Google Nest Cam (Battery)
The battery-powered security camera with smarts.
Check in at any time.
Know what’s happening at home 24/7. Nest Cam shows you live video in 1080p HD, so you can check up on things whenever you want, from anywhere.
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 event video history. And you can always add a Nest Aware subscription to get up to 60 days of video history.
Talk to who’s there, from anywhere.
Talk and listen to people through the built-in speaker and mic. Tell your dog to get off the couch, or say hi to your family, just for fun.
Get alerts about the things that matter most.
Nest Cam will send you an alert when it spots movement, a person or a vehicle. You can choose which alerts you get, so you’re only notified about things that are important to you.
Know if there’s a person nearby.
Nest Cam can tell the difference between a person or thing. If it sees a person, you’ll get an alert on your phone.
Install it yourself.
Nest Cam is battery powered, so installation is easy. You can put it almost anywhere you want, indoors or out. And you don’t need to install it near an outlet.
Requires the Google Home app and a Google Account – not compatible with the Nest app or the home.nest.com site.
