  • Get alerts when something happens

    You can’t always be watching your video feed. So Nest Cam looks for motion and listens for sound. If something’s up, it sends an alert to your phone.

  • Night Vision done right

    Night Vision LEDs let you see the whole room at night compared to other cameras that give you a limited spotlight view.

  • Talk and listen

    Nest Cam has a mic and speaker. So you can hear what’s going on and talk back using the Nest app. When someone is about to speak, Nest Cam will chime to get your attention.

  • Video History

    Other cameras only start recording if there’s motion. The trouble is, motion detection isn’t always perfect, so if your camera misses something, you will too. With Nest Aware, Nest Cam continuously records 10 or 30 days of footage. And because it saves to the cloud instead of a memory card, you can store more video and see what happened even if your camera is stolen.

  • Alert summary

    If something happens, you can quickly scan through your Video History to find it. Nest Aware highlights moments when there's motion or sound and shows you what happened.

  • Activity Zones

    Highlight the areas you care about and get personalized alerts when something happens there.

  • Clips

    Save, download and share clips: If your kid or pet did the cutest thing ever, you can save a clip and share it with friends over email, Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.

  • Timelapse

    Turn a sunset, party, or day in your life into a short timelapse clip.
