Google Nest hub max camera

Community Member


I am having the same issue as others but have not been able to resolve with other suggestions.  My Google hub Max camera used to work and now shows as offline.  I have tried the various options and still not having success.  Here are the facts/what I’ve tried.   The camera worked great for a year+ following setup.  No issues until it just went offline one day.  We have a nest doorbell cam as well as several singular nest cams. 

Unsuccessful attempts:

1. Re-boot hub while press/hold volume switch 

2. completely remove hub from setup, factory reset, and re-add back in

3. toggle every switch on/off on hub

4. attempts from Google Home app - toggle all switches -  note, the home monitoring toggle switches back to off and won’t stay in on position 

5. attempts from Nest app - remove hub and re-add back in

Any other advice/attempts?
