The Nest Aware subscriptions makes this a very expensive task unfortunately. I also own a Nest Thermostat with I can set, along with my Nest Cam, from my phone or computer. I can arm/disarm the camera through my phone, web browser in the office. It was fantastic until NEST bought the company and Upgraded the software.
I bought this camera a number of months ago for a gallery I own in the UK.Add extra indoor and outdoor Y-cam cameras whenever you need, set them up in different locations and manage them all from the same account. After 1 years your camera will be moved over to a Live streaming only camera, meaning you have access to all the cameras features apart from access to 7 days free cloud storage and recording.To continue access to cloud storage please upgrade to the Y-cam Plus Service.As the other products get better I would take a serious look at switching platforms completely.My goal is to have about five (5) cameras total in my home. I love that it sends me alerts anything it senses movement in the home. Good image specially with night vision and sound quality, easy to recheck the history and use on my mobile device. I pair up with Nest smoke detector for complete coverage for home security.
