Swaddle master. Band-aid supplier. Bear hug pro. Keeping your kids safe and happy is your number one priority and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Good news: Nest shares your vision. Their three state-of-the-art products–Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Protect and Nest Cam–are all about making your family’s home a safe and enjoyable place. Read on to get the scoop on Nest and how their devices are making parenting easier.

Nest Cam

You cherish quality time with your family, but as a busy parent, it’s impossible to be with them 24/7. When you’re away from home and wonder “Did I remember to put the leftovers away?”, “Is the baby awake?”, “What’s the dog getting into?”. Nest Cam is the reliable and easy way to know what’s happening at home, no matter where you are.

How It Works
Once you’ve installed the Nest Cam, download the Nest app and you’ll be able to see a live video on your phone within minutes. The live video feed is always in high-definition with the ability to zoom in and a 130 degree angle of whichever room your Cam is located in. Since you won’t always be looking at your video feed, Nest Cam listens for sound and detects motion and can send you alerts on your phone when something happens. But, Nest Cam just doesn’t stop at high-def visuals; the device also features a mic and speaker, meaning you can hear what’s going on and talk back using the Nest app.

Parent Perks
The Nest Cam is much more than a way to check out what's going on at home when you're away. Its Nest Aware subscription service allows you to continuously record up to 30 days of video and save clips to share with your friends and family. So if you’re away on a business trip or get held up at a parent-teacher conference, you’ll still be able to relish and share in those special family moments. The Nest Aware and Video History service subscriptions start at just $10/month for 10 days of history.

New & Noteworthy
The new Nest Cam stand is easy to mount and is versatile enough to allow you to place the camera in places previously inaccessible. The Cam also includes a night vision LED sensors so you’ll be able to see the room in pitch black darkness.
