I’m looking for someone with experience of these. I am about to install a number of nest cameras and nest doorbell in my home. I use a google account for work and email but is it worth setting up a new dedicated account solely for these devices? My wife will also need access to their feeds via her phone so it seems to make the most sense that we can both log in to a dedicated account as needed. Will there be any downsides to running them this way?

i wouldn't use a work account but I do use my personal account. Part of the appeal of these is personalization. My wife also uses them and she has a separate email account. She's able to get personalized results through voice recognition, casting, etc. It's not a big deal.
