I have Nest Gen 1 Cameras and get emails for any motion detected by the cameras. I have set up several Nest Cam (battery) using the Google Home app and can not find a way to get email notifications for these new cameras. I get a Google Home notification on my phone, but for historical record I want to get emails also. Is there any way to get emails from these Nest Cam (battery)?
When Google Nest decided that its newer cameras and doorbells would work ONLY in the Google Home app and NOT in the Google Nest app, email notifications was one of several functions that was lost.
So no, we can't get email notifications for our newer cameras and doorbells, unless Google Nest is adding that back in the upcoming upgrade to the Google Home app: https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Blog/Recap-Introducing-the-new-Google-Home-app-and-Nest-devic... and https://www.googlenestcommunity.com/t5/Blog/Top-Google-Home-app-questions-for-Nest-app-and-Nest-came...
