Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera
Nest Cam Outdoor stands watch 24/7, rain or shine.  And it sends an alert when it detects activity. This is what an outdoor security camera should be.

One Home. One App.
The Nest app brings everything together in one place, so you don’t have to switch between apps. And, you don’t need to program everything to work together. It all happens automatically.

Works With Nest
Nest’s philosophy for the “Thoughtful Home” is to have as many smart products in the house talking to each other as possible. The more communication the better. Nest works with all kind of things – lights, appliances, fitness bands and Google Home.  Find out more about what works with Nest here.
