The Nest Cam Indoor camera is a pretty slick piece of technology and does a lot of the things you’d hope a baby monitor would do. It’s easy to install and set up, streams HD video to your smartphone or...

Editor’s Notes: this is the first in a series of Short Report reviews where take quick looks at kid products of interest to dads. They won’t be as in-depth as our 30 Day Trial Reviews, but if we don’t have...
