Nest’s home security system costs $499 and comes with magnetic door sensors

Nick Statt for The Verge: Nest is getting serious about home security with an entirely new product family it’s calling Nest Secure. Announced today at a hardware event in San Francisco, Nest detailed a new modular system that is designed to make home security more modern and simple.

The centerpiece of the system is called Nest Guard, and it’s a small, hockey puck-shaped device with a keypad on top. The device sits at your front door and communicates with a smaller device, called Nest Detect, that can be placed throughout your home. If anyone enters the house and doesn’t disarm the Nest Secure system, the alarm triggers and a large loud siren sound is sent out. For every action along the way, the system sends alerts to your phone.

There are a ton of moving parts to Nest Secure, and while the company’s aim is to design a dead-simple security system, it’s worth going over in detail how it’s all supposed to function. For one, the Nest Guard acts as the central hub, so all the disarming and arming of the security system is done through that device, which contains a motion sensor, connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, and can communicate with Nest’s mobile app.  Full Article:
