Motion detection announcements

Community Member

Coming over from ring ecosystem and going all in on Nest, I've noticed that there is no way to trigger google home devices to announce when motion is detected. this is crucial because we may not always have our phones nearby to get a notification specially if someone is creeping around in your backyard or porch. Currently the announcements only occur when someone rings a doorbell. The desired implementation should let you choose which speakers or nest hubs to announce on a the announcement would sound "motion detected at the "insert cam name here" (backyard, driveway, etc...) can't believe this was overlooked when comparing feature parities. hope you guys get around to it.
