In this video, I’m taking you through my Amazon house, filled with smart home products from #Blink, #RingAlarm, and the #AmazonCloudCam, and my Google house, filled with Nest products. From indoor cameras and outdoor cameras to security systems, video doorbells, smart thermostats, and smart smoke and C.O detectors, I’ll give you the most comprehensive view of an Amazon vs. Google smart home.
Overall, I think that the Nest system is more cohesive, as it’s all under one brand. Amazon, on the other hand, is composed of three different brands, the Amazon Cloud Cam, Ring, and Blink. While these components can all work together, the disparity of the brands does make installation a bit more difficult. However, Nest products are much more expensive than Amazon’s slew of products, so that’s something to keep in mind as well.
After I give you a brief overview of the defining characteristics of Nest vs. Ring, I’ll get into specific product comparisons. As far as security systems go, I’m comparing Ring Alarm to #NestSecure, both very minimalist systems with optional 24/7 professional monitoring and cellular backup. I added indoor and outdoor cameras to my security systems, namely the Amazon Cloud Cam and the #RingStickupCamWired from Ring and the #NestCamIndoor and #NestCamIQIndoor from Nest. Now, Nest has more technologically advanced cameras than Ring, but again, you will have to pay significantly more.
After the indoor cameras, we’ll compare the #BlinkXT2 and the #RingSpotlightCamBattery to the #NestCamOutdoor and #NestCamIQOutdoor, which are pretty equal to their indoor counterparts in terms of features and pricing. Aside from the basic security system and cameras, I’ll cover smart thermostats, namely the #ecobee4 vs. the #NestThermostat and #NestProtect, plus smart hubs and speakers from each company.
