Now, let’s talk about the elephant in the room or the Nest!: the security and privacy of your data. As you know, Nest is owned by Google, so this already makes people more cautious about their privacy. There has been a reported backdoor more than a couple of years ago on the Nest thermostat, but the Nest Protect was and remains unaffected by the IoT vulnerabilities and there are many. Now, Nest admits on collecting data from your system to analyse the average battery life, it records data about any adjustments you make to the product and the history of all changes, but it insists that all collected data is not sold to third party companies and the info may be shared but not before the user gives explicit permission to do so. The First Alert Onelink Safe and Sound is the newest smoke and Carbon Monoxide detector from the US based manufacturer and it is the second attempt at creating a worthy competitor to the widely popular Nest Protect 2nd Generation. I purposely skipped the first generation of OneLink because it was a mess software wise the app was unstable and the device would constantly trigger false alarms, so the company has worked hard to fix these issues and hoped that this new device would receive more positive feedback from the audience.

In contrast, wireless security uses equipment that’s either freestanding or affixed to walls and entryways with removable adhesive. Wireless control panels, sensors and other components can easily be set up at different properties later on, and wireless systems are easily expanded with new components too. Wireless security plans also allow remote control of the system and general home automation. If home automation is your main appeal, check out our list of top systems with home automation features. When homeowners choose between wireless and hardwired home security, wireless is generally their top option. Several reasons are that wireless security is no longer expensive, it keeps walls clean, it’s low maintenance, and it can easily be reconfigured if needs should change. For example, you can easily add a video camera to a newborn’s room or rearrange motion sensors after home renovations. Another benefit is optional wireless environmental protection, which includes detectors for smoke, heat, carbon monoxide and/or moisture. Choosing wireless security also makes it easy to automate your home. Examples of home automation are controlling your lights, thermostat and door locks from your mobile phone. Home automation is convenient and easy, and wireless systems help you automate your home that much easier.
