  • Nest Protect

    The nest protect (the smoke/carbon alarm) is a really good product. Now that they've added the thermostat support, any news on adding the nest protect to the Insteon hub?

    I would love to see the Nest Protect supported by Insteon.

      Ditto here. I have two installed.

        Now it is 2017. There is integration with the Nest thermostat, the thermostat and protects talk to each other too. Why not integrate with a smoke bridge or equivalent module to turn on lights when an alarm goes off? This would be so useful!

          I believe that the Smoke Bridge can do that. Create a scene with the bridge as a controller.

            That only appears to be true if you have first alert detectors. All lights on in the event of a fire would be incredibly beneficial should a night time evacuation be necessary. I don't see how Insteon is dropping the ball on this.

              Does anyone from Insteon even read these forums?

                This is a user-to-user forum although a SH person may drop in from time to time.

                  I figured. It has been unusually quiet in this thread considering how beneficial to safety this could be.

                    That requires that Google (or any third party device manufacturer) release their API to Insteon Labs. I don't know that they did, I don't know that they didn't. It's also a matter of what's involved in making changes to the Hub app. If you've ever coded, then you know that making changes is not always trivial.

                    You may want to use whatever Hub app you're using to notify Insteon Labs of your request. Setting, About, Feedback.

                      I have several of Nest Protects in my house. My entire house is also Insteon (all switches, ceiling fans, and some lamp modules). This would be a great combination.

                      However, I'm getting a queasy feeling that Insteon starting to languish while everything else is taking off like wildfire. Or maybe its because I'm watching all this cool stuff around me and I can't integrate with 'em (Android app (still) clunky, IFTTT integration, for example)...

                        Although the Hub (if you're using one) does not accept IFTTT recipes, the Hub is compatible with Stringify which provides a similar function.
