Nest cameras and multiple wifi networks

I have a large property with multiple wifi networks. I want to set up a camera on a building at a second location on my property. How do I get the camera to connect to the wifi network available at that location? When I set up the camera, it doesn’t let me choose the network. Does it use the network that my phone is connected to during setup? I am using the Home app.

If won't work by default if the Wi-Fi network name and password are different. You'll either need to make them the same as the first location, or create a separate "home" in the app to put the second camera in. It will then prompt you to select a Wi-Fi network.
