Nest Cam makes sure that your home is safe by enabling you to check in on your phone, even when you are out.

Instant alerts
Nest Cam Outdoor looks for motion and if something doesn’t look quite right, it instantly sends an activity alert to your phone.

Detailed view
The camera streams Full HD, 1080p content to your phone, tablet or laptop. With the ability to get a 130° wide-angle view of the area, zoom in and enhance, you’ll be able to see every detail. This is the same day or night thanks to Night Vision LED sensors which let you view the whole scene at night.

Built-in microphone & speaker
This lets you tune in to what is going on, and talk back via the Nest app. So you can see who’s at your door and respond.

Get alerts on your phone
If your Nest Cam Outdoor detects something irregular, you can receive an activity alert on your smart phone and even an email with a snapshot of what happened.

Video history
See live what's happening at home or go back in time with 3 hour event history snapshots.

Nest Aware
With an additional Nest Aware subscription (sold separately) you can continuously record everything that’s happening, 24/7 – not just clips. So you can scan through up to 30 days of video history to see what you’ve missed. Nest Aware also sends more intelligent alerts.* You can receive an alert when Nest Cam spots a person. You’ll receive alerts when someone’s talking or a dog’s barking. You can create Activity Zones around important areas and receive alerts when something happens there. Or, if your camera detects a door, it can automatically create an Activity Zone for you.

Secure
Everything about the Nest Cam is private. Using security with 128-bit SSL encryption, Perfect Forward Secrecy and a unique 2048-bit RSA key, security is obtained for your video, and home.

Quick and easy set up
The Nest Cam Outdoor can be easily set up outside your home. Then simply plug in the power cable, download the Nest app and set it up from your Android or iOS device. No hub required.

All weathers
Nest Cam Outdoor is weather-proof so it will always keep monitoring, come rain or shine. It plugs into the mains to ensure it never runs out of power, for security 24/7, and the cable and adapter are weather-proof too.

Put it anywhere
Nest Cam Outdoor can be placed anywhere; over your front door, garage, driveway or other area. The mount can be fixed to wood or masonry using the screws provided, and it’s magnetic so it can attach to a metal gutter or other surface. The 7.5m of provided cabling can be attached using cable clips so it can be secured discreetly to your home.

System requirements:
  • Wi-Fi connection
  • Mobile or tablet with iOS 8 or later, or Android 4.1 or later
  • Free Nest account

Accessories included:
  • USB cable and power cable/adapter (total 7.5m)
  • Mounting magnet
  • Camera wall plate
  • Adapter wall plate
  • Nest screws
  • Wall anchors
  • Cable clips
  • Quick start guide
  • Welcome guide

For anyone looking for an outdoor camera I’d recommend looking at NetAtmo Presence cameras.

They’re a bit more expensive but will save money in the long run as there’s no subscription fee to pay. They can record to SD card, FTP server or DropBox and you can play video directly from any of those places in or out of the home. They also promise to support Apple’s new secure video service in iCloud.

Another benefit is the image recognition which works really well. Instead of triggering on any motion they can recognise and distinguish cars, people and animals and you can control the action in each case. Mine are configured to record all three but only alert or turn the floodlight in for cars or people. This works incredibly well in my experience, even flagging cyclist as vehicles+people. They provide configurable alert zones so you can exclude pavement and road traffic while monitoring your drive and garden.

Finally they support Apple Homekit as well as other platforms.

No criticism of this deal. I’ve not used Nest and I know people like it but do check the options before committing.

Great deal. Assuming this requires a subscription to Nest Aware?

That's why I have Logi Circle cameras; no subscription fee for a 24hrs of recordings. I've got 5; so the cost saving vs something like Nest is pretty considerable over a number of yrs.

But only 80 quid annual saving on running 5 Ring cameras and that includes 1 month of recordings . I'm starting to view these things like printers - sold cheaply but ripping you off with ongoing costs. The Nest in particular.

PS IMO an essential part of one of these cams is illumination. Doesn't look like the nest or the logic circle has any illumination and if not it's a big downside IMO. The first thing that happens when a criminal suddenly gets a light shone on him/her is they look directly to the light. Result? Perfect picture of their face!

Not fair to say yes because I've never used another brand (far too many 'experts' on here just give opinions as facts even though they have had no experience of competing products and it's annoying). All I can say is my wife came home to the box (it was a quick impulse buy at a bargain price from Wickes and no time to tell her) and wasn't happy about it. Within a day or 2 of it going up she admitted she just couldn't imagine not having one. The floodlight part is the real killer aspect of it imo. It's the complete package.

Good price and product but be aware you need to drill a huge hole in your house as there is a connection midway down the power cable which is massive.
I'm no expert on these but I have a couple of ie geek cameras with 128gb SD cards in them. I use my phone software to view the dogs when I'm at work and I have another one inside my window overlooking the drive.

