Google Nest Cam (battery life) Wireless Camera Review

Updated by Alexia on

The Google Nest Cam is now one of the best home wireless security cameras you can get. Its AI smarts are unrivaled and its battery life is great.

The newest addition to Google Nest looks like a bigger, beefier version of the Nest IQ. Both have 1080p video quality, 130° field of view, and two-way audio. But the Nest Cam works indoors and outdoors and comes with smart features right out of the box, no subscription needed. And, compared to the price point of the Nest IQ, it's cheaper too.
