Nest Aware catches
everything you missed.

Nest Aware continuously records what’s happening, 24/7, for up to 30 days.1 You can scan through your entire video history – not just clips – to see what you missed. You’ll also get alerts for things that matter, like when your Nest Cam spots a person, or your Nest Hello or Nest Cam IQ detects a familiar face.2

Video history

Never miss a thing.

See what happened with up to 30 days of video history and 24/7 continuous recording. Scan through your entire video history, not just clips. And watch key moments in the Nest app and even share video clips.

Continuous Video Recording

Catch them red-handed.

Nest Aware

Nest Aware continuously records, 24/7.
So you can see everything that happens.

Other services

Other services only record clips, so you miss important video footage before, during and after an event.


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.3

If you have a Nest Cam IQ or Nest Hello, 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.

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 Aware notices a door, it can make an Activity Zone 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.

  • Video streaming, recording and mobile notifications requires working internet and Wi-Fi.
