Mounting Magnets

Community Member

We have 2 Outdoor and @ Indoor Nest cams. In our current house we've been using them all inside for a new puppy. We're now moving to a house and want to mount the outdoor cams outside (likely purchasing mounting hardware). When viewing mounting hardware online, they all require the original mounting magnet that came with the outdoor cams. We are unable to mount them outside at all without the original magnets, even when purchasing other hardware. 

After searching high and low it appears you cannot purchase the magnets unless you get a whole new camera with the magnet included. We have two perfectly good outdoor cams at a value of almost $500 when they were new.

Is there anyway to get two of the original mounting magnets without starting completely over? 

Thank you!

I do not believe you ate able to purchase them directly through the Google Store.  You'd have to check third party dealers or sites.
