    Works well in smaller homes / apartments

    Quick thoughts: Nest Secure is extremely easy to install and use. The Nest application walks you through the install and verifies each sensor is installed correctly. Nest app also gives pointers as to where to install each sensor. Tech know how isn't needed. All mounting hardware is included and easy to use. The system is quite expensive, however. This is especially true if you have a larger home or area to cover with lots of doors and opening windows. I'd recommend this alarm for a smaller home or apartment but would look at other options for larger areas. I ended up with the Ring alarm in the end. Read on to learn why. Okay, so here's the more in-depth review. The Nest Secure feels very well made and of the quality one expects from the price paid. The same goes for the sensors that go with the base station. Install: Set up starts with downloading the Nest app. If you have a Nest camera or smoke detector then you already have the app as they use the same one. The app will literally walk you through the install. First you plug in the base station. Included with Nest Secure is a mount that secures the plug to the outlet with a screw, so it cannot be unplugged by accident. From there all you do is scan the QR code for the base station and it activates it. Then you set up the base station to connect to your home WIFI so it works on it can talk to the Nest app. During this process you'll also choose an alarm code that is typed onto the top of the base (there are buttons that light up with numbers on them). You'll also set up if you want the base to act as a motion sensor which is great. This means that if anyone walks past the base while it is armed then it will set off the alarm. Once that is complete you scan the QR code on one sensor at a time and install that sensor. Then move to the next one. Nest app verifies placement and function prior to finalizing the install of the sensor. Part of this includes having to open and close the window / door that the sensor is placed on. You can also make the sensor sensitive to motion if it is placed on a door. The sensor can also be used for only sensing motion if you want to place it on a wall as a motion detector. When choosing where the sensor is being mounted the app will give you options on using motion or not. The app also asks how the door / window opens to ensure the sensor work correctly. Again, it is super easy to install. The mounting hardware included give you two choices. One is to use the included screws and brackets. The other is to use the included adhesive strips. I chose the adhesive and it is incredibly strong! I never felt as though the sensor would ever fall off. Each sensor includes extra adhesive strips that are pre cut for the sensor size so if you mess up or move you don't have to buy more adhesive. Once all of the sensors are installed then your done. Nice. Use: First, a quick bit of info that I wanted to know when I bought this alarm. The alarm can be set to go off immediately when a sensor is triggered. This is great as when your sleeping at night you don't want to hear a countdown of time to disarm the alarm, you just want it to go off. The same is true if someone tries to break in to your home. The alarm going off is what will hopefully deter the intruder. This is only available if you self-monitor though. If you pay for monitoring you must have a delay, I think of 30 seconds, before the alarm will sound. You can pay for cellular back up and keep the zero delay function though. On to use now. The alarm is easy to use, just as all Nest products are. You can use the alarm without paying for monitoring if you want. If the alarm goes off it will alert you via the Nest app and show you video from your Nest cam nearest the sensor that set the alarm off. If you don't have a Nest cam then the app tells you what sensor set the alarm off. From there you can disarm the alarm within the app or use the alarm code and input it directly on the base. Nest also includes two Keychains that can be used to arm and disarm the alarm. However, they must be placed physically on the base to work. The base has a battery backup as well so if the power goes out it will still work locally. Keep in mind that if you don't pay for cellular backup or monitored service then you won't be alerted via the app if the alarm goes off. It will still work locally though so the siren will sound if set off. You can pay for cellular backup and still monitor the alarm yourself if you want. You can also pay for alarm monitoring which includes cellular backup. Nest will tell you if your base has cell service where you are prior to you signing up for it so you don't pay for something you cannot use. Is it loud: Kind of. The alarm base is the only thing that will make noise and there aren't any remote sirens available. The sound is loud enough to startle someone but not unbearable. It could certainly be louder. When alarming there will be a siren and every few seconds the base will announce which sensor set off the alarm. Is it secure: I don't feel as though the base would be easily hacked or anything. However, the oddly shaped base makes it difficult to mount it inconspicuously. It's designed to be set on a table or counter. The base does have sensors so if someone moves it while it is armed it will go off. The battery backup also means it will off even if unplugged. I still prefer being able to mount an alarm base on a wall though which you cannot do with this. It's one of the few things I don't like. Notable flaw: I had a sensor that kept going off line randomly. This means that the sensor would not alert if the window it was attached to were opened. The Nest app never alerted me to this. I happened to be reviewing the sensor history data within the app and saw that the sensor kept going off line. I removed and reinstalled the sensor from the window and the base station. Same issue occurred. The sensor was 25 feet from the base so proximity wasn't the issue. The sensor may have been defective. However, I don't feel like the app should ignore a sensor that goes off line and not alert the user. This instability caused me to return this alarm for a different model. This may be resolved in a future update. Who's it for: I'd say this is a great alarm for those looking for monitor a smaller home or apartment. It's also great for those that aren't tech savvy as it is so easy to install. How does it compare to the Ring alarm: I have used both in my own home. The Nest feels more premium but that isn't important long term as you don't feel the alarm after install. Both alarms function in a similar fashion and install easily. I did have a Nest sensor that stopped working as mentioned above. That is why I have the Ring alarm now. The major difference with the Ring is the expandability of it. You can mount the alarm base on a wall, I have mine hidden so an intruder cannot easily locate it and visitors don't know I have an alarm. There are keypads that can be mounted anywhere (rechargeable) to arm and disarm the alarm. The sensors are much cheaper and functional reliably. Overall I'd choose the Ring alarm if given the option from the start. It was a bit harder to install but still not difficult. The alarm siren is also a bit louder and you can add remote sirens if you need them outside or further from the base. If you have a lot invested already in the Nest eco system then it makes sense to add the Nest alarm. But don't think you have to.

