This is Nest’s most popular camera for a reason. A 1080p sensor, stellar build quality and compatibility with pretty much everything under the sun make this a great pick for an indoor security camera.

Description

Why we like the Nest Cam Indoor security camera

First off, the quality on this camera is unparalleled. There are tonnes of other cameras on the market, but the Nest Cam Indoor is still king in terms of clarity of image, audio quality on the speaker and evenness of the infrared night mode.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

The Nest Cam Indoor has full support of both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant via Google Home or your phone. On Google Home they have recently added the ability to cast your Nest Cam feed to your Android TV or Chromecast enabled TV. And it works!

Other Compatibility

The Nest Cam Indoor is fully supported in IFTTT which allows for some unique automations with other smart home gadgets. It is also fully supported in Stringify if you want to do something a bit more complicated. And it goes without saying that the Nest Cam is certified “Works with Nest” which will allow the camera to seemlessly communicate with other nest products like the Nest Learning Thermostat or Nest Protect smoke alarm.

Extra features

Nest differentiates its cameras from the rest with their excellent “Home/Away Assist” mode which is amazingly good at learning when you are away from home via other Nest products and your cell phone’s location. In our tests we haven’t seen another camera system match this. And if you are willing to pay a monthly fee, you can purchase Nest Aware, which gives you full motion recordings to the cloud for 10 or 30 days. It sure beats small choppy clips from other cameras!

Conclusion

If you’re in the market for a new smart home security camera, you can’t go wrong with the Nest Cam Indoor. It isn’t quite as feature rich as its bigger cousin, the Nest Cam IQ, but it is the perfect pick for most people’s homes.

Outdoor home security cameras have changed a lot in recent years. A market that was once limited to a few manufacturers has since exploded into an industry full of options. That's great news for us as customers, but it can make the buying process a bit...

    Great quality. Better than the Arlo if you want continuous recording. I don’t love having to pay every month, but for the quality it is worth it.

    High Quality Camera/Notification System. Summary:
    The Nest indoor 1080p WiFi cam is a great product once you take the time to go through setup and get your notifications configured just the way you want them. It works seamlessly with the iPhone app to make for a great visual alarm system. I would recommend this product for anyone wanting to keep an eye on their house while away.

    In The Box:
    The Nest camera comes very well packaged with everything you need to get up an running. The camera itself, magnetic mount, mounting steel (in case you want to mount it on a wall or something not metal), a nice long power supply cord (doubles as a USB connecting cable), mounting screws, and quick start guide

    Build Quality:
    The camera feels like about as high quality as one could ask for in an electronic device. I have owner numerous other indoor WiFi cameras and this one is by far the most well built. The magnetic mount is also very strong allowing you to feel at ease about mounting it just about anywhere.

    Setup:
    I had some issues with setup (which is the only reason I went four stars rather than five). I followed the instructions and downloaded the app on my iPhone 6S and then connected the camera. It recognized the camera just find, it just would not connect it to my wireless network. The app recognized it was having issues and instructed me to plug it into the computer via supplied USB cable. I did so and again followed instructions and failed. I decided to try one last time before contacting customer support and it finally connected and has been running great since.

    Image:
    Image quality is crisp and clear both day and night. If there is a specific area you would like to focus in on within the camera view you are able to zoom and refocus on that area.

    Sound:
    The microphone worked great both directions. Given the size of the unit, I didn’t expect much from the transmission from app to device, but it actually was quite loud and clear for my test subject to hear my voice.

    App:
    The app is great. It took me a bit to configure so I didn’t get a thousand notifications when my wife was home, but I wasn’t. Now it is great. My phone tells the app if either my wife or I are home or not and sends us notifications if we are away and it detects a human shape. I don’t know about android, but it works seamlessly with iOS. It is very configurable from within the app. You can adjust everything from focus to whether or not you want the indicator light on the camera on or off. The free features are perfect for my needs, but for a minimal fee you can add the cloud storage service. It saves either 10 or 30 days of video depending upon the pricing package you purchase. You get a 30 day trial with your camera purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Easy set up and user friendly… It took about 10 minutes for the complete set up.
    There was a glitch when adding a family member to access the camera, contacted customer service and they made it work. customer service was also great

    Nest Cam indoor. Download the App (Google Play store for me) open the box, plug it in, very simple to use
    As most technology these days, the nest cam is very simple to set up, the step by step guide in the app is simple to follow and will have your camera working in 5 minutes
    The video quality is great and (in my situation) I am able to stream the video to my TV VIA Chromecast.

    I have a child and before I got this Nest cam we had got a baby monitor for the same price, waking up at say 3am in the morning squinting your eyes to view the tiny screen that came with it, if I could go back in time I would have got a nest cam indoor and used it instead, hook it up via chromecast to my TV and you have a large screen picture of your child (with audio) that is easy to see, when we no longer need the baby monitor, I’m sure we will give it away, but if we had a nest cam we could move it to a different room and use it as a security cam.

    Cant rate the cam high enough, we will be getting another one very soon.

    Awesome device. I bought the camera just because I wanted it without any real defined purpose in mind. Set it up to watch my dogs during the day, let it run for a few weeks and then disconnected it and put it away. It was working perfectly but I didn’t really ‘need’ it. Then my Mom had to go into hospice and was fortunate enough to be able to come live in my house with me. The camera came back out and was set up so I can monitor her at any time without having to knock on her door and maybe wake her up or disturb her. It’s so nice that my sister can also check on her from her home whenever she wants. What started out as just a cool nerdy gadget for me has become a truly important piece of equipment which allows my Mom to have as much of her own space as she wants AND allows me the peace of mind knowing that I can check on her with either my computer or phone. Mom thinks its SUPER and has told many of her friends about it and feels it would be a great benefit for people with older parents who live alone.

    Excellent all round winner. Love this camera, it’s meant for indoor recording but we have it pointing out our kitchen window to record our driveway and two cars. Clear picture, brilliant alerts to both our phones and on to my iPad when I have it so can check what’s been detected and also live time viewing if want it have. Look at what’s going on
