This purchase requires you to ship me your Nest Protect Smoke Alarm Generation 2 and I will take it apart and remove the microphone from it. Note that this will void your warranty if it has one, and will cause it to always think the speaker has gone out if you do a test of the alarms. However you gain the peace of mind of knowing that Google, the current owner of Nest, cannot abuse that microphone once removed.
To have this fulfilled first create the purchase then we will send you an address to ship it to, you will have to pay the initial shipping then ship it to us and we will remove the microphone. Once that’s done we will reassemble your nest and send it back to you, return shipping is included in purchase price. The microphone can be included in the return if requested, if not we will discard it for you.
This service will usually take between 1-5 Business Days often closer to one unless we are backed up from the time it is received. We will provide a tracking number once it has been sent back.
You can test that we did in fact remove the microphone by testing your Nest Protect. It will give you an alert that the alarm cannot sound in whatever room you specified after it runs its test. This alert will never go away and it will inform you every time you try to test it. There is no way to disable that other then disabling the monthly test and not testing the microphone so it thinks its still good. Once the microphone is removed there is no way to undo that notice unfortunately.
If you require the microphone added back in we can do it for the same price of removal just repurchase this item, you will be required to include the removed microphone if you requested it on the return shipping. If you didn’t request it we will see if we have any left lying around. If we do we can do a microphone reinstall, if not we will cancel the order. Be sure to tell us you want the microphone reinstalled in the order comments.
