Smoke alarms >
Protecting you and your loved ones is easier than ever, thanks to a growing a range of smart smoke alarms that can tell you what’s going on at home even when you’re not there. Nest Protect (£90, apple.co/ 1LBnk1P), for example, can detect both fast and slow burning fires using two different wavelengths of light to detect smoke during the device’s 10-year lifespan. It immediately alerts you via its companion iOS app in the event of a problem. Its Pathlight feature lights your way as you pass by – handy if you need to get up to go to the loo during the night.
Nest Protect provides an early warning about smoke in a friendly voice, rather than a shrill initial tone.
