Nest Cam IQ update includes full-duplex audio, improved person alerts, and image rotation

The Nest Cam IQ already has a lot of smarts built-in, but it's getting even smarter with a new update. There are some changes to video and person detection, but probably the most important new feature is full-duplex audio. No more walkie-talkie-style conversations with people on the other end of the video feed.

Nest Secure is a modular home security system, $499 starter pack available for pre-order now

Nest's cameras are a reasonably good solution for keeping your home secure, but they lack many of the features you'd expect from a traditional home security system. Nest is filling in those gaps with the new Nest Secure, a modular security system that connects to smart home products from Nest and other makers. It won't be cheap, though.

Nest Cam IQ will get Google Assistant this winter

Last year, Nest released the Cam IQ, a 4K indoor security camera. The $300 price tag made it a tough sell for most people, even with facial detection and other advanced features, but at least it will become more useful soon.

Nest sends out invitations to "big announcement" on September 20

Nest Labs, the home automation company behind the well-known smart thermostat, smoke detector, and other smart products, has just sent out press invitations to a "big announcement" on September 20 in San Francisco. This comes after just having announced the Thermostat E earlier today, which boasts a lower price tag and cleaner design.
