Google Has Discontinued Its Nest Safe Machine
Several years ago, Google introduced the Nest Secure. For those unfamiliar, the Nest Secure is an alarm system that actually fits in rather nicely with the company’s Nest series of smart home devices. It was also Google’s only Nest alarm system that they had not bothered to update for the past few years.
Unfortunately, if you were hoping to see a new model, you will be disappointed to learn that will not be happening. In fact, Google seems to have discontinued the model outright. The Nest Secure is now listed as being “No Longer Available”, although if you still want to get your hands on it, it appears to still be available through third-party retailers, but we imagine that whatever’s remaining is the last of the stock and that they will not be restocked once they’re sold out.
It is unclear why Google has decided to discontinue the Nest Secure without introducing a replacement. Perhaps there could be replacement but it will come under a different name, but that’s just speculation on our end. Google reassures users that the Nest Secure’s system will continue to work for current owners, but given the discontinuation, you should probably not expect to see updates to the device in the future.
