What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nest Cam Security Camera
  • The resolution is excellent and the motion/sound alerts are wonderful.
  • You will obviously lose some resolution, but we have found it to be quite acceptable still.
  • The phone application required a little figuring out to get things correct. The camera is dependent on your internet connection so if it's fast it will work better. The focal length is about one average size room.
  • This camera has a great picture and is very quick and easy to set up. I like that I can see the video on any device just by logging into my Nest account. It has a wide field of view that allows me to see the entire room.
  • I can no longer get good resolution when I zoom ... it simply hyper zooms beyond the point I've established, and all I see is pixelation.

What customers say about "Features"
Nest Cam Security Camera
  • I can't say enough good things about the new app. The feature to scrub through a timeline to quickly see activities is perfect.
  • The "alert" system is oddly conceived. You only get alerts every 30 minutes. So, since we use the unit as a baby monitor, we have to constantly keep an eye on it. It won't alert you again until you enter into a new 30 minute window.
  • Another good feature is that Nest e-mails you every time there is a break in Wi-Fi service. The Nest camera system would be a great security camera system but it is also ideal to help and keep track of elderly parents.
  • The motion alert feature is great for when you are away, but I wish Nest would concede some short amount of video history for casual users.
  • The only issue I have is with the storage side. I have no problems with paying or anything like that or even the tiers. The issue is for goodness sakes why is it not available for us in more countries - sort this out as to me its the most limiting problem.
