    Recently bought a Nest Secure from eBay which was sold as new and still sealed. Plastic foild had been ripped off and was simply lying on top of the box, and the additional seal on the box itself had clearly been cut open before, with a piece of tape padding the cut line. The things people do to earn more. Yuck. I hope they have fun paying for international shipping both ways. They sent it in a much too big box, driving the cost up, and I intend to ship it back exactly the same way once the return is accepted.

    More good news, in case you hadn't heard... the "Nest Secure" ain't so secure... "so to *speak*"... ;)

    Google claims built-in Nest mic was ‘never intended to be a secret’
    The feature emerged after Google Assistant support was added to Nest Secure

    Yes, I probably won't order another one if the return goes through, so money saved could be an upside. I'm not too worried about the mic, and am happy it recieved a Google Assistant update, but it's simply overkill. I live in a quiet part of the city, on the top floor of an apartment building with a single entrance. I bought it to be sure I'd know if the door was ever opened when I'm away, but a break-in scenario is extremely unlikely. Bicycle theft is the only type of crime I see and hear about in the city of Papusan.
