                Does nestcam also have home alarms and alert the police if doors are opened, etc?

                  Hi Hayley,
                  You can check the Nest app to see what’s up, but then it’s your call whether or not you want to call your emergency contacts or police.

                Hi

                How much does the installation cost for Nest cameras?

                1. Avatar Safe Home says:

                  Hi Jennifer,
                  There’s no cost, because you install it yourself with step-by-step instructions from Nest.

                Does Nest offer any free plans like Arlo does? I know that Arlo charges for if you get their “smart Plans”or if you wish to keep your recordings in the cloud for more than their free 7 days, or is it only free if I store them local?

                  Hi Keith,
                  You can watch live video without any subscription, but you can’t record any video without paying.

                How much does the service for 2 cameras for a year cost?

                1. Avatar Editor says:

                  Hi DuAnn,
                  That depends on the type of cameras you select, as well as if you get any of the Nest Aware continuous recording plans.

              5. Avatar Kevin Suell says:

                Hello,

                Is the “Nest Aware” subscription per camera or your whole home – 4 cameras total for example?

                Thanks

                1. Avatar Editor says:

                  Hi Kevin,
                  Nest Aware charges per camera, though you can sometimes get discounts on additional camera subscriptions.

                can nest cameras be connected to an external hard drive instead of the cloud?

                1. Avatar Editor says:

                  Hi Cooper,
                  No, that’s not an option with Nest.

                Hi ~ ! I’ve been searching security cameras for my house in addition to my ADT. I don’t care for the ADT camera service at this time so I’m looking into other alternatives. How much does it cost for 2 inside and 2 outside camera’s and a video doorbell?
                Thank you ~

                  Hi Christine,
                  We’re not Nest, so we can’t provide specific quotes for specific packages. You’re welcome to go on Amazon and do some price-checking yourself, though. You can also contact Nest if you’d like help.

                How much is the monthly service cost for my business? I would need 30 days for 5 Nest IQ Indoor cams, what is that total amount monthly and annually? Happy to bundle it with whatever my lower my annual cost, I looking at replacing an NVR based system.

                Also, ideally I need more than 30 days of record time, is there an option to download it for offline viewing or cloud storage?

                Thanks, Paul

                  Hi Paul,
                  We can’t give you a specific price quote, but you can shop Nest via Amazon and check out the prices yourself.

                is there anyone to talk to about a camera that was purchased and owner can not remember password and wants to reinstate now

                  Hi Sidney,
                  If you have a Nest account, you can go to home.nest.com and click on “Forgot password.” Good luck!

              10. Avatar ExPat says:

                Under one Nest account, can I have cameras at two separate locations such as Home and Office? Would it save me any overhead costs or is it better to just have two acciunts? If so, can the same email be used for alerts?

                1. Avatar Editor says:

                  Hi,
                  You can have up to two locations on each Nest account.
