Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera

Your first line of defence.

Nest Cam IQ is a powerhouse of brains and brawn. Weatherproof. Tamper resistant. And seriously sharp. So it can help you find out 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 15 metres (50 feet) away, then alert you with a photo of who's there. With Nest Aware, it can even recognise a familiar face.1

Vision so visionary that 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 won't disappear or be lost in the shadows.

Looks can be a deterrent.

Many burglars can be deterred just by the sight of a camera. Nest Cam IQ is designed to show them that you're serious.
