Nest Cam IQ

 

A super-smart security camera that can recognise friend from foe, the Nest Cam IQ can also work as a powerful Google Home smart speaker.

Excellent image quality ; Incredible face recognition ; Can track intruders around a room

Expensive ; Heavily reliant on a Nest Aware subscription

A very slick camera, with exceptional image quality and some smart features, and the new subscription option makes it cheaper to run, too.

Nest Cam IQ Indoor review

 

The Nest Cam IQ Indoor is cute, compact, and capable.

Good quality day/night imaging ; Beautiful hardware design and build ; Integrated Google Assistant ; Intelligent alerts and smart video highlights

Very expensive ; Some smart features require subscription

There’s no doubt that Nest Cam IQ Indoor is a smart, slick and sophisticated security camera – a brilliant combination of intelligent features and high-quality performance delivered with style and grace. But given such strong competition in the market...

Nest Cam IQ review: Nest cam is the best cam but boy does it cost

 

If you want to see your kids, pets and burglars in pristine full HD, including at night, with intelligent alerts, look no further

Excellent quality footage with HD streams and 8-meg downloads ; Reasonably intelligent alerts ; Excellent night vision, mic and speaker ; Well designed all round

Feels crazily expensive ; Not weatherproof ; Nest Aware pretty much obligatory ; What is the point of it?

Nest Cam IQ

 

The Nest Cam IQ is a 1080p home surveillance camera that offers facial recognition, automatic zoom tracking, motion- and sound-triggered alerts, and interoperability with many other smart devices.

Excellent face recognition and two-way audio. Sharp 1080p video. Motion and sound detection. Easy to install. Works with other smart home devices.

Expensive. Many features require Nest Aware subscription.

There's a lot to like about the Nest Cam IQ. Its Supersight zooming feature does a great job of tracking visitors and matching them to your Familiar Face library, and it's smart enough to know the difference between a person and other moving objects....

Nest's fancy 4K security camera tries to do too much

 

The Nest Cam IQ's 4K sensor improves image quality, but most DIYers won't want to pay.

The $299/£299 Nest Cam IQ has an 8-megapixel, 4K image sensor and improved 12x digital zoom for access to new livestreaming security features. A hardware upgrade improves the audio quality of Nest's two-way talk function.

You still have to pay at least $10 per month for continuous cloud video storage. The camera's price doesn't quite match up with the features added.

The Nest Cam IQ is a solid camera that costs a little too much to readily recommend to most home security DIYers.

Nest Cam IQ review: Great home security lacks an intelligent asking price

 

There is no doubt that the Nest Cam IQ is one of the most technologically advanced personal indoor security cameras available. It has a lot of really

Motion tracking within footage is fantastic ; Quality of video is good ; Plenty of useful features ; Built-in Google Assistant ; Seamless integration with Google Home devices

Overall cost is too high ; Facial recognition needs to be more accurate

There is no doubt that the Nest Cam IQ is one of the most technologically advanced personal indoor security cameras available. It has a lot of really great features. It's attractive and will fit in to any home without drawing attention to itself. But...

Nest Cam IQ review

 

Nest's pricey security cam is a little too clever for its own good...

Excellent image quality ; Person detection is built-in ; Face detection works incredibly well (subscription-only) ; Best-looking security cam around

Pricey, particularly with Nest Aware subscription ; No option to save footage locally ; No alarm function ; Software has a few rough edges

A futuristic security cam that can't quite justify its price tag today

Nest Cam IQ review

 

Great design, but not cheap if you want full functionality

Extremely well built ; Beautiful design ; Records high definition footage ; Built in two-way audio

Quite expensive ; Limited functionality without paying Nest Aware subscription ; Mains only ; Gets very hot

This sophisticated and well made security camera with built in facial recognition technology really is one of the most advanced IP cameras we have ever seen. However, you will pay a hefty price in terms of monthly subscription fees if you want to...

Nest Cam IQ Review: Impressive face-recognition comes at a price

 

In an increasingly competitive world of connected security cameras, Nest has turned to Alphabet-sibling Google and its facial recognition tech to make the Nest Cam IQ stand out. Not just the latest in the company's sophisticated home security camera...

Excellent video quality ; Zooming and enhance features really work ; Facial recognition is fast and accurate ; Polished setup and app experience

Camera is expensive ; Nest Aware subscription required for most features ; Not weatherproof

It almost goes without saying that this is the best camera Nest has created. For ease of setup, the simplicity of the app, and image quality it’s hard to find another camera that can compete. Factor in the useful and accurate facial recognition, and...

Nest Cam IQ review: Lots of exciting features, but the price tag triggers less-desirable emotions

 

The latest security camera from Nest Labs is super powerful (and super expensive).

A 4K sensor allows up to 12x zoom with almost no loss in image quality ; Facial recognition identifies and remembers family members ; Smart audio alterts accurately distinguish between a human speaking and a dog barking

Twice the price of the original Nest Cam ; Most of the advanced features require a Nest Aware subscription

With its facial recognition, smart audio alerts, and stellar image quality, the Nest Cam IQ improves significantly on the already estimable Nest Cam. But are those features worthy of such a jump in price, plus the the cost of the Nest Aware...
