Commands

GenerateRtspStream

Nest Cam Indoor Nest Hub Max Nest Doorbell (wired) 

Request a token to access an RTSP live stream URL.

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.

GenerateRtspStream request and response

Request

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

  }
}

GenerateRtspStream response fields

Field Description Data Type
streamUrls Map of RTSP live stream URLs. object
streamExtensionToken Token to use to extend the streamToken for an RTSP live stream. string
Example: "CjY5Y3VKaTZwR3o4Y19YbTVfMF..."
streamToken Token to use to access an RTSP live stream. string
Example: "g.0.streamingToken"
expiresAt Time at which both streamExtensionToken and streamToken expire, in RFC 3339 format. string
Example: "2018-01-04T18:30:00.000Z"

ExtendRtspStream

Nest Cam Indoor Nest Hub Max Nest Doorbell (wired) 

Request a new RTSP live stream URL access token to replace a valid RTSP access token before it expires. This is also used to replace a valid RTSP token from a previous ExtendRtspStream command request.

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.

GenerateWebRtcStream request fields

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.

See an example of a valid offer

Field Description Data Type
offerSdp An SDP offer, specific to the local device that will display the WebRTC live stream. string
Example: "offerSdp"

GenerateWebRtcStream response fields

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.

Field Description Data Type
answerSdp An SDP answer to be used with the local device that will display the WebRTC live stream. string
Example: "answerSdp"
expiresAt Time at which access to the WebRTC live stream expires, in RFC 3339 format. string
Example: "2020-01-04T18:30:00.000Z"
mediaSessionId Media session ID of the generated WebRTC live stream. string
Example: "aI3-k1biT9Zju40HZxtHA1Quei..."

ExtendWebRtcStream

Nest Cam (outdoor or indoor, battery) Nest Cam with floodlight Nest Cam (indoor, wired)   Wired   

Request that access to an existing WebRTC live stream be extended before it expires.

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.

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.

Errors

The following error code(s) may be returned in relation to this trait:

Error Message RPC Troubleshooting
Command is not supported for doorbell. FAILED_PRECONDITION A WebRTC stream cannot be extended on battery-powered doorbells. If a stream on a doorbell needs to be viewed beyond the initial session length, stop the existing stream and generate a new one.
Permission denied. PERMISSION_DENIED The user has not granted the developer the appropriate device-level permissions in Partner Connections Manager (PCM) required to execute a command.

When generating a WebRTC live stream, this error can also mean that the audio setting in the offerSdp is incorrect.

See the API Error Code Reference for the full list of API error codes.
