What are some of the uses of this camera?
Besides being used for home security, the Nest camera also has a multitude of other uses. The camera allows for two way communication so you can record/listen to audio from the camera, as well as speak remotely through the camera. This is ideal if you want to use it as a baby monitor or as a monitor for kids and elderly relatives. The Nest Cam comes with a magnetic stand, this works on all types of surfaces. Screw it into the wall, stick it to something metallic, set it down on something flat or attach it to a standard tripod or mount.

How easy is the camera to set up?
The Nest camera is quick and easy to set up. Simply plug in the power cable, download the app and set it up from your Android or iOS device. The Nest camera is supplied with a magnetic stand that will work in all kinds of homes and surfaces. Supplied with everything you need to fix to a wall you can place the camera exactly where you need to see everything. Nest Cam uses bank-level security with 128-bit SSL encryption, Perfect Forward Secrecy and a unique 2048-bit RSA key to ensure all data is safe and secure

What advantage do I have of buying the extra Nest items?
All the Nest items are interlinkable with each other. This means you can keep you home safer and even more secure. Link the Nest Protect with the Nest Thermostat so when the alarm detects the CO levels rising it automatically shuts off the heating to keep you safe. Link up with the Nest Cam and when the alarm detects smoke it the camera starts to record so you can go back and see what happened.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work fully without ongoing subscription Beware - this is a lovely quality camera and when you first get it, it works great. However as soon as the free trial ends you find the important functions stop working unless you pay a £8/month subscription, that is over £100/year for features it lists on the box! You loose the ability to select an alert zone so the camera picks up changes in brightness, such as clouds over the sun as an alert. Worse still you only get a live feed, so cannot see what triggered the alert. Returning and going back to my CCTV, at least its free to operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, fun camera I own a couple of these, and while there is a monthly cost (because your video is being stored on their servers), it is well worth the peace of mind. There is a phone app, it has a microphone and speaker so you can interact with people (or pets!) who are near the camera. Also be mindful that it will eat up lots of data so you will need a fairly unlimited data plan! But fabulous product for home security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic security camera Nest Cam is very easy to install. The app is also extremely fast to lead a video feed and you get a picture of what was detected in the notification and by email. For free. I paid the subscription (£80/year) because I wanted 24/7 continuous recording (got fooled in the past by cameras that were meant to record when detecting something and ended up losing the important action!), cloud storage, and what they call "person alerts".

Is there a minimum uplink speed/performance of internet connection required or other internet connection reqs (eg jitter)? I have BT Infinity so supposedly a very fast and stable connection but I have had problems with similar products previously.

Asked by: Mark
Hi Mark, Good question. Yes, there are some minimum requirements you should have for a stable and clear picture. For a 1080p (The highest Nest Cam can achieve) video stream to be stable, you should have at least 1.2Mbps upload speed and a good signal to the router from where you place your Nest Cam. Hope this helps!

Hi. Your answer to 'Do I need to plug this into a computer' doesn't help. Presumably, as it has a usb not a network cable, it does require a device. If so, it is very limiting. Please confirm one way or the other.

Asked by: crocky
Hi Crocky, Nest Cam can be set up using a computer via USB, or with a mobile device via WiFi. The USB is only actually required for power reasons. Hope this helps. Team Nest UK

Would the camera be able to be position on a window ledge inside a house and look through window to record car arriving into driveway.

Asked by: susan47
Hi Darren, This is technically possible (I do it myself until Nest Cam Outdoor launches here). Please be aware that at night the IR light will reflect off the window and the image won't be great. If the street it well lit naturally with street lights though, it's still very effective with the Night Vision turned off. Team Nest UK

Hi. Do you have to subscribe for the ap or how does it operate.   Thanks.  

Asked by: Noel 24
Hi Noel, The Nest App itself is completely free to download and use. You can view your Nest Cam live via the app for free at any time. If you require video recording / storage, whether it be for 10 days of history or 30, then there will be a subscription required. We have a lot of different pricing structures and plans available as you will see from this link: Hope this helps! Team Nest UK
