Unfamiliar face detection alert on, familiar face detection alert off

Community Member

I don't need to know when people I deem familiar, are detected by the camera. This is an unnecessary annoyance and I'd like to be able to turn these messages off. When an unfamiliar face is detected by the camera, I'd like to know, send me a push notification. A setting differentiating between the two scenarios would help to reduce alerts that I perceive to be annoying and will pass on complaints when recommending this product to friends. There should be a toggle switch for notifications of familiar faces and a separate toggle switch for notifications for unfamiliar faces.

Hi TurboMcJasonfac,


I’m sorry for the delay. I totally understand that these are good features to use with your Nest cameras, but these features are not available. I'd suggest you submit feedback about it. Let us know if you have other questions and concerns otherwise, I will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
