Could any of these be used without a home hub? My parents are looking to add only a smart smoke detector, so I am hoping to find a solution that does not require a hub, and instead connects directly to Wi-Fi with an app for remote monitoring/management (functioning similar to how many smart thermostats don’t require a hub, such as nest or ecobee).

Actually, none of these require a hub - they all connect directly to Wi-Fi.

The Nest Protect doesn't work with Alexa. Alexa/Echo has only skills for the Thermostat and Camera products from Nest. I've just checked with Nest Support.

Good catch. When Google decided to move people away from Nest to Google Assistant accounts, almost all of this functionality was lost. We've updated the story.
