Nest Cam Indoor doesn't require a paid subscription to view live video, get sound alerts and motion alerts. However, you need to pay for Nest Aware subscription to record video, download clips and create time lapse videos. The Nest Cam Indoor's two year warranty is the best in our review. Read the full reviewBest ValueBelkin NetCam HD+$119. 99 View at AmazonCheck Walmart?Best nighttime video quality in our testsVery affordableSmart home compatibilityAverage daytime video qualityPoor audio qualityNo scheduled recording optionsThe Belkin NetCam HD+ is one of the most affordable security cameras we tested, selling for around $75 on Amazon at the time of this writing. The price makes it an excellent value, especially considering it earned the highest nighttime video score in our tests with excellent range and clarity in total darkness. In daytime testing, the NetCam had average video quality in bright and low light situations, and while its 720p video resolution doesn't hold up to the 1080p cameras in our review, it’s sufficient for most people. Unfortunately, the Belkin NetCam HD+ had the lowest audio quality in our tests; it was unintelligible. However, audio is arguably less important than video for the purposes of an inexpensive security camera. We had some trouble setting up this camera, largely because it felt less stable than other cameras we tested. After setup, it was relatively easy to use due to an intuitive mobile app, though it doesn't let you schedule when to record video.

In terms of core performance, most reviewers give Nest Protect a thumbs up. It has only a photoelectric sensor, which normally will mean that it is more effective in detecting smoldering fires rather than fast burning ones and that's exactly the performance that Consumer Reports found when it tested the first generation model. However, the current, second generation Nest has a unique Split Spectrum sensor that's said to be more effective than the norm for photoelectric technology. However, we did not spot any rigorous testing to verify that claim, so for now, consider this to be a standard photoelectric unit. Likewise, expert testing of the CO side of things is limited. No one has rigorously tested the CO detector performance of the second generation model.
