Trying to setup nest cam again, says it needs to be removed from account but I already did it?

Community Member

I had a nest cam wired and it was working fine, but I needed to move it to a new house so I removed it from the house I had in google home and created a new one. Then, when I tried to set it up on the new home it says that the nest cam is already setup and needs to be removed from the previous account, even though I already did that. What do I do now?

Hi there, 


I apologize for my late response and thank you for all of your patience while waiting for a reply. I can definitely understand how frustrating your situation must be, but I wanted to make sure that your issue was addressed. Do you still need help with this issue?

I have managed to reset the camera but am now unable to add it to my existing home. Whenever I try to add the camera it says searching for assisting nest device and stays on that screen for hours until I give up.


For now I have set up two homes but it is annoying to have to swap between two homes to see different cameras. Do you have any guidance for this?
