Nest launched the Cam IQ last year as its first device with facial recognition, and over time, it's gotten more features like Google Assistant integration.

Nest's been in the news a lot lately, with word that it's being folded into Google's hardware division closely followed by the announcement that its last remaining founder is leaving the company. Nest's in that position because of its great connected home products, and thanks to a new app update they stand to get even better.

The Nest Cam IQ already has a lot of smarts built-in, but it's getting even smarter with a new update.

You can preorder it now for $349, and it'll ship this November. Read More
We posted some details of Nest's upcoming 4K camera last week, and now it's official. The Nest Cam IQ isn't just a tweaked version of the old camera, it introduces completely new features to the Nest lineup. The video is sharper, the software is smarter, and it's more expensive. That last part might not be your favorite, but $299 (or $498 for 2) is what it'll cost you to get this device. Read More
