Nest’s Security Cam Completes Your Smart Home Ecosystem

Dropcam’s back-end service for watching and storing your camera’s video is being replaced by Nest Aware (which WIRED was first to notice in the details of yet another early listing), a new paid service that lets you see what’s been going on in your house. You can save up to 30 days of video, and quickly save or share clips. (Just don’t share the creepy ones, please.) The app can also algorithmically figure out which clips you’ll want to see, and show those first—it’s basically what you would expect from the combination of Dropcam and Google. It’ll start at $10 a month for your first camera.

The new device comes alongside significant updates to Nest’s other products. The Nest Thermostat is smarter than ever, and safer too: It can get alerts from the Protect smoke detector when there’s a fire, and shut off its fans to avoid fueling the flames.
