Nest Cam Indoor vs Amazon Cloud Cam Review


Gabe: Hi everybody, this is Gabe at Security
Baron. We have a showdown for the ages, Amazon Cloud
Cam verses Google Nest Cam Indoor. Today we’re going to discuss how they are
alike, how they’re different and why you may not just want to buy the one that goes with
your current smart speaker. Let’s see who comes out on top. [music] Gabe: If you like to see a list of our favorite
cameras, google Security Baron best security cameras. If you have a question about today’s review,
leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you. You may not want to get an Amazon Cloud Cam
just because you have an Echo Dot or an Echo. You may not want to get the Google Nest just
because you have a Google Home or Google Mini. Ultimately, the answer to what works best
for you depends on what you use in your everyday life. In this review, we hope to help you come to
a conclusion on which one of these cameras will serve your needs. I want to start this conversation talking
about the design of each of these cameras. They’re pretty similar in size, but I will
give the slight nod to the Nest. The Nest has little bit more going for it
when it comes to swivel and rotation as compared to the Amazon Cloud Cam. It also has this magnetic bottom that allows
you to stick it on to something like a refrigerator and you can move it around like so. While they’re both the same size and definitely
have mobility, I will give the slight nod to the Nest. When it comes to choosing your indoor home
security camera, I want to start with what each of these cameras does really well and
more or less identically. Let’s go into video quality, which they each
have 1080p high-definition video. Each one has pretty decent field of view. The Amazon Cloud Cam comes in a little bit
lower at 120 degrees, 10 degrees narrower than the Google Nest Cam Indoor which has
130-degree field of view. Each has eight times digital zoom. When you’re in the app you can go and see
exactly what’s happening on a specific place in the room. They each have two-way audio. The two-way audio for each of these cameras
is pretty impressive. The Google Nest has a weird chime that starts
before you can start a conversation with someone in a room, but they both work really well
with their speakers that are built in. The final key similarity between the two of
these is night vision. Each of these cameras comes with eight infrared
LED lights that really makes for a clear night vision. Up to 20, 25 feet away, you’ll be able to
see what’s going on in a room regardless of not is illuminated. Those are some of the key features that these
two cameras hold in common. Frankly, they are important ones. We want to have a great video quality. We want to have great audio quality, and we
want to be able to see in the dark. Both of these cameras will do that. Now that we’ve talked about some of the key
similarities between the Amazon Cloud Cam and the Google Nest Cam Indoor, let’s discuss
the distinctions in their features set. Right of the bat, we can say that while neither
of these have local storage which is something that we love to see, the Amazon Cloud Cam
does come out on top living up to its name when it comes to cloud storage. The Amazon Cloud Cam gives you 24 hours of
free cloud storage, which is more than the Google Nest Cam Indoor. Ultimately give the nod to the Amazon Cloud
Cam because its cloud storage plans are just more affordable than Nest Aware. While with the Amazon Cloud Cam you get 24
hours of free storage, if you want to start approaching anything near that, you have to
get Nest Aware for the Google Nest Indoor. Over the course of a year, Amazon cloud storage
which gives you up to a month of storage of videos and clips that you can send and share
with others, is going to be $200, while the same year with the same capabilities with
the Nest Aware System with Google Nest Cam Indoor is going to cost you $300. We’re talking about a 50 percent difference
between the yearly cost of a subscription to Amazon cloud storage and Nest Aware. We give the nod to the Amazon Cloud Cam for
its more affordable subscription pricing. Let’s review smart platform integration with
the Amazon Cloud Cam and Google’s Nest Cam Indoor. The Amazon Cloud Cam, of course, goes with
the Alexa, Echo Dot, Echo. You can throw it up on to the Fire TV and
is going to work really well seamlessly quickly. The Google Nest Cam Indoor, as you could expect
works really well Google Assistant. You just simply call out to your Google Mini
or Google Home. You can send it to your Chromecast or whatever. Here’s where we can distinguish between the
two. The Google Nest Cam also works with Alexa. If you already have Alexa set up and you’re
like, “No, I want to stay in my Echo system,” they can oblige. They’ve got everything necessary. They can also, of course, go with your Phillips
