Talk to Your Nest Cam IQ With Google Assistant

Like other devices equipped with the Google Assistant, this update allows users to simply say "OK Google", after which you can ask it a question or have it perform a command (like turning on your outside lights or opening the garage door).

But a patent application filed by Google in 2016 floated the possibility of using the video recorded by security cameras to deliver ads based on the kinds of furnishings and other merchandise already in people's homes.

Last September, Nest officially announced that it was planning on updating its Cam IQ indoor security camera to add Google Assistant. To turn it on, browse to settings and hit "Connect Google Assistant". And over that time, we've been working closely with Google to create new ways to control your Nest products with the Google Assistant.

The company is also adding a $5 plan to its Nest Aware subscription service offering five days of 24/7 recording. That's a big deal because your only options previously were plans at $10 for 10 days or $30 for 30 days. It won praise for it's excellent image quality, face recognition technology and the ability to track intruders across a room.

Nest Aware can now tell the difference between people and things.

Privacy watchdogs are particularly anxious that Google eventually may use some of the information collected from devices inside homes to get a better understanding of a person's specific interests so it can sell ads for products that the targeted individual might like.
