Rotate Nest camera video so it's right side up

If you need to mount your Google Nest camera on a ceiling or overhang, or at an odd angle to get the view you want, you can adjust the video so that it's right side up.

In many cases, you can simply turn or twist the camera. If that’s not possible, you can flip the video 180 degrees with the Home app or Nest app. 

Twist the camera

If you just need to straighten a tilted or upside down image, try twisting your camera in its stand or mount.
