How Does the Nest Cam Work?
Your security camera shouldn’t sleep on the job. Nest Cam Indoor plugs into power so you never worry about dead batteries.
Does the Nest Cam Record Everything?
Some cameras can’t stay on all the time because they rely on batteries, so they only start recording when they sense motion. But if they miss something, you do, too. With a Nest Aware subscription, Nest Cam continuously records 24/7. And saves up to 30 days of footage securely in the cloud. So you never miss a thing.
Does the Nest Cam Send Alerts?

And if you miss an alert, you can see photos of activity from the last three hours for free in the Nest app.
