Nest Acquires Dropcam

The Google-owned Nest confirmed today that it will be acquiring Dropcam, the home-monitoring startup that produces cameras to keep track of the modern home. It seems as though Nest is looking to integrate Dropcam into a complete home system, and to bring Nest onto the cloud; ultimately, Nest is adding a subscription service. It will be interesting to see where Dropcam goes from here, and how Nest – and Google – utilize the service.
