Latest interesting news for those with Nest cams around the house – a new, cheaper Nest Aware (read: the cloud recording service that also gives the camera a bit more smarts) plan is on the way.
Nest has long provided two plans: a $10/month plan that helps you store the last 10 days of video history, and a $30/month plan that provides you 30 days of video history. This new plan will charge $5 per month and, as you’ve probably concluded, will provide you five days of video history.
This is something folks have been logging for a while now. Most people don’t really need 10 days or more of their video logs; in most cases, the bit of security footage you’re most interested in is from the last day or two. It’s also great news for those with multiple Nest cams — each one requires its own Nest Aware subscription, so that $10 per month minimum added up fast.
Additionally to the cloud video recording, a Nest Aware subscription also taps the cloud to teach the Nest Cam a few new tricks: it lets you set “Activity Zones” (letting you set up alerts when there’s motion in certain areas like, say, a door way), create timelapses and it can try to tell whether that thing moving around your living room is a person or just your dog.
