Control with the Google Home app.
View live HD video, replay video recordings, talk to visitors, and more – all from the Google Home app. The Nest Cam (battery) requires a free Google Account and is not compatible with the Nest app or the Nest site.
Talk to who’s there, even when you're not.
If something happens, it alerts you, so you can decide to take action right from the Google Home app.* Talk and listen through the camera, and if you need some help, you can call your local emergency service directly from the app.*
Talk and Listen. Talk to who’s there, from anywhere.
Talk and listen to people through the built-in speaker and mic.* Tell your kids to stop running in the house, or say hello to your dog, just for fun.
Get alerts that matter to you.
Nest Cam shows you what’s happening at home, and alerts you when it spots a person, animal, or vehicle.* It can even recognize familiar faces and tell you who’s coming and going.**
See clearly in any light.
See key details in all kinds of light. HDR helps with bright, high-contrast sunlight, and night vision gives you a clear image even in low light and darkness.
Go back in time.
If you miss a notification, go back and see a recording over the last 3 hours with free event video history.** You can add a Nest Aware subscription to get up to 60 days of event video history.
If you’d like to add 10 days of 24/7 continuous video recording, you’ll need to plug your Nest Cam (battery) into an outlet for continuous power using one of the accessory cables and add a Nest Aware Plus subscription (both sold separately).
Protects your privacy.
Nest Cam uses encrypted video, two-step verification, and enhanced security through your Google Account to help protect your privacy. And a green LED light lets you know when the camera is processing or streaming video.
Wi-Fi problems? Not a problem.
If your Wi-Fi goes down or there’s a power outage, Nest Cam will automatically store up to one hour of recorded events. When things are up and running again, you’ll be able to see exactly what happened.
Install it yourself.
Wire-free installation is easy. You can put Nest Cam almost anywhere you want, outside or in. And since it’s battery powered, you don't need to install it near an outlet.
Outdoors or indoors. Rain or shine.
With no wires and a range of accessories, Nest Cam is designed to go almost anywhere. It’s battery powered and weather resistant. Put it on the exterior of your house to keep an eye on the yard. Or put it inside your home to check in on the dog or the kids.
Includes cable and power adapter to recharge.
Recharge your Nest Cam (battery) with the included 3.3-ft (1 m) charge cable and 7.5W adapter. If you would like to plug in your Nest Cam indoors for continuous power, an accessory stand with a built-in 10-ft (3 m) power cable is sold separately.
To install your Nest Cam outside and plug it into a weatherproof power outlet, you’ll need the 16-ft (5 m) or 33-ft (10 m) weatherproof cable and power adapter (sold separately).
Battery life will depend on factors including activity, temperature, and camera settings that you select. You can extend the battery life of your camera by adjusting video quality, length of video clips, time between recorded events, and using activity zones to monitor specific areas.
