Google Nest releases its new indoor Nest Cam and floodlight camera

From The Verge: Following its announcement of an all-new Nest Cam lineup this summer, Google has made the last of the four cameras it announced available in its Google Store: The Google Nest Cam wired ($99.99) and the Google Nest Cam with floodlight ($279.99). The cameras join the new Nest Cam battery, an indoor-outdoor camera, and the Nest Doorbell battery that went on sale in August.

The Nest Cam wired is the budget camera in the lineup and is much smaller than the indoor/outdoor Nest Cam, which can be wired or work off its built-in battery. The indoor model dispenses with a built-in battery and isn’t weatherproofed, helping make it cheaper and smaller. It keeps the same 16:9 aspect ratio, with 1080p video at up to 30fps, plus it has a 135-degree field of view and 6x digital zoom.

One unique feature about the Nest Cam wired is that it comes in four colors — white, pink, beige, or green — a first in the smart home security camera space. There’s also a wooden base available for the pink (sorry, Sand) version of the camera for a further aesthetic flourish and a price hike to $119.99. Interestingly, Google is keeping the original black indoor Nest Cam around for $129.99.
