I want my Nest Doorbell to stream video 24/7 to my Nest Hub Max. I don't want to see anything else on the Nest Hub Max. But it seems that the only way to have the doorbell stream video to the hub is to use a voice command, "Hey Google, show Front Door." The problem is that the Nest Hub Max decides to show me something else after a while or just goes black. Is there some routine I can create or some other method I can use so that I don't have to say anything and the Nest Doorbell simply streams video 24/7 to the Nest Hub Max?
Hi Brad. Thanks for asking. I am still looking for a way to make the Google Nest Hub display the Google Nest Doorbell at my front door all the time, 24/7, without having to say anything to the hub. Right now it just keeps going back to a home screen every so often, and I have to ask it to show the front door. Is there some setting I can use to have it just show the front door all the time?
I stumbled upon this Google Nest Help page, which says:
"To save power, the live video stream will stop automatically:
Looks like user MplsCustomer beat me to it. The information they have shared, is definitely helpful regarding this thread. Look over that article, and let me know if you have further questions.
This process is built in on battery-powered devices, so this isn't a setting you can change. It is capable of showing you 24/7 footage, but it will not stay on screen, as it would use far too much power to make that happen. Sorry for the inconvenience.
@Freethought77 I wanted to follow up and see if you are still in need of any help. Please let me know if you are still having any concerns or questions from here, as I would be happy to take a closer look and assist you further.
I appreciate the help, Brad and MplsCustomer.
