It started about 2 years ago with my purchase of ess cloud5 Ring. ess cloud5 It's motion ess cloud5 detection ess cloud5 was lousy. ess cloud5 A UPS guy would deliver ess cloud5 a package ess cloud5 to ess cloud5 my front door and Ring would start recording when ess cloud5 he was 4/5ths ess cloud5 down ess cloud5 my driveway. ess cloud5 This journey actually ess cloud5 seems much longer because this has been a very frustrating journey. After Ring, ess cloud5 I paused in ess cloud5 my search ess cloud5 for a better ess cloud5 video system because ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 was waiting for Ring ess cloud5 to get better. But ess cloud5 my recent search for a ess cloud5 system started about 6 months ago ess cloud5 when my neighbor across the street noticed that ess cloud5 a guy ess cloud5 was ess cloud5 lurking ess cloud5 in front of ess cloud5 my ess cloud5 house ess cloud5 and approaching my ess cloud5 front ess cloud5 door ess cloud5 and wandering ess cloud5 around ess cloud5 the side of my house into the backyard. This was at ess cloud5 11:30pm and I ess cloud5 was sound asleep in bed. ess cloud5 My neighbor called me (I ess cloud5 didn't answer ess cloud5 because I was asleep) ess cloud5 and then ess cloud5 called ess cloud5 the police. No break-in or damage but ess cloud5 it spooked me ess cloud5 enough to begin investigating a ess cloud5 video system. I ess cloud5 wasn't ess cloud5 interested in ess cloud5 ADT or CPI or any ess cloud5 of the large companies ess cloud5 that ess cloud5 were going to charge me $50/month to monitor my house 24/7. I just ess cloud5 wanted ess cloud5 to know what was happening outside of my house when either I was asleep or not at home. So I first started with Amcrest. I bought an 8-camera system that ess cloud5 needed to be wired for power and internet. My electrician told me that the way my house was built, he could ess cloud5 install cameras in the back of the house but not ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 front. The cost for wiring a system in the back and a ess cloud5 totally separate system in the front ess cloud5 was $1600 (Just ess cloud5 for the installation!). I passed ess cloud5 on that. He said I needed to look into ess cloud5 a ess cloud5 WiFi system, which then led me to ARLO ess cloud5 Pro, which has rechargeable batteries (cool) ess cloud5 that last about a month or two (depending ess cloud5 upon how often the motion detector goes off), and it was connected via WiFi. I've used ess cloud5 the ARLO system for about 3 months. The thing that I like most about ARLO is that you can position these cameras anywhere since they don't require a power ess cloud5 cord to ess cloud5 plug in and they connect to WiFi, and it was a ess cloud5 very user-friendly interface (which Amcrest ess cloud5 was not. ess cloud5 Amcrest is really for IT guys and ess cloud5 not for the lay DIY person ess cloud5 who just wants ess cloud5 the thing ess cloud5 to work). The thing that makes me crazy about the ARLO system is that the cameras ess cloud5 only turn on ess cloud5 when they detect motion and ess cloud5 by the ess cloud5 time they detect motion, the ess cloud5 activity has almost left ess cloud5 the visible screen. There were also ess cloud5 times when I would pull into the driveway, ess cloud5 walk ess cloud5 into my ess cloud5 garage and a camera that ess cloud5 is pointing AT the house would not ess cloud5 turn on. But if a leaf blew in front ess cloud5 of ess cloud5 the camera then it would turn on. There were a hundred false alarms per day as something tripped the motion sensor but when actual people (like a UPS driver) would walk up ess cloud5 my driveway, put ess cloud5 a package on the ground and walk ess cloud5 away - the motion sensor would pick him up AT the door ess cloud5 and as he was walking away. ARLO picked up ess cloud5 a LOT of false motion and failed to pick up ess cloud5 or was ess cloud5 slow on real ess cloud5 motion. That kind of stuff made me bat shit crazy. ess cloud5 I worked with ARLO's discussion ess cloud5 board ess cloud5 to try to ess cloud5 fix the issues (Ghosting; Pixilation; and slow detection times) but the product is what it is at this stage. So I went searching for a system that would give me ess