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.1
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.

Nest is outdoor camera is great
It does a great job of differentiating between people I know, people I don't know, and non people. I love that you can set different alerts for different situations. For example, I have mine alert me about people I do not know only when I am not home. An excellent feature!Read more

I have been impressed thus far (2 months in) with the camera and am even looking for more cameras to monitor the other parts of my residence.Read more
