Nest Secure now lets you enable motion sensors while you’re at home

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Nest Secure launched last year with a hefty price tag and slick operation, but it was a little lacking in features. Nest has dropped the price and pushed out feature updates to address user concerns, but one notable omission has escaped Nest's attention until now. In the latest version of the Nest app, you can finally enable motion detection while you're at home.

Nest Secure has two armed modes. There's Home and Guarding, which you'd usually enable while at home at night.

I don't want anything to do with most of those reasons, so it's highly desirable to know what's going on out there before I open the door. I've used various security cameras for this task, including most recently the Arlo Pro 2.
