Access live feed without ability to control

Community Member

Why can I not give access to someone without giving them full control?

I have a workshop that is used by a limited team and I would like each member to have access to the live feed without being able to control, manipulate, delete members or turn off the cameras.

Why is this not easily available and will it ever be?

I agree, why not just add a tab with limited access and then link a camera or doorbell or lock to that person- it can’t be as difficult as they made the google app compared to the nest app which was super simple to use!

Completely agree.  Many users have been asking for this for well over year and so far NOTHING.   You may need to consider other solutions until such time that Google adds this strongly needed enhancement.
