Easy ways to arm and disarm.
You can arm and disarm with the Nest app from anywhere.¹ Tap Nest Tag on Nest Guard as you come and go. Or just ask your Google Assistant to arm for you. You can also enter a passcode on Nest Guard’s keypad. (But only if you like passcodes.)
No stressful countdowns, loud beeps, or rushing out the door.
You can choose how much time you need to arm or disarm before the alarm goes off – up to 5 minutes. For doors you use most, you might give yourself more time. For doors you hardly use, you can set No Delay so the alarm goes off instantly when it opens. And if you forget to arm, you’ll get a Remind Me alert on your phone.
One sensor can sense two things.
Stick Nest Detect on a window, and you’ll know when it opens. Stick it on a wall, and it senses motion in a room. And when you stick it on a door, it can sense both motion and open/close. You can turn motion detection on and off in the Nest app.
And it can do more than sense.
Nest Detect looks out for your family, whether you’re home or away. When your kids run out the door to the backyard, you’ll hear an open tone. When you need to leave early and the house is armed, Quiet Open keeps the alarm silent while you open the door. Pathlight helps you find your way in the dark. And Dog Pass keeps your small pooch from setting off the alarm.
Always know what’s happening at home.
If the alarm goes off, you’ll get a security alert on your phone.¹ Check the free Nest app to see what triggered the alarm – either a door or window opened or someone entered a room. Then you can call the police or your emergency contacts.
The Nest Secure starter pack includes one Guard, two Detects, and two Tags. Google Nest Connect is an optional add-on for your Nest Secure alarm system if you need to extend the range between your Detects and Guard for better communication. It’s sold separately.
