Following our report that Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is sold out, Google today confirmed that it is sold out. Nest also revealed for 9to5Google that it is planning a “new series of security cameras for 2021.”
Nest first announced Cam IQ in June 2017 as an upgrade over the entry line with security cameras. Later in September, a Cam IQ Outdoor variant was unveiled. The company confirmed to us that it has since sold out for that model, and that existing owners will see “continuous feature support, software updates and critical security updates.”
Google today also revealed that “Nest will continue to invest in new innovations.”
This announcement of new Nest Cams later this year comes when Google in August last year announced a strategic partnership with ADT. The two are working on a new security solution that will see professional technicians “sell and install devices such as Nest cameras and Nest Hub Max.”
Google’s current camera line today starts at $ 129.99 Nest Cam Indoor, which received a price drop of $ 70 in May. There are also Nest Cam Outdoor and Nest IQ Indoor. While the last hardware update was in late 2017, Google added a year later to Cam IQ Indoor to make it a smart speaker-like device.
Meanwhile, in 2020, Google renewed its Nest Aware subscription with a fixed pricing model that covers all products. Two levels separate whether the history video history is stored for 30 or 60 days. The latter offer (Aware Plus) also includes 10 days of 24/7 video history. The registration plan costs $ 6 / month, while the prize is $ 12 / month with an annual option available. Elsewhere in the Nest family, a new $ 129.99 thermostat and Nest Audio speaker was launched last year.
Looking ahead, a Google Smart Display went through the FCC yesterday. A new Nest Hub could join Google’s 2021 security cameras in the coming months.
