The Lowes flyer shows $116, take that to HD to PM and you should get it for $104.
Nest products are excluded from the 10% discount so the flyer price of $116 maybe misprint.

Strobe is may be good for neighbors and people on street able to call firefighters before fire gets out of control. They all interconnected so nest wired is useless for replacing , I have installed nest battery as additional system without interfering wired interconnected system. Last two years a lot house fire incidents in GTA so better to have many than a few

Can confirm I have to have wired interconnected alarms in every bedroom, and also on every floor. And they need to have big ugly strobe lights for the deaf too even if no residents are deaf so nest doesn't actually technically meet code in Ontario...

Alarms in every bedroom seemed excessive to me but the strobe light thing is just stupid in a private SFH if nobody living there needs it IMO.

Nest Protect is awesome by the way.

I can’t justify throwing out $360 vs $70 when they’re garbage in 10 years if they even last that long

" According to building code, smoke alarms must be installed in each dwelling unit and in each sleeping area within a dwelling unit. Hallways connected to bedrooms must also have an alarm on or near the ceiling. In addition to these specific areas—each storey—including the basement must have an alarm installed".
You think that’s bad. Ontario also requires strobe lights now

The VAST MAJORITY of smoke/CO detectors sold in Ontario do not meet the ontario building code. When I was in the situation I could only find a single model with the stupid strobe that barely anybody sold and was even more expensive than nest protect without any smart features whatsoever.

It may be a bit better now, but I doubt it.

Half of the crap they sell at Home Depot does not meet code either
These do meet code as far as smoke detectors. you would need a strobe light as well.

There aren’t many smoke detectors that are all in one

Yeah it doesn't meet code.

But you can do what I did and install one in a central location as a stand-alone. These things are pretty sensitive and if you have an open concept house, it's going to pick up on smoke from anywhere.

I can confirm this as well as we recently finished our basement and our company does things by code. They told me the same thing about needing one in every single bedroom and in the hallways including the strobe thing which sucks if you don't need it. They installed a wired detector but told me that customers typically remove it and then install the Nest Protect afterwards.

Beware when you buy them, i bought nest protect from lowe’s before and those were 3-4 years old, they refuse for refund.
Most of them have only 10 years lifespan

When I purchased my protects in store, they tried pawing off 6 month old ones. I raised a stink and they opened up another crate for me. Always buy these in store and check the best before date before you pay.

PM'd at HD. Took 2 mins. Replacement date of May 2028. Not bad.
