Magnetic mount for Nest Protect?

Community Member

I am seriously considering buying a Nest Protect for my house, but I cannot use screws in my ceiling. At the moment, I have some other, cheap, smoke and co-detectors that I mounted with magnets (one with double sided tape to attach to the ceiling), which works like a charm. Would the NP be too heavy for that, is it designed to have  a magnet mount it? I'm considering this 3M version:

Hi @Mailwoman 

Not sure what is the maximum allowed weight for the magnets but I know the devices itself are not that exceptional heavy. So I think you would be fine.


If you check THIS link you what the weight is.

Thank you very much, @RXShorty 
I guess I am just going to give it a try then 🙂
