Not picking up events

Community Member

Hey! Have recently got a nest cam indoor/outdoor battery as we had an attempted break in. But it seems to be having trouble picking up events. The only time that they seem to register is when we are viewing the live stream of the camera. Apart from that it doesn’t really pick up any events, even when we have everything turned on. I’ve tried switching between home and away mode, we got the nest subscription. Have tried moving it to multiple locations with no such luck.

Also as a side question, by having it plugged in to the cord that comes with the camera doesn’t seem to enable wired/continuous power. Do you need to only buy the outdoor cord for this to work?
