Pro High quality video, even in pitch black
The 1080p resolution allows plenty of detail to be captured, and because it's a wide-angle lens you'll get a wide 130 degree picture. If you need to, you can zoom up to 8X to investigate small details.
The night vision feature works surprisingly well in low light, or even pitch black. There are 8 LEDs surrounding the lens which can illuminate the scene.
Pro Easy setup process
To get this camera running, you just need to download Nest's app into your smartphone or tablet, select the camera model and scan the QR code that's printed on its side. Everything else is taken care of automatically.
Pro Two-way audio communication
This camera has a built-in speaker and microphone, allowing for audio surveillance and two-way communication.
Con No native support for Homekit
Nest cameras don't have native support for Homekit. However, you can work around this limitation by running a server on your Mac. You can see a guide on how to do this here.
