The IQ looks a lot like the Nest Cam Outdoor, but is an indoor security camera.

It has a 4K image sensor, as well as optional facial recognition (available to Nest Aware subscribers).

The power adapter should be easier to access, too, thanks to a design upgrade that sticks the port in the camera's base.
