Does anyone know if the Nest smoke detectors will work with professional alarm systems, specifically the Concord4?

We have a client that likes them and wants to use them.

Thanks.

Good idea. Add another piece to the ceiling

When it's another thing on the wall next to the light switch, it's called wall acne. Ceiling acne?

It's pretty easy to hide a fire fighter somewhere in a house. With all of the smokes required by code, there's usually a spot where one additional thing on a ceiling is pretty benign.

We've never used one with nest, but we have used them with other hardwired and interconnected smokes... They've worked quite well.

My handle is Tweety but I have nothing to do with the organization of similar name. I just had a really big head as a child so folks called me tweety bird.

I guess if you can do it with one, that would work. But Nest aren’t hardwired together. Seems risky to rely on their wireless connectivity to work in an emergency.

The words "Nest" and "Professional Alarm System" should not be used together.

If you are installing and monitoring alarms I would really think hard about not doing this. Is this a new build? Hardwire smoke and carbons and dont play with the toys.
