Nest Cam IQ: This is the surveillance camera that sees, listens and watches everything that happens in your home

IP surveillance cameras have been around for a long time, but Nest, the Google subsidiary, wants to make a qualitative leap with its Nest Cam IQ, a new model that costs 349 dollars and comes with a remarkable 4K HDR sensor to which they unite various software features.

This is where Google’s neural network technology comes in, which lets you detect if what you see on the camera is a pet, a shadow caused by changing light or a person. The Nest Cam IQ goes even further, and it is also about recognizing sounds like barking, human talk or even a broken glass, something that will trigger the launch of various notifications and alarms.

A smart camera (something more)

Although the 8-megapixel camera sensor is capable of capturing 4K resolution photos and HDR mode, video is captured in 1080p to reduce storage requirements and data to be transmitted. This sensor allows zooming the image to direct the camera towards the face of a person who for one reason or another want to monitor.

All that detection is combined with the encoding and recording of those videos – if you subscribe to Nest’s cloud service – which are performed in real time thanks to a Qualcomm six-core processor. The camera is powered by a USB-C port, and in this company promote the service called Nest Aware ($ 10 a month, 100 for a year).

That disturbing service is perfect to have everything recorded and stored if one wants to keep an eye on his house, and in fact is able to recognize the person who is detected on camera (if it is “registered” in the service) to distinguish it from strangers. Infrared LEDs help the camera “watch in the dark”, and the smart alert system we talked about allows you to activate those notifications if suspicious events occur.
