Nest Unveils the Nest Cam IQ


Nest has released an upgraded indoor security camera, dubbed the Nest Cam IQ. It has all the features you’ve come to expect from Nest Cam, but adds significantly more, to make it a real improvement on its younger brother. For starters, it has an improved 4K sensor, boasting 8MP and 12x digital zoom. The maximum resolution is 1080p at 30 fps, but with Nest’s Supersight technology, the company brings added image clarity with the help of High Dynamic Range (HDR) functionality and a 6-core processor.

Nest also improved the microphone and speaker of the Cam IQ. Equipped with a 3-microphone array and a high-quality speaker, the camera provides better communication clarity for speaking with visitors, and uses noise and echo suppression to further improve sound quality. Additionally, Cam IQ, as its name suggests, has some intelligent functions, including person alerts. The camera can tell the difference between an object moving and a person moving to alert you of unexpected activity. With Nest Aware, a separately available subscription service, you gain access to Familiar Face alerts, as well.