cloud5 24/7 ess cloud5 video, would have high-quality cameras ess cloud5 (1080p), ess cloud5 night ess cloud5 vision, ess cloud5 audio, ess cloud5 microphone ess cloud5 and look nice. ess cloud5 I had heard ess cloud5 about ess cloud5 Nest but I also didn't ess cloud5 want to pay the ess cloud5 monthly/ yearly subscription, but ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 looking ess cloud5 into what the subscription ess cloud5 meant (what features were available) and thought ess cloud5 I'd give it ess cloud5 a try. The purchase comes with a free trial period, so ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 thought ess cloud5 maybe the ess cloud5 3rd ess cloud5 time ess cloud5 is a charm. ess cloud5 And it IS! I only ordered 1 camera because I wanted to test it out and my camera came ess cloud5 this morning. I followed the easy installation steps and got it ess cloud5 installed and ess cloud5 operational within an hour. I ess cloud5 have ess cloud5 an outdoor ess cloud5 outlet in ess cloud5 the front of my house and ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 bracketed the ess cloud5 wire ess cloud5 down the trim ess cloud5 of the house and ess cloud5 then plugged it in. (I'll get an alert ess cloud5 if it is unplugged or ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 wire is cut). At some point in time, I'll ess cloud5 have an electrician come ess cloud5 and ess cloud5 drill a hole in the exterior so the wire ess cloud5 is not exposed, but ess cloud5 I'm really happy ess cloud5 with the product as it is. I've left the ess cloud5 house several ess cloud5 times and checked my phone to see what was happening ess cloud5 while ess cloud5 I was away. The phone app is ess cloud5 easy to use, the video is really ess cloud5 24/7, the installation was easy (I ran into zero issues ess cloud5 getting up and running), and I now get alerts that ess cloud5 are meaningful. The Nest Aware actually has algorithms ess cloud5 that know when a person ess cloud5 is in ess cloud5 the frame, rather than a bird flying by. AND, I can scroll through ess cloud5 the entire ess cloud5 video of the day within minutes, AND download ess cloud5 a ess cloud5 video clip to my Photos on my phone. I'm so happy ess cloud5 with this purchase, I just ess cloud5 purchased another one that will arrive tomorrow and ess cloud5 I'll install that one as ess cloud5 well in the back. And, as I learned more about the subscription, I'm ess cloud5 Ok with the ess cloud5 cost. It's 100/year ess cloud5 for the first camera and then ess cloud5 $50/year for ess cloud5 each additional camera. ess cloud5 So for $150/year I can ess cloud5 have both ess cloud5 the front and ess cloud5 back ess cloud5 of my house monitored ess cloud5 24/7, and I have use of all ess cloud5 the advanced features that come with Nest Aware. ess cloud5 I'll still ess cloud5 use my ARLO inside ess cloud5 (they do work quite well inside), ess cloud5 but the Amcrest cameras will be donated to charity.*** See bottom of ess cloud5 review for all updates ***This is my second Nest product. I ess cloud5 have a Dropcam pro installed in the ess cloud5 house and this ess cloud5 Outdoor ess cloud5 Nest ess cloud5 Camera installed overlooking ess cloud5 my driveway, carport entrance ess cloud5 and front of house. I have a third Outdoor Nest Cam on order ess cloud5 for the back yard.I am willing to pay $99/year for the first camera and $50/yr for the second one (for 10-day recorded video). I have a third camera ess cloud5 for ess cloud5 the back ess cloud5 yard and know I ess cloud5 will pay another $50/yr for that ess cloud5 one. That works out to $200/yr for three cameras, or $0.55/day. ess cloud5 I have cut the cord on cable TV and so really this expense is not that bad. ess cloud5 The initial cost of the camera seems ess cloud5 kind of pricey, but ess cloud5 the build ess cloud5 quality ess cloud5 of this outdoor model is impressive.Many people discuss their concerns with the magnetic ess cloud5 mount and the likelihood that the camera might be stolen. ess cloud5 I have ess cloud5 no such fears. I just installed it high enough to eliminate that worry. By ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 time they get to the camera, ess cloud5 I will ess cloud5 