Recording table tennis games

Community Member

Hi, I'm looking to purchase a Nest camera to record table tennis matches in my office. The camera would be placed pointed at the table and the hope is it would record games as events.


First of all do you think this is a plausible use?


And second, if so, how long can an event last? If we're in front of the camera playing table tennis, for say 20 minutes, will the whole thing get recorded as one event?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, a Nest camera can be used to record table tennis matches in an office. It is a plausible use as Nest cameras are designed to capture and record events that occur within its field of view. The duration of the event recorded by the camera will depend on the storage capacity of the device and the settings configured in the Nest app. By default, Nest cameras will record continuously until it runs out of storage space or until the user stops the recording. However, the Nest app also allows users to set up specific recording schedules or trigger recordings based on motion or sound detection.
