Google Nest Secure Alarm System discontinued by Google

The Google Nest Secure alarm system has been discontinued by Google. On the Google Store if you visit Nest Secure page it would reveal that the product is no longer available.

A Google spokesperson in a statement said, “Google Nest will no longer be producing Nest Secure, however, we will continue to support our security users in all the same ways.”

According to the report, Google introduced the Google Nest Secure system in 2017. It was designed to be modular, relying on a small hockey puck-shaped device with a keypad called the Nest Guard as the central hub, sensors around the house called Nest Detects, and NFC key fobs to arm and disarm the system. It also connects to the Nest mobile app so you can get alerts and arm and disarm the system remotely. The Nest Secure system launched at $499, but Google dropped the price to $399 less than 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 about its Nest devices.)

Google is not totally out of smart home security, though. Yet it sells video doorbells, security cameras, smoke alarms, and more. And the company made the announcement of $450 million investment in security company ADT in August, stating that Nest devices will “become the cornerstone of ADT’s smart home offering” as part of that announcement.
