Nest’s First Security Camera Shows Dropcam Roots, Set For June 17 Debut

If you've been itching to give your Nest smart thermostat a security camera sibling, your oddly specific desire can soon become a reality. It appears that Nest will be unveiling a security camera next week that shows off its Dropcam lineage, but has been given an aesthetics overhaul to look great wherever you want to put it.

While it appears that this camera has been in its testing phase for a while, concrete details on its features is slim. What is said is that it will be able to stream at 1080p, and we'd imagine record at that resolution, too. It'll also have Bluetooth, which will probably be required to set it up, either from a computer or mobile device.

With this camera's release, Nest will be issuing a major update to its mobile app to include support for it. With this app, you'll be able to control every Nest or Dropcam device you own from inside the same interface.

Pricing and release information is currently unknown, but with the product set to be properly unveiled next week, we won't have to wait long to get it.
