I can understand the smart thermostat, and am looking at replacing my current programmable with a Nest; but this just looks like another geek-device for the sake of having a geek-device.
Fwiw: they have answered questions you asked via the FAQ on the website:

What is Nest Protect for Security Systems?
Nest Protect for Security Systems is a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm designed to connect to your home security system.

This Nest Protect model is similar to the Nest Protect (Battery), but engineered to connect with existing security system control panels.