    Great system! Easy to use and install.

    What makes me a fan of Nest is that their products are so easy to use and install. And they work great! Which is why of all the new home security systems coming out, I decided to go with the Nest Secure. The starter system is pretty expensive and it comes with the base, two sensors, and 2 fobs that can be programmed to enable and disable the alarm by holding it up to the base. Other than mounting hardware, that's all you get. And if you want additional sensors, that will cost you $59 each. Additional fobs will cost $25 each. The Nest Secure may only come with 2 sensors, but unlike traditional door and motion sensors, the sensor for the Nest is both a door and motion sensor. These sensors have other functions while you're home. You can press a button on one of them to disable it if you have to open a door while the rest of the system stays armed. After a minute, it's rearmed. Another cool function is the pathlight. In the dark, the sensors can light up when it senses motion. Pretty useful to help you find your way around the house without turning the lights on. The base station also has a motion sensor built in. So it can do just as much as other systems with less to install. The fobs are easy to program and use. You can also buy and program more and disable them if you needed to. The Nest app is easy to use and if you already own other Nest products, the alarm will join the rest of the Nest devices all within the app. And like with other Nest products, the alarm works together with other Nest devices such as the Nest Cam. Just like other Nest devices, the installation was simple and the setup process was flawless thanks to the in app step by step directions. Depending on how you configure your system, you can have the whole system up and running in as little as 20 minutes. After that, you have the ability to configure the system to your liking such as how much time you can be given to leave when you arm the system. You can arm the system on the app and the app will notify you if any of the sensors are triggered and let you know if the alarm sounds. You will even be notified if you happen to leave the house and forget to arm it. It think overall, it's a great system. It's very easy to use, it's a great design, great quality, and it's another shining example of how Nest thinks differently how a product should work in your home. But everyone's needs are different when it comes to an alarm system. There are lots of things to consider. One example is that while the starter system can do the job for a small home or an apartment, if you own a large home and have a lot of family members living there, you can expand the system to meet those needs but it will cost you. Definitely do your research before getting any alarm system. Because of Nest's reputation and my experience with their other devices, it was worth paying extra to get this.

