Nest already has a product range which includes a learning thermostat you can access anywhere and a smart smoke alarm. For their next trick, they’re making home security easier than ever before.
Say hello to the Nest Cam. It’s a fully HD camera that sets up in second and syncs with your Wi-Fi. And then you can access its feed from any mobile, tablet or laptop to see what’s going on when you’re not there.
That’s just the start of what’s possible with Nest. The camera come with a wide 130 degree field of vision so you’ll always be able to see what’s going on, and the high resolution video means you can zoom in to get a look at details.
It also works in total darkness thanks to its infrared superpowers. So you can see if the kids are sleeping soundly or whether someone is trying to break into your house.
There’s more too – activity zones let you set up an alert when someone moves in a certain part of the house. And one of the best features is not only a speaker but also a mic – you can send and receive audio in high quality. So tell the dog to get off the couch from your office!
The Nest Cam can be used for live streaming but it’s at its best when combined with the ability to automatically record everything that’s going on. With a Nest Aware subscription, you’ll be able to store up to 30 days of footage automatically in the cloud.
That’s perfect for getting up to date with what’s been going on, or tracking down a burglar. And the footage is safe even if the camera itself is stolen as it’s all stored in the cloud.
It even works with previous Nest products, like knowing to turn back on once you access the Thermostat. Or showing you the affected area when your alarm senses smoke.
Nest Cam is the simplest way to bring security to your home via high quality video and the connected power of the cloud and paired devices. And it’s available at Harvey Norman from the 10th of July.
