Camera (legacy)

Nest Cam

All legacy Nest Cams are supported in the Smart Device Management (SDM) API:

  1. Google Nest Cam Indoor
  2. Google Nest Cam Outdoor
  3. Google Nest Cam IQ Indoor
  4. Google Nest Cam IQ Outdoor

These devices return a device type of CAMERA:

sdm.devices.types.CAMERA

The Google Nest Doorbell (legacy) and Google Nest Hub Max also function as cameras and feature similar traits, though they return device types of DOORBELL and DISPLAY, respectively.

Google Nest Cam Indoor and Google Nest Cam Outdoor can be used in either the Nest app or the Google Home app but not both at the same time. When the camera is on the Nest app it supports RTSP. And when the camera is on the Google Home app it supports WebRTC. The supportedProtocols field of the CameraLiveStream trait shows which format is supported. See the Migrate devices to the Google Home app support article for additional explanation.

See the Doorbell and Display device guides for more information on features unique to those device types.

Handle camera events

The following events may be triggered from a CAMERA device type or a DOORBELL or DISPLAY that features a camera, such as the Google Nest Doorbell (legacy) or Google Nest Hub Max :

Type Element Description
Event Motion event of the CameraMotion trait Motion has been detected by the camera.
Event Person event of the CameraPerson trait A person has been detected by the camera.
Event Sound event of the CameraSound trait Sound has been detected by the camera.
For example, here the camera has detected motion:

Payload

{
  "eventId" : "8374faf7-7dc7-4005-a7ee-b2fa14c8d4e6",
"timestamp" : "2019-01-01T00:00:01Z",
"resourceUpdate" : { "name" : "enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id", "events" : { "sdm.devices.events.CameraMotion.Motion" : { "eventSessionId" : "CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF...", "eventId" : "czEvp3YLXkICVjNUyvjaVB29Gy...", } } } "userId" : "AVPHwEuBfnPOnTqzVFT4IONX2Qqhu9EJ4ubO-bNnQ-yi",
"resourceGroup" : [ "enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id" ] }
The payload of this event contains an eventId that can be used with the GenerateImage command. This command returns a download URL for the camera image related to the event:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraEventImage.GenerateImage",
  "params" : {
    "eventId" : "XZAsN6iP0OrkCqgIRFBmGP4quD..."
  }
}

Response

{
  "results" : {
    "url" : "https://domain/sdm_event_snapshot/dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...",
    "token" : "g.0.eventToken"
  }
}

Download a camera image

Make a GET call to the url from a GenerateImage command response, using the token in the HTTP Authorization header with Basic authorization, to download the camera image:

curl -H "Authorization: Basic g.0.eventToken" \
      https://domain/sdm_event_snapshot/dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...

Use width or height query parameters to customize the resolution of the downloaded image. Only one of these parameters need to specified. The other parameter is scaled automatically according to the camera's aspect ratio.

For example, if the camera's aspect ratio is 4:3, to download the camera image with a resolution of 480 x 360 specify either the width or the height:

Width

curl -H "Authorization: Basic g.0.eventToken" \
      https://domain/sdm_event_snapshot/dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...?width=480

Height

curl -H "Authorization: Basic g.0.eventToken" \
      https://domain/sdm_event_snapshot/dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...?height=360

Other restrictions to the download URL apply:

  • If both parameters are provided in the URL, width is used and height is ignored.
  • If neither parameter is provided in the URL, a default value of 480 is chosen for the width.

See the CameraImage trait for information on image properties.

Access a live stream

The live stream from a camera can be accessed. The following stream formats are supported for this device:

  • RTSP
  • WebRTC

For a full list of cameras and supported stream formats, see Supported Devices.

To access a live stream, use the appropriate GenerateFormatStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait.

WebRTC


For a WebRTC stream, send an offerSdp in the GenerateWebRtcStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait to get an answerSdp:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.GenerateWebRtcStream",
  "params" : {
    "offerSdp" : "offerSdp"
  }
}

Response

{
  "results" : {
    "answerSdp" : "answerSdp",
    "expiresAt" : "2020-01-04T18:30:00.000Z",
    "mediaSessionId" : "4oWOsx8yr3_ppEVJvsp895i-qj..."
  }
}

We recommend using the Web Application Sample to learn how to generate a successful live stream. This sample generates a valid offerSdp that meets all the SDP offer restrictions for Nest cameras.

