The Nest Protect is the newest product in Nest’s line of smart home devices.  The Protect is a smoke and carbon monoxide detector that takes the annoying factor out of the smoke detector equation.  Before an emergency, the Protect gives you a heads up warning using a human voice, not an obnoxious beep.  If you’ve simply burned your bacon, you can just wave your hand under the Protect to hush it.