I can play back footage to around 48hrs previously. Both cameras cost around £30 each.

What's so special about these?

You might think it's good value for what you pay for but the point is it should be optional. It's the principle of it.

But it IS optional . The free sub allows live view, 2 way audio, motion-activated activation but no storage/video sharing capabilities IIRC.

Pays for itself? That is a bold (and false) statement
oos pretty much local to me and available for delivery.
Up until a couple of months ago, we had a house alarm system that was monitored, if we were away from home and the alarm went off a call centre would get in touch. Luckily it never went off but it was costing us £20.00 a month for the monitoring.

Recently we cancelled the monitoring side and installed two Nest Cameras, one in our alley and one in the hallway, the layout of the house means the hallway and alley camera cover both entrances, you cannot get from any one room to another without going through the hallway, we have an enclosed rear garden.

The camera in our alley has a PIR floodlight next to it. I pay for a 5 day subscription, £4 for the first camera and £3 for the second. If we are away the camera alerts us to motion so if there was a criminal I’d save the footage before the 5 days expired.

When it comes to home security there isn’t a one size fits all, our alley camera is linked to a Google Home Hub, if we want to see who is at the gate we say “Hey Google Show Me The Alley”. It works for us, it does what we want it to do combined with other things we have in place/

This isn’t as good as something like a proper Hikvision setup but it suits our needs, it was easy to install and it was affordable. The below example is with no floodlight on, the camera has enough light from the door to still be in colour38585158-nf5Tj.jpg

Note I stated same as the Ring ie 30 days recording storage. Costs 2.50/mth with Ring and a whopping 24 quid a month with Nest. Both prices based on one device. Nest's plans are ridiculously overpriced TBH...
Shocking! No defence but I do find Nest is better than Ring in terms of quality and even design. I also find it worked well for me personally as we are mainly in he Google circle. Announcing the name of who's at the door rather than just a bell is genius. Def wouldn't pay £24 a month though. I find 5 days is enough. I'd def know if my house has been robbed / vandalised or if my car is stolen within five days? Even if I was on holiday, I'd get the alert and can download the clip I need. Am I missing something? Why would anyone need 30 days?

The ring only captures videos of motion so less data is stored on their servers, with Nest the data is continuously recording 24/7 so more data is uploaded on their servers.

I had this Nest camera and it's awful: poor design and the plug needs an inch hole to get it through the wall because they put a massive dongle thing on it...! It does all the processing in the cloud so you need a constant, very fast internet connection to actually take full advantage of it (someone worked out it'll use 320GB bandwidth a month) and after all that money you need to pay the subscription or you end up with an extremely basic camera with little functionality. When we actually had this setup it put a real dent in using TV streaming services at home because of how much data it was sending.

Netatmo cameras are meant to be good though genuinely never used them. The Yi outdoor ones are also excellent and great value and that's what we have now.

If you don’t pay Nest you get very basic functionality from a very expensive camera so it’s not worth it. If you do it sends video to the cloud 24/7 for motion alerts, etc vs basic pixel difference detection on cameras like the Yi ones. They have a cheaper tier for the cameras now but you still need to pay a sub and it’s not like they’re cheap to buy. It’s a bad business model IMO.

If you pay Nest subscription you gets tons of choice and options, I personally don't understand why anyone would get this and not pay the subscription, just buy another camera that suits your budget and what you need.

I haven't a problem with plug in for power, I cut the plug off and hard wired it, the thought of relying on batteries wasn't for me, it might be for others. I looked at the Yi cameras as well as others but for me the Nest edged it when I managed to pick it up at a reduced price in a sale promotion.

Sadly you can look at ANY Wifi camera and find between 15% and 20% negative reviews, you just have to work out which ones would or could bother you. I knew about the subscription and I have Virgin Media broadband so two things that others complain about don't affect me.
Edited by: "ristac" 1st Oct
It’s a difficult choice. There are lots of security cameras on the market and they offer different features. I’ve only used Netatmo recently but the processing is done locally in the camera and it only records when it detects a vehicle, person or animal (depending on how you configure it). This avoids continuously consuming your upstream internet bandwidth which may or may not matter depending on your broadband speed and usage.

Netatmo Presence outdoor camera Pros:

Only records when it detects something relevant (vehicle, person, animal)
Processing done locally by the camera
Build in IR and standard floodlights(configurable)
Virtually no false triggers/recordings.
Configurable detection zone set up using multiple rectangles.
No subscription to pay
Records to SD card
Optionally also records to DropBox or FTP sever (NAS drive or Internet)
Apple Homekit support (as well as IFTTT, Amazon, Google etc)
Alerts on your phone with static images
Alerts on an Apple Watch with static images
Play video from the SD card via the app (works at home and away from home)
Very little lag when using Homekit

Cons:
WiFi only
Around 6s lag when viewing video when you’re away from home (unless using Apple Homekit)