    Easy to setup, easy to maintain

    When I bought my first house, it had a security system.or at least, an alarm panel by the door and in the bedroom. It was never an active security system, didn't really do much for us other than tell us when the doors were opened and closed. We also had a few panic buttons on the wall that I never had the courage to test out, for fear of terrifying my kids. Over the years, we grew to love the "bee-boop" noise when the doors would open, and the "boo-beep" when they closed; and aside from learning that the previous homeowners had a gun closet (because it was so labeled on the alarm panel), it never did much to enhance our lives.especially the night that the power had been out, and when it came back on in the middle of the night, so too did the alarm. @@@@@@@@ Side note: That night, I learned that my son can sleep through anything. @@@@@@@ We didn't live in a particularly bad neighborhood, but it wasn't a particularly great one either. Still, we entertained on multiple occasions getting a new security system, or at least activating our existing one, with monitoring and the works. But, it never happened: we were either driven away by a price tag (installation, monitoring, etc.), or by the mere fact that we didn't really know what was best and who we could trust. Compared to what's on the market now, security systems from 10 or 15 years ago are so incredibly archaic. I just stumbled across an indiegogo campaign for a $9 security system based on social operation instead of traditional monitoring companies. And while that's on the more extreme side of the shift, it seems as if the security market (to some extent) is headed in a new direction like Uber did a handful of years ago: the notion that we already have the infrastructure and the resources to complete the job, all we need is a new way of looking at it. Enter the Nest Secure, a product of "what if's." The idea for Nest here is a simple one: create an easy to use product that basically manages itself, is easy to set up, isn't confusing, and fits into your life in a way that competitive products don't or can't. I'll be honest: my experience with home security bee-boops and middle-of-the-night alarms jaded me from setting the Nest Secure up when I got it. I assumed I was in for a long installation process-after all, they pay professionals to install security systems! Well, installation (if you can call it that) wasn't much different than unboxing a new wireless router, except with less wires. The Secure is a totally wireless solution that utilizes your existing home wi-fi and an optional cellular backup to make sure that you'ren'tified of any activity that's out of the ordinary. The main panel, the Nest Guard, has only a power cord--and the most difficult part of setup was finding the QR code to scan from my Nest app to get the device added. From there, the app took care of all the other settings with a simple wizard. Also included in the package were two sensors, which can be used three different ways: as a traditional door sensor, as a window sensor (open-close, not break), or as a motion sensor. And, when it's used as a door or window sensor, it also doubles as a motion sensor. These small sensors can be installed virtually anywhere with mounting hardware or the included adhesive strips, and adding them to the system involves scanning the QR code on the back and following the instructions on the app. The final piece of the Nest Secure starter pack is a pair of key fobs, designed to make arming and disarming the system simple. Again, scan the QR, assign the fob to a user, and you're done. "BUT I LOVE MY SECURITY CODE," you might say. Well, you get that too, if you want it-up to 8 digits, and a unique code for each member of your household, which enables you to see who is coming and going, and when. That's basically it. Including watching the instructional videos that the app offers, it took me about an hour to set everything up and train my family how to use it. My kids really enjoyed testing it by trying to sneak past the motion sensors, and my wife didn't [seem to] get totally overwhelmed at having to remember something else when she leaves or comes home. I admit, there'sn'thing mind-blowing here in terms of product, and I think that's at least in part what Nest was going for. It's simple, straight forward security.but it's also got some really cool things that shouldn't go unmentioned: The app is a really great experience; it's easy to use and if you already have another Nest product, your setup time will be reduced. The customizations of home/away, duration between entry/exit and alarm, and notifications are at a Goldilocks level of not too much, not too little. The whole system is completely modular. This isn't too much of a shock in 2017, but it's nice to be able to build your own "package" based upon the entry points and size of your home. Two Nest Detect sensors are most likely not going to be enough for most people, but it's a good starting point. The components aren't cheap, but safety is always something worth investing in, and you can add more over time very easily. Speaking of modular, there's a component that I'ven't mentioned yet-the Nest Connect. The Connect's job is to extend the range of your existing Nest network using a newer wireless protocol called a thread network, which is designed with the Internet of Things in mind. Right now, it's just a range extender-but this thread router can have many other uses as Smart Home adoption increases, with only a software update required. Every component the system comes with is a multi-tasker. The base is the brains of the operation, but has a built in motion sensor; it also has an onboard battery that protects you if the device is unplugged during a breach. The window and door sensors have built-in motion sensors, as well as lights that can help you see in the dark; they also can be deactivated individually if you need to let the dog out or want to get the mail, without turning off the entire system. The tags can arm AND disarm the panel, and the already mentioned Nest Connect helps future-proof the whole system by allowing a virtually limitless secure platform (with no single point of failure) for adding more devices. In spite of all the cool, 2017-ness of these system, it has some traditional stuff that you can pay for optionally. Out of the box, there's no "monitoring" component aside from alerts and notifications; however, if you want a more traditional monitoring experience, you can pay $25-$35 per month depending on contract so that someone else can keep an eye on your system and dispatch police if necessary. And, if your wireless network goes down, you can purchase a cellular backup service for $5 per month or $50 per year that ensures you can always receive notifications regardless of your home wi-fi connection. But security comes at a price. At $499 for the starter kit, $25 for extra fobs and $59 for extra sensors, large homes with many entry points can cost you upwards of $1000 to fully equip. Then again, security is one of those things that's easier to justify spending on, especially if you have kids. And, more traditional (read: archaic) security systems can cost around $1000, most of which is subsidized by the monthly monitoring fee, save for some small installation charge. So it'sn't outlandish, but it's certainly not cheap. I've been satisfied with the system thus far; it's easy to setup, easy to maintain, and has all the flexibility to add or remove components over time when I need to. The price is a hard pill to swallow at first, but for me the extra sense of comfort is enough to justify the price tag.

