Your home is your castle. Protect it with a Google Nest Cam IQ Outdoor camera. See who steps foot onto your property and engage them with the built-in speaker and microphone. Curious as to what wildlife wanders through the night? With night vision you can see all the critters that sneak around. Have a playset or pool in the backyard? Now you can check in and see if the kids are behaving! Want to make sure the kids got home from school? You can watch them walk up the driveway.

You can do all of these things 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 your friend or a stranger in your driveway! Want to know what the weather is like at home? Look at your app!

What it can do:

  • See! With a 12x digital zoom and enhance, it is a lot more advanced than many of its competitors. When the Outdoor IQ sees a person, special algorithms allow the camera to automatically zoom in and follow the action on the app. The Outdoor IQ is smart enough to keep persons in view!
  • The Outdoor IQ can detect a person 50 feet away and alert you with a picture of who is there. The Familiar Faces Recognition feature available with Nest Aware allows the Outdoor IQ to distinguish between previously-recognized visitors and strangers, which should reduce the incidence of false alarms.
  • Want to keep an eye on something specific? The Outdoor IQ can digitally zoom in 12x and enhance for a crisp picture… thanks to a 4K sensor.
  • Daytime HDR uses multiple 4K images to compensate tough lighting situations so details are not lost.
  • It can handle cold and warm weather with operational temperatures from -40F to 113F.
  • For no monthly charge, Nest offers the ability to view the past 3 hours of snapshots.
  • 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.


  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4GHz or 5GHz (WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption supported).
  • Working broadband internet connection with at least 2 Mbps upload speed recommended (DSL may not qualify).
