Wired indoor Nest Cam: notification overload

Community Member

Hi, I've had my two nest Wired indoor cameras now for quite  some time. I pay for the better subscription and have never had any issues until about a month maybe two months ago. I've always had my settings as follows: cameras both on while away and home. I do not use home/away assist. When I leave I would manually switch the setting to Away so that I would receive notifications for selected activities I wanted to be aware of happening if I was not at home. When I'd get home I'd change my setting on main Nest app home page back to Home manually as I did when leaving and choosing Away. The notifications would then stop because why would I need to be notified the camera sees me when I'm home? I wouldn't and I don't want to be notified while at home but no matter what settings I have tried and it's all of them I can't get my notifications to work as they once did. Unless I go in and turn all notifications off home or away for people sound motion zones blah blah blah etc... Why does my phone still notify me it see's someone (me) when I have my app set back to me being home and chose the option to only be notified when away. Please send a response that is not a generic apology and obvious steps to take that I've clearly already done hence the reason  I'm on here asking. I did nothing different to make the notifications ignore my choices. It just one day stopped working correctly.
