow and an occupancy sensor it is used with the Pathlight feature, so it will detect movement and will shine a light on your path during the night – so you don’t stumble on the furniture. With the new released WiFi systems and home automation hubs, I noticed an increased interest towards simplicity and minimalism in both design and functionality, which meant a simple design and a single LED which showed the status of the system with different colours. Of course, for me it did not make much sense since there is no intuitive way to understand all those flashing or solid colours, so I said that a voice feedback would make much more sense. It seems that Nest Protect actually implemented such a system and, using an omnidirectional microphone, it will speak to you in words besides also using the appropriate colours: there are two types of alerts, the Heads up it’s a calmly spoken warning + yellow LED, when smoke or CO levels are rising but have not yet reached dangerous levels and the Emergency Alerts when smoke or CO are at dangerous levels, the Nest Protect notifies you where is the problem, it turns the LED red and triggers the loud sound alarm – 85dB.

Here are two recommended wireless security cameras for you: /product/rlc 411ws/, /product/rlc 410ws/. Or you may choose the wireless surveillance camera systems. They can offer the most comprehensive protection for your home and work best with internet access. Even without network, they can still do 24/7 surveillance and video recording. But note that you cannot get remote viewing or monition detection alerts without Internet. /product/rlk4 210wb4/Anything lower than these numbers may leave you squinting and trying hard to recognize what you’re viewing from the monitor.

Ring Pro is very easy to install, though a little more complicated than Ring Video Doorbell 2. It's the only Ring doorbell we tested with people detection features and fully customizable motion detection zones. It also has the best video quality of the smart doorbells we tested, though it's not so much better than the competition that it's worth the higher price.
