Feature Request: Manual Event/Recording for Nest Cams/Doorbells

Community Member


It would be great to have a feature to manually record images/videos from Google Nest cameras or doorbells and to save onto device. It would be also fine to be able to manually initiate an event that can be then downloaded through the regular event history.

More advanced would be to have a timer for such an event recording or to be able to schedule an event. As an example, a beautiful rare bird comes in sight in the mornings and I would like to catch it on video.
