Life with Nest

Bradley’s neighborhood watch

Nest’s mission is to create a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it. This series of customer stories reveals what that means in the real world and what it’s like to live a "Life with Nest."

Nest to join forces with Google’s hardware team: Smart homes are no longer just a thing of the future. They make families feel safer with connected security systems.

One day, as I walked out of my garage and into my truck, I noticed two men sitting in a blue car next to mine, both wearing ski masks. Odd? 100%. Naturally, I called our non-emergency line here in Vegas (since, obviously these two were not going to be skiing).

Good thing I did!

I got home to find more than two dozen cop cars at the end of my street. Turns out those two carjacked my neighbor at gunpoint with her two young children in the car. Thankfully she’s okay!

The detectives came knocking at my door because they saw my Nest Cams and were overjoyed to find exactly what they wanted. My outdoor cams had captured everything. You can even hear the men demanding my neighbor get out of her car.

The two suspects were caught hours later, and the car was returned relatively unscathed.

I’m so happy to be a Nest owner, and have decided to purchase a Nest Secure and a few more cameras to show my support.

Thanks, Nest!
