    The new Nest aware sucks if you only have the Nest hello. They really want you to get multiple cameras to make 24/7 recording worth it. I'm still on the grandfathered old plan with mine, but if my current hello dies, I don't think I'm replacing it with another hello as I wouldn't be grandfathered anymore. It seems like the plan is attached to the device.
    I have 5 cams and the new plan saves me $17 a month over the old plan so to me itís pretty awesome. But yes, you need at least 3 cams to make it worth while.

    At least they came out with a new thermostat so they are still coming out with something new. Will the cameras ever be refreshed, who knows. The nest indoor is currently 5+ years old.

    New thermostat is only $179 which is much nicer then the 3rd gen pricing

    I just want to know why they discontinued Wear OS support. I know it's their most neglected platform but it was working just fine.
    Same reason they discontinued their Nest Apple TV App support. For no fucking good reason at all.

    Google gonna google.

    At some point I'm going to regret the 10 cameras in my house haha.

    Anyone having issues with their nest hello not sending push notifications? I tested both people and doorbell and nothing sent to iPhone. The events are captured just fine in the app.

    Nothing sent to my wife’s phone either so I’m wondering if it’s something on Google’s end? The only thing I did recently was change the chime to a Halloween theme so gonna change it back and test again when I get home shortly. Would be a really stupid bug if that’s what fucked it up.

    Speaking of Nest, anyone switched their ecosystem to Alexa/Amazon? I'm getting annoyed at the google services, having to yell at my google homes for them to recognize voice, having to reconnect my devices back to google over and over again

    Mighty words from a system that only gets email notifications like it’s 1999.

    I would expect server issues from a company like Wyze or something but not Google. Its also why I paid for what I thought was a premium doorbell cam vs a lot of cheaper options. You’d think they would know how to scale up on busy days like Halloween especially since this apparently happens every year. I didn’t get a flood of notifications even after signing in and out on the app yet so I’m not sure they are even queued up somewhere either.

    I’m gonna try contacting their support and see what they say.

    I don’t expect a lot of google these days, especially with Nest who’s been treated like a forgotten department ever since the acquisition. I’m sure one day I’ll regret jumping all in to Nest, but for now it’s the best solution in terms of overall usability even with its flaws. The Halloween issue really only lasts 5 hrs a year. Excusing them like it’s nothing shows how poor other camera platforms are today.

    Well shit, this ended up being an iOS issue and not google

    Forgot I upgraded to iOS 14.1 the other day and did a quick Google and found other people having issues with notifications after upgrading. The weird thing is that I was getting all other notifications except Nest so I didn’t think it was an OS problem

    All it took was a simple reboot of the phone and they started working again. I’m an idiot for not trying that in the first place, but will get in the habit of rebooting phone after every upgrade going forward.

    Has anyone used a Nest Pro Installer or have any recommendations for one?

    A couple of years ago, when I had my A/C installed they offered to hook the humidifier up to the Nest instead of the humidistat. Great! But it's not hooked up correctly. The Nest works great for heat except the thermostat is calling for the humidifier to run when the furnaces are off, no heat and no fan, basically all the time. This causes a constant flow of water through the humidifiers and wastes a lot of water, I have to go in to the app and manually turn the humidifier on and off. I need to set the thermostats to turn on the humidifier's water supply only when the thermostats are calling for heat, but I can't do this without a Pro ID.
