Similar issue with the new wire indoor camera. All the older cameras still work with Alexa but none of the new ones sink to the google home app.
I am having problems adding the 2021 model cameras to Alexa control. Tried to disable and reenable the nest camera app. Only picks up the older cameras and thermostats. Hoping google resolves issue quickly…
Indeed, same problem with me and the new Nest Indoor wired camera, bought it to use as a nanny cam and my Alexa show but it is useless, I cannot connect to Alexa skill since it does not appear as an available device on the next home.
It is preposterous that Google cannot migrate Nest home properly and forget about the Alexa integration. Google home is not a replacement for Alexa.
Yes this is ridiculous and I didn't realize it when purchasing the devices. Although they look great, the lack of compatibility with Alexa is disappointing. Even though I also have Google Assistant, their routine and IFTTT shortcomings are a big negative.
Contact support and ask them I suppose. Side note: I called support when I received mine as the instructions say you can wire the unit to a doorbell with a resister, and there is a link during install for information, but the link says nothing about what size resister is needed. They tried to say an electrition would "know" what to do but wouldn't they need to know what the design calls for?
