The camera has a 4K sensor and a 12x digital zoom. You'll get HDR imaging for extra clear video even while zoomed in, and it can automatically zoom in and track intruders. The camera records in 1080p and has a 130-degree field of view so you can see everything around the camera very clearly.

This is a security cam designed with outdoor use in mind. For one thing, it is IP66 rated. The two numbers in an IP rating represent different quantifiers, and the first 6 is as high as that number goes. It means the camera is completely dust tight and has no way for dust to get inside, even when tested under a vacuum for up to eight hours. The second six represents water resistance. The camera could actually be hit by powerful water jets from any direction and be just fine, which means it'll definitely resist normal forms of precipitation like rain or snow. In addition to all that, the camera comes with clips, cables, screws, anchors, and plates so you can install it and make it tamper resistant.

Other features for the Nest Cam include two-way HD audio so you can hear what's going on and speak to visitors, whether they're welcome or not. You can also use the 3-hour snapshot history to see what happened during that time quickly and easily. Use the Nest app to keep you covered even if you miss an alert. The camera's smart features work with several brands including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Philips Hue, and other Nest products like the Nest thermostat.
