Google Nest Cam IQ Outdoor


The Google Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera is thoughtful about how and when it alerts you. It uses advanced algorithms to tell a person from a thing, and then automatically zooms in and follows him or her in the app. Its 4K sensor, HDR, and 12x digital zoom and enhance show everything in crisp 1080p HD. And it’s got a powerful speaker and mic so you can let intruders know you’re paying attention. With a Google Nest Aware subscription, Nest Cam IQ can even recognize faces and save all your video.*

*Video streaming, video recording and mobile notifications require working internet and Wi-Fi. Familiar face alerts are not available on cameras used in Illinois.
