Nest on Wednesday introduced an outdoor surveillance camera to complement its indoor Nest Cam.
The Nest Cam Outdoor will go on sale this fall for US$199. It is easy to mount on any outdoor surface, according to the company, and even has a magnetic base for attaching to gutters.
The camera, which resembles a unit of track lighting, can capture 1080p video. It has live-streaming capabilities, as well as two-way audio. It has a 130-degree field of view and includes night vision support.
Power to the WiFi camera is provided through a 25-foot cable.
“Nest Cam Outdoor is one of the first, if not the first, security camera to offer features such as Talk and Listen and person alerts,” said Nest Product Manager Mehul Nariyawala.
