The Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera is thoughtful about how and when it alerts you. It uses advanced algorithms to tell a person from something else and then automatically zooms in and follows that person in the app. Its 4K sensor, HDR and 12x digital zoom show everything in crisp 1080p HD. And it has a powerful speaker and mic, so you can let intruders know that you're paying attention. With a Nest Aware subscription (sold separately), Nest Cam IQ can even recognise faces and save all your video.*
*Video streaming, video recording with Nest Aware and mobile notifications require working Internet and Wi-Fi.

Write a review for: Nest Cam IQ Outdoor Security Camera
These are expensive cameras, especially when you factor in the Nest Aware subscription that you will probably want with them. Without the subscription you do get limited features, but for example you won't get facial recognition which is one of the selling points of this. Having said this, it is well worth the money.
The images, even in black and white when in night mode, are super sharp and the app is so slick to use. I have 3 cameras and all 3 were set up and installed within an hour. The best feature is the close up tracking, which seems as though there's an operator following people around and doing close-ups. It's scary how good it is. I also love that it detects people, not just movement, so no more getting alerts just because a pesky spider has decided to crawl across the camera!
One more point, these use a LOT of bandwidth, so make sure you have a truly unlimited broadband package if you intend to run multiple cameras.
Ease of use
Value for money
