Shopify and Nest Offer Retailers Better Security and Connectivity With New Hardware

Shopify and Nest Cam | Shopify Retail blogFinding the right tools to power your store can be an intimidating prospect.

But thanks to Shopify’s latest partnership with Google and Nest, merchants in the U.S. and Canada can get a range of new high-tech tools to make selling in person easier than ever.

Prevent Theft and Monitor Your Store With the Nest Cam

Shoplifting and theft make up the bulk of a $45 billion annual problem for retailers. And while retailers employ a wealth of loss prevention strategies to curb theft, typical losses still hover around 2% of annual sales.

That’s where a high-tech solution can help. Security cameras are a proven loss prevention method — which is why Shopify partnered with Google’s Nest to offer retailers one of the best cloud-based Wifi camera systems available. Merchants can now get access to a live look at what’s going on in their store right from their Shopify dashboard.

Google’s Nest Cam offers the security of live-stream footage paired with a simple design. Many security systems are bulky, expensive, and require a professional to install and maintain. But the Nest Cam system is both affordable and easy enough to set up yourself — saving you precious time and hard-earned profits.

In addition to keeping your store more secure, you can use Shopify’s Store Cam integration to check on your store from anywhere. Using the Shopify app, you can remotely monitor in-store activity, making it easy to regularly check in. Merchants can buy Google’s Nest Cam hardware directly from Shopify to get set up quickly and easily.

Get your store a Nest Cam starting at just $199USD/$249 CAD.
