Apart from some batteries, they iFixit guys also found a number of sensors inside the Nest Protect, which includes an ambient light sensor, heat and humidity sensors, three activity sensors, and a photoelectric smoke sensor plus a carbon monoxide sensor.
This is one device that the iFixit team have decided not to add to their repairability score, as this is not the type of device you should try and repair yourself, as it is designed for safety and to protect people from fires.
