Google Nest Cam (wired) review: Keeping watch with confidence


Keeping a watchful eye out is important for any security camera. The Google Nest Cam (indoor, wired) has you covered so you only get meaningful alerts.

“This is one security camera that doesn't require constant babysitting thanks to its smart features.”

Google Nest Cam With Floodlight (Wired) Review


Sharp 1080p video ; Bright LEDs ; Supports Google Assistant commands ; Intelligent alerts ; Dual-band Wi-Fi

Expensive ; Some features require a subscription ; Doesn't support Alexa, HomeKit, or IFTTT

The Nest Cam With Floodlight is bright, delivers detailed 1080p video, and responds to Google Assistant voice commands, but it's pricey and doesn't support many third-party integrations.

Google Nest Cam (Indoor, Wired) review: The best Nest yet


Nest Cams debuted in 2015, the year after Nest bought DropCam and was then bought by Google. Since then, we've seen several smart home security camera models -- including the now discontinued Nest Cam IQ Indoor and IQ Outdoor, which pitched facial...

Nest Secure


Joining its family of indoor and outdoor security cameras, the Nest Secure ($499) is a DIY smart home security system that lets you outfit your home with multi-purpose sensors. They alert you when doors and windows are opened and closed and when motion...

Stylish. Easy to install. Multi-purpose sensors. Works with Nest cameras and a handful of third-party devices.

Expensive. Doesn't support IFTTT or trigger other devices.

The Nest Secure Alarm Starter Pack is a stylish DIY smart home security solution that's easy to install and configure, but is very expensive, and lacks integration you get with some other systems.

Google's New Indoor Nest Cam Is a Stylish Upgrade With an Annoying App


This transition from the Nest app to the Google Home will be hard for those with old Nest cameras in their home.

Easy to use, on-device facial recognition, design fits seamlessly into a home

New design makes it harder to pivot, Nest Aware's free tier is limited, the transition to the Google Home app is rough
