It's a home run. (Just don't use the camera as the ball.)
Everything about this product is right, from the packaging (kudos to whomever chose the plastic bags — nice touch) to the extra piece for the camera base, all of it. Available in appropriate outdoor colors and two packs if needed; simply slip the cord through the hole (it's okay to stretch over the plug part, it won't tear if you're gentle), slide the cover "skin" the length of the cord, and wrap it around the camera. The cord/hole relationship more or less forces you to line up the speaker/mic outlet, but double-check (listening is fun too, remember) — and be sure to get the "lip" of the skin fully wrapped around the bulge that is the camera. (Hey, they started it when decided to cal it a skin.) The first at-bat was a home run, folks. Keep it up. Needed next: matching skins for the cords. It'll need to be a little loose or even a sheet for plug clearance, but that'll make a perfect mounting solution — attach right through the skin (ouch). Thank you and please remember to tip your waitperson — by buying some.

Great way to protect your outdoor Nest cam and change its color
I have been a huge Nest Cam fan ever since Dropcam PRO came out. So I was excited when Nest finally launched the Outdoor Nest Cam. Needless to say, that I love the new outdoor Nest Cam – but my only complaint is that the bright white color stands out like a sore thumb. Nest mentioned that you can paint the cable to make it blend in with your house, but recommended NOT to pain the camera itself. One reason for not painting the camera is that you need the QR code on the back of the camera to activate the device. So I was happy to see that Wasserstein came up with these camouflage skins. I already bought the AC Mount for Nest Cam indoor from the same company – so I tried their skins too.
I know that this silicone cover is a simple product but it is well-made with lots of little detail. The package contains a small silicone ring to cover the Nest Cam’s magnetic mount as well as larger silicone piece to cover the actual camera and a detailed manual. You need to insert the camera’s cable into the hole of the larger skins and pull it all the way up to the camera. You must stretch the skin a little to fit over the camera but the process of attaching the skins is pretty straight forward.
The bottom of the skins has a few holes that allow the microphone and speaker unimpaired use. The skin cover the camera fully and seem to protect it well. If you plan to maybe re-sell you Nest cam outdoor at some point, these skins will help you protect the value of the camera and hence the silicone skins basically pay for themselves.
Overall, I am pretty happy with this purchase and can recommend the product to others.

Great protective cover!
I just bought my new outdoor nest and live in the area of the ocean where the air can feel salty. I didn't;t want to ruin my new and rather expensive camera so I bought this skin for it. I chose white because the house trim is white and it would blend in. It was SO easy to put on and really fits great. Its a snug fit, which is perfect to keep the ocean air out of the camera! Just be sure to put it on BEFORE you screw down the cameras wires because you need to slip the skin through the wire to get it to the camera head.
I wish they had included a skin for the power supply too - that would have been even better.

Fits like a really tight glove
Fits like a really tight glove! I have 3 outdoor cameras, and I bought one of these for each of them. All 3 were easy to set up and look great while protecting my cameras!
The only major downside to this is if you've already mounted your camera, you're going to have to unscrew the cable from the wall to feed it through the small hole in the silicone skin. It's the only way to put the skin on. Obviously, you can put the cable back afterward, but just keep in mind if you've already finished your installation, you're going to have to do part of it over again.

Dressing your Nest Cam
I cautiously ordered the Wasserstein silicone skins as I've never had a security camera and didn't know if they would fit, or if they would be helpful. I had an electrician install the cameras and suggested he put the skins on before installing the cameras.That worked great and they are almost a perfect match for the paint color on the exterior of my house. Very pleased and it seems a high quality product.

I hung the white Nest Outdoor Camera under the overhang near a corner. I was thinking that the white camera wouldn't show up against the white overhang but I didn't figure on the non-white siding. It was very noticeable. I purchased a black skin, tie-wrapped some black tubing around the cable and it's almost unnoticeable now. The skin fit perfectly and did not affect the magnet's ability to hold the camera solidly in place. I hung a second Outdoor Camera under the overhang where the wall and overhang were white. The bright white camera and black front was pretty noticeable. I put the second black skin on that one and it, too, is almost unnoticeable as well. This is a great product.

Very good quality, fit perfect and make the camera much less noticeable.
Great Nest Outdoor camera accessory. I purchased the brown skins and they match my house trim almost perfectly. Went on quickly and fit perfectly. I was concerned that the magnetic camera mount holding-strength would be weakened by having an extra thick surface between the mount and the camera but it still holds the camera in place very well, even through a windy storm last night. I cannot attest to their longevity as they have only been up for a day but they seem to be a very good quality product. Buying 2 more today in fact.

Fits like a glove
Works just as advertised, fits well. Don't mount your camera before you get this to slip it on though. You need to thread the cord through a hole and I had already (pretty much permanently) mounted the camera to the exterior of the house. I was able to slice the skin open, put it over the camera, and it still works great. Poke out the holes around the microphone if they have not all perforated but otherwise it works well. Hides the camera in the shadows at night, where the white camera stuck out like a soar thumb.

Need more skin in the game. Here's a suggestion.
A very attractive upgrade to the really ugly white. But, hey, Wasserstein! Here's a suggestion for an option that will solve a problem with the Nest Cam. The Nest Cam has a very wide field of view. That can cause problems when auto-notification is turned on. For example, I might want to know only if somebody shows up at the front door. But depending on placement, the Nest Cam will show activity on the street. So, a passing car will generate an email notification. That's irritating. Maybe you can offer a skin that extends out the front of the camera to limit the wide field of view. If it could be adjustable, that's even better.

Company comes through
I received a box that was missing the small magnet cover. I wrote to Wasserstein asking them to just send me a sleeve versus me sending back the box since I wanted to use the skin for the camera since you need to add it before nailing everything in place. After a few back and forth emails, the company accommodated me and sent me another box with both skins even though I only needed the magnet cover. The skins fit the camera well and helps mask a white camera mounted on dark trim. This product made me comfortable buying a white camera for a dark external application.
