What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No local storage: Like other Nest cameras, the Nest Cam IQ requires a Nest Aware cloud subscription to store videos.
  • High price tag:At $299, the Nest Cam IQ is one of the most expensive indoor cameras.
  • Discontinued:As of August 2021, Google Nest no longer offers the Nest Cam IQ, although you can still buy it from third-party sellers.

Bottom Line

Nest’s now-discontinued indoor camera offers a lot of great features, like free person detection, 1080p HD video with a 4K image sensor, and a speaker seven times more powerful than its predecessors. Plus, with Nest Aware, this camera can detect familiar faces, making notifications a lot smarter and more helpful.
