Let's put the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor to the SecurityBaron necessary features test.
Here at Security Baron, we like every camerawe review to have stellar video quality, two-way audio, night vision, local and cloud storage, smart platform integration, artificial intelligence, convenience and value.
Stellar video quality is a Security Baronnecessary feature.
We like to see, at least, 1080p high definitionvideo in a 120-degree field of view.
The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor exceeds that, with1080p with HDR and a 130-degree field of view.
What's HDR? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.
It allows the camera to capture more light.
Those outdoor photos and videos are goingto be that much more detailed.
If that wasn't enough, you also have 12x digitalzoom with the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.
When it comes to video quality, we're givingit full marks.
A Security Baron necessary feature is two-wayaudio.
Two-way audio allows you to hear what's goingon anywhere around your camera's microphone and allows a person on the other end to hearyou speaking or yelling, if need be.
Fortunately, the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor has verycrisp, clear audio quality.
For two-way audio, we have to give it fullmarks.

All right, let's get back to the video.
Night vision is a Security Baron necessaryfeature because you want to be able to see what's going on on your property, be it youryard or inside your home, no matter how dark it is.
Fortunately, the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor has high-poweredinfrared LEDs that make sure that you're having a clear vision of whatever's taking place, no matter how dark it is.
When it comes to Security Baron necessaryfeatures, the night vision, we're giving the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor full marks.
Local and cloud storage are Security Baronnecessary feature.
We like local storage because we think youshould have options on where you place your data or rather where you store it.
However, with Nest Cam IQ, there isn't localstorage option but you do get from the very beginning three hours of free cloud storage.
If you like to increase that, it's $5 a monthfor 5 days of cloud storage, $10 a month for 10 days of cloud storage, and $30 a monthfor 30 days of cloud storage.
However, you wouldn't have to worry aboutthat for one year as you get one year of premium Nest Aware cloud storage with every purchaseof a Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.
When it comes to the Security Baron NecessaryFeature of local and cloud storage, we're giving the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor half marks.
Smart Platform Integration is one of the morefun elements of the Security Baron Necessary Features test that allows you to really getthe most out of your smart home.
Fortunately, the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor integrateswith both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you'll be able to sync everything in yourhome.
Things like the Philips Hue light bulb.
You can make sure that, in conjunction, you'recapturing everything going on around your home.
When it comes to smart platform integration, the Security Baron Necessary Features Test, we're giving the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor fullmarks.
Artificial intelligence is a Security Baronnecessary feature.
Generally, artificial intelligence refersto person detection or facial recognition.
In the case of the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor, itrefers to both.
It does have person detection, so any timeit detects movement, it's not going to give you a notification on your phone for a squirrelor a car passing by your yard.
It's going to say, hey there's a person here.
Then, it's actually going to zoom in on thatmovement so that you can track what is happening on your property.
On top of that, if you get Nest Aware, whichit comes with for one year, you'll also be able to get facial recognition technologyat your fingertips.
When it comes to artificial intelligence forthe Nest Cam IQ Outdoor, we have to give it full marks.
Convenience is a Security Baron NecessaryFeature and the one most related to headaches because you want the installation processto be convenient and you want the day-to-day use to be convenient.
When it comes to installing the Nest Cam IQOutdoor digitally, very simple.
You can have it done in fewer than five minutes.
That being said, you want to note that itis one of the heavier home security cameras that we've ever utilized.
It is especially meant for outdoor use.
That's going to require a little bit longer, possibly more extensive of a physical installation process.
We just wanted to note that.
When it comes to convenience and the NestCam IQ Outdoor, we want to give it full marks.
Value is a Security Baron Necessary Feature.
When you first see that $349 sticker price, it does hit you hard.
We want you to keep in mind the fact thatthis is a part of the Nest ecosystem.
If you're looking at Nest Thermostat, NestIndoor Cam, Nest Outdoor Cam, you have to realize that the Nest Cam IQ is bringing awhole another dimension of artificial intelligence to that ecosystem and it's a hubless camera.
