Get a seamless experience between smart home devices and security with Google Nest. The Google Nest Secure alarm system keeps protection simple but gives you lots of room to create a connected, safe home.

What Sets Google Nest Secure Apart?

Designed to be easy for you to use but hard on intruders, the Google Nest Secure alarm system comes with the essentials you’ll need to protect your family and home. Google Nest also offers a host of other devices like security cameras, a video doorbell, smart lock and more that you can purchase separately and use with your home security system. 


If you’d like professional monitoring for your system, Google Nest partners with Brinks Home Security, and you can choose between two monitoring plans. The cost of monitoring ranges from $ – $29.00/mo. The $19.00/mo. plan requires a 3-year service agreement with Brinks, but the $29.00/mo. plan does not require a contract. You can purchase the Google Nest alarm system for $399.00 or finance it with Google Store Financing.


What we like

  • Optional professional installation
  • Easy-to-use design

What we don’t like

  • Smart home devices have to be purchased separately
  • Month-to-month professional monitoring is more expensive than the contract option
  • You could lose a Nest Tag key fob for arming/disarming

Our take

The Google Nest Secure alarm system is great for protecting your home with the essentials. One of the perks of Google Nest is being able to use other Nest security and smart home devices to create a more seamless experience. With a Google Assistant-enabled speaker, you’ll be able to issue commands for your alarm system. The Nest Tags make arming and disarming a cinch by simply swiping in or out. The Google Nest Secure alarm system retails for $399.00. 

Package devices and features include:

  • 1 Nest Guard hub
  • 2 Nest Tags
  • 2 Nest Detect motion sensors
