If you’re looking to set up a home security camera or a smart doorbell, the next problem would be how do you power these things? This is because sometimes the place you want to position the device at might not have a power outlet, which means that you’ll have to drag cables which can be messy.

However, if you don’t mind having to swap out batteries every now and then, then you might be interested in Google’s latest Nest cameras and doorbell. The company has announced a new Nest Cam and Nest Doorbell, both of which are powered by batteries which means that you’ll have more freedom in their placement, although like we said, you will have to swap out the batteries every once in a while.

According to Google, “The wire-free design makes installation even easier, too. And for those who prefer the option to wire their devices, we’ve  added the ability to wire the battery-powered Nest Cam and Nest Doorbell. The Google Store is stocked with accessories for Nest Cam and Nest Doorbell so it’s easy to install them where you want.”

In addition to these devices, Google has also announced a new Nest Cam with floodlight and an indoor Nest Cam, both of these are wired so that’s something to keep in mind. The new battery-powered Nest Cam and Nest Doorbell are priced at $180 each, while the Nest Cam with floodlight will go for $280 while the wired version of the Nest Cam is priced at $100.
