I have to admit, these smoke detectors by Nest are pretty. Simple, modern and functional, I think they would even blend in with my Victorian. And given the current state of my stove, I need a smoke detector. Especially one that I can wave off if it’s just burnt toast (again) instead of a wall on fire.
They’re available in black as well, but these smoke detectors are quite pricey at $130. You may find it worth the price though, as the detector not only shuts off quickly, but also talks to you when there are problems and connects with your phone.
The Nest smoke detector can even, if you’ve already sprung for the even pricier Nest thermostat, talk to your thermostat, letting it know to shut off the furnace if they detect carbon monoxide. A story I might, as the owner of an older home, find even more compelling than the design. Function and form? Nice.
