Samsung's next-gen HD security camera takes aim at NestThe $190 Samsung SmartCam HD Plus promises improved features and an all-new design that's strikingly similar to Nest Cam.
So back in 2014 I reviewed the Samsung smart cam HD pro. That's this camera right here. A 1080p live streaming camera. with two way talk, local storage, and night vision. And now, Samsung is coming out with a new model, the Samsung Smartcam HD Plus. So although these cameras look really different, the specs seem roughly the same. This camera has 1080P, it has night vision, it has Two-way talk, and it has local storage. The package even comes with a 16 GB microSD card to make your life all the more easy. And since Samsung bought the SmartThings startup, a company that allows a multi-protocol hub that lets you turn your home into a smart home, That actually integrates with the SmartCam HD Pro. I'm curious to find out if the new Plus model will also be included in that lineup. One obvious update is its design. It looks a lot like NestCam. It has the same black finish and you can detach the base from the camera. In the same way. So it'll be interesting to see how this camera compares of Nest Cam, and we'll have that review for you soon. Thanks for watching. I'm Megan Wollerton for CNET. [SOUND]
