New routines in Home app for nest cam control

Community Member

It's great to see that I can finally set schedules for my newer nest cam and doorbell in the Home app by creating a Household routine to turn them on/off at specific times. However, I work shifts so I want to be able to turn them on/off using a switch as a trigger. I have virtual switches setup on Smartthings to turn on/off Smartthings Home Security and Google Home recognises and can control them but if I try to setup an Automation in Google Home using the switch as a trigger to turn on/off the nest cam it just flags up an error. The only trigger I've found to work to control the cam is a time based trigger 😕
