The Nest way
The wrong way
24/7 live streaming
Nest Cam plugs in so it doesn’t run out of power. And you can check in as much as you want.
Cameras that rely on batteries give you limited streaming to conserve power. And what happens if they die when you’re on vacation?
24/7 continuous recording
With Nest Aware, you see the full story, not just part of what happened.
Records event snippets
Some cameras only record if they sense motion. But if they miss something, you will too.
With Nest Aware, Nest Cam can tell the difference between a person and a thing. So you get alerts you care about.
Some cameras can only tell if there’s motion, so you don’t know the difference between a person and a tree swaying.
Hear what’s happening and let a stranger know you’re paying attention.
So you can’t listen in or talk to get someone’s attention.
Crisp 1080p video
Nest Cam’s high-quality glass lens, image sensor and 8x digital Clear Zoom let you see every detail in full 1080p HD.
Some cameras say they have HD, but their sensors and plastic lenses give you a lower image quality.
Bright, clear Night Vision
Eight infrared LEDs help you see the whole view, even when it’s pitch black.
Grainy video at night
Some cameras give you a pixelated spotlight view when it’s dark.
Quick, easy setup
Nest Cam Outdoor is designed for simple setup. Just plug in the cable and adapter, mount the camera and go.
That may require tangles of cables, remote hubs and drilling through walls.
With Nest Aware, Nest Cam safely and securely stores your video history in the cloud, so you can access it anytime.
If a camera stores video on a memory card and is stolen, there’s no way to go back and see what happened.
Shared live streams
Create public or password-protected live streams to share with family, neighbors or the whole world.
No shared live streams
So if you want to share what’s going on, you have to give away your password.
Check in from all devices
Sign in to the Nest app anytime from a phone, tablet or laptop. And watch the live feed on your Apple TV or Android TV.
Check in from one device
Some cameras can only stream to one device. But what if you lose your phone or want to check in from your laptop?
