What it can do:
Who’s in the garden? With 24/7 live view and 3 hours of free event video history,3 Nest Cam helps you look after your home. And you can tailor alerts so you only get pings about important things.1
24/7 continuous video history requires a Nest Aware Plus subscription and that your camera be wired for continuous power (the subscription and accessory cable for continuous power are sold separately).
Nest Cam has built-in intelligence to send you alerts for people, animals, and vehicles. With Nest Aware, it will even recognize familiar faces.4 Select an area you want to check on around or in your home, like your driveway or living room, and then customize which alerts you’ll receive.
HDR and night vision help with bright, high-contrast sunlight, and give you a better image even in low light and darkness.3 Day or night, you can easily tell who is on or near your property.
If you miss a notification, you can still see what happened with 3 hours of free event video history.3 And you can add a Nest Aware subscription to get up to 60 days of event video history and 10 days of 24/7 video history.4
