Many people have outdoor cameras but forget about the indoor camera. Protect the inside of your castle with the Google Nest Cam IQ Indoor camera. Monitor intruders and engage them with the built-in speaker and microphone. Curious as to what your pets are up to or how they act when you leave? Live in an apartment and not sure how often maintenance enters your apartment when you are not there? With night vision you can see the inside of your home when the lights are off. You might even discover you’re a sleepwalker or have a ghost in your home that only comes out at night!

You can watch all the action even when you are away from home! Download the app and you can have full access to your camera from anywhere that has internet access (Wi-Fi or data plan). The camera will alert you to movements and sounds. With Nest Aware, it will even tell you if it is grandma or a stranger that just walked in!

What it can do:

  • See! With a 12x digital zoom, it is a lot more advanced than many of its competitors. When the Indoor IQ sees a person, special algorithms allow the camera to automatically zoom in and follow the action on the app.
  • Nest Cam IQ has serious processing power, so it can do things like tell a person from a thing. And even recognize faces with Nest Aware. The Familiar Faces Recognition feature available with Nest Aware allows the Indoor IQ to distinguish between previously-recognized visitors and strangers, which should reduce the incidence of false alarms.
  • Ask it questions and get answers with Google Assistant built-in!
  • A 4K sensor, 12x digital zoom and HDR imaging offer extra clear video.
  • For no monthly charge, Nest offers the ability to view the past 3 hours of snapshots.
  • Works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Hue, and Nest
  • All data is encrypted and stored in the cloud, so if the camera is damaged, the recorded video is still available up to that point.
