Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor, battery)
Google’s 2021 edition of the Nest Cam is a smart, battery-powered security camera used indoors and outdoors. The camera tracks motion, people, vehicles, animals in a 130-degree field of view; saves a three-hour history of video clips; and records during a Wi-FI outage for up to one hour. You can also buy a waterproof cable separately for continuous power and enable the 24/7 ongoing video history feature.
The cheaper alternative:
Nest Cam (indoor, wired)
The most affordable Google’s Nest device is the Nest Cam (indoor, wired), which features most of the same features as the battery-powered Nest Cam, but isn’t weather resistant. However, the indoor version features a slightly larger field of vision at 135 degrees (diagonal) and comes in four colors: Snow, Linen, Fog, and Sand with a maple wood base.
Biggest and best:
Nest Cam with floodlight (wired)
The Nest Cam with floodlight (wired) takes the Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor) to the next level by adding a smart floodlight and eliminating the need for batteries. This device features Two LED lights and 180-degree motion detection for enhanced visibility and clearer video recordings. You can also customize when the lights turn on and off, dimness, and sensitivity.
A safer home:
Nest Doorbell (battery)
The Nest Doorbell (battery) is a wire-free, battery-powered video doorbell. In addition to sending alerts about activity, this device allows you to answer the door remotely in real-time or leave pre-set messages. The Nest Doorbell (battery) is also designed with a vertical field and HDR capabilities, which allows you to see figures in low light and darkness.
Nest Doorbell (wired)
A step up from the battery-powered doorbell, the Nest Doorbell (wired) boasts a larger field of vision and sends alerts regarding familiar faces, packages, and sound. It also provides still images as part of its three-hour event history feature and 24/7 video history with Nest Aware Plus. While the cheaper model operates via the Google Home app, the Nest Doorbell (wired) requires the Nest app.
Safe home HQ:
Nest Hub Max
A step up from the original Nest Hub and Nest Hub (2nd Gen), the Google Nest Hub Max features a Nest camera at the top of the display, which offers most of the same features as the Nest Cam, including intruder alerts. The Nest Hub Max also boasts the highest-quality audio works seamlessly with other connected Nest Cam devices around the house.
