The INSTAR Cloud action lets you watch the live video from your INSTAR IP camera directly on your Google device (only devices with a display are supported). To use this action, it is necessary, that you have an INSTAR Cloud account which you can register at https://cloud.instar.de.
After you login to the INSTAR Cloud system, you need to set up your cameras. The p2p information and the username & password of your cameras are needed. Only once you give permissions to Google, then the INSTAR Cloud action can use these credentials.
How to use the INSTAR Cloud action:
Sync all devices (you added a new camera):
"Hey Google, Sync my devices."
"Hey Google, Sync my cameras."
Play your live videos:
"Hey Google, show [camera name]."
"OK Google, what's on [camera name]?"
"Hey Google, can you play [camera name] on [display name]?"
"Hey Google, play [camera name] on [display name]"
"Hey Google, show [camera name] on [display name]"
Stop your live videos:
"OK Google, stop."
- Make sure that you name your camera in a simple way that Google Home understands, this is the name you set inside the INSTAR Cloud.
- Each camera name should be unique and different from other existing camera names to make sure Google Home knows which camera you mean.
