Back in September, Nest unveiled its first home security system. Set to launch this week, the Nest Secure will use T-Mobile in the U.S. as the “exclusive cellular backup provider,” with retail stores also selling the system as part of a bundle.

The Alphabet division’s security suite is composed of the Nest Guard — a central hub that acts as an alarm, motion sensor, and keypad — and two Nest Detect sensor to attach to windows, doors, and rooms. Buyers will also get two NFC Nest Tags to disarm the alarm without a passcode.

As part of the “T-Mobile Nest security pack,” the carrier is also including a Nest Cam Indoor security camera and the Nest Aware subscription service for intelligence alerts and a 10-day video history.

The Nest Guard can connect to Wi-Fi, but it also includes optional cellular backup through a Cat 1 LTE module. Nest Secures bought anywhere in the U.S. will be able to sign-up for the service for $5 per month.

However, T-Mobile is also bundling that cellular backup service with the Nest Aware subscription for a combined $10 per month (instead of the normal $15).

The T-Mobile bundle is $240 down with a $10 monthly payment for two years. This does not include the additional $10 per month service mentioned earlier. The kits will go on sale in T-Mobile retail stores on November 10.
