Description

Why we like the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor Security Camera

In 2017 Nest introduced the Nest Cam IQ security camera. This was a big upgrade from the original Nest Cam in that it added some amazing artificial intelligence as well as a 4K camera sensor for no-loss zooming in on subjects captured by the camera. But now Nest’s outdoor camera series is getting all of these same goodies in a fully outdoor rated enclosure. Right now this may be the best outdoor smart home security camera on the market.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

Of course the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor will work with Google Assistant since Nest is technically owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet. This integration allows you to quickly ask your Google Home to show your camera on a Chromecast. You can also use Amazon Alexa to do similar on theΒ Fire TV, Fire TV stick, or Echo Show. This is a pretty awesome function for an outdoor camera since most people will have these mounted near their front door. Hear the doorbell? Throw the camera feed on your 65″ OLED TV and see who is there. Is it clearly a door to door salesman? Send them packing by telling them to go away through the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor’s 2-way audio.

Sorry, no Apple Homekit support on the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.

Other Compatibility

The beauty of Nest products is that they all work seamlessly together through Nest’s proprietary Thread protocol. This means that you Nest Secure home security system can use the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor to keep your home secure. The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor does not natively connect with Samsung SmartThings but it does work with the Wink 2 hub if you are trying to bring all of your devices together into one system.

Extra features

The biggest change from the previous Nest Cam Outdoor to the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is the addition of (1) a 4K camera sensor which enables amazing zooming in on subjects without any degradation in stream quality and (2) the ability for the system to recognize specific faces and not strangers. This opens up a lot of capability for the camera to send smarter notifications to your phone whether it knows the person it is seeing or not. This capability needs a subsciption to Nest’s “Nest Aware” monthly subscription, but many people will subscribe to this already to get the 10 or 30 day full motion cloud storage.

The other big change is the mounting hardware. The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor uses a tamper resistant locking mechanism to secure the camera where the old one was just held there via magnets. You won’t have any thieves running off with your camera anytime soon.

Conclusion

Right now there is no more capable outdoor smart security camera than the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor. The addition of the smart zooming and person detection make this a very smart camera indeed. And the full 1080p footage from this camera trounces any of the other competitors right now.

    easy install and works great. So I researched cameras, especially the arlo. The thing that swayed me is the easy install. I drilled a 7/8 hole from above my garage door. The supplied cord was long enough to plug into my garage inside outlet. I love the secure connection through the hole and into the camera. I followed the instructions to the letter, firing it up inside the house, moving it outside to verify wifi strength, and finally attaching the support bracket to my siding over the hole. After plugging it in everything worked great. So there you are – a product that exceeded my expectations. The video quality is good, not great, good. Maybe I expected too much, like TV quality. I’m probably gonna get more nest stuff, because I think that the quality is superb. Even the packaging is so unusually professional that it gives you the impression that great stuff in inside. And the insides lived up to the promise. Im starting to sound like a paid review, but Im just an old dude who wanted to enhance security around my house. And I think I made the right choice. Have a nice day.

    Perfect! Easy to set up, a dream to use. Installation was very fast and easy – the NestCam paired with my existing Protect in a few seconds. Mounting only took a few minutes, and needed only a screwdriver. Video quality and responsiveness is excellent. The Nest app gives me a view of my home’s surroundings and alerts me when folks come up the walkway. And I can keep an eye on nighttime critters, too.

    Easy Peesy. When you need a camera in a hurry, the nest is the way to go. From the time I purchased my first camera to the time a was viewing it on my iPhone, it was not more than one hour. One helpful hint, make sure you have someone to help you only to hold the ladder.

    Since then I have installed 5 and counting.

    So good!!!

    Amazing camera. This is one great camera! The video quality is amazing (upgraded from analog security camera system) and the night mode is very clear and well “lit” (with infrared light-invisible to the naked eye at night).

    I’m amazed by the signal quality considering it’s located on my detached garage wall far away from my wifi router which is inside the house, through two stucco walls (cement and wire mesh).

    Easy setup. Good quality. I love the Google ecosystem. They finally lowered the price, but it needs to be lower with a greater number of cameras…I know about the 50% off after the first, but still not low enough. Should be 75% off after the fourth or something like that.