An SDP offer for Nest cameras must meet the following restrictions:

  • Only the Unified format is supported. Plan B is not supported.
  • All media lines (m=) must be present in the offer and must be in this order:
    1. audio
    2. video
    3. application
  • Trickle ICE is supported, but not required.
  • Only the Opus codec is supported for audio.
  • The audio setting must be set to a=recvonly (receive only).
  • The offer must end with a newline character of either \r\n or \n.

The answerSdp must be used to generate the live stream within 30 seconds of receiving the response, otherwise it expires. If it expires, execute the GenerateWebRtcStream command again to receive a new answerSdp.

When opening WebRTC channels for the live stream, make sure to create a data channel as well as a video channel.

RTSP

For an RTSP stream, the GenerateRtspStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait command returns the stream URL and related streamToken:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.GenerateRtspStream",
  "params" : {}
}

Response

{
  "results" : {
    "streamUrls" : {
      "rtspUrl" : "rtsps://someurl.com/CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF...?auth=g.0.streamingToken"
    },
    "streamExtensionToken" : "CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF...",
    "streamToken" : "g.0.streamingToken",
    "expiresAt" : "2018-01-04T18:30:00.000Z"
  }
}

Then use the stream URL to access the camera live stream:

rtsps://someurl.com/CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF...?auth=g.0.streamingToken

RTSP live stream URLs cannot be shared between clients. A stream URL can only be used by one client at a time. If multiple clients want to stream from the same camera at the same time, RTSP commands must be sent for each individual client, and each individual client must use its own stream URL.

Extend a live stream

Camera live stream sessions are only valid for 5 minutes. If you need to extend the lifetime of a live stream, use the appropriate ExtendFormatStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait for the stream format you generated.

WebRTC


  Wired   

A WebRTC stream can only be extended on wire-powered cameras. A battery-powered camera is considered wire-powered while plugged in for charging. If the camera is on battery power, a request to extend an active WebRTC stream will be ignored.

To extend a WebRTC stream, specify the media session ID of the stream with the ExtendWebRtcStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.ExtendWebRtcStream",
  "params" : {
    "mediaSessionId" : "4oWOsx8yr3_ppEVJvsp895i-qj..."
  }
}

Response

{
  "results" : {
    "expiresAt" : "2018-01-04T18:30:00.000Z",
    "mediaSessionId" : "4oWOsx8yr3_ppEVJvsp895i-qj..."
  }
}

RTSP

To extend an RTSP stream, use the ExtendRtspStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait command to get new streamExtensionToken and streamToken values:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.ExtendRtspStream",
  "params" : {
    "streamExtensionToken" : "CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF..."
  }
}

Response

{
  "results" : {
    "streamExtensionToken" : "dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...",
    "streamToken" : "g.0.newStreamingToken",
    "expiresAt" : "2018-01-04T18:30:00.000Z"
  }
}

Update the stream URL with these new values to continue viewing the live stream:

rtsps://someurl.com/dGNUlTU2CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y1...?auth=g.0.newStreamingToken

Stop a live stream

Any time you are no longer using a camera live stream, you should stop it and invalidate the stream. To do so, use the appropriate StopFormatStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait for the stream format you generated.

WebRTC


To stop a WebRTC stream, specify the media session ID with the StopWebRtcStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.StopWebRtcStream",
  "params" : {
    "mediaSessionId" : "4oWOsx8yr3_ppEVJvsp895i-qj..."
  }
}

Response

{}

RTSP

To stop an RTSP stream, use the token to invalidate with the StopRtspStream command of the CameraLiveStream trait command:

Request

POST /enterprises/project-id/devices/device-id:executeCommand
{
  "command" : "sdm.devices.commands.CameraLiveStream.StopRtspStream",
  "params" : {
    "streamExtensionToken" : "CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF..."
  }
}

Response

{}
