Change wifi networks

How do I change wifi networks on the Nest Cam outdoor battery model? I originally set them up at home but now moving to a new location. Thanks.

Google Nest does not make it easy to change Wi-Fi networks, so their first recommendation when changing to a new Wi-Fi router/modem is to set the network name (SSID) and password to the same values used on the old Wi-Fi router/modem.

If you can't do that, then their process calls for removing the Google Nest device from the Google Nest app or Google Home app while still on the old Wi-Fi network, then doing a factory reset, and then re-installing when on the new Wi-Fi network.
