Not getting dismounted camera notifications

I’m getting event notifications, but when I dismount my camera I don’t get any notifications- I have to try to access the camera to see it’s dismounted- is this normal?

Hi Yuyu1,

 

Thanks for visiting the Community. My apologies for the late response here. If you have a Nest Camera (battery) or Nest Doorbell (battery) it must be mounted on the wall plate to display the live video on your Google Home app. Have a look at this article and let us know if you need more help: Tips for camera placement.
 

Thanks,

JT

Hi JT - Sorry if I didn't articulate the issue clearly - let me try again:

When I go into a blind spot and pull the camera off the wall plate while the the camera is on and is set up to send notifications for all events (motion, personal, animal, vehicle) I don't get any notification that the camera has been dismounted, which is a security concern for me.

Thank you for bringing up the concern you're experiencing! I would love to look into this further for you. The first troubleshooting step that I'd recommend would be to restart your device. This process should keep all your settings, and reconnect it to the same Wi-Fi network. This is helpful if it ever freezes, has connection problems, or isn't working normally.


Best regards,
Brad

Hi Brad, Turning the cameras off and on didn't work.  I can still pull my camera off the mount and get absolutely no notification, yet I'm still getting notifications of other activity - person/animal seen, motion, vehicle, etc.
