If we talk about bandwidth then it is basically based on the speed of your internet and how fast connection your Internet service provider is providing you. With these cameras, your internet connection upload bandwidth and download bandwidth will play some important role to record and upload the videos. If you don’t know the speed of your internet connection then you can contact your internet service provider to ask him the data plan that you are using as to use the Nest cams there are some limitations or requirements of internet speeds.
You will be using download bandwidth when you are watching the video in the app of Nest like streaming movies and it also uses a small amount of bandwidth to download software updates and another type of information from the Nest department. If you are connected with 3G or 4G on your device then the Nest app automatically compensates for the slower connection by lowering the quality of the video’s streaming the videos in the cloud after Nest Cam setup which helps to reduce disconnecting, buffering, pauses in a slow internet connection.
The upload bandwidth to the nest service using some of your internet connections’ bandwidth in the process and when you choose bandwidth settings keep it to the maximum video quality for the camera and your camera will adjust the resolution to record the videos automatically as per the bandwidth available at that time. The bandwidth of your camera can be reduced as well, if you are running into bandwidth issues when your camera is uploading the video in the Nest service then you can reduce its quality and bandwidth as per your settings as some internet providers provide you limited data to upload and download per month and if you want to use more data after Nest Cam setup then they will charge your for that and you can also exceed the speed of your internet connection as the data usage of all the cameras can vary depending on the activity it is recording like vehicles passing in the market, people passing by, trees or plants or people etc. When everything is still and quiet and your camera is recording it then it will use more data. It also depends on the subscription of the nest aware like if you are a nest aware them you will use the monthly data consumption but in another case, the camera will upload the video when someone is watching it by which it consumes fewer data.
