I have been watching these for a while. Lowest i've seen has been $140, but price dropper shows that this is the lowest they have been $120 each.. I would probably go for it but I only need a single one.

Edit* not sure why my price dropper link isnt working

Lowest I've seen was actually around $85 at Lowe's (think around 2 years ago). This was sale price + coupon on top.

That's a steal. I wonder if Lowe's puts them on sale often or if it was a one off... Might not hurt to wait until BF to see what happens then.

It's also too bad you can't "mix & match"... (one hard wired and one battery).

Waiting I think is best... unless you're in dire need of one. ;)

I might be wrong but I don't think HD PMs Costco

I thought this was the case too. HD does have a promo right now for 2 Protects with $40 off. So, $260 before taxes, if you pay with 10% off gift cards, you get a savings of $5 versus this Costco one. But, I'd probably go with Costco since their return policy is better and no fear of gift cards.

Just as an FYI, I'm pretty sure these are not up to code in Ontario. If you aren't doing a renovation that requires a permit you'd be OK to replace old ones but if you need a permit these won't pass the test. I think they're missing the necessary strobe functionality.

Someone feel free to correct me though.

http://forums.redflagdeals.com/shell-sa ... #p31477430 here are the details. It's really any gift cards. But I recently bought a bunch of HD for my renovations.

This is also my understanding. See here, and specifically this part:
According to the Ontario Building Code, a visual signalling component must conform to the requirements in the National Fire Alarm & Signalling Code. The luminous intensity for visual signalling components required are to be installed anywhere a smoke alarm is required, with a minimum of 175 cd.

Im not exactly sure how it works but my house is a new build and i have the strobe light installed beisde the builder detector. I dont think the strobe is wired into the detector and its my understanding that it may trigger based on sound. If the alarm triggers, the sound will trigger the strobe? I could be mistaken on this.

If i am not mistaken, you could just install a strobe beside this to pass inspection. It wouldnt have to be an all in one detector/strobe solution

The other option would be to just install alongside your current strobe detector. The advantage of the Nest Protect is the monitoring, so you'll know if your smoke alarm is going off. I'm thinking of doing the same so I don't need a monitored smoke detector through the alarm company (I have a dog and want to make sure he isn't on fire Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes).
