I just received an email notifying me that effective today, users will no longer be able to turn off the status light on their Nest Cameras. It can be dimmed, but not turned off. Also, the light will now blink when live video is being watched. The email says this is for increased transparency. This is ridiculous. I always turn the status light off. I DON'T WANT THE BAD GUYS TO KNOW THE CAMERA IS ON AND IF I AM WATCHING THEM. I'm a 37 year police veteran and I prefer to think of my camera as a surveillance camera for my home, and I do not want to announce to the world they are being recorded or watched. I don't know how to complain to Nest or Google yet, but I thought I would start here. Anyone else think this new update is a bad idea? How can we get Nest to give us the option back? Until this changes, I will be covering the light with a piece of electric tape.
