Google Home App Camera Video History - Request for Desktop Version

Community Member

This is a request to DEV. In order to find a clip I'm looking for, at times it takes endless scrolling. Yes I know how to optimise activity notifications and use the filters but it's not enough and you end up looking at your phone for longer than recommended. Since video history search requires time and screen review, it is better suited to have a webpage. Additionally, the lack of ability to download a clip or section outside of activity captured is an irritant as well, especially when you are plugged in and supposed to be able to review all footage, not just the events. My workaround currently is to record my phone screen but I have to sit through all the footage at times bc only events are time stamped.

I know I'm not the only one that finds this super annoying. I'm not going to change cameras as I like them otherwise but it kinda defeats the purpose to have to spend hours scrolling for particular incidents that may not be picked up as an event. I am sure this is on someone's project list somewhere. Please move it to higher priority. Thank you. Enjoy the day. M
