Why do I frequently have turn my Nest Cameras back on?
If you seem to have the need to frequently turn streaming for your Nest Cameras back on, you may have the Home Away/Assist Feature activated. This Feature will automatically toggle your nest cameras On/Off depending if you are home or not.
To configure set your cameras to always stream, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Settings menu in the nest App.
- Select Home/Away Assist.
- Select Either Home or Away and you'll see a list of all your Nest products, including what their current behavior is set to when you are at home or away from home.
- To have the cameras streaming permanently, you can select On in either menu for every device that you want to follow this rule.
- Unless you manually change your status, Nest cameras only use your phone's location to determine if you are currently home or away.
