The people behind the Nest, a thermostat that learns your behaviour to figure out what your preferred settings are, is introducing Nest Protect, a wireless smoke and carbon monoxide alarm that talks. The device can work in conjunction with the thermostat.
In addition to an alarm sound, Nest Protect speaks to you with a human voice. It tells you what the problem is and where it is. And if you have more than one Nest Protect, they connect so they can speak up at the same time even if Wi-Fi is down.
Voice alarms can be important to your family?s safety. You have more information when seconds count. And according to a study, children can sleep through a beeping alarm. So Nest Protect sounds the alarm and uses a human voice to help kids wake up.
