Description

The indoor Nest Cam knows the difference between a person, pet, and vehicle, and alerts you about the things that matter to you, instead of the things that don't. 24/7 live view shows you what’s happening from anywhere.* With 3 hours of free event video history, you can go back and see what you missed. And it comes in different colors to fit your style. The indoor Nest Camera requires the Google Home app and a Google Account – it’s not compatible with the Nest app or the home.nest.com site.

Control with the Google Home app.

Better alerts, built in.
Nest Cam has intelligent alerts built in, for more helpful notifications. It can tell the difference between a person, pet, and vehicle, and alert you about the things that matter to you, instead of the things that don't.

See what’s happening, anytime.
With 24/7 1080p HD video, you can check in on your home from anywhere.* HDR helps you see key details in bright, high-contrast sunlight, and night vision gives you a clear image even in low light and darkness.

Go back in time.
If you miss a notification or other event, you can go back and see what happened with 3 hours of free event video history.** And you can always add a Nest Aware subscription to get up to 60 days of video history.

Protects your privacy.
Nest Cam uses encrypted video, two-step verification, and enhanced security through your Google Account to help protect your privacy. And a green LED light lets you know when the camera is processing or streaming video.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This has been one of those things that I didn’t know I needed until I had it. Took me a while to set it up after getting it, but will not go without it again and will likely get a few more. Maybe even splurge and get the wireless ones. I originally thought the wired state would be a massive inconvenience, but it wasn’t so bad because the cord is really long. I wouldn’t recommend you use it outside since it could easily be unplugged and carted off. If you use it inside I didn’t find anywhere I couldn’t set it up where I wanted. The set up was really easy and the picture is very good. Even the night vision is pretty decent. I mostly used it to keep up with what was happening in the house when I was away from home. I always felt better knowing I could tell if the cats were ok and that the house hadn’t been broken into. I was bummed that I have to subscribe to get the recordings and a longer history, but I never did and still found it to be useful. In short, it is easy to set up, easy to move around despite being wired, and has a very good picture. The bad is having to pay for more features and not being able to use it outside.

I have Nest cameras and had to purchase another, which ended up being a google nest. Worst camera ever. The quality is great, when it works! I have all of my nest cameras set up alongside my Google Nest and the Google constantly loads and then fails. If I close the app and then pull it up, the camera will show for about 2 minutes or so and then loads and fails again. My nest cameras all show perfectly. Won’t be buying any more of these!

Hi Tasha, thanks for choosing our Google Nest products. We're sorry for the negative experience you had with the connectivity issue between the Google Home app and your Nest Cam (Indoor, Wired). Here are some recommended steps to help you with the issue: - Nest cameras typically require between 0.8 Mbps to 4.0 Mbps per device to upload properly, depending on the video quality setting you selected. You may also check for possible congestion in your Wi-Fi network. Removing some of your connected devices can help free up some bandwidth space. You may then check to see if you will still experience the same connectivity issue. Should you verify congestion, we recommend contacting your Internet service provider to test and check your connection, and possibly upgrade it if needed. - You may also check for possible sources of interference such as the thick walls and appliances in your home. If you encounter any further issue, please consider contacting our support team for further troubleshooting and isolation via the Google Nest help page.

Jen P - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this camera to face out my back patio door for night security, but it is useless for this type of usage. It cannot be used facing outside after dark. I wish it had mentioned in the description that it was for indoor-facing use only. It is a very good camera for indoor security, and very simple to set up. If you have older Nest cameras, they will most likely have to be transfered to the new app if you want all of your cameras on one system. Not ideal but it does help you with this process.
1 reply from Nest Support team - 5 months ago
Hi Jen P, we really appreciate your feedback on Nest Cam (Indoor, Wired), and we’re sorry to learn that your experience has been less than ideal. Indoor cameras are designed for inside use only. While you can point an indoor camera out a window to view what’s happening outside, this might affect your video quality. and can impact your camera’s video quality or Night Vision. For example, the window glass can create reflections, and your view is limited by the size and location of the window. If your goal is to record an outdoor space, install one of our outdoor cameras to get the best quality video. They are designed to work outside and withstand the elements. If you prefer to use an indoor camera, here are some tips for pointing it out a window: - Mount the camera so that the lens is flush against the glass to reduce reflections and glare. - Avoid windows that have a mesh screen as they can affect motion detection. We’d be happy to share your feedback with the right team for future improvements with our products and services, including the product descriptions. And for any support concerns, our dedicated team of specialists are available to provide you with assistance at the Google Nest Help page.

