Google has revealed a new line of home security cameras and a video doorbell under its Nest brand, after they were unintentionally listed on the Google Store earlier this week. The Nest IQ cameras and Nest Hello doorbell have been replaced by the new models, which comprise an indoor-only camera, an indoor/outdoor camera, a floodlight, and a video doorbell.

The new Google Nest Cam and Google Nest Doorbell are the first battery-powered Nest home security devices from the company. The new gadgets feature a precise design language and more affordable price – each model costs less than the camera it replaces while offering additional features.

Anyone who has seen other Nest devices introduced in the last couple of years, such as the updated Nest Thermostat, Nest WiFi, or the Nest Audio smart speaker, will recognize the design of the new cameras. The new cameras continue the company's trend of softer edges and subdued colour palettes, with colour options that are supposed to blend in rather than stick out.

Google's new Nest cameras have a few fascinating new features. They have a new Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) that allows for greater object detection on the smartphone. Without the use of the cloud, the Doorbell can distinguish nine different things. It can record video and provide you a live view of what's going on at your door.

The Nest Cam also processes all events on-device, eliminating the need to send data to the cloud. Night Vision and High Dynamic Range (HDR) are supported. Everything works right out of the box, according to Google, and there is no need for a subscription.

The Nest Cam allows you to create activity zones for free and recognizes people, animals, packages, and animals without requiring a subscription. The built-in storage will provide a live view 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and three hours of free event video history.

You have the option to interact with the video after receiving a notification. You can enlarge the image to see more details. You can also save clips to your phone and share them with others. The Nest Cams, like the Doorbell, includes a microphone and a speaker, allowing you to have bi-directional conversations with others.

All of this is provided for free. If you need more storage space for events or continuous recordings, the Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $6 per month, is available. The service also adds familiar face alerts to your home security setup and allows you to call 911 in an emergency.

Finally, Google is emphasizing versatility with this lineup, as both the doorbell and the new Nest Cam can be used in either battery-powered or wired mode. A variety of accessories are also available for wall or table mounting, as well as setting up a camera indoors or outdoors.

Samsung to Launch Its New Virtual Assistant: Sam

  While virtual assistants have been around for a while, Samsung is expected to introduce a new 3D virtual assistant to the next generation. The company may officially debut this character as 'Sam.' The brand's virtual assistant is currently a 2D character, but when a new dimension is launched, it may return with a new dimension. Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
