The Nest Cam came under scrutiny in 2015 when security researchers discovered it didn’t truly turn off.1 In 2019, another group of security researchers found eight vulnerabilities that could allow hackers to access footage.2 Finally, in 2021, Google discontinued multiple Nest Cams.
Those events painted the Nest Cam IQ Indoor in a more negative light than it deserved. It boasted a 128-bit SSL encryption, and Google patched vulnerabilities quickly and effectively.
Product Update: The Nest Cam IQ Indoor is discontinued. You can pick up a used one or try the new Nest Camera range.