have a good shot ess cloud5 of them anyhow. And once I inform Nest ess cloud5 of the stolen camera, it will be of absolutely ess cloud5 no use to them anyhow.Setup was super easy and ess cloud5 best done with ess cloud5 an iPhone or Android phone (as opposed to ess cloud5 a desktop ess cloud5 computer). ess cloud5 It literally ess cloud5 only took me ess cloud5 about ess cloud5 a minute ess cloud5 to get it connected to my WiFi and start streaming images.The image ess cloud5 quality (day and night) ess cloud5 is very ess cloud5 good compared to other cameras I have ess cloud5 used (see ess cloud5 examples).Because we ess cloud5 have brick walls I was ess cloud5 afraid that the ess cloud5 camera would have a hard time grabbing ess cloud5 my WiFi signal. My router ess cloud5 is on the ess cloud5 opposite side of the house. I am happy to ess cloud5 report that there ess cloud5 have been no connection issues so far - ess cloud5 and the video stream ess cloud5 is ess cloud5 solid.I had to ess cloud5 run ess cloud5 a ess cloud5 length of extension cord to ess cloud5 the camera (even though it comes with about 25 feet of cable).The main issue I have are ess cloud5 false positives on the ess cloud5 alerts. The alerts I ess cloud5 have set up send ess cloud5 me frequent false positives ess cloud5 thinking that a person ess cloud5 is in view of ess cloud5 the camera. Flashes of light or moving shadows also ess cloud5 cause many false positives. I am still working on ess cloud5 my settings ess cloud5 to find the perfect ess cloud5 balance.So far the camera ess cloud5 does ess cloud5 what it is supposed to. And it is ess cloud5 great ess cloud5 being able to capture video clips and share ess cloud5 them. We will see how this ess cloud5 camera survives the winter, ess cloud5 summer and elements in general. But ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 am impressed so far and I know ess cloud5 Nest will always be improving their detection algorithms - they have a way ess cloud5 to go on that score.FIRST UPDATE: Well I have had ess cloud5 all three cameras running (two ess cloud5 Outdoor models and one Dropcam for inside) for several months. I ess cloud5 am pleased to ess cloud5 report ess cloud5 that everything is running fine. I ess cloud5 especially like the phone ess cloud5 app ess cloud5 (I ess cloud5 use an iPhone 5s) ess cloud5 and it ess cloud5 works great ess cloud5 and is very useful. ess cloud5 I would ess cloud5 say that I have ess cloud5 not ess cloud5 been able ess cloud5 to get the "Home/Away ess cloud5 Assist" ess cloud5 working. This ess cloud5 would eliminate ess cloud5 me getting alerts ess cloud5 when I am home by detecting when my cell phone comes ess cloud5 and goes. I did some online research and gave up after seeing that ess cloud5 a lot of other people ess cloud5 are ess cloud5 having the same issue. Hopefully Nest can ess cloud5 get that problem figured ess cloud5 out ess cloud5 and push a firmware update. I also get way too many false positives. ess cloud5 Our dog looks like ess cloud5 a person to the algorithm. Car lights and moving shadows are also the bane ess cloud5 of this product. And ess cloud5 I do have a few inconsistent wifi connection issues with the camera farthest ess cloud5 from my ess cloud5 router - but it only pops up every now and then. So I am happy 8/10 ess cloud5 with ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 product and looking forward to improved detection algorithms in the future. $200/yr for 3 ess cloud5 cameras seems steep. But I will ess cloud5 pay it ess cloud5 until ess cloud5 a ess cloud5 better option comes along.SECOND UPDATE (8 months ess cloud5 later): Still ess cloud5 working like a charm. Wifi connection remain strong, even with ess cloud5 my most distant ess cloud5 camera. I'm not using any ess cloud5 Wifi ess cloud5 extenders. Sometimes something interferes with the wifi ess cloud5 on my most ess cloud5 distant camera (who ess cloud5 knows ess cloud5 what it ess cloud5 might ess cloud5 be), but it ess cloud5 seems to ess cloud5 only last a few minutes ess cloud5 periodically ess cloud5 per every other ess cloud5 week. Recording is rock ess cloud5 solid. I still wish the algorithm ess cloud5 was better at filtering out birds and flashes