I have reviewed several security cameras in the past but this is my first review of a NEST product. The product I will be reviewing is the Nest Outdoor Camera.
The packaging is very neat and has the product image on it. On the side, you can read the specifications of the product, as well as what comes inside the box. The box holds the Nest outdoor camera, power adapter, mounting magnet, wall plate, screws, anchors, and clips.
Setting up the camera is a quick and painless process if you follow the instructions on the guide.
To use any Nest product you need to have the Nest app installed on your phone. After providing the necessary information you can go ahead and add your product to the app. This is a very easy process and all you have to do is scan the QR code that is on the camera.
Once you add the camera you can view the video on your app, laptop or any other device which has the app installed. The video is crystal clear and very detailed. Video quality can be set to auto or whatever you wish. You can skip forwards or backward 15 seconds at a time. You also have a night vision feature and can share a video recording straight off the app.
The app provides you with an audio feature. Here, you can turn the microphone on or off, to capture sound. You can also change the sensitivity of the microphone as per your liking.
The main screen of the app has a number of really cool settings. One of the most interesting features of the Nest outdoor camera, one that I particularly liked is that you can turn the status light on or off. Turning it off can make it less obvious that there is a camera recording.
As most of you know, I like to give all the products that I review a rating. So, was this good? bad? or ugly? It was good, real good! My rating for the Nest Outdoor Camera is a solid 8. It has all the features that you would want for a camera and certainly lives up to its expectation. If you need to beef up the security in your home and you are looking for an outdoor camera then I would definitely recommend this. You can purchase the camera here.
