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.

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.

Security from front to back. And everywhere in between.

Nest Cam IQ outdoor is tough security on its own. And it may deter intruders from even breaking in. But when you add the Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Cam IQ indoor cameras, the Nest Hello video doorbell and Works with Nest products, your home can be covered from the outside in.

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