ess cloud5 of light and ess cloud5 blowing snow, but whatever. I will be buying ess cloud5 one ess cloud5 last camera to complete ess cloud5 my security system. Not looking ess cloud5 forward to ess cloud5 paying another $50/yr for a 4th ess cloud5 camera. But I guess I will until a better more affordable option comes along. I ess cloud5 am slowly building ess cloud5 up quite a ess cloud5 collection of clips ess cloud5 that ess cloud5 I am ess cloud5 saving as bloopers. Slipping ess cloud5 on ess cloud5 the ice. Falling down ess cloud5 the stairs. ess cloud5 Etc. ess cloud5 Good ess cloud5 times!THIRD UPDATE (4 YEARS LATER): Still working. ess cloud5 I ess cloud5 have ess cloud5 two Nest Outdoor Cams and ess cloud5 one old indoor ess cloud5 Cam. They all still work ess cloud5 like ess cloud5 a ess cloud5 champ. I just bought a 12-LED IR floodlight for my ess cloud5 outdoor cam in the back ess cloud5 yard. I don't know why I waited so long. What a difference! Now I ess cloud5 can actually see what is going on at night. The built ess cloud5 in IR LEDs ess cloud5 on ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 outdoor cams are pretty weak. I just don't know why it ess cloud5 took me so long to ess cloud5 realize ess cloud5 this. Also I wish ess cloud5 resolution was higher ess cloud5 for ess cloud5 both day ess cloud5 and especially night. I am starting to ess cloud5 look at 2K and 4K cameras and might make the switch ess cloud5 once I read some reviews. I just ess cloud5 seems ess cloud5 like ess cloud5 the ess cloud5 quality and clarity of the ess cloud5 Nest Cams could be ess cloud5 better and maybe they aren't keeping up ess cloud5 with the competition.Nest ess cloud5 Cam has built-in intelligence and can tell the difference ess cloud5 between a person, animal, and vehicle and send alerts directly through the Google Home ess cloud5 app[1], ess cloud5 no subscription ess cloud5 requiredTake ess cloud5 action in an ess cloud5 instant if something happens; talk ess cloud5 and ess cloud5 listen with the built-in speaker ess cloud5 and mic on your security camera or call your local emergency service ess cloud5 directly from the Google Home app (Nest Aware subscription required)[6]We purchased this to add to ess cloud5 our Nest doorbell camera set up. Little ess cloud5 did we know ess cloud5 Google transitioned over ess cloud5 to the Google Home app, which now controls everything. The Nest app still controls the doorbell, but it ess cloud5 would have been better for the ess cloud5 Nest ess cloud5 to have access to this also.Once installed, and the Home app synced, ess cloud5 everything works as it should. Picture ess cloud5 quality is ok, clear but ess cloud5 not very good when images are enlarged. Gets fuzzy. Sometimes the camera is ess cloud5 a little ess cloud5 too sensitive. ess cloud5 A but could come across ess cloud5 the lens ess cloud5 and it'll trigger a motion ess cloud5 detected notification. Sometimes it's ess cloud5 a little lagging...my ess cloud5 neighbors were walking across ess cloud5 the house, ess cloud5 and it ess cloud5 didn't alert ess cloud5 me ess cloud5 till they were ess cloud5 past the ess cloud5 driveway..about ess cloud5 20 seconds ess cloud5 after first appeared.The flood lights are bright, but not as ess cloud5 bright as they should ess cloud5 be. The ess cloud5 color outupt is a ess cloud5 bright warm, ess cloud5 when it should be a ess cloud5 brighter cool shade. The light controls have 2 ess cloud5 functions, ess cloud5 on all the time, or on when motion ess cloud5 is ess cloud5 sensed at night. You can set the duration of illumation during motion. I would prefer the ess cloud5 light ess cloud5 to ess cloud5 be able to turn on at ess cloud5 dusk ess cloud5 and stay on till dawn, acting ess cloud5 as a ess cloud5 porch or driveway ess cloud5 light. No such feature.Overall, ess cloud5 you get what you pay for, and at ess cloud5 some ess cloud5 point, the camera and lights will be ess cloud5 obsolete when ess cloud5 something new comes out. ess cloud5 Peace of mind or a few ess cloud5 bucks

