Just picked up this camera for a Google Nest/Assist set up and whilst the camera on its own is pretty decent, the integration with Google is simply non existent and I feel completely ripped off. Especially when it promotes Google Assistant integration.
My primary need is to be able to turn on and off my camera using google assist. The use-case being I don’t want to record/view whilst home and certainly not whilst guests are over. I would have thought this is one of the more basic functions. Ideally, I would have liked to set up a simple routine that shuts down my indoor cameras when I’m home.
I would have also like to view cam streams through the Google Home app (via phone) but alas, not even close.
I’m pretty devastated that in 2022 this still isn’t possible and I just backed another eufy cam product on Kickstarter (the doorbell/lock one) and completely regret my purchase and will try to get my money back. Suffice to say, I won’t be decking out the house with Eufy security cams as initially planned and will switch to nest cams for the peace of mind of knowing the eco system will simply work.
In terms of my issues - they’re echoing a lot of the above comments. If I ask google to turn my eufy camera on, it tells me it’s already on when it isn’t. If I ask to turn it off, it asks for a PIN and then tells me it can’t do that right now. I have installed and removed many times, via assistant and home separately.
