Change device that records from Camera to Doorbell camera

Community Member

I pay an annual amount to get 10 days recording on my Nest Camera.  I bought a nest Doorbell camera and I want to stop my Nest Cm recording and start recording on my Doorbell camera




You may not be able to do so.

It sounds like you may have a 1st gen Nest Aware subscription, which apply to specific cameras. (The newer Nest Aware and Nest Aware Plus subscriptions apply to all cameras and doorbells in the same Google Nest "home/structure" (

This page says "As of July 13, 2023, Google will no longer sell new subscriptions of 1st gen Nest Aware. Any 1st gen subscriptions that you currently have will continue to renew."

In addition, if you just purchased a Google Nest doorbell, it's probably the 2nd gen doorbell, and the 1st gen Nest Aware subscriptions cannot be used on 2nd gen cameras and doorbells.

That's what I was afraid of ... looks like it's time to switch to Apple
