Smoke detector status is always online


i’ve added 3 smoke-CO detectors to system and trying to use cloud API to retrieve data and use it in separate app. I can see also all detectors in NEST dashboard.
If i switch off the detectors by removing batteries from them then I can’t see any status updates. Neither in API responses, nor in NEST dashboard. Nothing changes. All detectors still have “is_online” as “ok”.
is it a known issue? How is it possible to debug it?


This is most likely due to the fact that the Protect isn’t always connected to the service, only when there’s an alarming event or when it does a generic check-in every few hours. If you leave them off for a long while it should eventually switch to offline in the API.

Not sure what you mean by Nest dashboard (the website?).
