  • Nest Cam

    I'm assuming the answer is simply "NO" since this is obviously not stated. Also because (from my research) it appears that Nest is doing everything possible to keep you from using your cam data locally (so that you pay for the Nest Aware service). But I'll ask anyway:

    Is (or will) the Nest Cam supported on Homeseer with this (or any other?) plugin?

    Thanks!

    currently the plugin does not support Nest Cam, however the Nest API allow to do a (limited) number of things with Nest Cam:

    • View camera online status or mic status
    • View or change streaming status (turn camera streaming on/off)
    • View device name and where identifier
    • View last online status change (last online/offline change)
    • View subscription status (enrolled/not enrolled)
      Learn more about Nest Aware with Video History subscriptions >
    • View deep links to the live camera feed in the Nest app (iOS, Android) or on the web at home.nest.com
    • View content related to the last event that triggered a notification, including:
      • Sound or motion event detected
      • Event start/stop times
      • Deep links to image and gif files

    • Structure name and camera "where name" (location in the home)

    https://developer.nest.com/documenta...d/camera-guide

    so I can add some of that to the plugin if there is some demand for it (you are the first one asking about that)

    one thing I am wondering is if the live feed link at home.nest.com can be used as a regular webcam streaming url (in HSTouch for example) ?

      Wow, I'm glad to be the first to ask

      I don't have a Homeseer (yet) or any Nest devices (yet).

      But I'm seriously thinking of both. And probably multiple of these Nest cams (the wife likes them, so that trumps some other cams with more nerd functionality) So, I was just wondering.

      I think the Holy grail of a single app for accessing all home automation devices from different providers (for those who do "a lot" of HA) is unlikely, but I was wondering how much of these two can be brought together for simplicity sake.

      I'm not sure what is meant by "deep image".. What I was wondering, however, was being able to use the triggering event from sound or motion detection to trigger other events within Homeseer. Also, of course, viewing the live feed in HSTouch. Lastly, but this I highly doubt this is possible, is being able to copy/store those video streams (outside of a Nest Aware acount)

      I wish I had this set up now so we could test it for you

          These features would be a great addition to the plugin. I thought this was not possible at all.

          Thanks!

              I'm currently working on Nest Cam integration. I would need a user who owns a Nest Cam to help me test. Please contact me at spud.webb.4@gmail.com or private message if you want to help. Thanks

                So, I have implemented some specific Nest triggers that allow to trigger Homeseer events when a Nest cam detects sound and/or motion. It looks like they work quite well
                Click image for larger version

                I have also added some devices to track and control the camera streaming, but I'm having trouble to test the controls, so I would still need someone with a real Nest Cam to help me test before I can release this version.

                Anyone?
                Thanks

                      Just set up an event that triggers on a person event on my Nest Hello. Will see how it does.

                        Unfortunately Nest doesn't make it easy to integrate the cams because they do not provide access to the direct stream.

                          Nest allows you to share your stream. I pull my camera feed into blue Iris this way. If you share it and choose "anyone that has the link" (something like that) then you can use that URL for the feed in HSTouch

                              Ok, so i have the Share URL, im not sure what or how i put that into HSTOUCH, i tried is an image element,but that didnt work..


                              Ok so i figured out you can paste the URL in as text in a text box..
                              this works HOWEVER, i need to be able to embed html code, as i need to have it go 'full screen'
                              <iframe allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen src="<WEBLINK>" frameborder="0" width="720" height="576"></iframe>
                              how can i do this?! please

                              **UPDATE**
                              ok found out how to add an embedded web element into a test element by telling it its HTML..
                              so i have it all setup but for some reason when i publish the link to my device i get no video shown
                              just a blank box, However if i paste the html into a text document and open in A browser it runs perfect..
                              any thoughts?
                              SOO CLOSE!
                              I did for testing Try and open the link on my client using a browser and it worked just fine...
