The Nest Cam is a camera that you can use for integration into your home automation. All it requires is power and the app on your phone. The app connects to your Nest Cam specific which can then securely stream footage to your phone in full 1080p HD. It provides a wide angle to see the entire room and because of the HD quality you are able to zoom in for a closer look. Built in motion sensors sends alerts to your phone when you are away and the night vision option lets you keep an eye on your house in the dark. It has a two way communication system so you can hear all the rumours when the girls get together or tell the dog to stay off the couch.
