It has been a few years since Google’s Nest Aware plans, a premium product that has been streamlined and made more accessible, underwent a major overhaul and became online.
There are currently two tiers of Nest Aware service.
The cheapest option is Nest Aware, which cover all your Nest home security cameras and stores 30 days of event video history for $6 per month (or £5 in the UK).
Additionally, for an additional $12 / £10 each month, you can upgrade to Nest Aware Plus and save 60 days of event video history and ten days of 24/7 video history.
A subscription in two sizes.
Get extra event video history. 24/7 coverage and more. Choose the plan that works for you.
$6/month $60/year (Save $12 annually)
|Nest Aware Plus
$12/month $120/year (Save $24 annually)
|Event video history|
|30 days||60 days|
|24/7 video history|
|No||Up to 10 days|
Alternatively, you may pay $5 per month for five days of video history or $10 per month for ten days.
With only two cameras, the savings and advantages are clear; with more Nest devices, they become enormous.
See the graphic for an example of the savings made by subscribing annually. In the United States, a Nest membership costs $60 per year, with the Plus plan costing an additional $120.
Both levels have access to features like Intelligent Alerts and Activity Zones. Still, with the new Nest Aware plans, Google has included event-based recordings as an alternative to continuous recording that only begins when the camera detects motion or sound.
Initially, the new Nest Aware was available in the following 19 countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Spain, United States, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, United Kingdom, Sweden, and Switzerland.
If you already have a subscription to Nest Aware, you may change your plan via the Google Play store.
Be warned, however, that if you haven’t previously done so, you’ll need to switch from a Nest to a Google account to use Nest Aware.
Don’t worry; your existing subscription will be retained if you want.
In a recent announcement, Google said that it would soon require two-factor authentication (2FA) for access to Nest accounts.
Additionally, the new Nest Cams no longer charge extra for premium features.
Probably the most notable change with the newest iteration of Nest’s three cams is that the previously paid-for monthly intelligent alerts for people, animals, cars, and parcels are now entirely free.
