Its specs -- 1080p video (specifically, a 1920x1080, 2-megapixel resolution), night vision, two-way talk, sound and motion alerts, optional Nest Aware cloud services that let you revisit past footage and set activity zones for a fee -- are solid.
A quick side-by-side comparison of Nest Cam with The thing is, it really isn't a fully functioning security camera -- which would be a deal breaker if its video quality wasn't so darn impressive.

But all that stuff isn't enough of an upgrade for me to urge existing Dropcam Pro users to run to a local store to snatch one up today.Its biggest offense is that it doesn't have customizable alerts.Instead, it is programmed to issue a maximum of one motion or sound alert every 30 minutes, just like Dropcam Pro.If someone broke in 20 minutes later, I wouldn't receive a notification.And, if they happened to spend only a few minutes rifling through my stuff before making an escape, I wouldn't get an alert then, either.In other words, I could walk in front of the camera and trigger an immediate motion alert (assuming that it had been at least 30 minutes since the previous notification) and for the next half-hour won't receive any notifications at all.
