Nest updates its app to support the just-released Nest Secure alarm system

Nest announced its Secure alarm system in September, but the starter pack just became available for purchase today. And to go with that, Nest has updated its app to support the features of the Secure.

You can now add your Nest Secure to the app and control everything about it. The dashboard-like screen lets you quickly arm and disarm, with the option to get reminders if you go away and forget to turn on the system. Now that's one neat feature of "smart" alarms that you won't find in the traditional systems. You obviously get push notifications when the alarm goes off, but you can also check the state of all your door/window and motion sensors, set schedules for your system, see a history of all the events, and invite momentary guests with visiting hours.

Blink expands its security camera with new paid monthly plans and "Seecurity" kits with 4G support, keypad, sensors, and siren

Blink, the company that makes affordable and portable home security cameras (see my full review), has been on a bit of a roll over the past few months. First, it added Alexa support to arm and disarm the system and inquire about the latest recorded videos, then it announced an outdoor camera, the Blink XT, with weather-proofing, 1080p video, and an IR night vision sensor. Now it's releasing a whole host of upgrades and gear to complement its system.

To begin, Blink's Sync Module, the one that connects to your WiFi and serves as the central hub for all the small wireless cameras, has an upgraded version with 4G Cellular support and battery backup so your system remains up and accessible even when WiFi is down and there's no power.
