Nest wants your home security camera to recognize you

Share

The Nest Cam IQ's highlight is its ability to distinguish between a person and a cat, all without the need of a Nest Aware subscription. It uses Google's deep learning technology to detect movement in field of view and send alert with a zoomed in capture of the person in the view. 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 and Listen means better quality streaming audio and, this summer, iOS and Android will get full-duplex audio rather than the push-to-talk system now employed. For audio input, the camera has a trio of microphones with noise and echo cancellation.

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. Nest is selling its new camera for $299.

The Nest Cam IQ, unveiled Wednesday, will be Nest's first device to draw upon the same human-like skills that Google has been programming into its computers - for instance, to identify people in images via its widely used photo app. Facebook deploys similar technology to automatically recognize and recommend tags of people in photos posted on its social network. Person alerts is only available on previous Nest Cam models with a Nest Aware subscription. In the Nest app, you'll see a 4x zoomed, 1080p close-up of them entering, with a picture-in-picture of the main feed in the corner (which you can always switch to). That means you can see the details of a face, as well as the overall context of the room. Cleverly, that material itself was specially selected for its thermal properties, acting as a passive heat-sink to keep the Nest Cam IQ cool. You can't record anything locally-recording on the Nest Cam IQ requires a monthly subscription to Nest Aware. There's also "Intelligent audio alerts", which can automatically detect and alert you of a dog barking or someone talking.

The Nest Cam IQ offers a number of improvements over the Nest Cam Indoor, even without a subscription. So Fido could help alert you to a stranger lurking outside, or simply alert you to the fact that he's driving the neighbors insane by barking all day. Consumers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands are also able to place advanced orders on the device, though its European price is somewhat higher, amounting to €349, or approximately $390. Pre-orders will be available in Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain beginning June 13. Shipping is expected to start at the end of June.
