One of the pioneers in IP Camera technology is ready to take their game outdoors. Nest traces its origins back to the Dropcam and for many years has been one of the leading innovators in smart realtime Home Security. With its position in Home Automation cemented, Google and Nest now set their sights on bringing the Nest Cam outdoors. The new Nest Cam Outdoor takes the same wide angle, 24/7 approach that you got used to indoors and takes it outside.

Multi-Platform Support

The Nest Cam Outdoor has the same platform flexibility you have gotten used to from the indoor camera. The camera is available to both Android and iOS users through the free Nest app. Setup is done very easily if your device has Bluetooth 4.0 or else if you want to do it through your PC, all you need is to hook it up through a USB connection and get set up online.


For more information about the requirements to set up and use the Nest Cam, please refer to the table on the right.

Standing guard in rain or shine, day and night

Nest outdoor1.JPGNo matter what plans Mother Nature has for your Nest Cam Outdoor, it is ready to withstand the barrage. Not only is the camera itself waterproof, but the cable and adapter are too. There’s no need to worry about getting up on a ladder and constantly changing batteries either because the camera plugs into a nearby outlet up to 25 feet away. All of the hardware you could possibly need is included with your camera, including wall plates, anchors and cable clips. It mounts through the use of a powerful magnet, giving you the ability to tinker and fine tune what your camera broadcasts without the worry of screwing and unscrewing it from the base over and over again.

Nest Outdoor Cam Minimum Requirements

  • Compatible phone or tablet with iOS 8.0 or Android 4 (or later)
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, 2.4GHz or 5GHz (WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption supported)
  • Broadband Internet Connection with at least 2 Mbps upload speed

With 8 infrared LEDs onboard providing Night Vision capabilities, Nest Cam Outdoor ensures that you can see what is happening outside of your home day or night.





Your eye in the sky

You’ll get full colour video at 30 frames per second and it is available for you to view 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the free Nest app. You can have it push you alerts any time there is any unusual activity, similar to the indoor camera. Nest also offers the “Nest Aware” service starting at $10 a month. You can get smarter alerts and up to 30 days of continuous cloud storage recording.

It can also act as a communication device for you in case you need to get somebody’s attention, like having the mailman leave the package at your doorstep or asking a neighbor knocking on your door to come back later when you’re available.

Get ready to bring home the trusted Nest Cam technology, but reinforced and ready to look after your home from the outside.
