Nest's vision of the secure home is rooted in simplicity

The Nest Cam IQ indoor is turning into a little Google Home

The Nest Cam IQ indoor is turning into a little Google Home

With Nest Hello, you can identify visitors and converse with them remotely. If you subscribe to Nest Aware, you'll get even more features, such as familiar face recognition and sound-based alerts.

At an event in San Francisco this morning, Alphabet subsidiary Nest has unveiled a new suite of products including the Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Hello video doorbell, and Nest Cam IQ outdoor. Like the Nest Cam IQ cameras, the camera has HDR support. The Nest Guard is the security system's "brains", said Nest product marketing chief Maxine Veron.

Three-quarters of USA households don't have security systems, and of those that do, 43 percent don't turn them on, said Nest's head of product marketing Maxime Veron. It combines three different devices that can also be purchased individually: the Nest Guard, which is a central hub that controls the whole system; Nest Detect sensors that track the opening and closing of doors and windows; and the Nest Tag, which is essentially a remote that can arm or disarm the system as you come and go.

The final piece of the puzzle is the Nest Tag, an NFC-enabled key fob that lets you enable and disable the system by tabbing it on the Nest Guard.

The base unit plus two sensors and two fobs sells for $499. Extra tags cost $25 each, and sensors are $59 each.

Apple iPhone X: Here's the estimated production cost
The iPhone X eliminates the home button and fingerprint sensor and scans your face to unlock the device. Apple this week unveiled the iPhone X , described by CEO Tim Cook as "the future of the smartphone".

The new doorbells will also alert homeowners via the mobile app whether a delivery person is at their door.

The idea is far from original.

Ring has already released a second-gen version of its video doorbell, the Ring 2. At the bottom of the oval-shaped doorbell is the main button, which features an LED ring around it that lights up blue when pushed, while a glass-covered camera lens is positioned at the top and there is a small Nest logo in the middle of the device. If you have one on your person, it will temporarily disarm the system so that you don't have to open the app or type in the passcode on your Nest Guard.

There's no pricing or availability information for the Nest Hello yet, though you can sign up for updates at Nest's website. The company has since branched out from so-called smart thermostats by introducing other products like Internet-connected indoor cameras that let people see video of their homes through their smartphones.

That 4K sensor gives the Nest Cam IQ some interesting capabilities Nest calls "Supersight".

Khalid Latif banned for 5 years over PSL spot-fixing case
Talking to newsmen the cricketing board's legal advisor, Mr Taffazul Rizvi expressed that Latif could challenge the punishment. The development will just be marred due to such scandalous instances.

In fact, I'd say Nest's biggest challenge with Secure will not be detecting bad guys, but eliminating the false positives that plague rival products. It also has a tamper-resistant mount.

After it was acquired by Google in 2014 for $3.2 billion, Nest struggled with internal drama and complaints about founder and CEO Tony Fadell's management style. There is also a microphone on the right of the device, just above the Nest logo. Customers have the option to add additional monitoring and deterrence by adding Nest Cams to their system, which are all controlled from the same Nest app.

Your home is secure, but how about your data?

At the prices above, Nest is more expensive than other systems on the market.

"Google's security is probably some of the best in the world, and everything we do passes their security audit", Turner told CNN Tech.
