It’s even possible to create a zone which doesn’t trigger the motion sensor, for example if part of the frame looks out onto a busy road.
Finally, with familiar face alerts you can monitor who is coming in and going out of your house at any time.
For example, if movement is detected the Nest Cam can be programmed to switch some or all of the lights on in the property.

While the Nest Cam IQ doesn’t have a built in alarm, it does offer two-way audio so you can always try to deter any burglars by shouting at them, presumably until they realise they can unplug your camera and steal it.
Both the camera and the app feel very well designed.
Weight: 357g There is something extremely reassuring about the construction of the Nest Cam IQ.
Clearly the manufacturer has learned from Apple, housing the IQ in a solid two-part box like the i Phone.
Made from white polycarbonate, it feels very well built and features a stand for placing on a flat surface such as kitchen worktop or living room mantelpiece. Just download the Nest app (Android or i OS) and scan the QR code on the bottom to add it as a device.
Alternatively, it’s possible to add the device manually from the list provided.
It’s even possible to hone in parts of the screen thanks to a 12 x digital zoom facility.
