A:AnswerDoubleA, that will largely depend on if you pay for their recording services or not. You get 30 days of Nest Aware for free, and while you have that or any other subscription, it actually records 24 hours a day, but how long that video is kept is dependent on which package you're paying for. You also have some liberties in setting up what you want to be alerted for as the Nest can determine the difference between a person and a pet, and can alert you only if it sees a person nearby, or if it detects any motion at all. If anyone rings it, it will automatically notify you and provide a clip of that person walking up to the door.
A:AnswerOnce the person at the door presses the doorbell, it starts listening. You then get an alert on your phone that you can tap to run the Nest app and view who is at the door. At that point, you can tap the microphone and begin speaking to the person. The person on the outside doesn't need to keep pressing anything, the Nest is listening. The only thing you need to do on your end is activate the microphone with one tap. You can have a conversation with the person at the door. You can then deactivate the mic by tapping the mic button on your phone.
A:AnswerYes and no. You don’t have to pay but if you want the camera to record 24/7, then yes you pay. Otherwise it will be just a video doorbell and not a camera that continuously records. I pay $50/yr for 5 days. You could pay $100/yr for 10 days, or $300/yr for 30 days.
