Google Nest Cam (battery) review: The camera for anywhere around the home


It may be surprising to learn that Google has been in the home security business for quite some time. In fact, the original Nest Cam was first launched in 2014, long before any of us had an inkling that Google Assistant would become the brains behind...

Works both indoors and out Stores three hours of video history for free Great contrast with HDR video Magnetic plate has a strong connection

Bulky design Details are a bit soft

Even though there are some minor nuisances that could be easily addressed by a software update, the $180 Google Nest Cam (battery) is a well-rounded security camera that can be effective wherever it’s placed. It’s a highly versatile camera out of the...

Ever since Google folded the Nest brand back into its main hardware lineup in 2019, the company has been slowly updating its product portfolio with a more cohesive design language and support for the newer Home app. This year, Google is finally turning...

Understated design Easy mounting system Longer-than-average battery life

Lower quality image sensor than prior Nest cameras Charging battery requires taking camera down Subscription plan required for any real security use

The $179.99 Nest Cam battery is Google’s first attempt at a battery-operated security camera. It can be mounted indoors or out and lasts an expected two and a half months between charges. In the box is a magnetic mounting plate that can hold the camera...

Google Nest Cam (Outdoor or Indoor, Battery) Review


The latest addition to the Google's family of home security cameras, the $179.99 Nest Cam (Outdoor or Indoor, Battery), is also its most versatile. As the name implies, you can use this weatherproof camera indoors or outdoors and power it using the...

Easy to install (no wires) Weatherproof Intelligent alerts Dual-band Wi-Fi Works with Google Assistant Face recognition

Expensive Doesn't support Alexa, HomeKit, or IFTTT Some features require a subscription

The Google Nest Cam is a battery-powered indoor/outdoor home security camera that's easy to install and delivers crisp HD video and intelligent alerts.

Nest Cam with battery review: Google is back with a smarter security camera


Google is back in the smart home security saddle with a new $180 Nest Cam. It's battery-powered, rated for outdoor or indoor use and stands to rival Arlo and Wyze for smart features and tech specs. But is it really the best? At $180, it's not the most...

Free smart alerts Indoor/Outdoor application Great Home app interfacing

Still pricey Only 3 hours of clips included Heavy and large

If you have your heart set on a Nest Cam, don't fret. This one works well and it isn't even the only camera Google is launching this year. There will also be a wired version for indoor-only use. We don't have an availability date yet, but Google tells...

Nest Cam review: A great security cam, indoors or out


From a hardware perspective, the Nest Cam is a radical refresh of the old teardrop-shaped Nest Cam Indoor, designed with a tough, plastic, cup-shaped housing that adheres magnetically to its surface-mountable base (it looks very similar to the...

Arguably the easiest setup in the industry Attractive industrial design Can operate on either AC or battery power (or AC with battery backup)

Anemic night vision Proprietary and too-short power cable High-priced subscription required to get full value

The new-for-2021 Nest Cam is flexible and powerful, though it’s a pricey option once you include the cost of the accessories you might want (not to mention a subscription).

Nest Cam Battery Review 2021


We've tested all of Nest's cameras, but it's been years since a new one came out. So naturally, when Google announced a new Nest Cam Battery for only $179.99 (much cheaper than the now-discontinued IQ cameras), we were itching to try it out. We...

Person and package detection included for free Three hours of video storage included for free Weather resistance

No optical zoom Not completely dust-tight Need to pay for more than three hours of cloud storage

We appreciated this affordable and wireless option from Nest, which doesn't skimp on video and AI features.

No colour night vision ; No built-in siren and spotlight ; Can’t customise notifications based on familiar faces ; Doesn’t come with a desk stand (must be purchased separately)

Google's Overhauled Nest Cams Are Smarter and Easier to Use Without a Subscription


Google's new family of Nest cams is designed to streamline and simplify home security, the company said, so in addition to new devices, Google is also overhauling its pricing plans and incorporating improved on-device processing for increased privacy...

The indoor/outdoor Nest Cam features a 1080p camera with HDR and night vision capability. Like the Nest Doorbell, it comes in several colors and has an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance (not to mention a housing made from 45% recycled plastic)....

Nest Cam (battery) review


It's been a few years since Google came out with a new Nest Cam; in that time, more than a few rivals have popped up, offering home security cameras with sub-$100 prices, built-in lights, and more. So Google has to do a lot to justify the $179 price of...

Great design Very sharp video quality Free person, animal, vehicle detection 3 hours of video storage free

Only works with Google Home at launch Few accessories

The Nest Cam is the best home security camera for most people.

Google Nest Cam (battery) review


How does Google's first battery-powered home security camera compare to models from established players Arlo and Ring?

Clear footage during the day and at night ; Facial recognition ; Integration with Google Assistant

No color night vision ; Requires additional stand if not wall-mounted

The Google Nest Cam (battery) is a simple-to-use home security camera that records clear Full HD footage, in color during the day and in black and white at night, and because it’s battery-powered you’ve got plenty of flexibility when choosing where to...
