The Nest Aware subscription that tags along with Tata Play Secure+ lets you keep recorded events of up to 30 or 60 days (depending on your plan). Nest Aware also brings features like familiar face detection. Tata claims that Nest’s maintenance, after-sales, and customer care services will be managed by Tata Play. It means you can directly contact Tata Play staff for any required help with Nest Cam and Nest Aware.
