Hello, I have a Lorex Camera system as well as 2 Google Nest Hubs. It says the Lorex and Nest are compatible and everything goes right with setup in linking Lorex to Home app. However when I instruct my nest to show me driveway camera or front door camera it gives an error message. When I click the cameras in Home app I get a “cannot reach camera” message. Why is this? My Lorex NVR is directly into a router and on same wi-fi as the Nest and my phone.
Thanks for reaching out. Let's sort this out.
Quick question: can you view your Lorex camera in the native app? Try the steps below:
Let me know how it goes.
So I can access Lorex cameras in my Lorex App but not in Google Home app. My hub is pretty close to the NVR for the camera system like in the same room close. Also I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and unlinked and relinked Lorex to my Google Home app with no success still. On an android based phone the Lorex account won’t even link to my Google Home app. It goes through the steps but never actually links up.
I called Google customer support and they said since a recent update to the Nests some of the various camera systems were having issues and that they need to release a patch for the bug. It’s been about a week since the date the update was supposed to come out and still has not resolved my issues.
Thanks for the additional information. Could you try to use a different mobile phone if one is available and test? Also, please provide the Google Home app version and cast firmware version of your Nest Hub.
