Which rooms in my home need a Nest Protect?
It is recommended that you place a Nest Protect inside and outside any sleeping area, on every floor, and at the top of stairways.
- Inside and outside every sleeping area
- If you close your bedroom door before you go to sleep, make sure you install a smoke alarm inside your bedroom and in the hallway. Closed or metal doors can also block smoke from reaching a smoke alarm.The Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests that each home should have a carbon monoxide alarm near each bedroom as well as every separate sleeping area. Most local state codes now require at least one carbon monoxide alarm for residential homes.
- On every floor, including finished attics and basements
- Most state residential building codes require a smoke alarm on every level for your own protection. In homes with more than 1,000 sq. feet on one level, additional alarms may be required.
- At the top of a first-to-second floor stairway
- In multi-story homes, a fire on one level can grow to dangerous levels before smoke has the chance to rise in a stairway.
- On a basement ceiling near the stair entry
There may also be local regulations that you need to follow, so make sure to check the building code.
