Add a FALL DETECTION algorithm

I have two indoor, wired Nest Cams monitoring my elderly dad in his house (with his consent, of course). I really want to be able to receive notifications of any sudden movement when he's moving about, especially what could be a fall. (He's stumbled or fallen a couple times, and the last one caused an injury. I got him an Apple Watch with the Fall Detection feature, but he kept forgetting to put it on, so it ended up being useless. Wearable devices don't work if they're not worn.) Having a Nest Cam be able to detect potential falls could save lives. If Google Nest can send notifications with the video clips for immediate review, then we can confirm whether or not it captured a fall or injury (thus helping to train that algorithm), and then call for help if it looks like a fall.

Hi again,

Although the Google Nest team can't reply to all submitted feedback they definitely do read them all. I have submitted feedback myself also suggesting what I think is a great feature that hopefully they consider adding.
