Nest Protect not working with Sense

I have a few Nest Protect smoke alarms in my house. 

Now with the Sense I need to create a new wifi and therefore the Nests need to be set up again. 

The first one is fine. Works. 

When you set up a second Nest in your home, it will attempt to copy the settings from the first. 

This fails when on the Sense wifi - even if I disable all protections in the Sense iOS app. 


So I can only have one Nest Protect connected which is obviously not ideal. Especially since Sense was meant to work specifically with iot - and Nest must be some of the most prominent iot devices out there. 


Any my ideas on how to get this to work?

    strange, it worked with my two nests...


    btw, the setup-process for the second protect is really nice Smiley Very Happy
