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.
