Nest Protect is a $129 Smoke Detector with Brain and Voice

In the beginning there was Nest’s Learning Thermostat. Now, it has come up with the Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector. What the first one did for home temperature, the latter does for fire hazards. What Nest does for these otherwise ordinary gadgets is make them sexy. Style and image get built into the design process. It can be hooked up with your smart phone too. 

Tony Fadell, co-founder and CEO of Nest, said that he got the idea in the form of an epiphany one day. He was staring at the fire alarm on his ceiling and thought of ways to jazz it up. He decided to convert the nuisance into a smart and efficient device

The deep thought that went into creating the Nest Protect came courtesy of a decade-long stint that the founder spent with Steve Jobs. He learnt the basics there. He then went about changing what was a boring necessity into an interesting luxury. The voice on the gizmo comes in three languages: English, Spanish and French. 

The voice lets you know if the battery is low or if there is too much carbon monoxide in the air. The Nest Protect corrects some of the mistakes in modern smoke detectors. You can turn off the alarm signal by waving your hands before the screen. And finally, it gives off a warm glow when you pass by it at night. It is available in white and black hues for $129. This is a good buy indeed.
