The Nest Cam Outdoor Knows What’s A Threat And What’s A Pet

There are plenty of ways to safeguard the homestead. There are the alarms that go off at the wrong time; the indoor security cameras that give you a cinematic view of the guys robbing your smart home; the tiger pit that your wife says isn’t safe for the baby, despite all the signs you put up around it. But there’s no better deterrent than having a pair of eyes outside the house. Especially if those eyes can also talk — like the Nest Cam Outdoor.

The newest Nest Cam is an always-on “smart” camera that continuously records/live streams a 130-degree view outside your door, and saves it on the cloud for up to 10 days. The big feature is that Nest can purportedly identify the difference between people and ghosts — or at least motion not caused by people— and sends alerts when it detects suspicious activity. You can then jump on your smartphone to see who is loitering on the porch and use the 2-way intercom to ask them to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to their place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension.

Nest Cam Outdoor

Here’s a quick rundown of the features: Of course the Nest Cam is weatherproof and has infrared night vision, because the world gets dark and stormy sometimes. It’s easy to install — just mount on the wall and plug it into an outlet, no batteries required. It offers shared streams so your buddy can housesit from their own house. And it can replay all that footage in case the detectives from Law & Order want to stand over your shoulder and say, “Enhance!”) Sign up for the $10 a month Nest Aware and receive more video features like condensing a day into a time-lapse or create specific “activity zones.” Oh, it’s just the kids on the trampoline in the middle of the night. Nothing to worry about.
