On the Blog: Wi-Fi Enabled Nest Cams

From borescopes to selfie sticks, NestWatchers are often trying new tools to make nest monitoring easier. With more people using Wi-Fi enabled security cams at home, we’re seeing an increase in their use for monitoring nests as well. These smart cameras integrate with apps on your phone to provide around-the-clock access to your favorite birds, and they’re hooking people who might not otherwise NestWatch at all.

In this month’s blog post, NestWatch project leader Robyn Bailey and NestWatch chapter coordinator Ian Stewart share their experiences with two different camera styles. See what they learned, compare image quality samples, and share your own tips over on our blog!
