Meet Nest Cam Outdoor. It stands watch 24/7, rain or shine. Plugs into power so you never have to worry about dead batteries. And sends an alert to your phone when it detects activity. It even lets you talk back through the Nest app. This is what an outdoor security camera should be.
Well made. Nice looking. But not practical. There is a large round piece in the middle of the wiring that is hard to hide. The camera is nice. The concept is nice. But to just plug it outdoors and leave it there for someone to unplug it and walk away with it is silly. The large round piece in the middle of the wire connections also means it's impossible to hide the wires along a trim or door edge or put inside a conduit. I returned mine after not being able to install it in a semi-decent looking way. It's an eye sore.
