There are only a handful of smart gadgets that surpass the popularity of the Nest Cam. This all-knowing, all-seeing in-home camera was designed to monitor the activity inside a particular household, especially housekeepers and babysitters. Today, the usability of Nest Cam has escalated to a new horizon. The new Nest Cam is updated with IQ intelligence and is available on the market for $300. The new model features advanced video and audio sensors, and is far more advanced than its predecessors. Besides, the elegant profile of the new Nest Cam is designed to amuse every gadget freak. It features a stylish polycarbonate shell with the glossy lens, which has helped it to stand out in the competition.
The revamped Nest Cam features a 4k HDR image sensor. It also has two infrared LEDs that makes it easier to detect motions in the dark and enables night vision mode. To enhance the audio quality, the camera features a trio of the microphone. According to Nest, “These speakers wield seven times more powerful than the original Nest Cam, and a ring of light illuminates when it picks someone’s voice.” The recent model allows the user to zoom the footage up to 12 times enabling a precise vision of a crook, the objects inside your friend’s backpack, or everything captured by Nest’s cam lens.
But those are only the features of the camera. At its core, the device is capable of so much more. As mentioned by Nest, the can is programmed with the highest level of intelligence making it more than just an ordinary monitoring camera. The sensors embedded inside the camera allows it to learn what is going inside your home and how things should be.
In 2014, Google acquired Nest empowering it with the company’s advanced machine learning algorithms. The new motion sensing technology allows the camera to detect the person moving within its 130-degree field of view. Besides, it can tell the difference between your cat drinking the remaining milk and a crook stealing valuables from your closet. Few of such features were already available on the previous version of the Nest Cam with Nest Aware. But, now the device features advanced audio recognition, to discern between your cat yawning and human talking, while the facial recognition technology enables the cam to understand whether the person is a friend or foe. You can program the device to send you notifications if intruders break into your home.
According to experts at Nest, “shortly, Nest Cams will be integrated with both Google Home and Amazon Alexa, allowing the device to connect with some other smart devices.” The possibilities are endless, but we’ll have to wait and see what the next generation of Nest’s Cam will feature.
