My old Nest Protect Smoke detector has been replaced with a new one. How do I remove the old one from the Nest App.

Hi Arthur, 
You can remove an old Protect from the Nest app by following the instructions below:
  1. From the main app homepage, tap the settings cog in the top right
  2. Select Protect from the list of options you are presented with
  3. Select the Protect you wish to remove from the list
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the option to "Remove Nest Protect"
Hopefully this helps but if you need any more assistance, let me know.
