Nest Secure is Nest’s newest addition to their product offerings. The new product line is a smart alarm system designed to protect your home from intruders. It is a beautifully designed security system that adds to your home décor but does not take away from your esthetics. Learn more about the Nest Secure below.
The Nest Guard acts as the brain of the smart alarm system. It is a small hockey-puck shaped device that resembles an Amazon Echo but white and half the size. Unlike traditional alarm systems that attach to a wall, the Guard sits inside near your front door. It also has a keypad on top that can be used to arm and disarm the security system. The Guard, like other Nest products, is equipped with motion sensors, connects to Wi-Fi, and can be controlled via the Nest mobile app.
Included in the Nest Secure bundle are two Nest Tags. The Tag is a key fob with NFC capabilities. After coming back home, just tap the Guard with the Tag and you can disarm the system. Nest says the Tag is particularly ideal for family members, babysitters, and dog walkers. Regarding babysitters and dog walkers, the Tag can be programmed to allow temporary access to time of day and day of the week.
The Nest Detect is what you will use to secure doors and windows in your home. The Detect is battery powered and can last up to two years. You can separate the Detect into two pieces, one attaches to the door or window frame, the other to the door or window. If the magnetic field between the two pieces is disturbed (i.e., when the door or window opens) the alarm is engaged. There is a feature that allows you to press a button on the Detect to disarm the door it’s placed at called Quiet Open. This is ideal for anytime you want to leave the house without disarming the whole system.
