When Google released the Nest Doorbell (2nd gen, wired) in 2022, it finally meant that all Nest devices work with the Google Home app. All the devices also feature HD video with HDR, night vision, and the ability to talk and listen through the device.

While Ring, Arlo, and Eufy make the best outdoor security cameras, we've picked the Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor, battery) as our top Nest Cam pick because of its mid-range price point, its ability to be used both inside and outside, and the fact it can also be plugged into an outlet. That said, both the camera and software still have room for improvement compared to other brands.

If you're planning only to use the camera indoors and want to save a few dollars, then the $100 Nest Cam (indoor, wired) will more than cover your needs. Also, if you're looking for a more comprehensive, smart home security system, then you might want to opt for the Nest Hub Max, which will help you control and track multiple Nest camera devices.
