    Hi.

    Is there a way to make an event to refresh nest cam snapshot every minute or more...?

    Thanks,

    You can do it right down to 6 seconds so yes but it will not delete itself you will need to manage that or set another event or task tondo house cleaning every fees weeks or months

        Event

        Create a new event and set it at a reoccurring event every 1 minute.
        Then
        Nest Device > Choose Camera > Take Snapshot

        Done

        As for house cleaning... inside the html/images/nest folder if memory serves correct it will create a folder called snapshots and keep adding to it and you will need to keep that clean as the plugin cannot do it for you.

            I'm new to this plugin, but loving it...

            On a whim, here's what I did for one of my cameras. It requires setting up Activity Zone(s) within Nest, but I figure it reduces the number of snapshots, while still making changes when necessary (but not too many, hence the 30 second timeout).
