Where to start on how bad this application is. There is no comparison to the Original NEST app. Half the time it does not work. It Captures many things but video is rarely available and when it is, it only records a few seconds. Wish I had never bought Gen 2 cameras. They provide zero security due to all of the issues with the application. Save your money.
