    Security light


    If it’s dark and Nest Cam notices movement, it triggers the lights inside and outside your home after a short delay to make the intruder think you are there. Don’t worry, we’ll turn them off again 15 minutes after motion stops.

    Leave home worry-free


    Set your Hue lights to switch off automatically when Nest detects you’ve left home - you’ll never have to remember to turn off the lights again. And while you’re away, we’ll mimic your presence to make it seem like you’re home.

    Lights out -


    If your Nest Cam sees there has been no movement or noise in the room for a while, it fades off the lights in order to save you energy.

    Protect light


    Set your Nest Protect to give you a heads up by flashing your Hue lights yellow when it detects hazard. In case of an alarm, the lights will flash red before going to dimmed red which is best to help navigate smoke.
