Nest Cam with battery is smart and unsurprising

Security Cameras
Speaker 1: Google is back in the smart home security saddle with a new $180 nest cam. We can compete with our favorite smart cameras. Let's find out, Okay, technically this thing is called the nest cam outdoor or indoor battery, but for the sake of simplicity, I I'm gonna call it the nest cam indoor outdoor. In this video, we'll take a look at smart features, design user friendliness, and more to see how the newness cam stacks up Speaker 1: [00:00:30] The newness cam is designed. You guessed it for indoor and outdoor use. It costs $180 and can Mount either ly with the included wall plate, screw and anchors, or you can place it on a $30 sold separately. Stand. What you should not do is follow my producer's lead and Mount it with three M tape. Even if you think it'll be fine, that did not end well as you can see, it only comes in one color. No it's 3.27 inches wide and weighs 14 ounces, which doesn't sound like much, but given the size, [00:01:00] it feels really heavy for comparison. The latest wise cam waste just shy three and a half ounces and is only two inches across. Since it's an outdoor model. I don't mind that so much. The magnets connecting the camera to the base and the base to a surface are strong, still it's large heavy, and it's definitely not going to hide in the corner in conspicuously. Speaker 1: It's also important to note that while the nest cam indoor outdoor is IP 54 weather resistant, it's not weather proof. So you should still Mount it in a relatively shielded outdoor location. The nest Camm indoor outdoor has all the camera stats you'd expect [00:01:30] to see like 10 80 P HD video night vision, a 130 degree diagonal field of view, six time digital zoom and two-way audio battery life is expected to be somewhere between one and a half to seven months, depending on your or selected battery settings and how often events are recorded. I charge this nest cam to 100% and 24 hours later, I was down to 97 and that's in default battery mode with automatic battery saver enabled not too bad. Now, if you want to wire this camera up, you can do that as well. But like the indoor stand, the $35 [00:02:00] weatherproof cable is sold separately. Speaker 1: Google is sun setting. The, the old nest cams and nest Camm IQs, a refresh to this lineup was long overdue, and we're happy to see that Google includes more features for free without a nest wear subscription. You'll still get alerts for customizable activity zones, as well as motion people, animals, and vehicles. Thanks to a new machine learning chip. You'll also get a three hour event history. That means that you'll be able to see any events recorded in the last three hours. If it's been longer than that, your clip will no longer be available. Add a Nesta wear subscription [00:02:30] for $6 a month, and you'll get familiar face detection and sound alerts. The ability to call 9 1 1 from the Google home app and 30 days of event video history, upgrade that to Nesta wear plus for $12 a month. And you'll get all of those options. Plus 60 days of video, those upgrades might be important for people who know they'll be recording in a high traffic area or somewhere that really needs constant surveillance. But for most people, the free features included will be plenty to get you started. Speaker 1: If you're concerned about security, Google is ready to pitch you. Its latest promise [00:03:00] video footage on nests cam indoor outdoor is encrypted while in transit. And while at rest on nest servers processing for detection of objects and facial recognition all happen locally on the device. That's not the best encryption on the market though. Ring encrypts end to end, but only on wire devices and only if you often the nests cam indoor outdoor does ever everything I'd expected to do it works seamlessly with the Google home app and nest ware offers several nice feature upgrades. Still. It's a hard sell for me at 180 bucks, unless you're really invested in having nest products in your home. [00:03:30] The similar yet smaller, lighter and more weatherproof wise cam V3 is just $37. And if you add on the wise cam plus subscription for people in object detect, you're still well under that $180 mark at around 60 bucks, it also includes free cloud storage for 14 days of events. Speaker 1: Then there's AR those new $200 pro for camera with a two K resolution and a wider field of view than the nest cam. We haven't reviewed that one yet, but we plan to in the near future, all that to say you have options these days when it comes to outdoor camera and [00:04:00] the new nest cam isn't the best on specs or price, but it is the Goas. If you have your heart set on a nest cam, don't fret, this one works well and it's not even the only camera Google is launching this year. There will also be a wired version for indoor only use called nest cam indoor wired. We don't have an availability date for that yet, but Google tells us it lost $100, their cheapest camera offering yet. There's also a new nest doorbell and we have a video review of that up on our channel as well. What do you think about Google's new nest cam are more free [00:04:30] features enough to lure you in, let me know in the comments and as always I can subscribe to our channel for more from thenot smart home. Thanks for watching. I know what you're thinking. Wouldn't it be cool if we had footage of when this thing at the ground? Yeah, I would. We don't.
