The Google-owned Nest has launched a camera that senses movement in a user’s home and alerts them via a smartphone app. The camera will have a night vision mode and customers will be able to pay for their videos to be archived for up to 30 days.
The camera is built upon the foundations of earlier Dropcam designs. It will be capable of streaming video live and customers will be able to pay subscription fees of £8 and £24 per month to keep the video for 10 and 30 days, respectively. The Nest Cam, will capture in high definition 1080p and will be available from the beginning of July in the UK, Republic of Ireland, France, Netherlands and Belgium.
Nest Protect Updated:
The existing Nest Protect product, which comprises a smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detector, has been updated and will alert the user if it senses danger, the firm said. The Learning Thermostat, for which Nest is perhaps best known, will also issue alerts if temperatures drop to dangerous levels. If Nest Protect detects smoke, it will also communicate with the thermostat, as well as its owner, he added.
Each of the products will be integrated with the firm’s 5.0 smartphone app.
Nest was set up by two former Apple executives: Mr Fadell, who is known as the “father of the iPod”, and Matt Rogers. It was bought by Google for $3.2bn (£2bn) in January 2014. Announcing the acquisition, Google said that Nest would maintain its own distinct identity under Mr Fadell’s continued stewardship.
