Wi-Fi connection.
Working broadband internet connection with at least 2 Mbps upload
speed (DSL may not qualify).

Bandwidth requirements
At 720p, each camera requires 200 to 500 Kbps of upload bandwidth
while streaming video.
At 1080p, each camera requires 450 to 1200 Kbps of upload bandwidth
while streaming video.
Cameras will use more bandwidth to stream video when there is more
motion in the scene.
If you subscribe to Nest Aware, your camera streams all video to the
cloud for secure offsite storage. At 720p, each camera could use 60GB
to 160GB of upload bandwidth per month. At 1080p, each camera
could use 140GB to 380GB of upload bandwidth per month.

1. Camera
     Weatherproof camera head with
     attached 10-foot USB cable.

2. Magnetic mount
     Unique double-sided magnet, so you can
     point the camera exactly where you like.

3. Weatherproof adapter and cable
     15-foot cable you can leave out in the rain.

4. Cable clips
     Secure your cable so it’s neat,
     tidy and tamper resistant.

5. Anchors and screws
     Exactly as many as you need.

Up and running in four simple steps.

1. Set up your camera in the Nest app.
Power up your camera indoors and connect it to the free Nest app.
2. Choose a good spot.
Check the Nest app to make sure you’re able to stream video from that spot.
3. Install the camera.
Make sure you’ve got the right angle (check the app), then screw in the camera and adapter to your wall. Or if you’ve got a magnetic surface nearby, you can skip drilling and just stick the camera onto the mount.
4. Share the feed with your family.
Invite your family to join your Nest Account. They can make clips, review video history and help keep an eye on things.
