Google’s Nest Unveils Its First Outdoor Camera

Google’s Nest has launched its first-ever outdoor camera . It is priced at $199 and the Nest Cam Outdoor can be pre-ordered in the US from the company website. The camera is quite similar to the company’s existing indoor camera, Nest Cam, but for the weatherproof case. The camera makes use of magnets and screw mounts to attach to the wall and its concave base lets users position it in any direction. As per the company, the Nest Cam Outdoor, unlike other cameras, is always recording and uploading the video on to the cloud. In addition, it always needs to be plugged into a power source. This means that unlike some security cameras that run on battery and start capturing footage only when they sense any movement, The Nest Cam Outdoor records videos all the time. It comes with a 25-foot cable, records audio, features two-way talk and more. Like its indoor camera variants, the Nest Cam Outdoor shoots videos in full-HD resolution with a 130-degree view. It also has 8 infrared LED lights for night vision. Nest has also announced a redesigned app that will be arriving by the end of this month. The app will also bring a new feature called spaces that makes it easier for users to manage Nest products. The search giant last year unveiled its Nest Cam security camera, an updated version of Dropcam Pro. The camera too can record full-HD videos at 30 frames per second. The company also launched its smoke detector. In November last year Google’s Nest came under the spotlight as researchers claimed that the Nest Cams keep recording even when they are turned off. However, the company rubbished these claims.
