Nest Cam IQ Overview


Nest Cam IQ is the new best-in-class smart security camera from the company that helped kick off the smart home revolution with products like the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Nest Cam IQ is equipped with Supersight which features a 4K image sensor, close-up tracking view, 12x digital zoom with enhancement, a 130-degree wide-angle lens, infrared LED night vision, HDR and crystal clear 1080p live video streaming. Add in a 6-core CPU for serious processing power and you get an indoor security camera that’s smart enough to detect a person, zoom in on their face then send you an alert with a snapshot of the intruder. You can view live streaming video 24/7, day or night.

With Nest IQ’s high volume speaker and 3-microphone array with noise cancellation and echo suppression, you can even have a seamless, live conversation with anyone in the room you’re viewing.


Nest Cam IQ is equipped with a six-core CPU, advanced intelligence, a 4K image sensor and a 130-degree wide angle camera lens. This potent combination gives the Nest Cam IQ an unprecedented, advanced intelligence that allows it to distinguish between objects and people, eliminating false alarms.

With its intelligent person alerts, the Nest Cam IQ recognizes that a person has entered the room, and can send an alert to you. Using its high powered optics it is able to automatically zoom in on the person for a crystal clear close-up view while simultaneously showing you the full picture of what’s going on. With an optional Nest Aware subscription, Nest Cam IQ gets even smarter, learning to recognize individuals so you can be notified if it detects a family member or a stranger.*

If you missed an alert, the Nest app keeps a three-hour snapshot history for easy review.


Nest Cam IQ is equipped with an incredibly advanced new optical system called Supersight. Nest Cam IQ hardware includes a 4K image sensor, High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, dual-view support (that lets the camera zoom in for a close-up shot of a face while still providing the full 130-degree wide angle view), 12x digital zoom and enhance, 1080p HD video streaming and a powerful processor driving it all. There is even a pair of high-power infrared LEDs for effective night vision.

With Nest Cam IQ’s Supersight, you get incredible clarity in close-ups, a clear image day or night, and 24/7 live streaming video in 1080p HD that offers a crisp view without using all your internet connection bandwidth.

Despite its advanced technology, Nest Cam IQ offers easy, DIY installation. Plug it in, launch the app, no hub required.



Being able to see an intruder so you can alert the authorities is one thing. Many intruders can be frightened off before they do any damage, just by letting them know you’re aware of their presence and watching them.

Nest Cam IQ is equipped with a powerful speaker that’s seven times louder than Nest Cam Indoor. This means you can speak to the intruder and they will hear you, even from across the room. Nest Cam IQ also features a 3-microphone array with noise cancellation and echo suppression, so you’ll be able to hear them loud and clear as well.

HD Talk and Listen isn’t just for scaring off burglars. You can use it to have a seamless conversation with a family member in your home, even when you’re travelling or in the office. Or use it to remind your dog he’s not supposed to be on the couch.
