Looking into Nest’s Security Products. Keep Your Home Safe
It feels safe to know that you can actually see what’s happening inside your home at any given time. Nest Cam indoor and outdoor cameras coupled with home automation are your best bet when it comes to scaring criminals in their tracks.
After detecting a motion or sound, the cams send alerts. Besides, the indoor camera has a night vision which illuminates the entire scene when it’s dark. The outdoor camera is weatherproof, so it stands harsh outdoor conditions.
You can check on the kids, pets and even contact them remotely using the cams. The cams feature built-in speakers and microphones so you can hear and talk to the kiddos or pets right from the Nest App installed on your smartphone. Each of the cameras has a high resolution (1080p) for the bright images and videos.
Nest Protect Smoke + CO Alarm
Your home security is taken care of thanks to the Nest Protect capable of alerting you of imminent danger of fire and carbon monoxide. With its vocal alert, Nest Protect smoke and CO alarm let you pinpoint from where exactly the danger is coming.
If you happen to be away from home and Nest Protect detects a fire or CO, it’ll send an alert to your phone immediately. Burnt your food in the kitchen? Then Nest protect has an option for shutting down the alarm.
Nest Secure Alarm System
The Nest Alarm System is a comprehensive system that combines four different components – Nest Guard, Nest Tag, Nest App and the Nest Detect.
Nest Guard is a WiFi-powered alarm hub that requires you enter your security code to turn off the alarm. It also has an optional cellular backup.
