You silently marvel at how simple life has become as you sit back to enjoy the game. Smart homes had their origins, as most innovations, in theory long before they become a reality. While science fiction writers, such as Ray Bradbury, depicted these homes throughout much of the 20th century, their genesis lies in the development of the systems that comprise them. The first 20 years of the 20th century saw the invention of the vacuum cleaner, dryer, washing machine, iron, and toaster. The first smart device was created approximately 45 years later. Known as the ECHO IV, it could turn home appliances on and off and control home temperatures; unfortunately, it did not sell well.

It has outstanding detection capabilities and innovative alerts that let you know exactly what threat your home is facing and how to proceed. It’s intuitive to install and its high compatibility with third party products is a huge selling point as well. The only gripe we have is the relatively short warranty. The smoke sensor in the Nest Protect is different than any other smoke alarm we've looked at. The unit uses a split spectrum sensor, a special type of photoelectric sensor, which is designed to detect both smoky and flaming fires. The Nest Protect also has a built in a carbon monoxide sensor and will sound an alarm if it detects dangerous levels of the invisible, odorless gas which can be lethal if you breathe it for too long. To help cut down on false alarms from steam and burnt toast, the Nest Protect also uses humidity and heat sensors. We tested the detection capabilities of each smoke detector in our comparison by spraying test smoke from an aerosol can directly at each one from 5, 10 and 15 feet away.
