How to install and set up Google Nest Secure

SPEAKER 1: Welcome to Nest. We’re going to show you
how to install and setup the Nest secure alarm system. Everything you need to
get started is in the box. We’ve also included a
detailed user guide, screws, and extra adhesive strips. You may also need a Phillips
screwdriver and a tape measure. If you’re going to use the
optional screws to install Nest Detects, you
might need a drill. The app will guide
you through each step. Here’s a preview. You’ll set up Nest Guard
first, since it’s the hub that controls the system. Then you can set up Nest
Tags and give them to people so they can easily arm
and disarm the alarm. After that, you’ll set up
and install the Nest Detects sensors on doors, walls,
and windows in your home. You’ll also try it out to make
sure everything’s working. Let’s get started. If you’re new to Nest, go to the
Apple App Store or Google Play to download the Nest app. Launch the app and
create an account. If you already have
a Nest account, make sure you’re using the
latest version of the app and sign in. Once you’re signed into
your account, tap Add. If you already have a Nest
product in your account, go to the Settings menu
and tap Add Product. Then scan the code on the bottom
of Nest Guard with your phone. The app will walk you through
setup and installation. First, you’ll need to
find a place for Guard so you can plug it in. It’s best to place Guard
near your front or back door, or wherever you leave
and enter most often. Put it on a table or shelf so
it’s between 28 and 42 inches above the floor. Guard also has a motion sensor. So make sure it has a
clear view of the room. Connect Guard’s power
cable and plug it in. Install the adapter bracket
to help keep the plug secure. It’s designed to work
on most outlet covers with a screw in the middle. When Guard is
powered up, it will let you know it’s ready
to add your Nest account. SPEAKER 2: Use your
Nest app to begin setup. SPEAKER 1: Now you’ll
connect Guard to Wi-Fi. Pick up your phone and
make sure Bluetooth is on. The app will connect to Guard
and look for Wi-Fi networks. If you already have a
Nest product in your home, Guard may use it to
automatically connect to the network. If Guard can’t automatically
connect to Wi-Fi, the app will ask you to
select your Wi-Fi network and enter the password. If you see an error code or
you need more help connecting your Guard to Wi-Fi,
visit Once Guard is
connected to the app, you’ll choose some options. Here’s a preview. Turn on reduced
sensitivity to help prevent false alarms if you have
a medium- or small-sized dog. Tell the app where
you’ve installed Guard. The app will use the room you
choose for alerts and important notifications. So pick one that makes sense. Choose a passcode to arm
and disarm the alarm. Guard will have you try out your
passcode and the motion sensor. Once you’re done
setting up Guard, the app will ask if you want
to set up any more products. Select Continue Adding. We’ll setup Tags next. Tags let people arm
and disarm the alarm without using a passcode. The app will have you scan
the code on your Nest Tag. You can assign a Tag to
yourself or someone else. You’ll see a list of people
who already share access to your Nest home. Tap on one to assign
the Tag to them. If you don’t see the person
you want, Add a Person. Once the Tag has
been set up, you can try arming and
disarming with it. Set up the rest of your
Tags until you’re finished. Next, we’ll set up
Nest Detect sensors so you can install
them around your home. The app will ask you if you want
to set up any more products. Select Continue Adding. Then scan the code on
Detect’s battery tab. If you’re having trouble
scanning the code, make sure you have good lighting
and that you’re not casting a shadow on your Detect. If the battery tab has
already been removed, you can find the code by
opening Detect and removing the battery. You should be close to Guard
so your Detect can easily connect to it. Pull out the battery tab
when the app tells you. Your Detect’s light ring
should start pulsing blue. If it’s not pulsing blue,
press the button to wake it up. Once Detect is
connected to Guard, you’ll tell the app where
you’re going to install it. Detect will sense
different kinds of activity depending on where you tell
the app you’re installing it. On a door, it can tell you
when it opens and closes, or when it detects motion. On a wall, it can tell you
when it detects motion. On a window, it can tell
you when it opens or closes. If you’re installing
it on a window or door, make sure you pick the right
kind so the app can help you install Detect correctly. Next, you’ll give your
Detect a location name. Nest Guard and the app will
use this name for spoken alerts and notifications. So pick a location that
makes sense to you. You can also type in a
custom label if you want. This will help if you
have more than one Detect in the same room. Now that you’re done setting
up your Detect with the app, you can install it. But before you get started,
here are some important tips for installing Detects. To help prevent
false alarms, there are some places where you
shouldn’t install Detects. Install Detects at least
three feet from heat sources, like vents and heaters,
further if the source is large, like a fireplace. Don’t place Detects near
things that move, like fans. Keep Detects out
of direct sunlight. Don’t install Detects
on staircases. Follow the height guidelines. Detect should be installed
between 5 feet and 6 feet 4 inches above the floor when
installed on a wall or door. If you install Detect
higher or lower, you may get false alarms or the
sensing range may be reduced. If you have a small
dog, and you’re going to enable
reduced sensitivity, you need to install
Nest Detect exactly 6 feet 4 inches above the floor. Nest Detect’s button is
also a motion sensor, so always install it
facing towards the floor. Nest Detect comes ready for
installation on flat surfaces, but you’ll need to use
the included corner back plate for installing
Detect in a wall corner. Carefully remove the back plate. You may need a flat head
screwdriver to pry it off. Then press on the
corner back plate until it snaps into place. Detect always gets installed
on the handle side of a door. Don’t install it
on the hinge side. Install Detect on the sash
or moving part of the window, then install the open/close
magnet on the window frame. If your window
frame is too narrow and the open/close
magnet doesn’t fit, you can get a mini
magnet from us. The app will guide you
with specific instructions for each kind of installation,
so follow them closely. If you’re installing
Detect on a window or door, the open/close magnet needs
to be installed precisely. Detect will let you know
when it’s correctly aligned with the bottom of the magnet. For doors with
thick frames, make sure Detect’s sensor
isn’t blocked. If it is, Detect could have
trouble detecting motion. You can use the adhesive strip
that’s already on your Detect. The adhesive is very strong, and
it will work on most surfaces. Or you can use the included
screws for installation. Once you’re done
mounting your Detect, you’ll check the
setup with the app. Then you can continue installing
the rest of your Detects, or customize the time you
have before the alarm sounds. You can also check out some
videos about using Nest Secure. That’s it. To learn more about Nest
Secure and how to use it, go to our support site.

