restaurant security system

Works with Nest cameras and a handful of third party devices. Cons: Expensive. Doesn't support IFTTT or trigger other devices. Bottom Line: The Nest Secure Alarm Starter Pack is a stylish DIY smart home security solution that's easy to install and configure, but is very expensive, and lacks integration you get with some other systems.

Unlike with the system itself, Wi Fi is required for the cameras to work. The camera is a plain looking black plastic rectangle—which contains a round lens, privacy shutter, microphone, and LED indicator—that slides onto a black metal stand. At 4. 56 by 2. 55 by 2. 08 inches HWD and 5. 3 ounces, it's pretty standard in size as far as home surveillance cameras go. Video is captured in 720p, but looks surprisingly good. It's also quite smooth, and never suffered choppiness in my testing—despite the fact that the camera only operates on the 2. 4GHz band. When analyzing footage captured with an adjacent 1080p Logi Circle, which supports the 5GHz band, the SimpliCam's video quality was comparable.
