Intermittent beep ?


Community Member

The Nest Protect shouldn't beep intermittently.  It will chirp continuously once the battery is almost exhausted.

From the online support documentation as of this writing:

How to tell when Protect needs new batteries

When the batteries are getting low: 

  • The Nest app will notify you.
  • Protect’s light ring will pulse yellow when you turn off the lights at night. 
  • You’ll get a message during Nightly Promise.
  • When the batteries are very low, your Protect will chirp until the batteries are replaced.

You can also check the battery life of your Protect at any time.

Most likely it's a low battery issue. Assuming it's a battery only not hardwired protect.  I had the same thing happen when 1 of the 6 batteries went bad.  It skipped all the other warnings and went straight to the chirping.  

You can test the batteries with a battery tester or multi-meter, but for a safety device it's usually a good idea to just buy 6 new energizer lithium AA batteries and replace them all.
