What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Affordable equipment: Although you get quality devices, Nest’s prices are a bit on the higher end, especially when it comes to their security cameras.
  • Lower monitoring costs: You’ll pay a minimum of $19 a month for professional monitoring and cellular backup, certainly not the lowest price we’ve seen.

Bottom Line

Perhaps one of the most aesthetically-pleasing security systems we've tested, Nest Secure gave us a ton of options, be it DIY installation, professional installation, self-monitoring, or 24/7 professional monitoring for added security. It's integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant plus LIFX, Hue and more didn't hurt, either!
