Opinion: The voice from our Nest camera threatened to steal our baby


Then the nanny texted that a voice was coming through the kitchen camera and using bad words.

I immediately pulled up the video feed and began reviewing:

I hear the familiar chime, which means someone is about to talk through the camera. Then, to my horror, a female voice that I don't recognize starts talking to my 18-month-old son. He looks around the room and then at the ceiling, wondering who's there.

It feels as though my heart is about to beat through my chest. The blood rushes to my face. I am completely helpless.

The voice is laughing when it chimes in. She says we have a nice house and encourages the nanny to respond. She does not. The voice even jokes that she hopes we don't change our password. I am sick to my stomach.
