This is amazing.

Retraction

Turns out we had one legacy smoke detector from the previous residents in our house, and its batteries are dying. I didn't expect it to talk, so I assumed it was the +Nest Protect. Also, it is amazing how difficult it is to locate which smoke detector is beeping.

So, +Nest Protect is still working as expected. Sorry for the false alarm.

+Nest​ fail. My wired smoke detectors are having issues with connectivity, so they've been using battery backup. Now the batteries are low, and in spite of the promises on the website, I'm being awakened by chirps all night instead of being notified in the app (which thinks my batteries are fine). Can't recommend these things if they can't do what they say.
