I have a large open plan kitchen dining and living area with a high vaulted ceiling. The ceiling meets two separate one-sided peaks in two places on the wall.

I'd like to put a single Google Nest Protect in the room. Where should it go? The instructions say 90 cm vertical from the peak but doesn't say whether it's ok to place it under a second lower peak.

  • I would place it in accordance with suggestions on placing smoke detectors in general - it doesn't matter what brand it is. You need it near the peak because that's where the smoke will accumulate first. – FreeMan Jan 14 at 14:46

After consultation with Google customer service, they recommended that the alarm go at the top peak. They did not provide the rationale.
