You should be able to, but you may need to use a third-party tool to make it happen. I do not believe that nest cam is HomeKit compatible. So there's a couple of options that I can see the first is IFT TT. Do a Google search for that and see if you connect Both your garage door opener to the nest cam to the service there may be a recipe to enable that when the garage door opens.

The second option is looking towards homebridge. You can find many references to home bridge in these forums. If you set up a home bridge server and connect the nest Cama plug-in and the Chamberlain LiftMaster plug-in you should be able to then use an app like Eve to connect the two together so that when the garage door opens there's a trigger that sent to the nest cam to turn on. https://github.com/nfarina/homebridge
