Overview: Nest Cam Outdoor is a small, outdoor camera that can help you keep
an eye on your home or office. This weatherproof security camera can stream live 1080p Full HD video to your
computer, or to an iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Two-way audio lets you hear
what's going on, and allows you to talk to persons through the camera. It works as a standalone
home surveillance camera, or in conjunction
with the Nest Cam Indoor, Nest Protect Smoke and CO alarm, and the Nest Thermostat. The
Nest Cam Outdoor comes with a 25' power cable, cable clips, and a magnetic wall
mount with hardware.
High Definition Video: Nest Cam Outdoor has an all-glass
lens to give you the best image possible. It has a wide 130° angle of view, so
you can see the entire area around your doors or windows. In the Nest app, you
can zoom in up to 8x to get a closer look. Built-in Night Vision lets you see
things clearly at night.
Installing: Nest Cam Outdoor mounts to a 1-7/16" diameter
magnetic wall mount. The back of the camera is rounded, which allows you to
position the camera at virtually any angle. It is recommended that the camera is
mounted between 7' and 10' above the ground or floor, tilted downward. It should
be close enough to see a person's face and to communicate with them through the
camera. Nest Cam Outdoor requires AC power from a nearby power outlet, either
outdoor or indoor. If there is no outdoor outlet, you may have to drill through
your home's exterior wall. The camera streams audio and video via Wi-Fi (802.11
b/g/n), and should be mounted within range of your router.
Nest App: You can view streaming video from your Nest Cam
on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device through the free Nest App. The app is
compatible with Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) running iOS 8.0 or later. It is also compatible with all Samsung
devices running Android 4.1 or later. The Nest application for laptops and
desktop computers is available for Windows 7 or later, Mac OS X v10.9 or later,
with the latest versions of Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.
Nest Aware: Nest Cam Outdoor lets you view live streaming on
your computer or mobile device. You can check in anytime to see what's
happening, and see photos of activity from the last three hours. The optional Nest Aware service with Video
History lets you
save the past 10 or 30 days of video footage in the cloud for review at any time.
The service can create a time lapse of an event, or of an entire day, that you
can watch in 60 seconds. You can make and save clips to share with friends or
family. Custom activity zones can be created to keep an eye on specific areas in
your home. As of September 2016, Nest Aware rates start at $10/month or
$100/year for 10
days of video history and $30/month or $300/year for 30 days.
Works With Nest: When Nest Cam Outdoor is added to a home network
that includes Nest products, additional features are available. If the Nest
Protect Smoke and CO Detector sounds an Emergency Alarm, all of the Nest Cams
will turn on and start recording video automatically. The recording will
continue for 1 hour, or until the Nest Protect senses that the smoke or carbon
monoxide has subsided. When paired with a Nest Thermostat, the Nest Cams in your
home can be set to automatically turn on when you switch to the Away setting on
the Thermostat. When you return, and manually set the Thermostat to the Home
setting, the Nest Cams will automatically turn off. This feature does not work
with Nest Thermostat's Auto-Away feature.
Activity Alerts: Nest Cam Outdoor can detect and alert you to either
motion in your video or sound picked up by the microphone on the camera. When
activity is detected, or if Nest Cam is offline, an alert is sent to your mobile
device (through the Nest App), or to your Nest Cam account.
