  • Cameras are only weatherproof rated to IP54
  • No professional video monitoring options

Bottom Line

Nest has rolled out an all-new Google Nest cams lineup that includes an indoor/outdoor Nest Cam, a wired Nest Cam, and a Nest Cam with Floodlight. If you want to save some money, go with the Nest Cam, but if you want powerful, long-range night vision, try the Floodlight.
