New Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera - Is It Worth $200?

Everyone went crazy over this Nest Smart Thermostats recently - but have you heard that they have come out with the new Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera? It is currently on sale at Amazon Canada for $199.97 including shipping and handling down from $249 - but is it worth it to you?

So the Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera is currently on for quite a discount and people are going crazy over this thing. Set it up anywhere you like in your home, and you'll have 24/7 live video streaming so you can see your home on your phone in 1080p HD. You can control the Nest Cam from anywhere as long as your phone is nearby.

With the Nest Cam you can watch, talk and listen. I would use it to tell my dogs to get off the couch, or to tell the kids to leave the pop in the fridge alone. Even during the night, this camera will come through. It is equipped with night vision and will even send alerts to your phone when the motion sensor picks anything up.

The catch? You will also need a monthly subscription (yes it costs more money) to get the full perks of this purchase which seems kind of silly to me when the item is already $249 when not on sale (today is the best time to buy it, since it is on sale). Without the Nest Aware App, this camera will provide you with 24/7 continuous 1080 p HD streaming, motion and sound alerts, Night Vision, Talk & Listen and Clear Zoom.

With the Nest Aware App (starting at $10/month), you will get 10-day video History with 100+GB of rolling cloud storage. With the $30/month option you will get 30-day Video History and 300+GB of rolling cloud storage.

My verdict? I would buy this camera for many reasons - but I wouldn't be caught subscribing to the monthly plan as well as paying $200+ for the item. What about you?
