The family of products from Nest (a Skynet subsidiary of Alphabet) is growing more and more to build a robust security system for our homes. The company’s first launch since the departure of its co-founder, Tony Fadell, is called Nest Cam Outdoor.
It is a camera designed to stay outdoors, monitoring everything that happens 24 hours a day.
A while ago, the company had launched Nest Cam, which stands firm on any flat surface and is a solution for monitoring your home from the inside. With her help, many thieves have already been identified and many thefts have been avoided. With the arrival of Nest Cam Outdoor, the first was renamed Nest Cam Indoor.
The design of the external camera is much more beautiful and purposefully flashy – houses with cameras outside are less prone to theft. Unlike surveillance cameras on the market, it is easily installed and does not rely on batteries or motion sensors, so it remains on 24 hours a day. Since it is intended to be outdoors, it is resistant to both hot sun and rain / snow. The lenses are 130 degree wide angle, with Full HD resolution (1080p).
Whenever the camera sees a movement, an alert is sent to your smartphone and you can see what is happening live; you can also send voice messages. In this way, anyone who is close to the camera will be able to be heard and will also hear through the built-in speakers – a great feature to answer people at the door or to surprise anyone who tries to enter your home without being called.
Unfortunately, the camera will not integrate with Apple’s HomeKit – only Google Home (we’re talking about a company controlled by Google, after all).
Nest Cam Outdoor is expected to hit the market in September / October, costing salty $ 200 (same value as your version indoor). Within the application – which, according to the company, will soon be remodeled – it will also be possible to subscribe for US $ 10 / month with some additional features, such as facial recognition.
