While the indoor smart cam market is packed with choice, from premium devices like Logitech Circle 2 to the marvelous $20 WyzeCam V2, outdoor equivalents are just coming to the fore.
Joining them is the $349 Nest Cam IQ Outdoor security camera, a wired and weatherproof device packed with intelligent features we’ve already seen put to good use this year with the Nest Secure smart security system and Nest Hello smart doorbell.
The $199 Nest Cam Outdoor has been spotting suspicious activity for the last few years with crisp 1080p HD video, night vision, two-way talk, and smart notifications.
The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor builds on these solid foundations, adding a 4K sensor (with 1080p HDR output), facial recognition, and smart tracking — but unlike competitors, it lacks external security features like a floodlight or siren.
Sleek lines and a sturdy build
Nest knows how to put together a polished package, and Nest Cam IQ Outdoor doesn’t disappoint.
