The Dropcam is dead. Viva la Nest Cam!
About a year ago, Nest (the smart thermostat folks) purchased Dropcam, the maker of our top pick for streaming nursery cams. Now Nest is rebranding Dropcam as (…wait for it) the Nest Cam. (Nest is owned by Google . . . no, you can’t escape them. Now Google is watching your nursery. What could go wrong?)
The Nest Cam is the same price as the old Dropcam Pro ($200) and is on sale as of June 19, 2015. The big differences: the cam has a new, slimmer form factor. And it comes with a magnetic base. You can still mount it on a wall via mounting hardware (included).
Here’s our review of the Nest Cam. If have one of the old Dropcams, let us know what you think about it. Any unusual uses or things you’ve captured on video?