Bought this camera like most to use WITH the NEST app, well that was a mistake. Had to add it in Google home instead and the integrations are garbage. You can get people alerts but the camera got knocked down you want to know how? Me too but it doesn't show the footage, it decided it wasn't an event. It doesn't show a calendar like nest, doesn't let me scroll through the recorded footage like nest I can just watch events, and yes I am paying for nest aware. Want to check it on a browser? Oops should have got the nest iq cam. There are just better options now; cheaper cameras without subscriptions, more features, and higher resolution. Avoid this one if you want a good security option.
1 reply from Nest Support team - 7 months ago
Hi Ninj0hn, we highly appreciate your feedback on Nest Cam (indoor, wired), and we’re sorry to learn of your disappointment with the camera’s integration in Google Home app. We’re aware that longtime Nest users enjoy viewing their Nest camera feeds from the Nest app and web app. However, our priority with this launch was building a complete experience for our new cameras and doorbell in the Google Home app. We’re working on a seamless solution to use the Google Home app as the one place you can control all of your favorite Nest and other smart home devices, as well as Google Assistant. Also, using Google Home app provides you with a lot of benefits including access to Google's trusted security platform and access to other Google tools. This means you get a simpler interface and a simpler way to connect all your devices into a single environment. We'll certainly share your feedback with the appropriate team to work on future improvements on our products and the services we offer. And if you need real time assistance around the performance and features of your Nest camera, you're always welcome to contact us here: https://support.google.com/googlenest/gethelp

Shannon - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
I currently have two original nest cameras that I use with the nest app. I pay each year to get 3 days saved history on my cameras. I recently purchased another camera to put in my spare bedroom. First of all, I was forced to download a new Google app to use this camera. There is no way to add it to the nest app with my other cameras. Today something important happened and I needed to view that cameras footage, however, on this new camera it showed no history!! I’m so mad. This is getting returned. Target sells another camera for like $30 that’s more useful than this.
1 reply from Nest Support team - 8 months ago
Hi Shannon, thanks for sharing your feedback. We apologize that you’re unable to add the new Nest Cam Indoor in Nest App, and having issues with Nest Aware. If you have a 2nd Gen Nest Aware, all your devices should be covered including your new Nest Cam Indoor. You don’t have to pay an additional subscription. However, if you have a camera with 1st Gen Nest Aware, you couldn’t have a new subscription in the same home structure. 2nd Gen Nest Aware subscription provides more value for your money with its features. Aside from 30 days of Video History and 24/7 continuous recording, you have access to clips and time lapses and even customizing your own activity zones. The best thing about this subscription is that it will include all your Google Nest devices under one subscription unlike before where you have to pay a monthly subscription for each device. We value your feedback as it will greatly help us in improving our products and services. If you need assistance, you can always reach out to our support team here: https://support.google.com/googlenest/gethelp

If you just want a security camera, go elsewhere. Gobs of unneeded features with the Google Home and Google Nest app. If if was not so complicated to put in, it would not be a bad camera. Mine crashed and trashed the Nest account that could not be restored when its Google account was accidentaly closed and then reopened. Too fragile a system IMHO.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It took me a while to take the Nest Cam out of its box. I was not looking forward to the inevitable hassle of hooking it up and getting it to work. If only I had known! When I finally bit the bullet, I was astounded. It was perhaps the easiest set-up I have ever experienced! It connected right up to my Wi-Fi network and started working within minutes. The video quality is fantastic. I love that it has a "familiar face" feature. Pulling up the video from your phone is incredibly simple. You can even speak into your phone and have your voice come out of the camera! You are able to rotate the camera in various directions. It even allows a certain period of recording so that you can go back and watch something that happened hours ago. Overall, I am in love with this device!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been pleased with addition to the Nest products in use at our home. We already use the app, so it was easy to add. The camera covers a wide space in our main living area. We are currently in the middle of a remodel and the camera has made it easy for us to check on the progress while we are away from home.

A good camera, but a few watch-outs

4 out of 5 stars
Nowyoucanseeme - 10 months ago
originally posted on Google LLC
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The good - it was very easy to install, and it has good video and audio quality, good features for motoring and playback, 2-way audio. If you have a strong WiFi signal in your home and a power outlet you are good to go. No worries about changing camera batteries, connecting to a router with a limited range. Pretty much it is plug and play, almost. The watch-outs - I've had plenty of issues with the Nest app as I'm a legacy Google Home user and the Nest software has issues for legacy Home users The USB power connection with the lock mechanism from the camera to the power connector requires you tro drill a hole much larger than theoretically needed when installing the wire through walls. They should have offered some sort of disconnect or a locking plug-thing on both ends that way you don't have to drill such a large hole to mount the camera. Lastly, the cameras aren't nearly as awesome without the Nest subscription services, so that's something to watch out for if you're looking for a feature rich camera without monthly charges.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been using nest cams on the exterior of our home for several years, but aside from one plug-in cam this is our first indoor Nest cam. My husband was able to install it relatively easily and I love the convenience of being able to check on the interior of my home with the app. Overall, I highly recommend this indoor wired Nest cam.
