I have had my camera for about 3 months. All of a sudden my app said it was offline.(my other 3 cameras were working fine) I could not access it through my app so I tried removing it from my app and then re adding it. During the set up process after I scan the QRS code and my phone tries to connect with the camera but it never recognizes it. I tried to restart the camera but it doesn’t work. While I am holding in on the reset button the light stays white, eventually it goes back to green then the light turns off. I never see the blinking light and I never hear a tone. What should I do?? Please help.

I have the same problem. These cameras are a pain to work with.

I deleted the cameras from my Home group and the Reset the camera. Now the Google Nest App fails in the middle of trying to add the camera back into my home network. The App starts looking for that cameras and the dumb square, triangle & circle just crashes to the bottom of the App screen and kicks me back to the "What are you setting up?" screen. You have no idea how many hours I have spent trying to get these cameras back on line!!

Thanks for getting back to us and I'm sorry to hear if it didn't go well. To confirm, what is the light status of your Nest camera during setup? Have you checked the link I shared on how to reset the Nest camera to the factory default?
Keep us posted.

I finally got the setup to complete is operation. It kept failing half way through but eventually caught and completed. A security camera should not be this difficult.

Is the reset button the small button on the back of the camera?
11-15-2022 01:52 PM
Thanks for getting back to us. Yes that is right, for Nest camera (battery) the reset button is located at the back. You may hit the link I shared above for the steps. Let me know how it goes.

Hello, I tired resetting my camera but it still won’t connect to my app. Do you have any other suggestions?
11-21-2022 06:01 PM
Thanks for trying. No worries, we’ll sort this out — a few questions: what’s the status light of your camera? How far is the camera from the router? What WiFi frequency band do you try to connect to (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz)? Were there any changes to your Wi-Fi network? Also, how far have you gotten in pairing your camera?
Going over the steps here might help:
Let me know how it goes.
I appreciate your help, Emerson.

I have tried most of the suggestions in the previous message but it is still not working. The only thing I have not tried is using another mobile phone. I will try my husband’s phone this weekend. Hopefully that will work.

How was it? Are there any changes on its behavior?
11-29-2022 05:50 AM
so far it still won’t work. I’m going to try using my husband’s phone to see if it will work with another device.

Hello, I just tried connecting the camera with my husband’s Samsung phone and it would not work. Is there anything else I can try? I purchased the camera through the Google store could I exchange it?
