The backplate doesn't work on my wired boxes.

Community Member

I have four google nest smoke detectors to replace my expiring wired detectors.  I got the battery version because Google, in its infinite wisdom, decided to use a different wiring than any other detector.  I start to install these and discover that Google, in its infinite wisdom, uses a different backplate for battery vs. wired.  Which makes no sense.  How can I get the correct backplate for a wired box. From previous postings, it appears that the detector itself fits on either plate. Thanks.
