After years of offering one of the most popular indoor security cameras, Nest has introduced the Nest Cam Outdoors. This weatherproof camera has been designed for outdoors installations which means you’ll finally be able to see what’s going on at night. That’s the biggest complaint that I have with all the indoor security cameras that I’ve reviewed – you can’t point them out a window and expect to capture night vision footage. Why? It’s because the camera’s IR LEDs reflect off the window glass blocking the image through the glass. The Nest Cam Outdoors features 1080p resolution, 130° wide-angle view, 2-way audio, motion detection notifications on phone or email, and an easy install. It does require a connection to power, but it does connect wirelessly to the internet so that it can record video 24/7 to the cloud. Monthly subscriptions start at $10 a month with up to 30 days of continuous cloud recording. The new Nest Cam Outdoors is priced at $199 and is available for pre-order with shipping due this fall.
