Nest Camera Offline

Hi all,

I have recently bought a NEST doorbell camera. It's set up near my router however when someone comes to the door it takes a while (about 2 minutes) to alert me and this obviously can result in the person leaving by the time I get the alert.

Any advice on to make it instant?

There will always be some delay. There is delay in the signal getting thru your router, out into the internet and to the nest server. Then there is delay when nest sends your phone the information.

nest moves the signals pretty fast so that leaves your ISP.
Who do you have for service ?

You could also try a wifi extender closer to the door. I had to use a few extenders since my stucco blocks the signal from my ring cameras.
