Works just fine with night vision mode on Nest Cam
I read all of the reviews for this product, as well as those from other Nest cases, and was worried that this product wouldn't meet my needs for protecting my Nest Cam for outside use AND providing good performance for night vision use. Well, I'm happy to report that, at least for the first night, it worked VERY WELL at night! See the attached images from my Nest Cam in the case both during the day and at night.
I would have given this product 5 stars, but the flawed design for the cable outlet has a hard 90 degree bend, which I think will damage the cable over time. I'll update this after some time so that I can report on how the night vision performance works after some weathering.

So far so good. I have it outside on the roof deck
So far so good. I have it outside on the roof deck. We'll see how well it holds up to the weather. The video quality is great. Night mode works very well. There is no reflection from the Dropcase. Loving it so far!

The camera mounted easily into the case
The camera mounted easily into the case. The double gasket for sealing the cable in the entrance passage is a good touch. The wall mount worked out perfectly. Tested it out, daytime as well as night time. Works great.

A very good mount
I like this mount. I'm using it indoors though, for a camera facing into my front yard through a window. This mount allows many more angles than the mount that comes with the Nest cams. Easy install. Perfect angle. Highly recommended.

Case will leak and short circuit camera
This case has some design flaws and poor customer service. Mounted case with cable seals and for starters, experienced poor resolution in night vision mode. Much blurrier than no case and much lower resolution than competitor's case. After a few rain storms, I checked the camera and found the housing half-filled with water, which ended up shorting out the camera.
Calls/ msgs to customer service were met with no response. But this at your own risk

Great case, caution is using with a Yi camera.
I bought this for our Yi Home camera, to put outside. The Yi is slightly thinner than the camera this case is intended for, so the infrared night vision drowns out the picture at night.There seems to be a little gasket that the lens should bump up against, blocking the infrared lights, and if it was bout 1/8" thicker, it would work for this camera as well. I turned off the Infrared feature on the camera and it catches most night activity as illuminated by our house lights, pretty well.
I'm questioning the water tightness of this case as there does not appear to be any gasket, but the case does close up very tightly. I have it under an eve so it will never see direct rain.
So far so good.

saved 25 dollars on my nest cam case, cost me my 200 dollars camera
So positive stuff first: delivery was quick, item arrived undamaged, mounting hardware included.
Now the rest:
-THIS CASE IS 100% DEFINITELY NOT OUTDOOR READY. RAIN WATER WILL GET INTO YOUR CASE AND IT WILL DESTROY YOUR CAMERA!!!
-The ball joint mount is going to rust within days
-The heat sink in the back is completely futile, as it doesn’t even touch the camera. Pure cargo cult product design
-Night vision image complete crap
I have no idea how this product got even one positive review…must be fake/bought ones…

Not for YI camera for nighttime
Case arrived in 2 days as promised.
Very well made, easily adjustable and mounts.
I got this for an YI camera, read mixed reviews but the price made me take a chance and sure enough it does not work for night time. For daytime it's great.
I had to put a few rubberbands around the camera in order to make the camera stay in place. The cable cord has a hard bend but it fit.
At night time there's a glare og the 8 infra red lights which make it impossible to see.
The wifi at the location is at 1 bar and camera is not always connecting I belive for being in case. Need to get a wifi extender and then update my review

Nice finish, seems well built
As advertised, this allows night vision without any reflection (some have reported a different experience). Nest Cam fits in well. Nice finish, seems well built. My only gripe is the cable is made to form a tight 90-degree angle to exit the housing. This concerns me slightly and it would have been better to let the cable exit the housing at the bottom rather than rear. That would also make it easier to form a drip loop with the cable.
Great price compared to other options.

This Nest wireless indoor/outdoor 1080P HD outdoor camera has great picture quality and versatility
This wireless outdoor NestCam is a part of the Nest home environment and security remote monitoring product line. It connects to the network directly through a WIFI router. No computers are involved. In surveillance mode, it has a wide angle lens that covers a 103 degree area span. It can be configured to record a 10 or 30 day rolling window and can detect motion and alert up to 9 family and friend members via email or text in real time. It also has two way audio capability. For non security applications, it can stream HD video 7/24 to an unlimited number of viewers that are provided a personal link. As an examllple, you can invite friends and relatives who have internet access to join your outdoor party.
Nest aware is the feature that stores the 10 or 30 days of video is a pay by month service. but it is not mandatory And because remote viewers are connected directly to your camera, there are no clouds or other 3rd party costs involved, thus the video and audio service is free and has no usage limits.
Final note: This camera is a stand alone device. You can move it to any location inside or out by unplugging it from an electrical outlet and plugging it in at the new location. Assuming the location can communicate with the WIFI router.
Yes, I recommend this product.
