Google has shut down its Google Nest Secure alarm system, the company first confirmed it Android police. And of course, if you visit Nest Secure’s page on the Google Store right now, there’s a big button at the top that says the product is no longer available.
A Google spokesperson said in a statement, “Google Nest will no longer produce Nest Secure, but we continue to support our security users in every way.” The ledge.
Google introduced the Google Nest secure system in 2017. It was designed to be modular, relying on a small hockey puck-shaped device with keypad guard called the Nest Guard to Central Hub, nest detectors and sensors around the house called NFC Key Hobbs. To disarm the arm and the system. It also connects to the Nest mobile app so that you can receive alerts and arm and disassemble the system remotely. The Nest Secure system was launched at $ 499, but Google reduced its price to $ 399 a year later.
However, the Nest Guard also had a secret, on-device microphone that buyers didn’t know about until Google added Google Assistant support to the device in February 2019. (A few months later, Google released a set of plain-English privacy commitments. Regarding its Nest devices.)
Google is not completely out of smart home security, however. It still sells video doorbells, security cameras, smoke alarms and more. And the company announced a $ 450 million investment in security company ADT in August, saying that Nest devices would “form the cornerstone of ADT’s smart home offering” as part of that announcement.
