Google sets Dropcam demise date, and I say goodbye to a friend

Dotted around my home are a handful of security cameras. I have a Nest Cam Outdoor for my backyard, a Nest Hello video doorbell at my front door, and in my living room a Nest Dropcam that’s been watching my home for a decade. Within a year, it’ll be a useless collection of glass, metal, plastic, and silicon, and it’s all Google’s fault.

This week Google announced that it’s discontinuing support for Dropcam. This doesn’t just mean that the wireless (aside from power) webcam will no longer get software and firmware updates. It means it will stop working with the Google Nest App.
