All notifications in 1 place

Does anyone know if there's a way to get all of my notifications in 1 place?

I currently have 2 Google Hub Max, 1 Doorbell (wired) and then I just bought a Google Outdoor Cam with the Floodlight.

The Floodlight won't show in the "Nest" app and is giving me notifications of movement/activity through Google Home. However, the other 3 cameras (Doorbell & 2 Hub Max) show in the Nest app AND the Google Home app, but won't show movement notifications through anything other than the Nest App.

It seems kinda wonky to have to have to use more than 1 app to view my "Google" camera notifications (It would make sense if I was using other-branded hardware, but they're all Google devices).

Anyone know of a fix?

Thanks

There is no fix. This 2-app approach is Google Nest's current strategy, as we discovered to our surprise when we bought a Google Nest Camera (Battery) almost 5 months ago and learned it works ONLY in the Google Home app and NOT in the Google Nest app or on the home.nest.com website. Google Nest says they're working on a better solution.

Google Nest has posted its rationale on these blogs in this forum, where you can also see customers' reactions:
