  • SECURITY HAS NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD: The Nest Cam Outdoor is here to help set your mind at ease. Nest Cam Outdoor is beautiful, weatherproof, and it plugs into power, so you never have to worry about dead batteries. Whether you're watching for the kids to get home from school, checking to see if your package has arrived, or scaring off a potential burglar, Nest Cam Outdoor is here to help!
  • DON'T MISS A THING WITH NEST ALERTS: You can't always be watching your video feed. Nest Cam looks for motion and listens for loud sounds, like a boom or the crash from a window breaking. Then it can alert you with a photo from the event, and even save some pictures in the Nest app for three hours.
  • BE HEARD WITH NEST: Nest Cam Outdoor has a built-in speaker and mic so you can scare off a suspicious visitor when you're out, or let the delivery man know to leave the package at the door.
  • WORKS WITH NEST: Nest has worked hard to design thoughtful devices to help keep you safe and secure. Nest devices not only communicate with each other but also with the other smart devices around your home. Your Nest Secure can use your smart light bulbs to help get your attention in the event of an emergency; your smart washer and dryer can take the data from Nest and run the next load of laundry when energy demand is low. Look for the Works with Nest badge and let Nest handle the rest.
  • THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE A NEST HOME: We love home. It's the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. Some things beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things we've learned to ignore. We think these things should do more. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That's how we're creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.

10 Considerations when Choosing a Home Security System

1. Do some research. What is the installer's reputation and history? How large is the company? How many current customers? Is it local or nationwide? Is their primary business security?

2. How "new" is the home security product? Today's home security systems are far more superior than those available in past years.

3. Does the home security company offer monitoring? A reputable home security company should provide its own central station monitoring instead of having another company monitor for them.

4. Does the home security company have redundant monitoring facilities? Make sure they have backup monitoring centers throughout the country in case of natural or manmade disaster.

5. Does the home security company's monitoring facility have back-up power? Find out if the monitoring facility has gas or electric-powered generators - as well as battery back-up to ensure that monitoring continues despite power failures.

6. Spend time thinking about the "amount" of security you need. The basic elements of a standard system include a key pad, a control panel, a siren, an inside motion detector, at least two door contacts, as well as connection to a central monitoring station for around the clock coverage. I'd recommend cameras too.

7. Secure your home from "hidden" household dangers. Equip your home with effective smoke, fire, carbon monoxide and flood detection systems.

8. Ease-of-use and convenience to ensure a high level of usage. Be sure to choose something that can be armed and disarmed easily by all family members.

9. Make sure the system you install has a battery back-up. If the power goes out, you want the monitoring and protection continuous.

1. What other benefits does the company offer?

# A money-back service guarantee?

# Guarantee against theft?

# A relocation package so a new security system is installed in case you move?

# Is there a Web site that provides customer service?

# Is there a website that you can access your system and control it remotely?

Be sure to spend time with your security specialist to develop a security plan and system that meets you and your family's specific needs.
