A panic alarm can help scare off potential intruders by sounding a loud siren. The panic button is located on the rear of Google Nest Guard, above the power port. It works the same whether your system is set to Away and Guarding, Home and Guarding or Off. Google Nest Secure can also send a notification to anyone who shares access to your home; however, it won’t notify the police or any professional monitoring service.
How to use the panic button
Press and hold the panic button on the back of Nest Guard until the alarm sounds. The light ring will also turn red.
Note: If you release the button before the light ring fully turns red, the alarm won’t sound. That way, if you accidentally touch the panic button you won’t trigger the alarm.
How to silence a panic alarm
The panic alarm will continue to sound for 10 minutes or until you silence it by disarming your system by entering a passcode on Guard, holding Tag on Guard, or by using the Nest app. For more information, see the following article:
