Smart carbon monoxide and smoke sensor Nest Protect can be a lifesaver, but indifference to regular elderly ‘dumb’ smoke alarms, it desires to be related to Wi-Fi to play to its courage.
The device used to plummet shortly in this regard when you needed to change your network’s SSID or password: You would have to remove and re-add it to your Nest account’s composition.
Well, no more – an update to the Nest application lets you adjust Wi-Fi settings on your 2nd generation Nest Protect right from the application.
Once you possess the new version, you can alter your Wi-Fi credentials by bossing to Settings > Home > Home Wi-Fi help.
Here, you select the device you want to update and then dab Start. Easy enough, yet a very pleasant improvement. We have not received the update over at APK Mirror just yet, but you can test back later to see
How to we manually test the Nest Protect’s Wi-Fi
Your Nest Protect does not maintain a constant Wi-Fi connection. After each step, you’ll need to manually test your Nest Protect’s Wi-Fi connection.
Press the Nest button on Protect and release. If it is disconnected, it might say that the “Nest Protect is disconnected from the internet.”
Press and hold the button until you hear your Nest Protect says Checking the network. Then release the button.
Your Nest Protect will glow blue in color while it tests its network connection. It will finish after a few moments.

Your Nest Protect will glow green if it was able to connect, or yellow if there’s still an issue.
Continue to the next step if your Nest Protect was unable to reconnect or you still see it offline in the Nest app.
Note: A battery-powered Nest Protect will normally test its Wi-Fi connection once per day. A wired Nest Protect will normally test its Wi-Fi connection every 30 minutes, as long as the power is on.
Use the steps above to manually have your Nest Protect test the network connection before it’s scheduled time.
