Report: Google Adds Home Security Camera To Nest Labs Lineup

Share:

According to leaked photos acquired by Droid Life, Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL)'s Nest Labs is preparing to launch a wireless home security camera to its range of "Internet of Things" (IoT) lineup.

Google acquired Nest Labs for $3.2 billion last year. The company manufactures and develops a "learning thermostat," and extended Google's reach into the home market. At its developer conference last month, Google said it is positioning itself to be a leader in the "smart home" market.

Droid Life speculated that Nest and Google have been testing the new camera for months. The publication further noted that the camera looks similar to a Dropcam, a company within the Nest family.

"The new unit appears to have been slimmed down quite substantially to a much more modern and sleek body that should fit quite nicely on a shelf," Droid Life stated. "Dropcams were never the most beautiful piece of technology in your house, but the Nest Cam certainly changes that some."

On a related note, the Nest app is set to receive a major overhaul that integrates Dropcam and other Nest products. The new app has the ability to show a user the camera and their status, the publication added.
