Google Assistant devices, including Android phones and Wear devices, are now fully supported for voice-control of the Nest Secure alarm systems.
The long-awaited integration has occurred subsequent to the second acquisition of Nest Secure by Google. Known for its thermostats and user-friendly security cameras, Alphabet acquired Nest for $3.2 billion.
However, the recent integration with the Nest Secure alarm system provides limited functionality, lacking the two-way audio. Disarming the PIN security function is required in order to enable the Google Assistant. The system can only be disarmed by voice if it was armed through voice control initially.
Optimistically, the technology advancement of the Nest Secure alarm system allows owners to verbally communicate with Google Assistant remotely, monitoring the status of their home and arming the system with space to improve functionality.
