Google Battery Nest Cam

Community Member

Just installed the Cam to my outdoor patio and it shows its up and running only in Google Home and Not on Nest app? I have tried everything including setting it up multiple times. I have my other three cams and thermostats all working perfectly, why the heck cant this show on the app? is there a solution??

Please help… Thanks!!

Hi Joe, I'm an end user like you. Sadly, Google Nest decided all the gen 2 cameras released in Sept of 2021 do not work with the NEST app (despite the fact that they have NEST in the name) and only work in the Google Home app.

Also, the new line does not work from the older your web browser Google is in the process of replacing that website with which at the moment has limited functionality.

If all of your cameras are in the same Google Nest "home/structure" and you use the same Google Account to log into both apps, your Nest Aware subscription will cover all of them.

This is extremely disappointing as my Nest app alerts me and is so easy to use. I wish I had know this prior but now i will deal with it… Hope they figure this out and make the google app more like the nest app (thousand times nicer)!

Thanks fore the quick reply

Many Many people were caught off guard by this. You can read back thru this forum and see. But hopefully the folks at Google Nest will move fast at moving the Nest app functions over to the Google Home app.
