Nest Security Camera Reviews:




Cole O.


I decided to go with the Nest being that it had better and more reviews than the Canary.

Chuck B.


Very expensive subscription service and not useful without paying a separate for each camera every month.

Michael K.


Price of camera + subscription fees = too expensive.

Chris H.


Pretty great - not perfect.



Great hardware, almost useless without pricey nest aware.



It's OK, the cable ends are too large and WiFi signal is sub-par.

Donald D.


Great outdoor cam, but no replacement for a centralized DVR/NVR system.

Brett S.


Have used other brands but Nest is most reliable, clear and easy to use. Best pick for us!