    Great Build Quality, but Expensive

    I wanted to take my time to throughly use the Nest Secure system before I wrote my review. Nest makes some great products. Their build quality is always great and the devices they make are very intuitive to use. With the Secure system, Nest entered a market that has some competition from big players like ADT to cheaper solutions like SimpliSafe. Below are what I feel are the Pros and Cons of the system. Pros: -Easy to use Base Station (Guard) with ability to add different codes for family -Cool keychain attachment (Tag) to disarm the system without a code -Included sensors (Detect) have motion sensing and a little light built in, as well as sensing if the windows or doors are opened -Ease of installing system and adding devices using the Nest app. -Ability to monitor home while away for free, without any monthly fee -Loud siren Cons: -Expensive: This bundle only comes with 2 Nest Detect sensors. I have 3 doors that lead outside and 12 windows (15 total, 2 secured with included Detects) that need monitoring. Each Nest Detect costs $59. I understand that it is expensive because it packs motion sensing and a light into such a small device, but if I wanted to secure the other 13 entry points into my home, it would cost me around $767. If you want your home fully covered in Nest, then prepare to pay quite a bit of money on top of the base bundle. -System Software: As of now, Nest Secure seems to be in a beta period. There seems to be no connection to any smart home system (Google Assistant, HomeKit, SmartThings). So if you'd like to set up something that turns on the light when you open the front door, it is not available here. -Volume: Although it has a loud siren, when the Nest Guard speaks, the voice volume is pretty low. It would be nice to somehow connect the Nest Guard to a smart speaker (Google Home) that you can hear throughout the house. Nest Secure is a good, basic system with a couple of cool features. Expanding your system gets very expensive. If Nest allowed 3rd party sensors to interact with the Nest Secure, it would make it remarkably better. For example, I do not need a motion sensor on my window that is covered with blinds. Nest should consider a separate door and window sensor for a cheaper price or allow for 3rd party device integration. The software in the app will improve over time and hopefully add new features to the system. If you already have Nest devices, then Nest Secure will fit wonderfully into your home as it uses the same app and you have control of all your devices on one screen.

    Beware of cats

    I like the system but really wish they would have gone with, or also offered, a wall mountable keypad. Arming the system is dead easy, maybe too easy.see below. Adding sensors is simple and much like any other device you want to add to your Nest ecosystem. The sensors are expensive but at least they serve as open/close and motion detection, plus a path light if needed. The integration with an alarm notification and the video timeline is awesome. I like that there's no monthly fee unless you want cellular backup. That's important for it to be free if you're already paying for multiple cameras. Professional monitoring is also available should you prefer the piece of mind to have a third party get involved to notify the proper authorities. Corner mounts for the sensors would be nice so you can take full advantage of the field of view. No back to my wish. We are pet owners, cats in particular. Having this setup on the counter, it wasn't long before a cat found a flaw. While prowling around on the counter, the cat stepped on the keypad and managed to arm it. Of course, when he later decided to move, the motion was detected and the alarm went off. My wife thought the system was faulty but that handy timeline integration revealed what truly happened. If there was an option to require you to enter your code before entering into armed, that might help minimize false alarms. I think ultimately though, I would prefer a wall mounted unit as an option, even if it was a secondary keypad and then I could put the main unit in our bedroom that remains closed off to cats.

    Easy Installation / Not ready for prime time.

    The installation was quick and simple, adding and configuring new sensors is done completely through the app, which instructs you every step of the way. Installation took about 30 minutes from unboxing to completion. No permanent mounting is required during the install, making this system perfect for those concerned with damaging their property/apartment. This system is by far the least intrusive home security system I have seen, unfortunately, this comes at a cost. The biggest flaw is that the system waits 30 seconds before sounding an alarm. This is very concerning, as it gives intruders more than enough time to effectively disable the system with a hammer. Because of the drawbacks noted below, I am unable to recommend this product. Pros: ~Nice sleek design ~Easy setup - Setup took about 30 minutes, everything is done through the Nest App. ~Setting the system to "Away and Guarding" also sets Nest thermostats to eco mode. Cons: ~No option for immediate alarm activation ~Inconsistant reminders. The system is unreliable in notifying you that you've forgotten to set the alarm, as well as asking if you would like to disable when arriving at home. This is an advertised feature, yet fails to work as expected. ~No integration with Google assistant. Which is very surprising, since Google is the parent company. I would like to be able to ask the assistant to set the alarm, rather than having to open the Next app. ~Very little customization - I would like to be able to set the system so it announces that a door or window was opened, even when the system is disarmed. ~Price - Rather expensive, once you add additional sensors, monitoring, and cellular backup. Other systems offer this functionality at a much lower cost. ~Minimal integration with other Nest products - it should connect to the next protect smoke detectors, using them as additional motion sensors, or as a remote speaker/alarm.

