T-Mobile has announced it will sell a Nest Secure bundle beginning November 10th.

T-Mobile's bundle costs $240 down and $10 per month for 24 months on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan (for a total of $480) for the hardware.

According to a statement issued by the company, purchase of the security pack will also require a monthly T-Mobile Nest plan that includes cellular backup and the Nest Aware service, which provides intelligent alerts and 10 days of video storage for Nest Cam owners. With this partnership, you'll be able to get Nest Secure that has additional cellular backup and notification capabilities powered by T-Mobile's network.

The T-Mobile Nest security pack will be available in stores, through Customer Care, or by calling 1-800-T-Mobile. T-Mobile joins a host of other communications service providers who now offer some form of home security, including AT&T and Comcast, among others, large and small. Additionally, with WiFi down or power out, you'll still get notifications from Nest Secure, thanks to the network connection. More importantly, a separate data plan that covers applicable devices in the system costs $10 per month after a $5 bill credit.

When purchased straight through Nest, the Nest Secure alarm system starter pack (the same stuff as listed above, without T-Mobile coverage) would cost approximately $500 United States dollars. The $10 per month will last until the total payment of $480 United States dollars is reached. The equipment will have, while the $10 T-Mobile Nest plan will continue as long as it's covering your Nest system.
