Can Nest Secure broadcast the 85 decibel alarm through Nest Protect or Nest Speakers?

When the Nest Secure alarm is triggered, I would like to be able to hear it throughout our house.

With the Nest Secure pod, on the 3rd-level, we can barely hear it on the 1st-level if it sounds.  A second Nest Secure unit on the 1st-level would have alleviated that issue.  Since that configuration does not work, do I need to integrate Google/Nest speakers into the system to amplify the alarm sound?  My wife isn't a fan of having "Google listening posts" scattered throughout the house, so I would want to have the microphones turned-off, but still be able to transmit the alarm sound if triggered.  We have a Google Home Hub, and it doesn't transmit the alarm sound or even provide a visual warning (i.e., bright flashing screen), which I find an odd lack of integration.

Hi there,


Sorry for my late response. Thank you for all of your patience while waiting for a reply. I just wanted to make sure that your issue is addressed. Terribly sorry to hear that are unable to hear the doorbell chime. You can set up speaker groups but you wouldn't be able to use the Nest Secure products to do this. Please let me know if you need further assistance. 


Best Regards,
