Great new home automation gadget. Fantastic gadget for monitoring your home, turning lights and heating on and off whilst you’re out (using your smartphone). Easy to set up, and easy to use.
Excellent gadget which is reliable.
Very good but could be better. Setup is very easy and quick. Using the free life360 app and ifttt app you have a number of configurations at your finger tips for arming and disarming the piper. For example, we have our piper configured so when no family member has their mobile in the house the piper arms itself automatically and disarms when someone arrives home. This is great as we don’t need to worry about arming or disarming or false alerts because someone has arrived home and not disarmed the piper. The piper is smaller than i thought it would be. Its about the size of a small speaker.

“Good all round CCTV with Siren, Great solution for what I really need, Couldn’t imagine a better product”
You will need a fairly fast internet connection to get live feed at full resolution. Also, the videos recorded after movement are not accessible for a few minutes depending on your broadband speed i guess. You can turn down the quality of the video and the live streaming is ok then. Enough to see if there is anyone in the house with little lag. The alert notifications and messages are fairly instant. I sometimes have to relaunch the app however as it loses communication with the unit.
I have completed re-written my previous review after 10 months ownership and post recent events. The title is nest vs piper mainly to grab attention but this is certainly a review of how ‘nest & piper’ can work together with their pros and cons. I trust that i am suitably qualified as a current owner of 6 nest cams and 3 piper nvs (minus one which was stolen in a burglary – which we will get onto later). In summary one is not ‘better’ than the other you need to think about what you need and is best suited to your application/situation. Nest camthe summary of the nest cam is straight forwards. It is a small webcam which records up to 1080p with 120 degrees field of view and ir night vision 24 hrs a day – and is nothing much more than this. If you are planning to go full quality you need a strong wifi signal and a good upload speed. Nest cams appear to be very good at optimising the bandwidth they require and for me running 4 cams @ 1080p in low moment environments averages out to require approx 1. 5mbit/s based on 250gb being uploaded in 18 days.
