Google's line of Nest cameras have always offered impressive hardware, but they're expensive and the current lineup is getting a bit long in the tooth. Enter, the new Nest Cam, which features a battery so you can mount it anyplace, even if that location is far away from power. If you're looking for long battery life, this camera has it. The rest of it, not so much.
If you were hoping to pick up one of the new Nest Doorbells and wire it in for continuous recording, Google tells us that won't be an option. Even though the new battery-powered Nest Doorbell can be plugged in permanently, so you don't have to recharge it, it still won't support continuous 24/7 video recording, even though the new battery-powered Nest Cam will.
After announcing a bumper crop of smart security hardware earlier this month, Google appears ready to begin delivering its new battery-powered Nest smart home devices to the masses. Google Store shoppers can now cart both items and get actual ship dates.
A smart doorbell camera can make keeping an eye on your home much easier, whether receiving a package from UPS or weeding out "guests" trying to sell you their services. While big players like Google Nest and Ring have some of the most advanced doorbells on the market, their price tags are enough to make your wallet quiver in fear. Thankfully, Eufy's battery-powered video doorbell camera won't break the bank, and you can pick one up for a mere $80 on Amazon today — no subscription needed.
It's more important than ever to keep your home safe and secure, especially when you're away at work. While it can be expensive to invest in a full monitoring system, thankfully there are plenty of outdoor cameras that will help look after your home 24/7 without breaking the bank. Anker's eufyCam 2 is a solid option for an affordable security camera, and for today only, you can save up to 25% on its security system as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day.

It was only last week that Google announced a refreshed Nest security camera lineup in the US, and we’re already seeing signs of at least one of those cameras making it to India. A Google Store listing of the new battery-powered Nest Cam gives away this detail along with an indication that the Nest Aware subscription service could also land in India alongside the camera.
According to a support page (spotted by AP alum/Ars Technica editor Ron Amadeo), Google will replace the new battery-powered Nest Cam and the newer and older Nest Doorbells if they are stolen. Google reserves the right to say "no" if things seem sketchy, and you have a few hoops to jump through, but it should make sure you aren't out $180 if someone absconds with your new camera or doorbell.
Google has just unveiled a whole new generation of Nest Cams for nearly every room in your home, with a series of hardware and software improvements. Chief among these are three enhancements that make these cams usable without the Aware subscription.
Though the company leaked it a bit early, the new Nest lineup of smart security cameras is now official and covers a wide spread of options, from new battery-powered cameras to the cheapest Nest Cam yet, and even a brand new floodlight. Price range from $280 down to $99. Availability for the four new models varies, with pre-orders for the new $180 battery-powered Nest Cam and $280 Nest Doorbell starting today. And if you're cheap (like me), Google's also expanding what you can do without a Nest Aware subscription.
If you're away on a much-needed vacation, being able to check on your property is essential. Whether you're ensuring Amazon successfully delivered your package or just keeping an eye on your pets, security cameras are a great tool to have. With today's deals on eufyCams at Amazon, you can check in on your home from anywhere in the world without having to pay for a monthly subscription.
