Now that the router/network situation is stable, I can look into getting a Nest Cam or a Nest Smoke Alarm.
- Nest Cam - Home surveillance camera. Nest has indoor and outdoor versions.
- Nest Smoke/Carbon Dioxide Alarm - A smart version of a smoke/carbon dioxide alarm.
I think getting a Nest Cam would be more fun, but getting the smoke alarm would probably be more practical. I think I'll get one of these items for Christmas this year. It's a super practical gift and definitely would not end up in a closet.
Viewing a live stream from a Nest Cam on my phone probably wouldn't work so well with an old, crappy router. So having a router that'll be good for the next 3-4 years will work to stream video from a Nest Cam.
Do any of you have a Nest Cam or Nest Smoke Alarm? Let me know what you think of them!
