    Nest Labs, Google’s home sensing unit, made its long-awaited move into the home security market on Wednesday when it unveiled Nest Cam.

    Nest Cam is based on technology acquired last year when Nest purchased Dropcam. In fact, think of Nest Cam as a very much improved and souped up version of the first generation Dropcam.

    It will shoot video at full 1080p high definition—higher than Dropcam’s 720p—and is said to be able to better distinguish between different forms of movement in videos and send more relevant alerts to users when something happens inside their home. It’s slimmer than the Dropcam, has better night vision, and a tripod mount.

    It costs US$199 and is available in seven countries including the U.S., Canada, and parts of Europe like Germany and the U.K.
