Features & Specs - nest Protect 05A
Power supply The power source of the model. Some have backup batteries (indicated by BB).
Peak memory Indicates whether a model shows peak levels that have occurred.
Had 4 of them. One kept saying it had a bad sensor. Reset it and it was ok for another month. Every month another one would spout off there is smoke when there wasn't any. You need an IOS or Android device to set them up and does not support Windows Phone. Luckily I am able to send them back and get a refund since the product had a recall because of the 'hand wave' to silence feature.
