Google Nest Cam Outdoor 1080p Wi-Fi Network Surveillance Cameras (2-Pack)
I bought this camera after trying others and the BB salesman suggested it for my needs. I needed to watch my vehicle at night in low/no light area. He said night vision up to 45 feet. It's the best I've seen. Linked up to my android and PC. Free nest upgraded service for one month included. I tried Motorola and Logitech Circle 2, neither work as well as this camera. Worth the investment.
Quality is good. Sensor detects movement even at a distance. Only frustration was with the install to interior power. Have to drill a large hole to feed the power connection through. Ended up plugging the hole with a 1 inch dowel, notched for the cord and spackeling the interior hole. You would think the nest design team would anticipate this and make a plug for the exterior and interior holes. Also, I now have 4 cameras and think they should provide a break or bundle price for the annual nest aware fees or include 1st year free after your third camera. Expensive equipment and expensive annual fees for surveillance history.
Pros: Easy to install and set up. Image quality is very good. Multiple activities zones work very well. Good build quality. Mobile App is intuitive especially if you have Nest ecosystem (for some reasons, IOS App is snappier then the Android, and Nest owned by Google...). Cloud storage (yes, it is not free but I am willing to pay just for peace of mind especially when I am traveling).
Cons: Power wire's length is not "flexible", I have to install an additional junction box to "hide" the excess wire. The power adapter is huge (almost impossible to hide it or feed it through any hole). Additional fee for cloud storage.
Give it a try, you'll love it. This is my 4th Nest Cam.

Much better than Arlo
Wired up seems to be much better than the ARLO system. No glitches and seems to run much smoother. Nightvision is leaps and bounds better than ARLO. No issues with camera signal strength like the ARLO. Only reason this isn't 5 Stars for me is lack of solar power hook up. Having it outside and not wanting to drill through something would be big plus to hook up to a solar panel for power.

Smile At The Camera Dummy!
So there is nothing better than knowing I can watch my home at any point during the day from any location in the world. The video quality and wide angle allows for a wonderful full image. For me, I hard wired the system straight into my garage power. No need to plug into an outlet right near the camera. Anyone trying to snip the wire is already caught.

Monitoring the outside of your house makes a lot of sense – especially if there's been a spate of break-ins in your area. The difficulty is that outdoor cameras have traditionally been a bit of a pain to set up and configure. The Nest Cam OutdoorFull Review
Streaming security cameras are probably the most popular gadget in the connected home, and Nest the best known today. After a fairly slow start after its Dropcam acquisition in 2014, Nest finally has an outdoor model, the unimaginatively titledFull Review

So the nest outdoor camera is powered by plugging into an outlet. It comes with a basic cord where you plug one end into the camera, and plug the other end into an outlet. Thankfully, it also comes with an extension cord that increases the length of the wire if your outlet is far away. It also comes with wall clips so that your wire does not hang loosely. There is nothing else needed to wire it in. All you need is an outlet, the wire, the wall clips, an IOS or android device, and a good internet connection. Let me know if this helped!
A:Answer That is correct, they can be unplugged. We drilled a two holes into our garage, one for the front of the garage and one for the front entry of the house, ran the cords into the garage to plug them in on the inside, then sealed the holes around the cord.
A:Answer I have several Nest Outdoor cameras. They are excellent, however, I don't believe that it will detect very small objects like a golf ball. My cameras detect small animals like skunks, cats and so on, but I don't think it would catch something that small. But you have to remember that the camera is always on and you can search the archive video to see if you see anything. I rolled a golf ball for you on my back patio to see if it will detect it. The camera did not notify me of any movement, but I was still able to see it on the playback. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
A:Answer It depends on your internet speed coming to the house, the router you have, and how strong the signal is to the cameras. If you have an N-Router, probably 1 or 2 at most if currently you have less than 6 devices on the router. If you have an AC1900 Router, you could probably connect up to 10 Cameras. If you have a weak signal to where the cameras are going to be, you are going to have a hard to loading the camera, and when it detects motion, it's going to take longer to notify you, and longer for it to actually start recording. It might record in 720 or lower video quality if it's a slow connection. I would download a speedtest app on your phone. Go by the place where you would want to install the camera, and run a speed test, you should have atleast 10 - 20Mbps download, and a minimum of 2Mbps upload. (Ideally 10Mbps, but the higher than upload, the better).
A:Answer I have two of these at home and one at my shop. As long as you do the setup under the same nest account you will see all three cameras on the nest app simultaneously. The wifi network doesn't matter. It's awesome I love it.
