Mighty. Smart.

Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera

Your first line of defense.

Nest Cam IQ is a powerhouse of brains and brawn. Weatherproof. Tamper-resistant. And seriously sharp. So it can help you know about a break-in before it happens.

Insight for outside.

Good insight starts with incredible sight. Nest Cam IQ can detect a person up to 50 feet away, then alert you with a photo of who’s there. With Nest Aware, it can even recognize a familiar face.*

Vision so visionary we call it Supersight.

What do you get when you combine a 4K sensor with HDR and intelligent imaging? Supersight. It’s 1080p HD with superpowers.

Close-up tracking view

Cut to the chase. If Nest Cam IQ sees a person, special algorithms automatically zoom in and follow the action in the app.

12x digital zoom and enhance

Keep a close eye on somewhere specific. With a 4K sensor, it can zoom in up to 12x and enhance for a crisp picture.

Daytime HDR

Nest Cam IQ combines multiple 4K images to even out challenging lighting conditions. So details don’t get blown out or lost in the shadows.

Looks can be deterring.

A lot of burglars can be deterred just by the sight of a camera. Nest Cam IQ is designed to show them you’re serious.
