  • Nest cameras not on
    Bought some battery powered Nest cameras and got them all set up and installed outside. I can watch videos and download snippets on the Google Home app, but it seems like I can't see anything on - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • I had some Nest Outdoor cameras I added years ago. I got some of the nest battery cameras. How do I view them in computer web browser? My office doesn't let me have mobile device due to security reasons.
    Seems like when hell freezes over... Or when they force us old nest users still using nest app and to go to them... - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Is the Nest Cam public url safe?
    First, would recognize this attack and block it long before you could search even a small fraction of the ID space. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Hoobs 4: Account linking not working with NEST and Google Smart Home plug-ins.
    I had seen similar videos and instructions before but I was not copying enough of the access token URL. Make sure you look at the URL in the dev window and work backwards until you reach the first "" and end the copy there. It should follow a "....domain=https....". - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Bind Chrome to GPU1 instead of GPU0
    I would like Chrome to use the GPU in the CPU to HOPEFULLY avoid the crashing. I think its causing the issue but disabling hardware acceleration causes that tab to take up 50-70% CPU time. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Auto home/away on iOS app
    The auto home/away changing (based on location) on the Nest iOS app has just completely stopped working for me recently. It's always been a bit unreliable on iOS but now seems to have given up completely. Does it work any better in the Google Home iOS app? I've been holding off migrating my account to a Google account but would finally cave if I could get home/away working again! - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • in Chrome causing games to crash
    Is there any alternate way to view cameras on Windows other then For some reason having it open in Chrome is causing all my games to crash. Disabling GPU acceleration resolves the issue but that tab then takes up 50%+ cpu time (AMD Ryzen 7 5800H). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • I think Nest forgot to proper scale services for Halloween. There is a 15 minute delay between doorbell and alert.
    Yes, same here, only maybe worse. I just got a notification about an hour late! What's really ... hilarious... Is not only can't I get to, I CAN get to ... And it says everything is dandy, no problems since October 19. UUUUUUUUUgh! - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • What's the best way to view Nest cams on PC/Mac?
    I set it up and it's not on my nest site. I don't think the new Nest cams are compatible with, only Google Home app. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • That's great Nest/Google... You used to be good before you sold out but now it's just one disappointment after another
    That aside, I am also both shocked and not at all surprised that Google ruined the web interface as well. I used to be able to access securely (without tracking enabled/ third party cookies, etc) but not anymore. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • That's great Nest/Google... You used to be good before you sold out but now it's just one disappointment after another
    Can anyone tell me why this is necessary to look at a Nest thermostat/camera on Pretty sure it's just so Google can snarf up more personal data by tracking everything you do in the interface. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Google Home - Nest Thermostats
    I can confirm this worked for me as well. Thanks. I guess they still use the native API even if they hide my devices in the UI. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Nest Hello Doorbell constant stuttering?
    I replaced my Ring Doorbell with the Nest Hello Doorbell for many reasons, (mainly amazon sidewalk and google offering 24/7 streaming) , and the streaming is working great on my computer via the portal. But when doing the live streaming on my Amazon Show, it works for about 30 mins then constant buffering after that. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Advise? Nest Thermostats and Camera's disappeared from Google Home and Nest app has me on a "Home Setup" Loop.
    I had to re-permit in security / 3rd party apps. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
