What kind of beep is it? Check the "when Protect needs your attention" section of this article:
Are you using the required Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA (L91) batteries?
Hello, I’ve changed the batteries to the recommended ones and it’s still chirping once every 60 or so seconds. It doesn’t say it needs to be replaced until 2030. What could be the issue? Is there a help desk that can be called? This is very frustrating
I’m sorry to hear you’re having Nest Protect battery issue. Let's sort this out.
Since you've already replaced the batteries of your Nest Protect with the recommended ones, can you check for its battery level on the app?
I'll look forward to your response.
I appreciate your help, @SGoodhue.
I DO use the batteries you mentioned~ but it beeps, as I said - after a short time - I test the batteries - they are fully charged; I put them back in and then it works again!!! The batteries are fine - but I hate to keep taking them out/putting them back in!!!
One of my nest thermostats beeps with good batteries..after 2 weeks or so; I have to take out the batteries (they are fine) and when I put them in again, it’s ready to go!!! Why does it beep unexpectedly when the batteries are still good?
The problem seems to be that the Nest is designed to ONLY use the expensive lithium batteries. All other types wear out quickly. If you look on the back of the product they say in very small print that the lithium ones are required. I think Google/Nest cut some kind of back room deal with Energizer to force us to buy their expensive batteries. The lithium ones are supposed to be very long lasting if that is any consolation. We changed to Lithium and no problems since.
