As a basic protection system with motion sensors and a keypad, Google launched the Nest Guard in 2017, but it never got an upgrade, even as other Nest systems were upgraded again and again.

The Google Nest Safe framework was launched by Google in 2017. It was designed to be modular, based on a small hockey puck-shaped unit to arm and disarm the machine with a keyboard called the Nest Guard as the central hub, sensors called Nest Detects throughout the building, and NFC key fobs. It also links to the mobile Nest app to allow you to remotely get alerts and arm and disarm the device. The Nest Safe device debuted at $499, but less than a year later, Google lowered the price to $399.
