I’ve installed the Nest Manager 4.0 app and it isn’t working quite right with my nest camera. What I want is for my nest camera to sound an alarm through my SmartThings hub when it detects motion. I played around with IFTTT and got an applet to call my cell phone when the nest cam detects motion. That is working well, although it isn’t realtime and it can take up to a minute to get the phone call after the camera detects motion. I certainly don’t want to wait a minute to sound the siren after the camera detects motion.
Has anyone played around with the Nest Cam API? It seems I can make a call to it once per minute and check to see if the latest event has changed, and that would indicate there has been motion since the last minute I called. I don’t see a way in the API for the Nest Cam to send an outbound call to something when it triggers an event.
