More Information

When you're away from home, a whole host of things can happen. From the unthinkable like a break-in to wish-I-were-there moments like your toddler dancing to the radio, there's lots you can miss when you're not home. For a sense of security and ability to stay connected to your home, there's Nest Cam.

Nest Cam is a stand-alone IP camera that works over your home's internet connection to record footage and enable remote surveillance from your mobile device. Install one near the front door to record the comings and goings in your home, put one in the nursery as a baby monitor, or affix one to the refrigerator to watch your mischievous dog in the kitchen. Nest Cam can keep an eye on things when you're not around.

What you need to know:

  • 24/7 live video streaming: This wireless stand-alone IP camera works over your home's WiFi network, so you can access live and recorded footage from the Nest app on your compatible mobile device (phone or tablet with iOS 7 or later, or Android 4 or later).
  • Alerts on your phone: When Nest Cam detects motion, it'll send a notification to your smartphone if you have motion alerts turned on.
  • Night vision: Night vision LED sensors enable a clear view when it's dark, so you can see everything that's going on, even if the lights are out.
  • Talk and listen: 2-way audio records sound and allows you to communicate with family members or pets at home.
  • Easy setup: Nest Cam is so easy to install; simply plug it in and set it up from your phone. You can stand it on a table, mount it to a wall, set it on a tripod (sold separately), or stick it to a metal surface thanks to its built-in magnet.
  • Nest Aware: Get a 30-day free trial to Nest Aware, a subscription service that records 24/7 footage and saves it to the cloud, so you can play it back and see what you missed. It also features advanced motion sensing, highlights moments where there is motion or sound, focuses on important areas, and even allows you to create timelapse videos and save clips.The free trial records up to 30 days of continuous footage.
  • Your data is secure: Nest Cam uses bank-level data security to ensure your video remains private.
  • See the bigger picture: Wide 130-degree vertical and horizontal viewing angles give you a broad picture of the room, while 8x optical zoom lets you get in close on the action.
  • Crystal-clear recording: The camera's CMOS sensor records in crystal-clear Full HD 1080p resolution, so you get a great view of what's going on in your home. Choose from scheduled or triggered recording.
  • Works with Nest: Nest Cam automatically works with other Nest products, including Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect. It automatically turns on when Nest Thermostat is set to Away, and starts recording if Nest Protect detects smoke.
  • Wired power: Nest Cam operates with the included power adapter, and comes with a 10-foot USB cable for versatile placement.

Works Great!

I purchased a nest camera as I already had a nest thermostat. The setup takes only a few minutes and the quality and ease of use of the app and camera are great. Having the camera recording to the cloud, while requiring a subscription fee, provides peace of mind as you know what no matter what, as long as your camera has internet, it is able to save its data.

Infrared useless behind a window pane.

Resolution and overall picture quality is excellent. BUT the camera will switch automatically to infrared mode at night so if the camera is monitoring your driveway from behind a glass, all you see is the reflection of the infrared lights. Also the cloud service is NOT free as advertised on internet sites.

Love it

Great for watching the kids and making sure they get home ok. Love the alerts on my phone. Bought one and about to buy a second.

Not worth the money.

Not very dependable. Gives false alerts to many times even with changing a few different locations. Also didn't know you had to sign up for a yearly subscription to view the history. Also if you have an iPhone Adobe Flash won't work. Please Nest make it better. Your other products I have are satisfactory. Plus it gets very hot to the touch even when its not turned on. Could be a big power drain.

Nest camera

I recently bought 3 Nest cameras for home monitoring. I am not much of computer guy but found it pretty straightforward to get the cameras up and running. I read on reviewer that complained about the infrared picture. Not sure about him/her, but my cameras work excellently in IR mode, complete with good object movement. The picture resolution is good, good enough to positively ID anyone caught on the camera. All motion is pretty good, only occasionally is the picture "jerky". My only criticism of the Nest cameras is the incompatibility with Apple productions. Apple does not support Flash so you simply cannot use an Apple product with the Nest cameras. This is a shame. I am still in the free trial period with Nest but I will subscribe to the 10 day capture of data plan once my free trial is up. Some my find having to pay for 10 days of data unacceptable, but personally, nothing comes for free anymore and I am more concerned with security issues and a small fee is more than worth the peace of mind.

Best Buy that I've made

Great camera, purchased them due to wifes medical issues, I can now monitor her at work or on my smart phone. Only purchased 2, will be buying 2 more soon. These are expensive but like the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I also have to mention ease of set up, within 2 minutes of opening up the box I had the first one operational, within another 2 minutes I had the second one up and running. For me that made the cost well worth while.

Worthless for Night Time

I bought this camera too watch over all my animals during the night. There are 3 big cats and a dog in a 20x15 room and the camera's motion detection in Night Vision mode cant catch them moving around the room unless its 3 feet infront of the camera. Absoulutely uselss for pet watching during night hours. Save your money and buy something else if your using this to Pet Watch at nighttime. Worthless.

This camera provides really great quality videos. There is a little lag at times but I think it depends on your internet connection. There is a 10 day video history trial period and after that you do have to pay [price] a year to continue this service, which works out to just under [price] a month. This device is definitely highly recommended!

Fair Warning

If you want to review ANY history after the free trial, you will have to pay a subscription fee. If you opt not to pay, this becomes a live cam ONLY. You will still receive Motion and Noise alerts on your mobile device, but will be unable to review what caused the alert - even seconds after the alert comes in. I would recommend looking into the Canary (search kickstarter - it is a full product now) It will allow you to review a few days worth of history and you can subscribe for longer retention. I am deeply disappointed with NEST's decision to not keep even 24 hours worth of history for the unsubscribed.
