What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • No local storage: You won’t be able to have the footage automatically upload to a micro-SD card.
  • Only paid person detection: Although artificial intelligence capabilities are available for the Nest Cam Outdoor, you’ll have to pay a minimum of $6 a month to get them.
  • Discontinued: Nest no longer sells the Nest Cam Outdoor. Instead, you’ll have to buy it from a third-party seller. If you like what you see in the Nest Cam Outdoor, though, you’ll likely think the same about Nest’s newer and more affordable cameras.

Bottom Line

Want to save money but still get the high quality of Google Nest cameras? Meet the Nest Cam Outdoor, which has 1080p HD video, integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant plus optional person detection to boot.
