The Nest Cam IQ has a 1/2.5-inch, 8-megapixel 4K colour sensor with 12x digital zoom and enhance, as well as HDR.

Plus, with a new feature called "Supersight", while you're checking in on the app to get a live view of the Nest Cam IQ's feed, you'll get a picture-in-picture inset of any people in frame tracked close-up, in addition to a 130-degree wide-angle look at the whole field of view the camera can capture.

The Nest Cam IQ is the newest camera from the company, and it contains a host of new and upgraded features over the original Nest Cam Indoor.

Nest on Wednesday announced the Nest Cam IQ, its latest security camera with support for recording 4K video that will be released in select markets in the coming weeks.

The Nest Cam IQ can now spot a person in-camera, sending a Person alert.

The Nest Cam IQ is outfitted with a six-core processor that's capable of running some algorithms locally, instead of in the cloud.

As we mentioned, there are three microphones on board, as well as a speaker that is claimed to be seven times more powerful than the one in the Nest Cam Indoor.

Reports of a new Nest camera leaked out last week.

Nest's latest home camera is the super smart Nest Cam IQ

The Cam IQ is available for pre-order in the USA at the price of $299, in the United Kingdom for £299, and in France, Netherlands, Belgium and Republic of Ireland for €349. It's the "familiar person" detection that requires a Nest Aware subscription.

The $299 Nest Cam IQ is available for preorder today, and the company said it should ship mid-June.

Nest Cam IQ is the third product from the manufacturer which started off its business with a thermostat. In a demo, Nest showed its camera zooming in on the face of someone pretending to rob a home with a Nest set up. There's a multicolor LED on the outer rim that lets you know when the Nest Cam IQ's camera is active. The company expects to deliver the camera in about a month (we've been told we'll have review units in mid June). As with many Nest products, bundling will save you money - a two pack goes for $498.

This is a security camera with all the bells and whistles, and now the question is whether this functionality will all seamlessly kick in when you need it most.

The model announced Wednesday has a new design based on the look of Nest's outdoor camera, which launched previous year.

But after seeing it in action, the real benefit of the extra resolution are features like Supersight and familiar face alerts. At launch, audio features will still follow a walkie-talkie approach, where you push a button each time you want to talk, but a software update this sumer will bring full duplex audio, meaning you'll just have to press a button once to talk, as you would in a Google Hangout. Audio alerts can be sent when the camera's microphones recognize a person speaking or a dog barking out of range, filtering out a podcast or radio station in the next room. Nest Cam Indoor and Nest Cam Outdoor will continue to be available for $199 USA, €199 EU/£159 United Kingdom on nest.com.

Nest's $10-a-month subscription includes video storage for 10 days.
