Replacing a 1st Generation Nest Protect

Community Member

I have an old 1st gen wired Nest Protect I'm looking to replace with a 2nd gen.

I can't see an easy way to remove the old wires from the push-in connectors that were installed with the old 1st gen protect. Does anyone know how to remove the old push in connectors easily please?

I notice the new ones are definitely a bit more maintenance friendly and have push buttons to disconnect mains wiring from them.

Hey there,
Sorry for the late response, but I wanted to drop in here to help.

I understand that these issues can be confusing but I definitely wanted to stop by and see how I could help.

Just wanted to double check to see if you were still needing help on this? If so, what steps have you tried?

Please let me know.
