Nest Manager 4.0 and Nest Cam

Hello guys,

I have a question about Nest Manager 4.0. I installed it and my Nest Protect are working. Great! Now I also want to see my cam.

Well, it load and looks ok. But the stream does not start. I can take Snapshots, but the stream is just not connecting. I even get a message “Camera cannot be found. We are trying to connect” But I can take a Snapshot?

Ive tested 2 nest settings 1: public with password and 1: private. The cam is in the baby room, so public streaming is not an option.

Who can help me? What stupid thing Im I missing?

I think you have to make it public for it to work so I dont think it will fit your scenario. I have mine on my front door together with a ring pro so I dont mind enabling public sharing.
I dont know how you feel about the Nest app but I use it more often that the Nest Manager app for camera viewing. I only use the nest manager for automating my thermostat and protects.

You need to share it publicly without the password.

You can find the info on the Nest Manager wiki page

Ok, so Im going to sell my Nest Cam :wink: Thanks for that advice.

What cam for an babyroom is save (not public streaming) and works well with SmartThings?
