Nest Cam IQ heads outside.

Nest Cam IQ brought state-of-the-art smarts to indoor security cameras. And now, we’re bringing that same intelligence outdoors, with the Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera now available in the United Kingdom.

Nest Cam IQ brought state-of-the-art smarts to indoor security cameras. And now, we're bringing that same intelligence outdoors, with the Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera now available in the United Kingdom.

Like its indoor cousin, Nest Cam IQ outdoor can tell a person from something else and send an alert if someone's there. So you won't worry needlessly about a swaying tree in the front garden or a petunia on your doorstep. And with Nest Aware, a subscription service that adds intelligence and video storage, Nest Cam IQ can recognise a familiar face and can even help you spot strangers.1

It's tough enough to stand up to rain, snow and wind with heavy-duty weatherproofing. And the power cable is hidden, so it's tamper-resistant and secure on the side of your house.

And just like the indoor version, Nest Cam IQ includes Supersight. With its 4K digital sensor, HDR and 1080p HD video, Supersight lets you zoom in up to 12x and get an enhanced view of a specific area, like your driveway. It can also automatically zoom in and follow a person walking across your lawn. And show you a close-up tracking shot with a wide 130° view.

Bark! Who goes there?

If Nest Cam IQ detects a dog barking or a person talking, it can send you an alert. Then you can check the Nest app to see and hear what's happening out there. If someone's hanging around your property, ask them what they want or tell them to leave. HD Talk and listen uses Nest Cam IQ's speaker, a three-microphone system, noise suppression and echo cancellation to make sure the conversation is clear and seamless.

Your first line of defence.

Intruders don't ever want to be seen on camera. So when they spot Nest Cam IQ at your door, it can scare them off. If they even try to break in, you can send a video clip2 to the police - which might help catch them quicker. So it's bad news for bad guys.

More intelligent Nest Aware alerts.

Nest Aware customers also have access to two new features. Person Alerts now work together with Activity Zones so you can receive an alert when there is a person detected in a specific zone that you've setup. And if you have a Nest Cam IQ indoor or outdoor camera, Nest Aware will now be able to merge duplicate familiar faces of the same person within your Nest app.

So don't miss those important moments. With more flexible options and precise, effortless monitoring, keeping track of what's up at home - and what went down - has never been easier.
