In many ways, Nest Cam Outdoor is identical to the originalNest Cam (itself essentially a rebranded Dropcam). That’s good! It’s among the more capable home security cameras, with 1080p video quality, 130-degree wide-angle lens, and a two-way speaker so you can chat with interlopers. It’s got a night-vision mode powered by eight infrared LEDs. At $200, it even costs the same as its indoor counterpart.
The big difference is, of course, you can use Nest Cam Outdoor outdoors. The weatherproof case and 10-foot cable lets you wire it up outside, even if 10 feet does sound really short. The included AC adapter provides another 15 feet, which, come to think of it, 25 feet is still a little short. Still, a wired outdoor security camera arguably makes more sense than a battery-powered version, given that you’ll want as many assurances as possible that it’s actually working.
