Feature Request - Customize notifications

Community Member

I get so many false positives (spiders, moths, cob webs) the notifications are worthless. What I would like to see is the ability to customize or prioritize notifications.

As it stands now the Nest Camera plays no active role in deterring a criminal, it only allows me to capture the crime after it has happened and share it with the police in hope they will do something. What I would like to see is the following as an example:

If the Nest sees a person between the hours of 11pm and 6am in my drive way then - play a verbal warning from the Nest like "intruder detected", send a prioritized notification to my phone. I normally have my iPhone in Sleep Mode and is there a way to prioritize the notification so I get one for the above scenario during sleep mode.

Thank you
