How Nest does it

How others do it

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 subscription. So you see the full story, not just part of happened.

Clip recording

Some cameras only record if they sense motion. But they might not catch the whole event. And if they miss something, you will too.

Cloud storage

With Nest Aware, Nest Cam safely and securely stores your Video History in the cloud, so you can access it any time.

Local storage

If a camera stores video on a memory card and is stolen, there’s no way to go back and see what happened.

Custom alerts

With Nest Aware, you can create Activity Zones to help you keep an eye on specific areas, like a door or window.

Generic alerts

Most cameras can only tell if there’s motion, not where it’s coming from. So you constantly get alerts you don’t care about.

Crisp 1080p video

Nest Cam’s high-quality glass lens, image sensor, and 8X digital Clear Zoom let you see every detail in full 1080p HD.

Low-quality video

Some cameras say they have HD, but their sensors and plastic lenses give you a lower image quality.

Bright, clear Night Vision

Eight infrared LEDs help you see the whole room, even when it’s pitch black.

Grainy video at night

Some cameras give you a pixelated spotlight view when it’s dark.

Versatile stand

The Nest Cam stand can go on a wall, tripod or shelf. Or you can stick it to something magnetic.

Fixed stand

Other cameras are clunky and have limited mounting options and viewing angles.