      Nest Support

      *UPDATED* We’re releasing an update soon so that Nest Secure will offer Open tones. When the system is disarmed, you can have Nest Guard play a sound when a window or door is opened. You’ll also be able to set Nest Secure's alarm to go off without any delay. Set the alarm countdown to 'No delay' (0 seconds) when coming home. This can be set for both when you are in Home and Guarding or Away and Guarding. It should be finished rolling out to all customers over the next week or so. Nest

    First off let me say I am a huge fan of Nest, it started with my thermostats in the house, then expanded to the smoke / co2 alarms in the house and now this great addition to the suite of expanding products Nest offers. Installation is fairly easy by launching the Nest App and scanning the QR code, starting with the hub and then to the sensors etc The app is intuitive to use and integrates all very nicely. You can arm and disarm the system with the app or with the included "Tag"s. You can add a Nest Cam and professional monitoring of you System will be available some time in 2018 which will come at a cost but isn't necessary. If you already have invested in the Nest ecosystem as many folks have, this system builds well on that foundation, as a stand alone system it's a bit pricey but the great thing about Nest is it just works and there isn't enough that can be said about not having to worry about quirky electronics. Overall it's a great addition to any smart home, I only gave it 4 stars as it's a bit pricey.

    So far my wife and I love this. We moved from SmartThings as a "security platform" to this. Professional monitoring isn't available, however it's coming soon. This will also include cellular backup. It seems like the "quite open" feature gets a lot of bad press because people don't understand it. First you can turn off quite open. Quite open is for when you are set to "Home - Guarding". Quite open isn't available when you are "Away - Guarding". In fact if you press the button while you are "Away" the system will instantly alarm. If you feel the need for more security at night you can also just set the system to "Away - Guard" to get all the features of motion detection and door/window sensor alarming. The sensors are kind of expensive, and it would be nice if they came out with an open close sensor that was just that, open close and no motion for less money. I would buy this for my kitchen door where I also have the hub capturing motion. I do feel that $60 for the sensors are fair considering the feature set. No google home yet, which we saw at the keynote in October but it's coming, and hopefully soon. I also love that this is all within the same app for my cameras, smoke, and thermostat. Setup was super easy, as with any nest product. I would like nest to come out with leak sensors, and open up some features to work with philips hue. Nest also NEEDS to consider a better pricing structure for those that have investing a large amount into the Nest ecosystem. There needs to be a subscription where you can have unlimited cameras, and a subscription that includes cameras, cellular, and professional monitoring for a reasonable cost. $100 for the first camera and $50 for every camera adds up quick.

    I had this installed in my condo it definitely has its pros and cons so I'll start with the pros. - PROS: universal will fit 99% of doors and windows on homes old or new. Super easy to install. If you have a lot of doors and windows, have all products ready. It also pays off if you also have the thermostat and the smoke detectors to install ALL at the same time. Every piece even the keypad has a motion sensor. Works great even with my dog at home just follow the instructions and install the sensors properly you will be just fine even with dogs at home. I have not tried it with pet cats they tent to jump on furniture higher than 3 feet, and it may interfere with motion sensors. -CONS: I also opted in for the Cellular option, so when my internet is down it can still send the alarm; however I don't think that cellular chip helps if you have a power out because the main unit turns off within seconds of unplugging it. Unit comes with two sensors; each sensor can be used for window/door open/ close sensor AND/OR Motion Sensor. Each additional sensor cost $29-39 my man cave condo od 1600sqft has nine doors and windows so it will get pricey if you are securing every window. Also, the downside of having the contact and motion sensor combined at that price is that the ones installed on the windows will not work as motion sensor especially if you have curtains or simple blinds. Even the APP asks you to what kind of window it is so it will turn off the motion sensor to conserve energy from a 1X AA battery. Although combining the contact and motion sensors; I think they should come out with a smaller window only contact sensor at a lower price.

    The system is ridiculously easy to setup and integrates well with the nest system. Really easy to manage and use day to day the sensors seem to work well. A big con is that the remote monitoring service is very expensive for a system they I paid and installed my self. You can change the times and settings in the app for what ever caters to you. I do have a full grown German Shepard so when she stays inside I can't use away mode and just put it on home and guarding. Which works for me. Great system over all.

    I have Five door/window sensors connected to my system. All five go offline at least ten times per day. Support had me reset the base unit and three days later, the same issue continues. Now, support wants me to remove and replace all the batteries: of course, the adhesives come off when you try to open the item. This is a huge waste of money!!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
