Nest has made some changes to the status light on its Nest Cameras, previously you had the option to turn the status light off.
This has now changed, it can no longer be turned off, instead it can be dimmed, but it is still on, Google did mention previously that this change would be coming to its cameras.
Many users are now complaining about the change and are less than happy with this new feature, which Google says is for privacy reasons. One user, MKNYC81, posted their thoughts on Google’s website, you can see this below.
As a Nest Camera user Myself I tend to agree with the majority of other owners about the changes, not having the ability to use a feature that was there and highlighted when the devices were purchased is annoying.
It will be interesting to see of Google devices to change this back after the backlash or whether it will continue with this new feature, we suspect it will be the latter.
