nest already has stated that it will improve auto away function
however the heat sensor will do nothing at launch

it would be nice for nest to use the heat sensor
in away that if you are in room b with a "protect"
and no one is in room a with nest tstat

the measured temperature should come from the active room
in this case the "protect"

I'm curious if these devices are disposable after x (say 10) number of years or were they designed for increased longevity.. I couldn't find any material indicating one way or the other.

It sure would be nice if the CO sensor could be replaced every 7 years... I think I saw Nest publish that 7 years is the expected lifespan of at least the CO sensor.
UI7 / VeraPlus.... YAY, more stable than ever!

Yes, highly doubtful given the statement below. I see that people are rallying (Nest community) for replaceable sensors or an option to provide a trade-in program...

"About two weeks before it expires, Nest Protect will light up with a yellow light. Wave at Nest Protect and it will say, ?Nest Protect has expired. Replace it now.? Buy a new alarm and recycle the expired one. Make sure you test your new Nest Protect once it?s installed."

Re: Nest Opens API for Thermostat -- and hopefully the new Nest Protect!

I expect and hope that the official Nest API will support this neat new device, the Nest Protect:

I will integrate this device into the Nest plugin if it's at all possible.

Seeing how their whole API is structured around the building (high-level "structure" object, "devices" belong to "structures", etc), I certainly hope they'd be part of the same data structure! The API is pretty comprehensive right now, I think it's extremely likely they're going to stick to it for both devices.
