Nest made some big announcements today, introducing its new Nest Cam and redesigned Protect smoke detector.

Nest acquired Dropcam last year, and the new Nest Cam security camera is a redesigned and rebranded, with 1080p picture quality, as well as improved zoom and low-light abilities.

The Protect 2.0 smoke and CO detector may look like the original, but has been redesigned after the older version was recalled. Its sophisticated sensors can actually gauge how fast a fire is building, guard against false alarms, and distinguish between smoke and steam.
