How can Google Hub Max receive notifications from Nest Camera with Floodlights

Community Member

Hi, successfully set up Google Hub Max on new Wi-Fi home network.

Also successfully set up Nest Camera with Floodlights.

Receiving Nest Camera notifications on phone perfectly.

Can successfully turn on camera and view manually from Google Hub Max.

NOT receiving any notifications on Google Home Hub when Nest Camera is activated by sensor etc which is what I hoped it would do!

Is this possible? I’m assuming it must be able to. Please help!

Am reasonably savvy with tech but can’t seem to find the toggle switch to allow this to happen.

Thanks 🙏 




We've been Google Nest customers for almost 4 years, but the only notifications sent to our Nest Hubs, Nest Minis, or Nest speakers from cameras or doorbells are "Visitor announcements" ( when the button is pressed on one of our Google Nest Hello Doorbells. There is no option to send camera notifications.

Customers in this forum have been asking about this non-existent feature since at least September 2021:
