Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly
look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices
designed to help people who have difficulties with vision,
mobility, hearing or other special needs!
It seems as if all devices can be connected to one's
smartphone nowadays--from thermostats, lights, door locks
and even a smoke detector. The all-new Nest Protect 2.0
is a smart solution to keep you and your family safe from fires and
carbon monoxide poisoning.
The new Nest Protect offers many smart features:
- It will alert you via your phone and by speaking aloud in
case of emergency
- It will tell you exactly where smoke is (For example, "There is
smoke in the kitchen.")
- It quietly tests its batteries and sensors over 400 times
- It automatically tests its horn and speaker once a month so you
don't have to
