What customers say about "Key Specs"
Nest Cam Security Camera
  • The resolution is excellent and the motion/sound alerts are wonderful.
  • You will obviously lose some resolution, but we have found it to be quite acceptable still.
  • The phone application required a little figuring out to get things correct. The camera is dependent on your internet connection so if it's fast it will work better. The focal length is about one average size room.
  • This camera has a great picture and is very quick and easy to set up. I like that I can see the video on any device just by logging into my Nest account. It has a wide field of view that allows me to see the entire room.
  • I can no longer get good resolution when I zoom ... it simply hyper zooms beyond the point I've established, and all I see is pixelation.
Canary View Indoor 1080p HD Security Camera
  • I really like this portable camera. It's easy and quick to setup and it has great resolution. Perfect for dorm rooms, or just a single room or area you want to have surveillance on.
  • Great zoom resolution. Built in siren and a free 24hr cloud storage.
  • I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a clear high resolution view. It hits the whole room and I can play back, record, and even talk through the camera !
  • This is a great tool - it's a simple, foolproof surveillance camera that is easy to set up with your home Wi-Fi and works as advertised.
  • The camera’s resolution is a much higher quality than I expected, and the night vision is very clear as well.

What customers say about "Features"
Nest Cam Security Camera
  • I can't say enough good things about the new app. The feature to scrub through a timeline to quickly see activities is perfect.
  • The "alert" system is oddly conceived. You only get alerts every 30 minutes. So, since we use the unit as a baby monitor, we have to constantly keep an eye on it. It won't alert you again until you enter into a new 30 minute window.
  • Another good feature is that Nest e-mails you every time there is a break in Wi-Fi service. The Nest camera system would be a great security camera system but it is also ideal to help and keep track of elderly parents.
  • The motion alert feature is great for when you are away, but I wish Nest would concede some short amount of video history for casual users.
  • The only issue I have is with the storage side. I have no problems with paying or anything like that or even the tiers. The issue is for goodness sakes why is it not available for us in more countries - sort this out as to me its the most limiting problem.
Canary View Indoor 1080p HD Security Camera
  • I love my Canary it dose everything I wanted the camera is extremely clear the iCloud works good and the motion detection is almost to sensitive
  • Once I set it up it went very well and very easy with great notifications for iPhone and android but if you have pets the settings set it off all the time
  • This camera has an impressive viewing lens and the app is great. It's a little large and a bit clunky, but it looks great and has a lot of features.
  • The device was easy to install, features include free video recording, motion detection, temperature and air quality sensors and view video live about 10 second lag(records to the cloud).
  • Packed with great harewares but too little features
