Nest Aware catches
everything that you've 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've missed. You'll also receive alerts for things that matter, such as when your Nest Cam spots a person, or Nest Cam IQ detects a familiar face.2

Video history

Never miss a thing.

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

Catch them red-handed.

Continuous video recording

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 fewer alerts.

Nest Aware algorithms can tell a person from something else and can even recognise the sound of a person talking or a dog barking.

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

Activity Zones

Highlight important areas.

Create Activity Zones around important areas, such as cots or windows, and receive 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 that you can share with friends and family.

  • Video streaming, recording and mobile notifications require working Internet and Wi-Fi.
  • Familiar face alerts require a Nest Aware subscription.