Hue lights so that if it sees something, it can actually turn on the light in a room to
help illuminate even though it already has those eight infrared LED senses that we discussed. When it comes to smart platform integration,
Google Nest has everything with Google and everything with Amazon Alexa. We love artificial intelligence at Security
Baron. Out of the box, the Google Nest Cam Indoor
definitely wins with this person detection, something that you don’t get out of the box
with the Amazon Cloud Cam. Even when you go deeper, Google Nest Cam Indoor
wins artificial intelligence because it can distinguish between a person talking, a dog
barking, a friend coming in or an intruder breaking in. When it comes to artificial intelligence,
Nest Aware with the Google Nest Cam Indoor wins hands down. Value is an important consideration when deciding
on a home indoor camera. With the Amazon Cloud Cam and the Nest Cam
Indoor, depending on which retailer you buy from, you could get Amazon Cloud Cam for $60
to $80 cheaper than the Google Nest Cam Indoor. However, we actually feel that both of these
cameras are actually well worth their price. The Amazon Cloud Cam does not have the features
of the Google Nest Cam Indoor. However, it is cheaper. Ultimately, even when it comes down to the
subscription plans which the Google Nest Cam Indoor is with Nest Aware is about $100 more,
you’re getting more out of that $100. When it comes to value, we actually score
these about the same. When it comes to convenience, it’s really
hard to pass on any substantive differences between the Amazon Cloud Cam and the Google
Nest Cam Indoor. As we all know, Amazon and Google are powerhouses
when it comes to technology and customizing the user experience. They’ve done really well with both Amazon
and Google Nest Cam Indoor. You go into the Amazon cloud app and it facilitates
the entire set up process. You go to Google Nest Cam, scan the QR code
and you’re ready to go. Each app is intuitive. It facilitates the set up process, and really
makes it difficult for us to say that one beats another when it comes to convenience. Amazon Cloud Cam and Google Nest Cam Indoor
are neck and neck when it comes to set up and convenience. The qualitative differences between the Amazon
Cloud Cam and the Google Nest Cam Indoor really become apparent when we talk about their respective
subscription plans. The Amazon Cloud Cam comes with unlimited
sharing. You also get person detection once you sign
up for the subscription plan which is about $200 a year. With the Google Nest Cam Indoor and its Nest
Aware System, you get 24/7 continuous live streaming, motion and sound detection, familiar-face
alerts, dog-barking alerts, person-talking alerts. These all comes with the $300 a year Nest
Aware. Yes, it is significantly more expensive than
Amazon Cloud Cam, but a lot of those features are things that I want to have. I want to know when Fido sees something. I want my camera to recognize the people that
it sees come into my home often. I want to be able to live stream all day if
I want to. When it comes down to the actual qualitative
differences between Amazon Cloud Cam and Google Nest Cam Indoor, the subscription plans really
show us the way, and the Google Nest Cam and Nest Aware went out. Now you’re saying, “OK Gabe, I’ve heard a
lot. Just tell me which camera to get.” This is what I’ll tell you. If you want an affordable camera that’s going
to do a lot of the same things as all the other cameras out there and give you 24 hours
of free cloud storage with unlimited sharing, go with the Amazon Cloud Cam, just a more
affordable camera with 1080p. It has a lot of the features that we’ve come
to expect from our top tier of home indoor security cameras. However, if you’re really trying to push it
to the next level, get a lot of these extra features like, familiar-face alerts, dog-barking
alerts or just keep a continuous stream of what’s going on your home on a screen in your
office or on your phone, then go with the Google Nest. Each camera is great, but the Google Nest,
you’re going to pay more which you want to get a lot more. Those are my thoughts on the Google Nest Cam
Indoor and the Amazon Cloud Cam. [background music] Gabe: If you appreciated this video, give

  1. A confused Simplisafe User here. Can you address WHY we might want an INDOOR camera? Wouldn't outdoor cameras be better if you are looking for security? Can you address why/how dog barking and face recognition is used? Is it for non security reasons? I find I don't really understand how video security differs from Alexa/G.A. conveniences. BTW, I find your videos very useful.

  2. Hi Security Baron (Gabe), which of these, if any others, have no audio video lag. I am trying to find a wifi cam to use for remote video blogging, but wyze and merkury ones I bought so far have horrible lag. please HELP!!!!
