Google Nest cam


I have tried to integrate a Nest camera, but there is no data and no video.

When you connect the account to Homey, you agree that Homey both can see videoes and photo.

How can you agree to this if it doesn’t work?




Thank you for the reply.

I didn’t quite get the last sentence from you.

But this product (Athom Homey Pro) was ordered 3 weeks ago. So I guess this is the newest version.

Is there any bugs with the new version?

Hi, it’s a preview of a post

The point is, the more info you provide, the bigger the chance anyone will try to help, and the better anyone can help.

So okay, you have a Homey Pro.

  1. Which app do you use? (There’s 2 nest apps)

What steps did you do/try?
Why do you expect video? Homey can’t stream video.

You’ll have to agree to what? Screenshot please…

What do you mean with “it doesn’t work”.
My car doesn’t work if the battery is dead/empty fueltank/wrong key/no wheels etc etc.

I hope you can explain what you tried, f.i. with flow examples, what you expect and what does not respond.

Aha okay

The app is called nest. Blue logo with a house inside.

If Homey cant present whats om the camera, why does it need allowance from me through Google to do it?
Why is there a nest app for cameras if Homey cant show it?

So do you know these cameras and have you installed them in Homey?

Didn’t know about a third Nest app.

This is a way to use cam images:

Thank you for the info.

How come I can’t download this app?


Use Firefox browser in Incognito mode;
Install the HCS app on Homey by using a laptop/pc.
When Homey Community Store is up and running:

Then search for ‘nest sdm’ at the HCS site.
When the install button is greyed out: make sure to enable desktop mode when on a cellphone/tablet browser;
Hit the green thing and logon.

Then the install button should’ve turned green and active.


Thank you.

Why do I have to do this:
Use Firefox browser in Incognito mode;


It’s to be sure no cached data or cookies are possibly getting in the way.
It has nothing to do with ‘incognito’ itself, but it provides for a fresh clean browser :wink:

Alternatively, you can empty your browsers cache and cookies and use the standard mode. You’ll lose your saved logins and prefs.


Is this the correct app?


It is.
But Athom recently built a Nest app too, it lacks Nest Protect support though.

Have you seen this before?
Like Google is charging extra for the Nest cams to be integrated in smart homes?

The app you linked. I have tried it, It will find the camera but nothing to do with it.
It’s very strange.

Search for Google SDM :wink:
It’s a one time $5

Dutch howto:

Thank you :slight_smile:

So this is what I need to do:

To get started with Device Access, you need to complete the following tasks:

  1. Register for the Device Access program.
  2. Activate a supported Nest device with a Google account.
  3. Create a GCP project to enable the SDM API and get an OAuth 2.0 client ID.
  4. Create a Device Access project to receive a Project ID.
