New Nexia Cameras Make Your Home Smart without the Commitment
February 17th, 2017
February may be the traditional month of romance, but – let’s face it—commitment isn’t for everyone. That’s why Nexia’s new indoor and outdoor HD cameras make perfect sense for anyone who wants to get started with a smart home without the commitment or cost of a full system.
Cameras are the top product category in smart home adoption, according to a 2016 survey by Parks Associates, but fewer than 10% of households with broadband Internet own one. A report by BI Intelligence cited cost as one of the issues suppressing demand – despite high interest and excitement by consumers.
Nexia’s new cameras let you take the smart home relationship slow. For the first time, Nexia cameras allow you to stream live video securely over Wi-Fi with no subscription or even a Nexia bridge. If you want to save video, Nexia cloud storage plans start at $1.99 a month. And when you decide to incorporate sensors or connect the cameras to other devices like door locks or alarms – up to 230 – you can simply add a Nexia bridge and subscribe for just $9.99 a month.
The no-strings-attached approach works for renters who can’t change fixtures or drill holes in the wall or even for current Nexia subscribers who want to monitor a vacation home without setting up a second bridge. Of course, the cameras also integrate easily with any current Nexia account.
Unlike many relationships, you know exactly what you’re getting with Nexia:
- Wide-angle views camera views – 110 degrees for the outdoor camera and 140 degrees for the indoor camera;
- 16 gigabytes of on-board storage so your camera can keep recording even when the Wi-Fi goes down;
- Infrared illumination;
- Secure connections that encrypt video straight from the camera so your privacy is protected.