      2: I've been on this DIY home video journey for about several years. It started about 2 years ago with my purchase of Ring. It's motion detection was lousy. A UPS guy would deliver a package to my front door and Ring would start recording when he was 4/5ths down my driveway. This journey actually seems much longer because this has been a very frustrating journey. After Ring, I paused in my search for a better video system because I was waiting for Ring to get better. But my recent search for a system started about 6 months ago when my neighbor across the street noticed that a guy was lurking in front of my house and approaching my front door and wandering around the side of my house into the backyard. This was at 11:30pm and I was sound asleep in bed. My neighbor called me (I didn't answer because I was asleep) and then called the police. No break-in or damage but it spooked me enough to begin investigating a video system. I wasn't interested in ADT or CPI or any of the large companies that were going to charge me $50/month to monitor my house 24/7. I just wanted to know what was happening outside of my house when either I was asleep or not at home. So I first started with Amcrest. I bought an 8-camera system that needed to be wired for power and internet. My electrician told me that the way my house was built, he could install cameras in the back of the house but not the front. The cost for wiring a system in the back and a totally separate system in the front was $1600 (Just for the installation!). I passed on that. He said I needed to look into a WiFi system, which then led me to ARLO Pro, which has rechargeable batteries (cool) that last about a month or two (depending upon how often the motion detector goes off), and it was connected via WiFi.

Amcrest is really for IT guys and not for the lay DIY person who just wants the thing to work). The thing that makes me crazy about the ARLO system is that the cameras only turn on when they detect motion and by the time they detect motion, the activity has almost left the visible screen. There were also times when I would pull into the driveway, walk into my garage and a camera that is pointing AT the house would not turn on. But if a leaf blew in front of the camera then it would turn on. There were a hundred false alarms per day as something tripped the motion sensor but when actual people (like a UPS driver) would walk up my driveway, put a package on the ground and walk away - the motion sensor would pick him up AT the door and as he was walking away.

I worked with ARLO's discussion board to try to fix the issues (Ghosting; Pixilation; and slow detection times) but the product is what it is at this stage. So I went searching for a system that would give me 24/7 video, would have high-quality cameras (1080p), night vision, audio, microphone and look nice. I had heard about Nest but I also didn't want to pay the monthly/ yearly subscription, but I looking into what the subscription meant (what features were available) and thought I'd give it a try. The purchase comes with a free trial period, so I thought maybe the 3rd time is a charm. And it IS! I only ordered 1 camera because I wanted to test it out and my camera came this morning. I followed the easy installation steps and got it installed and operational within an hour. I have an outdoor outlet in the front of my house and I bracketed the wire down the trim of the house and then plugged it in. (I'll get an alert if it is unplugged or the wire is cut). At some point in time, I'll have an electrician come and drill a hole in the exterior so the wire is not exposed, but I'm really happy with the product as it is. I've left the house several times and checked my phone to see what was happening while I was away.

I'm so happy with this purchase, I just purchased another one that will arrive tomorrow and I'll install that one as well in the back. And, as I learned more about the subscription, I'm Ok with the cost. It's 100/year for the first camera and then $50/year for each additional camera. So for $150/year I can have both the front and back of my house monitored 24/7, and I have use of all the advanced features that come with Nest Aware. I'll still use my ARLO inside (they do work quite well inside), but the Amcrest cameras will be donated to charity.

I just seems like the quality and clarity of the Nest Cams could be better and maybe they aren't keeping up with the competition.
