PROTECT AND CONNECT WITH MORE GEAR
Some smart home recipes that work with Nest
If your Protect detects a carbon monoxide build-up, it can tell your Belkin WeMo switches to turn your appliances off, in case they’re the cause. That’s especially handy if your WeMo is connected to an electirc heater, but it could also be useful to turn off your stereo to alert you to a problem.
When the Protect detects a smoke emergency, your Philips Hue or LIFX lights will flash red to help warn you, then stay red, which helps cut through the smoke. They’ll do this even when turned off in the middle of the night, so you easily see your escape route.
If you have a Nest Cam as well as a Protect, your camera will kick into life when smoke is detected, sending you a video clip along with the smoke notification. So if you’re away from home, you can see that it’s just the kids burning the toast instead of having to call 000.
