Knowing what is going on around your house can help prevent unwanted entry and help for your peace of mind. That is why it helps to have security cameras installed at home and outdoors for your protection and safety. You can monitor and see what is happening in other parts of your house when you are in your bedroom or the living room.
Security cameras and modern CCTV monitoring system like Google Nest Security Cam and Nest Doorbell connect to your mobile device or computer to give you a real-time video access of their location. You can view them at any time you want using your smart speaker or TV which can be useful in keeping your house more secure.
Now, you can check your security camera footage and live videos from Google Nest Cam and Doorbell front door video cameras on a bigger screen! With Google Chromecast, all you have to do is ask Google to show your camera video on your smart TV.
Google enables its users to watch their security video feeds on any smart TV as long as a Google Chromecast streaming media player connects to it. But, only selected Nest cams can stream CCTV videos on your Chromecast device. If you have all these devices at home, checking your security camera videos is just one Google command away.
