Probably you associate nest most with the break through learning thermostat; which by the way has had some significant updates in function since it’s introduction in 2011, but maybe you missed the fact that Nest now includes a wide range of other products for the smart home. One of them is the Nest Cam IQ Indoor Security Camera which Nest bill as “Knows What to Look for in the Home, Tells You What’s Important. Its a Powerful, Intelligent Indoor Security Camera which Joins our Lineup of Top-Rated, Award-Winning Nest Indoor and Outdoor Cameras”.
The Nest Cam IQ indoor security camera, offering best-in-class imaging and intelligent features to serve up the most important, actionable information – like knowing your child arrived home safely, or that there’s a stranger in your home – so you can spend more time living your life, and less time managing your security.
Instead of just showing you what’s happening, Nest Cam IQ is smart enough to differentiate between a person and your cat and can alert you accordingly – with no subscription required. When it detects a person, it can send a person alert to your phone and will automatically zoom in on and track the person in the frame so you can get better information about who they are and what they’re doing. And with a Nest Aware subscription, you can even get personalized alerts based on who is in the house (e.g. the name of a family member, the dog sitter or a stranger).
“When designing Nest Cam IQ, we focused on what we’ve learned from our customers, which is that people don’t want more information, they want insights,” said Matt Rogers, Nest co-founder and chief product officer. “So we combined intelligence with excellent image and sound quality to deliver the insights customers need, at the right time. These insights can range from telling you the kids are home from school to sending an alert if an unfamiliar person is in the living room.”
The Nest Cam IQ indoor security camera has a strong foundation of hardware and software:
• High-Quality Video. — A unique combination of premium hardware, advanced software, and a great app experience. Nest Cam IQ uses a 4K image sensor (8 Megapixels), 12x digital zoom and enhance, and high dynamic range (HDR) imaging to make sure you won’t miss key details. With two powerful 940 nm infrared LEDs, Night Vision evenly illuminates the scene, even when it’s dark – and without a red glow.
• HD Talk + Listen Audio. — Nest Cam IQ’s speakers are 7x more powerful than the original Nest Cam and an advanced three-microphone array also delivers noise suppression and echo cancellation for a clearer audio.
• Thoughtful Design. — Nest Cam IQ features a clean white polycarbonate design with a patented swivel mount for flexibility of placement and quick, simple setup.
• Built-in Security. — Nest Cam IQ encrypts your video on-device before streaming and storing video content, using 128-bit AES with TLS/SSL secure connection. With two-step verification, you can select an optional extra layer of security for your Nest account, and with automatic over-the-air updates, your camera can be automatically updated against the latest threats.
And that is just a beginning; with personal alerts and “Supersight” providing both a detailed image of the “intruder” with a wide field of view of the room; and it can check faces against family to indentify strangers in your home and send the alert as well as providing things like audio information which is off camera. This camera is phenominal. Check out this man’s story on the Nest Labs website.
Brad says “The man broke into my house at 1:47 pm. I was able to witness the police entering my apartment and they had the man in custody by 2:17 pm. When I bought the Nest Cam, my fiancée told me it was a waste of money and I was being overly protective for no reason. After what happened, she fully understands why I bought the camera”.

Howie and Aaron Foreman, owners of Connection Plus, believe that preventing a break in at your house is better than sounding the alarm after the burglary is in progress.
Eighty percent of break ins start or stop at the front door. Criminals prefer to break into an empty house than one that is occupied, so knocking at the door with some ruse lets them know if someone’s inside. The problem is, you can’t stay at home all the time, or can you?
Ring Doorbells certainly make it appear that someone is always home at your house because they allow you to speak to whoever rings your bell, even if you’re actually on the other side of town. Ring Video Bell even lets you see whoever is on your front porch. Videos made by Ring customers show that many burglars aware of these devices will flee the scene before attempting to break in through the front door.
‘Answering the door” from anywhere with the Ring video doorbell, makes guests or potential intruders believe you’re home and that you see them. Ring’s HD camera is fitted with night vision to provide a clear view of the front door around the clock. Ring’s motion detection alerts are sent to your phone via the Ring app, alerting you of guests and deliveries. With the Ring doorbell, you’re “always home” and aware of what’s happening at your front door.
If you add Ring’s Stick Up Cams in conjunction with the Ring Video Doorbell, you get a full ring of security around your entire home. It picks up motion on your property and alerts you on your phone no matter where you are. It’s weather resistant and wire-free. Just like with the Ring doorbell, you have full control over motion detection zone sensitivity. It has two way audio to communicate with visitors and possible intruders from anywhere. All videos can be saved and shared via the cloud video service.
The Stick Up Cam allows you to keep an eye and ear on all activity surrounding your entire home. You can monitor arriving guests, check when kids get home from school or spot anyone snooping around your property day or night.
Connections Plus can show you how the best home security smart devices on the market, how they work, and how they prevent crime before it happens. They can literally place a ring of protection around your home with the Ring System.
