Learn about free video streaming for Nest cameras

  • Straight out of the box, you can watch your Nest camera’s live video stream for free.
  • If want to go back and view recorded video, you can view snapshots of events up to 3 hours in the past. 
  • If it’s your first camera, you’ll also be able to use a free trial Nest Aware subscription for a limited time. Depending on your region, a free trial may be unavailable due to privacy restrictions.

Subscribe to view recorded video

To view video saved in the cloud after the trial period has ended, you can purchase a Nest Aware subscription. Depending on what subscription you choose, your camera will either save clips of events, or continuous video whenever your camera is on.

Important: While watching Nest camera’s live video is free and does not require a Nest Aware subscription, watching live or recorded video over a 3G or 4G cellular connection will use data from your data plan. Please be aware that there could be additional charges from your mobile service provider if your data usage goes over your usage cap. Check with your mobile service provider to learn more about your data plan and any fees that might apply.
