Google unveils 2nd-gen Nest Cam wired security camera

Google has recently unveiled the second-generation Nest Cam, a wired security camera for indoor use.

The new Nest Cam has an adaptable design for tabletops or walls, and it comes in four colors: Snow, Linen, Fog, and Sand with a maple wood base.

Google claims that the new Nest Cam has ten times more machine learning power than the previous generation, with enhanced HDR video quality and processes events on-device.

This security camera captures 1080p HD video – day or night, and it can detect people, animals, and vehicles. In addition, it also has three hours of event video history and the ability to create Activity Zones without the need for a subscription. Moreover, it also has local storage backup.


The Nest Cam is built specifically for the Google Home app, where users can view and control the camera anytime. Users may also choose which notifications they want to receive, set up Activity Zones, and view their whole home history across their compatible devices, like displays, thermostats, and new Nest Cams and Doorbell.

Meanwhile, a Nest Aware subscription expands event video history to 30 days, and a Nest Aware Plus subscription provides 60 days of event video history and ten days of continuous video history. Both subscriptions also come with Familiar Face detection to help the cameras identify people you know.

The Nest Cam (indoor, wired) is priced starting at USD 99.99, and it is now available on the Google Store and at select retailers in the US. There’s no word about its local pricing and availability.
