Google has announced a number of new products in its Nest lineup, including wireless doorbells, Nest Cam, Nest Cam (battery), and Nest Cam with floodlights. The Nest Cam (battery) and Nest Doorbell (battery) went on sale shortly after the announcement, but Google didn’t share a clear release schedule for the other two Nest cameras. Two months after the announcement, the new wired NestCam and floodlighted NestCam are finally available for purchase.
In a recent blog post, Google announced that second-generation wired NestCam and floodlighted NestCam will be available for purchase in a variety of colorways starting today. The second generation model without floodlights is intended for indoor use and is designed to be placed on a tabletop or wall mounted. Therefore, there are also new variations with a wooden base that blends into the furniture.
The floodlighted NestCam is nothing more than a second-generation wired NestCam with lights on both sides to illuminate the surroundings. With 2,400 lumens of floodlights on either side of the camera, it’s perfect for porch or backyard. The IP65 rating of the light is IP65, but the IP54 rating of the camera is slightly inferior.
The main highlight of NestCam with floodlights is to use the intelligence on the device to detect people, pets and vehicles and turn on the lights instead of using a single motion sensor. This is primarily for areas where you want the lights to turn on automatically when someone passes by. Both cameras can store footage locally for up to an hour. This is enough for a week, according to Google.
The second generation wired NestCam will return from $ 99.99 and the floodlighted NestCam will return to $ 279.99. For more information on cameras, see previous articles.
