View live HD video, replay video recordings, talk to visitors, and more - all from the Google Home app. Nest Cam (battery) requires a free Google Account and is not compatible with the Nest app or the home.nest.com site.

  • Outdoors or indoors. Rain or shine. The Nest Cam security camera is weather resistant and wireless, so it's designed to go almost anywhere, from the living room to the backyard.

Questions & Answers

Q:If the temp drops below the min operating temp of -4 F will the camera be damaged?
by|Feb 4, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, Rich! Thanks for your inquiry! Using the device above or below the temperature range (-20°C to 40°C) can cause performance issues. You need to bring it inside to a warm place, preferably at room temperature so the battery can start to charge slowly once its temperature rises past 32°F (0°C). It will charge faster when it warms up. Find out more about the technical specifications using this link: https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/9259110

    Q:Approximately what’s the maximum distance my camera can be mounted outside from my indoor WiFi system and still be able to view the picture without interference?
    by|Jan 26, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hey there, Detlu! Thanks for your inquiry! The Nest camera needs a strong Wi-Fi signal to record and save videos. Beyond 25 feet from your router, it might disconnect. It won’t record and store videos if not connected to Wi-Fi. It can capture and save events anytime as long as the camera is connected to both Wi-Fi and Nest service. Also, wireless interference can give you trouble connecting Nest products or other wireless devices. It can also cause slow network communications or intermittent disconnections. So your Nest products might continuously disconnect and reconnect, or they may be slow to respond to app control.

      Q:Nest App Is this camera compatible with the Nest app? Since it is called a Nest Cam I would assume it is, but I want to make sure. It is frustrating to understand all the changes Google is making to their security products.

      A:  I purchased this camera and worked on it for at least 2 hours before giving up. I could not get it to connect using the Google Home app. Even creating a new Google login/email was not successful. It would try to connect and fail every time.

            DO NOT PURCHASE
            We purchased 8 Google Nest doorbell, wired floodlight, battery operated cameras & subscribed to the $12/month Nest Aware Plus to record events. In March 2023, Google implemented a software update that severely downgraded the quality of the live feed so that it wasn't capturing movement therefore not recording. After many complaints from Camera owners it took 3 months for them to implement another software update, its worse. This is NOT Home Depots fault but they do sell this product.

              “Cannot Connect To Assisting Device“
              The Google Home app tries to connect to an assisted device during setup. It fails. There are no work-a-rounds offered. Contacted Google and was quoted a 3 minute response time. After 33 minutes, Google support prompt thanked me for my call and that if I still needed assistance, to call back. Submitted another ticket w/Google and got a call back. I was told that this the “Cannot Connect to Assisting Device” is a known issue and to either wait for a Google Home app update to fix the software issue (est time ???) or return the item to Home Depot. a bit frustrated that I wasted time ordering, waiting at the online pick-up until I was told to go get the item myself from the cage by the registers, and the Nest can does not even work.

                Fun design! Excellent use of magnets.
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It has good video and nice range. It will alert if motion detected. I had a few problems setting up. I was used to Apple products and am working now on a Samsung tablet - so probably operator error. I only have one Google nest cam and didn't have any other devices in Google Home. When you view the camera, it shows battery life- right now mine is on 76% or 3 weeks. It estimates it on usage, weather and camera activity. (got the indoor/outdoor) Currently use indoor. Video can sense motion and record it. Can view histroy and send notification if it senses a person. The microphone will pick up voices and noises and you can speak through the nest camera. I have been playing with the magnetic part of it. I stuck to my refrigerator, a 3 hole punch, and a metal wall art.

                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Nest cam is a great device. Easy to install and operate. The unit comes in two parts, base & camera. No need to hardwire because the camera hooks up to the base via heavy duty magnet so you can remove to charge via USB cord (included). Only caveat it is hard to pair with Alexa. Still trying to pair. Otherwise this unit is great to have for peace/piece of mind and security and you can view through your phone, save clips, and view battery strength. The picture/video quality is quite sharp and you can view your history easily. The sound is clear and crisp. I do recommend the Nest Cam!

                    Small, easy to set up, easy to use
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wonderful little camera - good for indoor or outdoor use, which was a great selling point for me. Installation was very simple and fast. All I had to do was plug in the camera, install the app, and scan the QR code to connect it to my wifi. I like that is can be recharged or used while plugged in. Really great picture quality, even when it’s dark out. It is a “smart” camera and can learn what faces to recognize and when to notify you that someone outside of the recognized faces is picked up by the camera. We have it mounted above the garage so we can see when people pull up and when deliveries are made. It is small and hardly noticeable. I use the Google Home app on my phone, and the camera shows up there along with all of my other Google Home compatible devices. I am able to quickly see what is happening in real time and also review the camera’s history. I am able to view what is happening at my home even if I’m not there and that gives me so much peace of mind. Hoping to get a few more of these set up to cover the perimeter of my home.

                      Great Picture Quality
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my second Nest cam. We have a wired indoor cam and this battery indoor/outdoor cam. As you can see from the photos, the live picture is very clear and sharp. One was taken at dusk, while the other was taken in complete darkness. The setup of the camera with the Home app was simple and easy. The sensors on the cam are sensitive and pickup motions quickly and the cam begins taping. In the setup, you have multiple choices of what notifications you wish to receive, such as vehicles, animals, persons, etc. I purchased an annual subscription to Nest Aware, so event history would be accessible for 30 days before being deleted. Otherwise, the cam only stores 3 hours of history at a time before resetting. Google has created and easy to use app and high quality camera.

                        Best camera! Easy install
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Set up is So easy! Download Google Home App and add camera. The best part is not having to deal with wires, so just mount and go. I suggest you do face recognition before mounting. The magnetic mount is very strong and the battery life still almost full after 2 tweeks. Video and two way sound I found to be very clear. Features animal detection, vehicle detection and familiar face is awesome. Like competitors subscription required for 24H /7 or 3 hours worth of events free. Google Nest Cam does not work with Amazon,Alexa or integrate with other security systems, but you should know that before you buy. The bottom line is if you like easy and quick install this camera is for you.

                          Exceptional Value
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very excited to try out my new Google Nest Cam and knew exactly where I would use it. Set up was incredibly easy. Just download the Google Home app and then scan the QR code. From there, I answered series of questions that guided me from camera connection to installation. This tiny camera is amazing and includes motion-detection pictures & videos, low-light capabilities, customized alerts and facial recognition technology. There's an extra level of comfort being able to monitor my home's blindspots. I love it!!

                            Great Camera
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like this camera. It was easy to set up and very easy to install. I love how easy it is remove when I need to charge it. The magnet is very strong and I think it would stay attached during heavy winds. The battery estimate says 7 months!! Wow! It loads very quick when you get an alert. It's awesome you can hear and even speak through the camera. The live video works well and the history timeline feature is very easy to navigate to see past events. The image is clear and crisp and the night view is also very good. So far I am very impressed with the camera and I have not even fully discovered all the settings and features.
