Cloud-based Outdoor Security Camera

Why we love it

There are lots of security camera options out there, which all require varying degrees of technical capability and additional hardware… Nest’s cloud-based, wi-fi enabled camera solution is straightforward, easy to use, and easy to set up (although it does require a subscription fee in order to save clips). The live camera feeds are also accessible via the Nest app which can also control the Nest Protect and Nest thermostat.

This is the outdoor version of their popular indoor camera, which can withstand weather and still wirelessly connect to the cloud as long as your wifi network is within range.

You may also want to consider an Eero wifi router to help extend your home network further. We also recommend this colored silicon sleeve, which makes the camera a little less of an eyesore at night and in more natural environment.

From Nest:

  • SECURITY HAS NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD: The Nest Cam Outdoor is here to help set your mind at ease. Nest Cam Outdoor is beautiful, weatherproof, and it plugs into power, so you never have to worry about dead batteries. Whether you’re watching for the kids to get home from school, checking to see if your package has arrived, or scaring off a potential burglar, Nest Cam Outdoor is here to help!
  • DON’T MISS A THING WITH NEST ALERTS: You can’t always be watching your video feed. Nest Cam looks for motion and listens for loud sounds, like a boom or the crash from a window breaking. Then it can alert you with a photo from the event, and even save some pictures in the Nest app for three hours.
  • BE HEARD WITH NEST: Nest Cam Outdoor has a built-in speaker and mic so you can scare off a suspicious visitor when you’re out, or let the delivery man know to leave the package at the door.
  • WORKS WITH NEST: Nest has worked hard to design thoughtful devices to help keep you safe and secure. Nest devices not only communicate with each other but also with the other smart devices around your home. Your Nest Secure can use your smart light bulbs to help get your attention in the event of an emergency; your smart washer and dryer can take the data from Nest and run the next load of laundry when energy demand is low. Look for the Works with Nest badge and let Nest handle the rest.
  • THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE A NEST HOME: We love home. It’s the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. Some things beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things we’ve learned to ignore. We think these things should do more. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That’s how we’re creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.
