Have I accidentally deleted my Nest Cam from Google Home?

Community Member


Last Monday, I was  in a hurry to leave my house. We got three Nest Cams (Indoor, 2nd Gen). I shared  it with one other person in my home. But, for this day, I wanted to switch off the video for two of the Nest Cams. That was easy. So, I switched the video off. 


Then, I wanted to... on temporary basis... remove access to the one other person with whom I shared the Nest Cam streams.  I never did this before. So, I wanted to do the opposite of  uninviting a person to Google Home. And I don't know what I did, 

Immediately, I lost the streams on all 3 cameras. 

And, the footage from the past 60 days had disappeared  too. 

What did I do? Is there a way to recover the footage of the 3 Nest Cams from the last 60 days?  

I was stressed about it as these cameras  contain some important footage that we need to study. 


I would be grateful for any guidance in recovering the stream.   I really hope you are not going to say that "all is lost, and you just have to reinstall the 3 cams." 














It sounds like you may have removed yourself from your Google Nest "home/structure":

Apparently, the one other person with whom you've shared your "home" still has access. Perhaps they will need to invite you back into your "home".

There seems to be no clear documentation on what else to do. You could try contacting Support:
