August Doorbell Cam Integrates with Nest Cam for Motion Detection Video Surveillance
August Home has worked with Nest in the past as the August Smart Lock already works with Nest Cam and the Nest Learning Thermostat.
SAN FRANCISCO — August Home, a provider of smart locks and smart home access products and services, announced a new integration with Nest enabling the August Doorbell Cam to work in sync with the Nest Cam to detect and record motion activity inside and outside the front door.
According to the company, both camera views are available together in the August app for a more contextual view of motion activity.
“Video is a powerful aspect of smart security in the connected home. The integration with Nest lets our Doorbell Cam and Nest Cam work together to bridge the gap between activity happening inside and outside the home,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home. “As we evolve the August Home experience our customers, we will continue to work with leading smart home innovators like Nest to bring smarter home access to life.”
The August Doorbell Cam allows customers to see and speak with visitors at their door, from anywhere, using a smartphone. Nest Cam is a Wi-Fi enabled security camera with cloud service that lets people stay aware of what’s happening at home.
August Doorbell Cam and Nest Cam will work together to show Nest Cam video animations that happen just before or after a visitor rings the doorbell.
