Expert Reviews
Tested by tink expert

These smart sensors bring a remarkable amount of capabilities into one, finger-sized product. They function as both motion and open/close sensors, so that you need fewer devices to keep your home safe. Buying additional Google Nest Detects is especially advisable for anyone with a larger home with more than one entrance. We were won over by the sleek design and the versitility of these smart sensors.

Product Information
  • Two sensors in one device: This smart sensor can detect motion and opening/closing depending on where you place it. Mount it on a window, and it detects opening/closing. Place it on a wall, and it detects motion. Alternatively, place it on a door and it detects both.
  • A light in the night: When Pathlight is turned on, the Nest Detect will automatically turn on a light when it detects motion at night. So no more stumbling around when you walk through the house in the dark.
  • Tamper Detection: The Google Nest Detect knows when it's being tampered with. If it's taken from its baseplate when the system is armed, it will send you a notification and sound the alarm.
  • Fewer false alarms: The Reduced Sensitivity feature can be set up to prevent false alarms triggered by your pets. Simply place it at the designated height, and you'll receive fewer notifications set off by pets weighing 40 pounds or less.
  • Part of the Nest Secure family: This motion detector works within the Nest Secure home security system, so you'll need to connect it with the Nest Guard base station to get started. Once it's set up, you can receive notifications on your smartphone and check up on your home from wherever you are.
  • Voice control with the Google Assistant: Nest Secure is compatible with Google Assistant devices, so you can control your security system with just the sound of your voice.

The Google Nest Detect in action

This smart sensor works as a part of the Nest Secure system to make your home security comfortable and convenient. You can place these sensors anywhere in your home, and they'll detect motion and/or opening and closing. Features such as Quiet Open, which lets you open a door without setting off an alarm, help your security system blend seamlessly into your daily life.

Installing Google Nest Detect

Installing the Google Nest Detect could not be simpler. The first step is to set up the Nest Guard base station. After this, you'll want to decide where in your home to install the indoor sensors. Good places to start with are entrances and parts of the house not visible from the street. Then open up the Nest App and let it guide you through the rest of the installation process. In the app, you'll find advice about where and how exactly to mount the sensors. Adhesive strips and screws are included to make mounting even simpler.

Connect Nest Secure with your Google Assistant for even more convenience. Then you can arm the system and check up on the security status with just your voice.

What is the motion detection range of the Google Nest Detect?

Nest Detect can detect motion within 15 feet. When Reduced Sensitivity is activated, the range is 10 feet.

Why can't the Google Nest Detect sense motion when placed on a window?

Motion sensing is deactivated for windows beacuse it could result in false alarms triggered by motion outside the window.