  1. Pay attention to such important functional features as – reserve power supply of the central unit, connection by means of GSM. Also I want you to take into account the experience of the company

  2. I use your camera NEST cam outdoor, the product itself is excellent, the purity of performance and attention to detail, as well as the corrected shortcomings in the new generation of the outdoor camera NEST IQ deserve applauses. But regarding the program part of the product there are a lot of comments, the support of the product in different countries. My country Ukraine is not supported, which brings me disappointment. I have high hopes for you as a manufacturer of electronic automation systems and security systems. I wish you success and development. You can become the number one in this segment of the market.

  3. Why a contact sensor AND motion sensor? If you use it on a window with blinds, the motion sense becomes rather useless. There are better hidden door sensors.

    Are more sensors coming? Its just ZWAVE. Will it work with any zwave sensor?

  4. Nest Tag??? Who wants to have another device in their pocket, keychain, etc. Why not use bluetooth on your smart phone and or temp key pad number thats good for a given time, day?? This base should have a camera, mic, and 5" to 7" touch screen built into it along with the motion sensor for the price of this kit. This kit as is should have been priced at $299 at best Nest with 3 Nest Detects not 2.

  5. Any plans of getting the Nest Secure to communicate with Nest Protect? It would be great to transfer the alarm to the protect units to amplify the alarm sound

  6. Great new product… But I still have a lot more questions. I'm sure my questions are all answered in other video clips.

  7. Ok So there is no place to put this for me so is it okay if I put it on a shelf above my fireplace? It's about 4 feet

  8. This works well>>>   It is sensitive so I do get alerts if the trees move due to wind.

  9. You also need to put it in a steel cage so the intruder can't pick it up and throw it in a toilet as when it goes off lights start flashing so he can see it and the voice announcements warn him that it is going to go off. Simple solution, smash it ir put it in water, better yet put it in your pocket. This thing needs a lot of work!

  10. This video is confusing. 5:41 shows the detect BETWEEN the 6’ 4” range, but at 5:54 it’s shown with the base AT and above 6’ 4”. Which is correct for install for reduced sensitivity for pets?

  11. I'd totally buy it if the guard and it's keypad were separate from each other. Better yet external siren, guard, and wall mounted keypad. Great design though

  12. Holy Crap – Why isn't anyone talking about the fact that they just got hacked. This is a good attempt but there is less expensive stuff out there that has decades of history in the marketplace. What the hell???? I got an Interlogix Ultrasync. It has video, and app, automation and LOOOOOOOOOOts of options. Jeesh.

  13. HAHAHA!  Make sure it's RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR BED!  Idiots, really sheeple are idiots!  Google implanted a hidden microphone in it, to allow the Google Nazi Youth to listen and spy on customers, and sheeple don't take time to do their research on this crap, sad!

  14. If you have a bigger house with more than one point of entry, can you purchase multiple Nest Guards and have it all integrated?

  15. If it doesn’t detect broken windows, what’s the point of installing them there? I don’t think anyone is going to bother trying to open it from the outside.
