There are two different subscription packages that you can choose from.
Both come with the same features, with the only difference being how long recordings are stored in the cloud.
Also, you can also take advantage of “activity zones”, which allow you to highlight a certain portion of what the Nest Cam can see and receive motion alerts if anything is detected within that specific area.

No, it isn't a ton of time, but it's a significant step for folks who want advanced features without paying a monthly fee for them.
Instead of 3 hours of storage, though, you'll instead get access to sound- and motion-related activity.
That's especially true when a growing number of DIY security brands are offering short-duration cloud storage for free.
Icontrol's Piper Classic and Piper NV let customers save as many as 1,000 event-triggered clips for free.
Homeboy, Netgear's Arlo and Arlo Q cameras and plenty others are making limited, rolling cloud storage a part of their features, too.
Now Nest is going to give customers 3 hours of free cloud storage.

Nest Aware is also pretty much a must if you have the newer Nest Cam IQ and want to take advantage of its face-recognition technology, as that’s the only way to get the feature.
Here's a quick rundown of what Sightline plans to offer Nest Aware customers: In addition to Sightline, Nest's alerts have expanded to include Person Alerts.
