AVAD LLC now offers dealers access to the Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide from Nest Labs.
According to the company, Nest Protect eliminates the traditional chirping alarm and communicating intelligently.
According to a study by the National Fire Protection Agency, 73 percent of smoke alarms that failed to activate during home fires had dead, missing or disconnected batteries. Irritating and confusing beeps remain the chief cause of owners disabling their smoke alarms. The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm solves the issue with a voice that identifies where the specific problem is, and allows those nearby to acknowledge the alert with a simple wave of the hand, which prompts the device to quiet down. What’s more, it sends convenient messages to the owner’s phone if the batteries run low, eliminating distracting alerts.
“AVAD is proud to offer Nest products because they give serious thought to the design and improvement of once-forgotten pieces of technology that are now cornerstones of the connected home,” said Hugh Hughes, director of merchandising at AVAD. “Nest Labs earned the Consumer Electronics Association’s Best of Innovations Award in the Eco-Design and Sustainable Technology category for their excellent product development and engineering. The Nest Protect is a revolutionary step forward in home automation and monitoring.”
The Nest Protect monitors multiple criteria in any indoor setting with high quality heat, carbon monoxide and smoke sensors that work together to detect danger. The product’s multiple features and settings can be controlled and monitored directly from the Nest app on iOS, Android and on the web:
Nest Wave– Silence alerts with a wave of a hand.
Heads-Up– An alert will be sent before the piercing alarm goes off.
Receive mobile notifications- When Nest Protect is connected to Wi-Fi, your customer can receive low-battery alerts and alarm notifications on a smartphone or tablet.
Silence the chirp- Nest Protect shows you its batteries are good before you doze off.
Pathlight- No more stubbed toes. Nest Protect senses movement and lights the way at night.
Wireless Interconnect- Every Nest Protect in the home is connected wirelessly, so they’ll all speak up in an emergency to notify where the danger is.
Voice alarms for kids- Children can sleep through beeping alarms, so in addition to alarm sounds, Nest Protect speaks in a human voice to help kids wake up and avoid danger.
In addition, Nest is also available at Energy Squad ( www.energysquad.com).