If you actually look at the other camerason the market, it's in line with those prices as an outdoor camera without requiring thathub.

[background music] Gabe: Final element I want to dive in todaywhen we're looking at the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is its mobile application.
The mobile application is where you're goingto get live stream footage, view your cloud-stored videos, and yell at those kids to get offof your lawn.
When it comes to the Google Play Store, peoplelike the Next Cam app.
It's got 3.
7 out of 5 stars, but I can't saythe same in the Apple App Store where it only has 2.
5 out of 5 stars.
I will note that that is trending in a positivedirection as two or three months ago the Nest app was only at 2.
1 out of 5 stars in theApple App Store.
Speaking of which, let's go ahead and checkit out on my iPhone X.
Here we are checking out the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor'smobile application.
You'll see I just started it up.
I call this one Guestroom.
I wanted to give it a little bit of a differentvision.
You can definitely see pretty well what'sgoing on below.
If I go out of here, this is the away calledOutside Intelligence.
Let's go ahead and click in.
You can see what's going on outside here inBrooklyn.
If I wanted to go ahead and look at more eventstoday, I could.
You see all these motion events here.
It's capturing motion, but considering thedistance here you're not worrying about any person detection.
If I go below, I can look at the past fivedays.
I can look at specific people for new peopleI'd seen.
It says here, “Your cameras haven't seen anyonenew yet.
” I can hit the talk button or just create anew clip.
It's going to create a new clip and add thatto my Nest account.
Let's go ahead and see what we get when wefollow people.
Now it's zooming.
This is the auto-zoom feature, which is prettynifty, allows you to do more.
Let's go check out the settings.
I can, of course, set up activity zones.
If I wanted to create a zone here, I wouldsay, “I want to know whenever someone enters the street from over here.
” Now that zone is set, zone one.
Of course, I can check the schedule, notifications, activity zones, familiar faces, turn it on or off.
Once again, I want to note, even Nest willtell you here, use this feature in compliance with the law.
Depending on where you live, you might needto get the consent of people visiting your home.
This is especially true here in Brooklyn, where you may have tons of people passing your home any day.
We can look at the Nest Aware service here.
We can go into close-up tracking view, nightvision, auto-on.
There's a host of different elements to lookat here, in settings.
That's our brief run-down of the mobile applicationfor the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.
Here I am, checking out the Nest Cam IQ Outdoorsdaytime vision.
It's got that 1080P with HDR.
Ultimately, it looks pretty good.
Of course, right now, it's only about fiveto six feet away from me, but let's go ahead and check out that zoom capacity.
We've already seen the auto zoom, but youcan also zoom with your fingers and really get a look at what's happening, Australia, India, Asia.
You see that is capturing most everythingtaking place in this room because it has 130-degree field of view, which is pretty solid.
With that 1080P, this is what you see.
Here I am checking out that solid night visionwith the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.
It has four high-powered infrared LEDs thatseem to be doing the work of about 20 infrared LEDs.
It is a clear picture, and I'm impressed withNest for providing that.
If you look here, I can zoom.
I can zoom into the globe.
You can look at Africa here.
You can see what's happening.
You just note that it's a really good picture.
You would definitely be able to identify mein the dark using this camera.
I would definitively want to reiterate thatI'm impressed with the night vision on the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor.
Now that we've put the Nest Cam IQ Outdoorthrough the gauntlet, I'm going to tell you how I really feel.
It has a bit of sticker shock that comes attached, because it's $349.
I'll say one thing, I actually think it'spretty well valued in the market, because it's giving you that artificial intelligencewith person detection, auto zoom and facial recognition, and a hubless outdoor securitycamera that fits right into the Nest ecosystem.
That really can't be beaten.
When it comes to the Nest Cam IQ, for allthose reasons, I think it's a strong choice for a home security camera.
