Explore Nest Cam.

  1. Look for the light

    Nest Cam is on.

    Blinking green means someone’s watching.

    Blinking blue means someone’s talking through the speaker. You’ll also hear a little chime before and after. 

  2. Mic

    Pick up sounds clearly up to 20 feet away.

    Speaker

    Hear a chime if someone is about to speak. Then listen to what they have to say.

  1. All-glass lens

    Other cameras use cheap plastic lenses, but Nest Cam’s all­-glass lens gives you a clear 130° view without having to pan or zoom.

  2. Photo-quality sensor

    Nest Cam’s 1/3 inch, three megapixel sensor is made up of large, high­-quality pixels so you can see every little detail, day or night.

  3. Infrared LEDs

    Get balanced color and exposure during the day. And see up to 20 feet at night thanks to eight high-power 850nm infrared LEDs.

  1. Dual-band Wi-Fi

    Nest Cam uses 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies to stream full 1080p video without overloading your Wi‑Fi connection.

  2. Better bandwidth

    H.264 compression means most home Internet connections can support three to four Nest Cams without slowing down.

  3. Secure streaming

    Your home – and video – should be private. That’s why Nest Cam uses 128-bit AES with TLS/SSL encryption, Perfect Forward Secrecy and a unique 2048-bit RSA key.
