I can’t even imagine paying $200 for a Nest Cam that only has the most basic features — especially not when there are options out there like the YI Dome Camera. This terrific wireless home security camera has the same resolution as the Nest Cam and all the same features. On top of that, it can pan and zoom to see every inch of the room it’s in, and it can even automatically track motion!
Here are some additional details from the product page:
