from nest to google - how to fail to deliver

Community Member

Nest - cameras, thermostat everything is clean in the ios app.  I can view history per second quickly for activity on my cameras.

Google recently sent me a camera to replace a dropcam and not only will it not work in the nest app but the google home app SUCKS!!!!

They bought a name and ruined the ability to provide a basic feature like viewing the history quickly per second for days at a time.  If you try to do the same thing in google home it pauses until you stop swiping.

why do i do that?  because i don’t have time every day to watch every camera and nest/google won’t alert on smaller animals like birds.

literally we have all gone from full footage and storage and quality to clips and good luck finding anything that you don’t have a specific time for…

I may even just by my own dvr and ip cameras
