Fire Drill using Nest

I want to manually turn on the Google Nest Fire Alarm and then off again to do a fire drill with my children but I can't locate how to do this on the iOS app? Is this possible?

The closet thing to that is a featured called Safety Checkup. Depending on where you start the test, either Nest Protect or the Nest app will give you a countdown so that you have time to move away before the test alarm begins. You can also cancel the test with the app or by pressing Protect's button. 

1. Sign into your account in the Nest app.

2. Select Nest Protect on the home screen.

3. Tap Checkup at the bottom of the screen.

Hi folks, 

 

Thanks for posting and apologies for the late reply. 

 

@davidking, appreciate the help! 

 

@mandaL2244, davidking is right! Try to run the Safety Checkup first and let me know how it goes.
