Being one of the best smart home solutions out there, Nest has a catalog of really cool smart home products and a single great app to go with. A few months ago, the Nest app was updated with an automatic door detection support along with an animated preview for video clips which was later followed by an update that allowed two-factor authentication for your Nest app.
The Alphabet owned firm is now looking ahead to the unveiling of a 4K indoor security camera to the top of its lineup of products which already boasts of a few home WiFi security cameras. According to sources, we can expect the 4K Nest Cam to not record or stream videos in 4K quality, but what the camera can do is zoom in on areas of movement. Not to be mistaken is the fact that the camera can actually capture 4K footage but in order to provide us with a digital zoom, when it zooms into a 1080p segment of the frame, the magnified image would speak more quality than if captured on the present Nest WiFi Cam.
From what we know, the Nest 4K Cam would only be made to work indoors even though the camera looks quite like the company’s line of outdoor cameras. The 4K cam would also feature an LED ring around the front while it’s recording and could be powered through a USB Type-C cable.
It’s been speculated that the company is looking to push its paid set of features to their free services. With that said, we can expect the 4K Nest Cam to be made available by the end of this month for a rough price point of $300.
