Nest Cam IQ Outdoor Security Camera
Wireless outdoor security camera (2 pack)
Our take on the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor Security Camera by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor camera lets you check in at home via a free app on your smartphone.
Keep two sharp eyes on your home or business
This two-pack of Nest Cam IQ Outdoor cameras provides two weatherproof units, so you can get a clear picture of what's going on outside your home or business. The camera's 8-megapixel image sensor with HDR (high dynamic range) and 12X pinch-to-zoom capability give you a fantastic view. An array of infrared LED lights even lets you see in the dark.
After you plug in the camera and launch the Nest app on your phone, you'll be streaming live video and receiving alerts in moments. The Nest Cam IQ is your eyes, ears and even your voice when you're away from home — each camera has a microphone and speaker built in, so you can verbally check in with kids, elderly parents or pets while you're at work. It can even recognize faces.
Note: The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor uses the included USB cord for power, but communicates with your device wirelessly.
Subscription-based cloud storage
The camera streams live video 24/7, but you'll likely want to save clips for later review. Nest Aware offers subscription-based cloud storage packages that automatically archive a 10-day history ($10/month or $100/year) or a 30-day history ($30/month or $300/year). Nest Aware also offers advanced services like person alerts, alert history, personalized alerts for different zones, and an ability to create time lapse videos to show changes throughout the day.
Part of your whole-home Nest system
The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is compatible with other Nest home automation devices:
Your Nest devices work together to give you more control over home security. If your smoke detector sends you an alert while you're at work, you can turn on your Nest camera and assess the situation instantly, then use the camera's microphone and speakers to warn anyone who might be home. Even better, if your Nest Protect senses rising levels of carbon monoxide, your Nest Thermostat can automatically turn off your connected gas furnace.
