The Nest way

The wrong way

24/7 live streaming

Nest Cam plugs in so it doesn’t run out of power. And you can check in as much as you want.

Limited streaming

Cameras that rely on batteries give you limited streaming to conserve power. And what happens if they die when you’re on vacation?

24/7 continuous recording

With Nest Aware, you see the full story, not just part of what happened.

Records event snippets

Some cameras only record if they sense motion. But if they miss something, you will too.

Person alerts

With Nest Aware, Nest Cam can tell the difference between a person and a thing. So you know if there’s actually someone there.

Generic alerts

Some cameras can only tell if there’s motion, so you don’t know the difference between a person and a tree swaying.

Two-way audio

Hear what’s happening and let a stranger know you’re paying attention.

No audio

So you can’t listen in or talk to get someone’s attention.
