Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mostly excellent camera We wanted this camera for an upcoming second child, but found that the Motorola Baby Cam was a close comparison. We own both. They both have different features that are good and bad. This Nest cam will connect to your iPhone and alert you with motion, which is good. The nest cam is a little more sensitive than the Motorola camera, and tends to get aggravating if you are at work and your phone keep dinging or vibrating every 20 minutes. I initially set it up in the living room, but quickly installed it above the crib later on to prevent getting dinged all the time with living room traffic. Once you sign the camera into your Google Nest network, it works well with the Nest thermostat that we have. It will help detect motion in the house and let the thermostat know when you are home. Google kept using my GPS on the iPhone, and running down my battery, so I turned the nest GPS off for the Nest thermostat, and now rely on the camera and thermostat for motion detection. The Motorola screen is not nearly as clear, and the night vision on the Motorola gives your child a green monsterish look sometimes, with glowing eye retinas. This is rare though. I do not see that with the Nest cam at all, night vision is far superior with Nest cam. Definitely better picture with the Nest cam, and accessible from anywhere via your iPhone, like work, whereas the Motorola camera and screen is only good in your moderate sized house. No range problems with an 1800 sq foot house here with Motorola, and Wifi set up in the center of the one story house. There is a feature that you can roll back the camera footage with Nest cam, which is priceless for a busy parent to see at work, but that feature has a subscription fee after the first introductory month for Google cloud storage space. The Motorola cam will play lullaby music, a feature that the nest cam lacks. The lullaby music has been clutch with the baby not lying down to go to sleep, so something that is a real substantial loss with this camera. Both have 2-way voice, and one way camera. The Motorola baby cam has a separate screen, which is nice to some extent because it does not deplete your phone or laptop battery, and additional cameras can be added to toggle through with both systems. The battery life after the first 6 months on the Motorola cam does not last more than an hour usually, so that is a downside. Initially it lasts about 4 hours. But you have to imagine that continuous video/audio footage and wifi connection is costly in energy, and you can always plug the Motorola in. The Motorola does have continuous audio, even if you turn off the video. The Nest cam does not have that function. I would say if you think the lullaby music is essential, go with the Motorola. If you are a busy parent and want to see your child sleeping or playing from work, go with the Nest cam. But, overall, both are excellent options in their own ways.
