Nest Protect in Kitchen and Smoke Alarm keeps going off

Community Member

Since installing 7 NEST Protect Gen2 in our house, they have been working fine with the exception of the kitchen. It goes off at the tiniest amount of smoke even though it is on the ceiling (3 mtr up) and the extraction fan is on. We dont even neet a smoke alarm, just HEAT and CO2 in the kitchen.

Are there any plans to disable the smoke alarm through the app or adjust the sensitivity? Maybe tagging false alarms so the system starts to recognise what is 'normal'.




We don't have our conventional carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in the kitchen, to avoid false alarms. The smoke detector in the living room will go off if we burn something in the kitchen.
