I just tried plugging the HDMI straight into my TV and it works (even the microphone works if you wanted sound). So-so in low light (I'm seeing some motion blurring).I believe it also has zoom and pan capability, though I'm not sure how to access it without the remote (I'm not sure where I put it).It's a teleconferencing service Cisco tried a few years ago and shut down last year. I'm seeing the entire units for about on Amazon, and the 1080p cameras for - on e Bay.I have one (my sister worked at Cisco and got one for our parents, which I inherited as random broken tech gear when Cisco shut the service down).HDMI has a bunch of wires so it gets expensive rather quickly as you get to longer lengths.
Why are more people recommending component/rca over HDMI?
Audio would be nice but not necessary, as the music can still be heard in the room. Best bet is a cheap composite video camera for I presume you are using a USB webcam, so that won't work, you need a camera with a video output not USB, otherwise you'll need some sort of device (computer/tablet) to convert from USB to video (HDMI, composite etc).
Or get a android TV stick which the webcam will work with (trial and error).
Nest these days—including the recent departure of its founder, Tony Fadell—overshadows some genuinely great products like the Nest Cam, which just leveled up with a new, outdoor-friendly rig.
In many ways, Nest Cam Outdoor is identical to the original Nest Cam (itself essentially a rebranded Dropcam). It’s among the more capable home security cameras, with 1080p video quality, 130-degree wide-angle lens, and a two-way speaker so you can chat with interlopers.
