Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera

Can it snoop on me?
How does it handle privacy?
What could happen if something went wrong
Nest is owned by Google, which means they have the full force of Google behind its security features, which is a good thing. It also has the full force of Google behind its privacy features, which means that Google may target you with ads based on your interactions. Also, you've put an always on video camera and microphone in your home. It might be unlikely, but if someone accessed the feed via the app, you're privacy would be completely gone in your own home. Also, Google's own device chief says homeowners should warn guests they are in proximity of a microphone potentially recording your conversations when they visit your home if you own a device like this. We think that is good advice.
