Nest has updated their iOS app to now allow Nest Cam and Nest Hello video doorbell users to create and edit Activity Zones from their iPhone or iPad. Previously, this feature was only available via the Nest website on the web.
The ability to create Nest Cam Activity Zones requires a Nest Aware subscription, which continuously records 24/7 for up to 30 days. Subscribers are able to see their entire video history in a timeline, while face detection is also available with push alerts.
Nest Aware subscriptions start at $5 per month (or $50/year) for 5-day video history, while 10-day and 30-day history options are available for $10 per month ($100/year) and $30 per month ($300/year) respectively.
The update means all you need to do is select a camera, then tap settings, and head to the Activity Zones menu. You’ll be able to edit existing zones or add new ones. Each zone is colour coordinated and four zones are available per camera.
