Nest’s outdoor camera now available in the UK for £159

Nest has finally launched its outdoor security camera in the UK alongside an introductory offer that takes £20 off the total cost of the lightly ruggedised cam.

Admittedly, the introductory discount means that the outdoor camera is currently exactly the same price as the indoor one, but with the additional outdoor protection of waterproofing. Aside of that it offers the same 3-megapixel sensor, 130-degree field-of-view and 8 infrared LEDs to provide a night vision mode.

You’ll receive alerts on your phone via the Nest app whenever it detects movement, but the Google-owned company says it has the smarts to distinguish between a person and other moving objects or animals. And, of course, there’s the option of subscribing to Nest’s full cloud backup plan that keeps a copy of all recorded activity.

Just like the indoor camera, you can also use it to speak and listen to whoever is at the camera without going outside.

If you already have other Nest devices, like the Protect or Thermostat, opting for the outdoor camera over rivals is a no-brainer.
