Got this at Costco yesterday. I got the battery powered ones. Seems like a good deal and couldn't find anything searching here.

Good deal, but already been posted. If you had searched "Nest Protect" and sort by "newest":

*Yawn* Just another landing surface into the home network by evildoers/war drivers, or law enforcement. And of course, Google is collecting that much more data on you with these IoT devices. In case you forgot, Google bought Nest for $3.2B in 2014. $3.2B! Ya think they spent $3.2B just to let you stay on the couch when you turn on your AC? Not in my house. No Alexa. No network home "security" systems. No video doorbells. People, think about what you're giving up before you put your refrigerator on the net. And before the tin foil hat people come out of the wall, I have lived and worked in Silicon Valley for all of my adult life. Security and compliance is what I do. Don't be duped. The price of these things is more than what you pay for them in dollars. If you MUST have IoT devices at least learn some basic network subnetting and put a firewall between your "home" subnet and your "IoT" subnet.

You can use something like this to define and isolate your subnets: https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-E...edgerouter

What I mean is you are paying by exposing your personal metadata potentially to anyone who wants it and absolutely to Google who, as it turns out, is not exactly the epitome of "Do no evil" they professed (past tense--they don't anymore) themselves to be.

I post this information to raise awareness for people who may not know the implications of placing IoT devices on their network. Clearly you know better so the post does not apply to you.

Just out of curiosity, do you own a smart phone? Those collect just as much data, if not more, than IoT devices.
