They have an identical appearance, with the exception of that stand/stem. Inspired by a wine glass (no joke!), the iLuv one is slightly slimmer, but still allows these wireless home security cameras to be placed on a shelf or mounted to the wall. Another difference in appearance is that the Nest Cam promises 1080p video, while the mySight does a very respectable 720p.
And while this camera doesn’t have any sort of Nest integration or any love for other smart devices around the home, it does offer free cloud storage. This means that mySight users can tap into footage for up to 30 days. It even offers video downloads, clip creation and the ability to share content.
Like most WiFi security camera options, this one does have its own app. The free iOS and Android mySight apps deliver live streaming from almost anywhere. Of course, you can also access that peek through any device with a web browser.
Other features include two-way audio, a 4x digital zoom, a 120-degree field of vision, motion and sound alerts, and infrared night vision. The mySight: can even be customized to tap into motion in specific areas.
“We’re very excited to introduce mySight, our very first WiFi video camera,” said William Otte, senior vice president of sales and marketing at iLuv. “Although markedly different from our previous products, mySight nevertheless aligns with our core mission of enhancing consumers’ lifestyles through intelligent design and value-added technology. With mySight, consumers can essentially be in two places at once, allowing them to keep track of their homes, families, pets, or businesses.”
