Nest CEO announced the halt of sales of the Nest Protect Smoke/CO Alarm, as the 'Wave' features is enabled by default, while recommending all customers turn off the 'Wave' feature, which allows a customer to disable the alarm by waving your hand.
Nest is working on bringing back this feature, but more testing and new approval from several agencies is required, which can take several months.
If your unit is connected to your network, it will supposedly turn the Wave feature off within 24 hours.  See below for the full press release which includes steps to help you disable this feature.
