How to turn off the open door chime with Nest Guard

Community Member

We have a chime that goes off every time some one opens an outside door. The chime sounds through the nest guard/ nest aware with the wireless connection to the magnetic door parts. We cannot figure out how to dispel this open door tone

To turn off the open door chime with Nest Guard, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the Nest app on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Tap on the Nest Guard device that you want to adjust.
  3. Tap on the "Settings" icon in the top right corner.
  4. Scroll down and select "Security levels."
  5. Select the security level that you want to customize.
  6. Scroll down to "Chimes" and select "Open door chime."
  7. Toggle the switch to "Off" to disable the open door chime.

If you have multiple Nest Guard devices, you will need to repeat these steps for each device that you want to adjust.

Keep in mind that by turning off the open door chime, you won't hear an alert when a door or window is opened while your Nest Guard is in the disarmed or home and guarding modes.

If you encounter any specific challenges or if the steps vary based on your Nest Guard or Nest Aware system version, it's recommended to consult the user manual or visit the official Nest support website for further guidance. They can provide detailed instructions tailored to your specific device model and software version.

Remember that these instructions are general, and the actual steps may differ slightly depending on the specific version of the Nest app and hardware you are using.
