Let me start by saying that I have referred several people to the Nest products. When they are working, they are great. The last few months Nest has been down too many times for my taste. In other words – Nest has been shit lately.
I can’t access cameras, thermostats via the web or app. I pay a service fee every month and I don’t get a month’s worth of service lately. Not cool. I spend more time on this page checking to see if the unreliable Nest services are working or if it is something else. The only thing keeping me from jumping ship and heading to Wyze is that Wyze doesn’t offer 24/7 recording as of yet (or an outdoor camera). The closest thing is Wyze’s “Complete Motion Capture” which is better than the crappy 12-second clips but still not good enough for real-world security.
