Is not reliable in detecting motion.

published

I have had two Nest Outdoor cameras for 3 years now with Nest Aware paid suscriptions.
At least a few times a week they fail to detect motion in defined zones.... overall that is probably 5~10% of the time. I have raised support cases (with video evidence) but they go nowhere. (reset etc...- same result). Passing clouds also set off movement alerts So the algorithm is not up to the task.
Not great, probably not worth the money.

Purchased in December 2019.

Just Terrible value and quality

published

Purchased 4 outdoor cameras, 3 were in a protected area and 1 was in the weather.
These were all professionally installed by a certified electrical contractor.
After 16 months all 4 had failed, moisture ingress or other electrical failure not covered by warranty.
These products are extremely poor value for money.
Night vision is average at best, and the cloud storage is also poor value.
I would give it 1 star out of 5, ONLY because the UI is reasonable and has some good features.
I would never purchase Nest products again.

Purchased at Kogan.com for $385.00.

I am signed out every few hours. 0 point in having a camera to alert your phone, if your logged out it cant.

published

We had Nest for 2 years and it was grand. Google acquired and ruined Nest, using Google you will be signed out every 24-48 hours. Thats what they say, i am signed out every few hours. 0 point in having a camera to alert your phone, if your logged out all the time. Im wondering if we can get a refund as they are not longer fit for purpose.

Useless piece of kit after three months

published

Only current view available after three months, a few hours of footage would be good be not good given how much it cost. Just looking for a subscription service, rather than offering good value for money

Purchased in August 2019 at Amazon for $329.00.

Rubbish. Simple as that. Support is none existent. They are a con. Beware

published

The cameras are constantly dropping out. Now 3 out of 4 are faulty. Support and Warranty claim is impossible. Who did you ring. I have spent days trying to fix this issue

***Do Not Buy This Camera*** - You don't own it

published

In a move which has outraged customers like me, Google/Nest has recently removed functionality from this device. It shows that Google/Nest considers this device to be theirs, and that they can unilaterally make changes to your device without your permission.

Pricey, not reliable.

published

Have had these cameras for some time, nearly a year. Most of the time they pick up movement, but some of the time they do not. I have established this fact with screen snaps and so on.... and reported to Nest who really don't seem interested (and it is really hard work establishing a missed detection). There is clearly something wrong with the firmware or software. I doubt I will buy any more, but I really do want another camera.... so now I am stuck with half a system.

Great reliable Outdoor cameras

published

Cameras are great have 2 of the Outdoor models as well as 2 of the Nest Battery Protect units. Everything works well I get notifications on my Apple Watch, IPad and IPhone practically straight away. I live in a country lane so there is not a lot of motion detected. When a person is detected it’s usually a postie or a meter reader and it’s great for peace of mind when away from home.

Pros
Night vision is great
Ease of setup and install
Monthly subscription fees are reasonable
Nest app makes it easy to use and review camera timelines

Cons
Needs the NBN due to continually uploading so make sure you have an unlimited plan
Power cable plug could be a bit smaller
