In June 2014 that Nest will use a home network camera "DropcamFor $ 550 million (about 55 billion yen).

Meanwhile, Droid Life has released a leak image of Nest Cam.

This is already sold Dropcam.

On the other hand, this is the image that will be Nest Cam. It is almost the same design as Dropcam.

Although it is slimmer than Dropcam, the style which can be easily attached anywhere with a sucker on the bottom is the same. However, if you look closely at this spill image, there is no guarantee that the outflow image is genuine, as the same background as the product image of Dropcam is used.

It seems that you can control Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect, Dropcam as well as Nest Cam with one application. In other words, this application is a home application which becomes a "hub" that can operate Nest products collectively.
