I'd like the option of monitoring the home on the app while away from the house, without sounding the alarm or requiring someone to disable a blaring alarm. Mainly to see when kids might be coming and going, or of course if someone has entered without permission. Does Nest Secure/Guard offer such an option?
I am glad to hear that you are interested in our Nest Secure system. I have a fantastic article that goes over the system and what it offers. I would invite you to take a look, and see if this is the right system for you. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
I just wanted to jump in real fast to see if you saw Brad's reply and to see if you still needed some help on this or if you were able to get it sorted out. If you are still needing some help, just let us know and we'll be happy to continue helping.
Thanks for your help here, Brad.
Hi JT and Brad - sorry I didn’t reply right away. Got the message and I have looked over the info. I’ve had the Secure system for a few years now but am just getting around to seeing if it will fit current needs. I know it’s obsolete and has been replaced with a system that may work better, but I thought it was worth a shot to try to adapt this one. I can’t find a good way to have it simply monitor and report to the app without setting off the alarm, so I may have to go a different route. Thanks again to you both.
