About the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight

Motion-triggered floodlights and camera
This 2-megapixel security camera has powerful floodlights and three hours of free event history storage.
This Google Nest Cam can light up your outdoor space and show you what's going on day or night. The bright built-in floodlights give you double-edged convenience — lighting your way hands-free when you step out at night and discouraging bad guys from further approach. And you can see who's triggered the motion sensor right on your phone, tablet, or laptop.
Hardwired for power
This camera must be wired directly to your home's AC power. That means you may want to have an electrician install it you're not comfortable working with wiring. But the advantage is that you'll have constant coverage 24/7, with no need to recharge batteries. Download the free Google Home app, power up the camera and floodlight, and add it to your home network.
Within the app, you can draw and select different areas within the camera's frame. That means you can exclude every car that drives by, for example, and include only the ones that pull into your driveway.
You can also set it up to send you other customized alerts. Maybe you just want to know what's happening every day at 3 p.m. Or maybe you want an alert whenever a person approaches your back door, but don't need one for every bird or squirrel — your camera can use its smarts to recognize whether the object in the frame is a person, animal, or vehicle.
Better backup options
Like with most wireless cameras, you can check out the live view anytime you want. But this Nest Cam will also capture and securely store up to three hours of footage for free. If you stop to think about how many roughly 30-second events that includes, you might think twice before you decide to extend your video history with a cloud-based Nest Aware subscription (sold separately). But Nest Aware does do more than expand your storage — it also adds cool features like sound detection and the ability to recognize familiar faces.

More details on the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight
Overview: The Google Nest Cam and Floodlight (GA02411-US) is an outdoor security camera with dual aimable LED floodlights. The floodlight fixture is hardwired to an existing outdoor electrical junction box, and the camera mounts magnetically to the fixture. Both LED floodlights and the camera can be aimed to suit your needs. The camera is 3-1/4" in diameter and 3-1/4" deep. Each floodlight is 3" in diameter and 2-3/4" deep.
Full HD Video: The Nest Cam and Floodlight has a wide 130° angle of view, so you can see a wide area of the room. The camera is equipped with a 1/2.8-inch, 2-megapixel color image sensor to give you detailed 1080p images at 30 fps. HDR (high dynamic range) combines multiple images to give you clear images in low-lit areas. In the Google Home app, you can use the 6x digital zoom to get a closer look. The camera is equipped with six high-power 850nm infrared LEDs to let you see in total darkness up to 20 feet away. Two-way audio lets you hear what's going on, and allows you to talk to persons through the camera.
Floodlights: The dual floodlights have a color temperature of 4000K and a maximum brightness of 2400 lumens. The brightness is adjustable in the Google Home app. You can also set up schedules and routines for turning the floodlights on and off.
Motion Detection: The Google Nest Cam has a single motion sensor with a 110° horizontal field of view. The camera can detect motion up to 25 feet away, and send out a notification to your phone or Alexa or Google Assistant-enabled device. In addition, the Floodlights have two motion sensors that provide a 180° field of view, and can detect motion up to 25 feet. You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensors in the Google Home app.
Installing: Google Nest Cam and Floodlight mounts to an existing outdoor floodlight fixture. The package comes with a 5" round mounting plate (with a ground screw) and cover for mounting the floodlight fixture. The camera attaches to the fixture via a powerful magnet, which allows you to aim the camera in any direction. The two floodlights are mounted on a ball-and-socket joint for pointing each light to the areas you wish to illuminate. The camera streams audio and video via Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz, 5GHz), and should be mounted within range of your router. The internet connection should have at least 2 Mbps upload speed.
Power Requirements: The Nest Cam and Floodlight replaces an existing wired floodlight and hardwires into the existing electrical junction box (100-240V, 50/60Hz). This powers the floodlights and keeps the 3.65V 6Ah battery in the camera charged through the special magnetic plug from the floodlight fixture to the camera.
Construction: The Nest Cam and Floodlight is constructed with at least 41% recycled content across its plastic parts.
Activity Zones: Activity Zones let you customize the areas that you'd like to monitor with the Nest Cam. They can help prevent false alarms caused by swaying trees or moving shadows. You can "draw" the shape of the zone you want to monitor when setting up the zone on your mobile device. You can also choose the types of events you want to record, and the alerts you want to receive. Up to 4 activity zones per camera can be set up and named to make it easier to know where the event took place.
Detection Settings: The Nest Cam uses AI to distinguish people from cars or animals. Intelligent alerts are delivered to your phone or Google Assistant-enabled speaker/monitor that identifies what triggered the alert: person seen, animal seen, vehicle seen, etc. With a Nest Aware subscription, the Familiar Face feature can even teach the camera to identify the faces of your friends and acquantances.
Note: The Familiar Face feature is not available for Nest cameras and doorbells installed in Illinois.
Video History: The Nest Cam and Floodlight captures and stores video clips of activity that happened within the past 3 hours. With a subscription to Nest Aware, you can extend that to up to 60 days. The Nest Cam can provide a live view 24/7, as well as record triggered events. If you need continuous video recording (for up to 10 days max), you'll need to plug in the camera to a constant power source, and subscribe to Nest Aware Plus.
Nest Aware: A paid subscription to Nest Aware provides additional features to your Nest Cam. It extends the event video history beyond the 3 hours that comes with the doorbell to 30 days for Nest Aware, or 60 days for Nest Aware Plus. A Nest Aware subscription starts at $6.00 per month, while Nest Aware Plus is $12.00/month. Annual subscriptions are $60/year (save $12 annually) and $120/year (save $24 annually), respectively.
Google Home App: The Google Nest Cam and Floodlight must be set up, managed, and controlled using the Google Home app. On the app, you can view what's happening inside or outside your home, receive notifications, and view recorded videos. Notifications can be received on your phone, and on your Google Assistant-enable speakers (Nest Mini) and displays (Nest Hub). You can configure activity zones, and change detection settings. The Google Home app is available for Android devices running version 6.0 and up. It can also be used with Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices running iOS 12.0 or later.
