Intelligent alerts*

Know more.
Get alerted less.

Nest Aware algorithms can tell a person from a thing and can even recognize the sound of a person talking or a dog barking.

If you have a Nest Cam IQ, you already have person alerts. Nest Aware can make them better with familiar face alerts, so you’ll get a notification if your camera sees a family member – or a stranger.

*Streaming, recording and mobile notifications require a working Wi-Fi connection.

Familiar face alerts require a Nest Aware subscription.

Video history

Record everything.
Just in case.

Store up to 30 days of continuous video in the cloud. And quickly find key moments in the Nest app.

Activity Zones

Highlight important areas.

Create Activity Zones around important areas, like cribs or windows, and get special alerts when something happens there. Or if Nest notices a door, it can make one for you.


All the unexpected moments.

Turn any part of your video history into a clip or timelapse you can share with friends, family or the police.

Don’t forget the camera.

Look after home, inside and out.
