Nest Labs, Inc. today announced that Nest Cam is now available to purchase in the Republic of Ireland, the UK, Netherlands, Belgium and France.

From the creators of the Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect, the new Nest Cam brings home video-monitoring to the masses with some nice features available for a monthly subscription package such as been able to view video history from the cam.

With live video streaming to a phone or computer, Nest Cam gives users some peace of mind and the ability to keep tabs on what’s going on at home. The all-new Nest Cam builds on the Dropcam features customers love, adding better video quality and a new design to make it even easier to keep an eye on your home.

Here are the official features along with availability and pricing from today’s press release:

Features include:

  • Versatile design – The new stand’s magnetic base can stick to metal, be mounted to the wall or screwed onto a universal tripod. It can twist around, bend at an angle, or be mounted upside down. The stand incorporates a rare-earth magnet and ¼ inch, 20-screw mount, so you can securely place it in even more locations. Its body design provides three degrees of freedom so customers can capture the view they want.
  • Video quality – Nest Cam delivers crisp 1080p HD over Wi-Fi so customers can see the finest details across the room.
  • Secure streaming – Stream and store video content with a unique 2048-bit RSA key and securely transmit using a 128-bit SSL connection.
  • Improved Night Vision – Eight high-powered infrared LEDs and new algorithms improve Night Vision and motion detection. Other home cameras give you a spotlight view at night, but Nest Cam lets you see the entire room. And because Nest Cam’s sensors know the difference between a flashlight and sunlight, Night Vision won’t get confused and switch to day mode every time a bright light passes in front of the camera. That can be hugely helpful if an intruder turns on a flashlight, or if headlights flash across your window.

Starting at €10 a month, Nest Aware helps you see more and do more with Nest Cam. And customers who purchase and install a Nest Cam before 4th of August 2015 will receive an additional 30 days free trial of Nest Aware, totalling 60 days trial, gaining access to:

  • Nest Aware with Video History – Customers can subscribe for an additional monthly fee to gain access to:
  • Video History – Scroll through 10 or 30 days of content depending on your subscription choice so you have extra time to see what happened and save the stuff you want to remember.
  • Alert Summary – If something happens, you don’t have to dig through hours of video to find it. Nest Aware with Video History highlights the moments when there is motion or sound and shows you what happened.
  • Clips & Timelapses – Make, save and share up to three hours of clips.
  • Activity Zones – Create custom Activity Zones around areas of interest – such as a door – so you can be alerted of any activity in a specific area.
  • Advanced motion sensing – Nest Cam uses the power of the cloud to provide more accurate alerts and detect areas where common false alarms occur, like ceilings.

 Availability and Pricing

  • Nest Cam will be available to purchase from today from Nest.com/ie and Harvey Norman with a suggested retail price of €199 including VAT.
  • Nest Aware with Video History can be purchased as a 10-day or 30-day subscription for €10 and €30 per month, respectively.
