What makes it so smart? Well, the IQ of­fers 24/7 live streaming, night vi­sion and high-pow­ered video tech that Nest calls Su­per­sight, which com­bines a 4K sen­sor with HDR and in­tel­li­gent imag­ing, all backed by a hexa-core Qual­comm pro­ces­sor. It also uses fa­cial recog­ni­tion tech to tell the dif­fer­ence be­tween who’s wel­come in your home and who isn’t. You can pro­gramme Nest Aware (monthly sub­scrip­tion fee re­quired) with the faces of any­one who needs reg­u­lar ac­cess to your home with­out set­ting alarm bells ring­ing. The Cam IQ will no­tify you when fam­ily mem­bers or friends have ar­rived home. If it spots an in­truder, it will au­to­mat­i­cally zoom in and fol­low their ac­tiv­ity, ping­ing an alert to your smart­phone. It will then use a pow­er­ful, loud speaker to scare off said un­de­sir­able. It also uses noise can­cel­la­tion and echo sup­pres­sion on the HD Talk and Lis­ten au­dio feed, so you can hear in­trud­ers clearly — and they can hear you when you tell them you’ve called the po­lice.
