[Update] Visual Indicators on Nest Cam, Dropcam and Nest Hello 0 Recommended Answers 937 Replies 442 Upvotes
Hello Google Nest Community,
As part of our commitment to privacy, we explained that you would always see a clear visual indicator when your Nest cameras are on and sending video and audio to Google. Starting today, we’re rolling out the following changes that no longer allow you to turn off the visual indicators on Nest Cam, Dropcam and Nest Hello:
- In Settings for all Nest Cameras and Nest Hello, now you can dim the light status. When the camera is on, the status light will glow green, the light’s low enough to still be used in any room, even for Nest Cam IQs used in a nursery.
- For Dropcam, when the camera is on, the status light will glow blue.
- On Nest Cam, Dropcam, and Nest Hello, the status light will blink when the camera is live video is streamed from the Nest app.
We’re also changing how your cameras react when a Nest Secure alarm or Nest Protect detects smoke or carbon monoxide. Starting today, you will need to select each of your cameras to start recording during a smoke, carbon monoxide, or security event, even if this feature was previously enabled.
These changes reflect our commitment to respecting the privacy of you and the people in your home.
Let us know if you have any questions,
Chelsea and the Google Nest Community
