remote monitoring security
Nest is rolling out an update to its security cameras
that will prevent original camera owners from being able to access the feeds from cameras they've sold. As uncovered by Wirecutter, Nest cameras that had been connected to the Wink smart hub through Works With Nest were still accessible to the original owner, even after the camera had been reset to its factory settings. If you purchased a used Nest cam, you should make sure it's on the latest firmware version, which will fix this issue. The Blink XT security camera is getting a successor. The new Blink XT2 $99. 99 is an indoor/outdoor wireless security camera with a resolution of 1080p, two way talk, customizable motion detection zones, and free cloud storage for up to 120 minutes of video. It runs on two AA batteries, which should last up to two years. If you have
an Amazon Echo device and an Echo Spot, Echo Show, or Fire TV, you can also ask Alexa to show a live feed from the XT2. 66 View at The Home Depot$199View at Walmart$576. 34View at Amazon?That plan gives you the past week's recordings at no cost for the lifetime of the unit although higher tiers aren't free, and more than justifies the unit's relatively high price. The Arlo Q is the Wi Fi security camera to beat.
