The Nest Cam records in 1080p and can record up to one hour of footage if the users power or internet goes out. This camera only comes in one color and one would need to use it wireless outdoors. Meanwhile, Google will sell 5m and 10m weather-proof cables if a user want to use it in a wired mode outside.
Nest Cam with floodlights
The Nest Cam comes with floodlights attached and only works in a wired mode. If the camera spots a person or vehicle, the lights will turn on. If it sees a raccoon go by, the lights will stay off.
This camera would also require some degree of professional installation.
