Nest takes on home defense with its Secure alarm system

by John_A

Nest wants to manage every aspect of your home’s security — not just its thermostats and cameras. The company has announced a slew of products designed to keep an eye on your home while you’re away, under the Nest Secure banner. That includes a Google-Home-looking Guard control system, Detect sensors (placed in rooms, near windows and doors) and a Tag keychain that arms and disarms the security hub.

A bundle with the newly announced IQ facial-recognition camera will be available at Best Buy for $599.
