Get Alerts that Matter to You
Nest Cam shows you what’s happening at home, and alerts you when it spots a person, animal or vehicle.² It can even recognize familiar faces and tell you who’s coming and going.³
Talk to Who's There, Even When You're Not
Nest Cam helps you know that things are OK at home. If something happens, it alerts you, so you can decide to take action right from the Google Home app. Talk and listen through the camera, and if you need some help, you can call your local emergency service directly from the app.⁴
Outdoors or Indoors. Rain or Shine
With no wires, Nest Cam is designed to go anywhere. It’s battery-powered and weather-resistant. Put it on the exterior of your house to check in on the yard. Or put it inside your home to check in on the dog or your family. An available stand makes it easy to set up wherever you want.⁵
See Clearly in Any Light
HDR helps you see key details in bright, high-contrast sunlight and night vision gives you a clear image even in low light and darkness.
Go Back in Time
If you miss a notification or other event, you can go back and see what happened with 3 hours of free event video history.⁶ And you can always add a Nest Aware subscription to get up to 60 days of video history.
Wi-Fi Problems? Not a Problem
If your Wi-Fi goes down or there’s a power outage, Nest Cam will automatically store up to one hour of recorded events in its memory.⁷ When things are up and running again, you’ll be able to see exactly what happened.
Protect Your Privacy
Nest Cam uses encrypted video, two-step verification, and enhanced security through your Google Account to help protect your privacy. And a green LED light lets you know when the camera is processing or streaming video. Home & Away Routines give you the option of automatically turning your camera off when you’re home, so no video is streamed or recorded until you leave.
