Remember Dropcam? They used to make some of the world’s most advanced home monitoring cameras until they were purchased by Nest (and ultimately Google who owns Nest) last year. Now Nest has shown off their first home monitoring camera built on Dropcam’s technology. Meet the Nest Cam, the ultimate home security camera which also happens to look a whole lot like the Dropcam Pro.
Looks can be deceiving, however. There’s actually a whole lot that Nest has changed and improved over the last generation Dropcam Pro. For one, it now features full glorious 1080p video, a built-in tripod mount, a magnetic base for easy mounting, 8 built-in infrared LEDs for night vision, and cloud-based storage. What’s more, if you’re an existing Dropcam owner you can actually mix and add a Nest Cam to your current setup and all of your devices will play nicely together. Isn’t that just sweet? All of that and more can be yours for just $199. Shipping begins next week.
