I'm working on an issue that Nest support has been less than helpful about. I've posted to their user forums for additional community help but I saw a few tumbleweeds for responses to most inquiries. I thought someone here has had some experience with them and could help.
I stupidly helped install Unifi access points at a clients house (owner of one of the business we do work for). About a month later they had their home automation people come in and, without any consultation with me, installed 13 nest cameras and a couple nest doorbells. Possibly more actually.
The client complains that it can sometimes take time to bring up the cameras and one time a guest was standing at the door for 5 minutes until the ring finally came through.
Their ISP is a wireless provider and they tend to get around 44.3 Mbps down and 3.2 Mbps up.
According to this article: https://nest.com/support/article/How-mu ... ello-video
the doorbell should take up a little over a third of the upload, but I'm not sure if that means only when viewing the single camera on the phone or all the time. So theoretically, if I had 3 doorbells would I exceed the upload. Anyone have any experience with sizing nest deployments to ISP upload or any real world experience with responsiveness of the devices?
Nest support also steered me away from the typical speed test sites and told me the speedof.me was accurate. Regular speed test sites put the upload/download to be equal at around 50 Mbps, a huge difference!
