We’re all spending more time at home these days, and for many of us, that means spending time in our personal spaces and trying to see our loved ones as much as possible. For Google Nest users, it’s about to get a little easier: Starting this week, the new Nest Aware is rolling out to 19 markets. The subscription service is a helpful, affordable companion to all your Google Nest devices whether you’re at home or out.
And even though many of us are at home most of the time, we have several features that make life at home a little easier. Here’s what to expect from the new Nest Aware:
More affordable, easier pricing. Instead of paying per camera, all of your devices per home—including your cameras, speakers, and displays—are included in one low price, even when you add a new device. For just $6 a month (or $60 for an annual subscription), the new Nest Aware comes with 30 days of event video history. Or, for those who want 24/7 video history, you can opt for Nest Aware Plus for 60 days of event video history and 10 days of 24/7 video history for $12 per month (or $120 for an annual subscription).
Get alerts about it. With the new Nest Aware, your devices will now start recording event clips when they detect motion or sound and give you the clips you need to watch. When something happens that needs your attention — like a package being delivered — we’ll send you an alert. If you prefer 24/7 continuous recording, for example, on your outdoor camera at night, this is also available with Nest Aware Plus.
Keep an eye on your home and contact emergency services immediately. Now, your Nest speakers and displays will send alerts to the Home app to notify you if an important sound is detected, like a smoke alarm or breaking glass. From there, you can listen to an audio clip or listen live within the Home app to confirm the alarm, and the new Nest Aware lets you call 911 emergency services from the Home app (US only). Calling directly from your phone will connect you to the center closest to you, which isn’t always helpful when you’re away. But calling from the Home app will get you the hub closest to home, no matter where you are.
Take care of loved ones. If your elderly parent or relative has a Nest Hub Max, not only can they stay in touch with their loved ones through Duo video calling, but you can also search for them with the new Nest Aware. All they have to do is invite you as a household member and turn on your speaker or display, and you’ll receive notifications if something needs your attention.
Easily upgrade from old to new. If you already have a Nest Aware subscription, you can upgrade to the new version through the Google Store. Keep in mind that upgrading to the new Nest Aware requires you to switch to a Google Account if you haven’t already. You also have the option to keep your existing membership if you choose.
In addition to rolling out the new Nest Aware, we’ve updated pricing for some of our products to make it even easier to bring more support into your home: Starting today, Nest Hub is available for $89.99 and Nest Cam Indoor is now $129.99 Is. We hope the new Nest Aware helps you save a little more, take care of your loved ones and know that everything is fine wherever you call.
