So I purchased a Nest Protect yesterday, and I like the idea of being able to see alerts when away from home, and the clear voice is nice; however, I have some buyers remorse. The motion sensing doesn’t appear to work, so the path light feature is not working. It also really doesn’t detect what I need it to, that being natural gas. I should have figured this out before I purchased it, but I was unaware that CO2 detectors for the most part do not detect natural gas. We had a scare the other night and came home to an apartment filled with gas from the stove that was left on unlit. It was a very scary situation to say the least, so I rushed out and got the Nest Protect. Any input from home owners with natural gas would be much appreciated. It would be nice to monitor this when away from home.
I saw this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/28240313/kepler-your-best-home-gas-detector, but I’m unsure when it comes out or if it will work with Smart Things. I’d like to have something now.
