    I had the Nest alarm for a couple of weeks. I purchased one of these sensors for every entry to my home including all windows and doors. That was expensive, really expensive. I didn't find the operation of the sensors to justify the expense when compared to what other alarm systems can do for less money. I installed all of the sensors and verified their functionality. I am quite good with technology and fully research how things work before evaluating them. I say this because one of my sensors kept indicating it was off line. This means it would not sense if the window were open or closed. The app doesn't alert you when the sensor is off line, it just doesn't work. You have to open the app, go to each sensor, then review the history of the sensor to see if it went off line. That didn't instill much confidence in the sensor's reliability. I uninstalled the sensor through the app then paired it with the alarm again. Same issue occurred. The issue was with the sensor itself as this sensor was within 25 feet of the base station so proximity wasn't an issue. Given the function of the sensor and the price I don't feel like anyone should have to worry about it going off line so often. The sensors pack a lot of function which is why they cost so much. The quiet open button is awesome, press it and you can open the door or window its on without setting the alarm off. Close it back and the sensor arms again. Each sensor also acts as a motion sensor which adds some convenience. You can install the sensor on a door and you can program it to sense motion and if the door is opened. This saves a bit as you don't need a motion sensor near the doors. Of course you can disable this if you want and it is automatically disabled for windows. Programming the sensors to the alarm is the easiest thing I've ever done with an electronic. You literally open the app, scan the sensor QR code and tell the app where your installing the sensor. It then guides you on how to install it and tests the function when your done. The included mounting hardware can be used with screws (provided) or sticky tape (provided). The sticky tape is strong, no fear of sensors falling off at any point. Given that these go so many other places it doesn't make financial sense to invest in the nest system for a larger home as your windows will end up with expensive sensors that don't use the extra functions. Hopefully Nest releases some cheaper sensors at some point.

    Look, if you have a Nest security system, you need some of these. Possibly a bunch of them. They work as advertised, but it’s not like you have a choice.

    Overpriced that's all there is to say. I have to keep typing so I get the required number of characters.

    Every house should have window and door senors that are connected to a loud siren, because the crooks are going to enter in a window or door that is in the rear of a home out of sight.

    Solid product but very visible, placement also requires it to be pretty much at eye level to function properly

    These detects works great! The motion sensor works extremely well. The doorbell chime works every time and on a window as well. They are a little expensive if you have a lot of windows and doors though. And they don’t have glass break capabilities.

    Added this product to compliment two others previously installed. Really like knowing that if a criminal comes through that door I’ll have time to load up.

    At around $50 each, this can add up to be quite a lot if you have a big house.

    They work great. Not giving 5 stars only because I really wish they had window breaking detection and that they were a tad smaller.

    By far these are the best door/window sensors on the market. Can also be used as a motion detector.

    Have used various brands in several different homes. The integration and stability with Nest Detect is by far my favorite.

    Got this to add to the Nest secure system. They seem to work great, just a little curious on the battery life. Other than that, no complaints.

    I like the design and concept of having a motion detector in one unit. The set up was a little quirky. I would go through the process, but it wouldn’t connect. The solution was to move them closer to the Nest Guard (which they were within 5 feet of each other). I did find that if you try the day after the detect will connect to the Guard unit without much issue

    Pricy Dual Purpose Sensor

    Easy to install and add to your Nest Secure. Offers both motion detection and door opening detection. Kind of a waste to use as a horizontal window sensor as I don't believe it has motion detection when installed for this purpose. Operates on battery. I am worried how long the batteries will last as my previous alarm system was wired. Time will tell.
