How many multi-billion dollar companies does it take to make a great connected indoor camera? 2.5. Nest Labs bought Dropcam and Google bought Nest Labs. Now we have a slightly sleeker more refined and upgraded version of Dropcam in the new Nest Cam. With a bump up to 1080p video, improved night vision and a magnetic stand, the specs have definitely improved. The camera is available today for $199 but you may also want to check out the Nest Aware with video history for 10 day or 30 day history for $10 or $30 a month. It of course integrates with the entire family of nest products which now includes Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, and the Nest App 5.0.
