Manage homes and products in the Nest app

Important: If you sign in to the Nest app with a Google Account, use the Home app to manage home members who share access to your Nest products. Keep in mind that only home members who also sign in with a Google Account will be able to find your Nest products in the Nest app.

You can use the Nest app to add more Nest products to your home, and create another home and add products to it. You can also move products to a new home, or between rooms in a home.

Home and product basics

  • You can have multiple homes in the Nest app. For instance, you can add a vacation home as a second home and your business as a third home.
  • The maximum number of homes you can have in the Nest app depends on what account you use to sign in.
    • If you sign in with a Google Account, you can have up to 5 homes in your account. 
    • If you sign in with a Nest account, you can have up to 3 homes.
  • You can be the Owner of one or all homes in the app.
  • You can be invited to access one or all homes in the app. When you accept an invitation from someone to access their Nest home, that home will automatically be added to the app.
  • Don’t assign Nest products to the same home in the app if they’re physically installed in different homes. This can cause problems when your products are trying to sense whether someone’s home or not.
  • If you need access to more than the total number of homes allowed in an account, you can create another account. You can create or accept invitations for each of your accounts in the Nest app.
  • You’ll manage some products in the Nest app, and other products in the Google Home app.
    • Use the Home app to manage home members if you use a Google Account to manage your products and homes.

Create another home in the Nest app

You can add your business, vacation home or other building to the Nest app so you can install and use Nest products in more than one location.

Note: If you sign in to the Nest app with a Google Account, creating a new home in the Nest app will be reflected in the Home app.

  2. Next, at the top right corner, tap Add Plus icon.
  3. Tap Continue.
  4. Give your home a name and then tap Next.

  6. Choose if you want to use your phone’s location to help with Home/Away Assist for your new home.
  7.  If you have a non-migrated account, you’ll be asked if you want to invite other people to share access to your new home. If you don’t, you can always invite them later.

Once you’re done adding your new home to the app, you can add Nest products to it.

Add another Nest product to a home

You can add new Nest products to any home in the app, whether you’re the Owner or you’ve been invited to share access to a home.

  1. At the top left corner of the app home screen, tap Menu Arrow pointing down.
  2. Select the home you want to add the product to.
  3. At the top right corner, tap Settings Nest settings icon.

Move a Nest product to another home

If you have another home, you can move your Nest products between them. When you physically move them to their new home, you’ll also need to move them in the app.

The steps are different for each product. Select the one you want to move below.

Nest thermostat

In Europe:

  1. Make sure that the system in your new home is compatible.
  2. Reset your thermostat to defaults.
  3. Remove your thermostat from the Nest app.
  4. Because Heat Link is connected to high voltage wires, you should contact a local pro to uninstall your thermostat and re-install it in the other home.
  5. Add your Nest thermostat back to the Nest app in the other home. Make sure you select the new home in the app before you re-add your thermostat.

Everywhere else:

  1. Make sure that the system in your new home is compatible.
  2. Reset your thermostat to defaults. It's necessary to reset your thermostat because your thermostat will need to learn about your new home’s system and how quickly the home heats or cools.
  3. Remove your thermostat from the Nest app.
  4. Uninstall your thermostat.
  5. Re-install and set it up in the new home. Make sure you select the new home in the app before you re-add your thermostat.

If you prefer, you can contact a   local pro to re-install your thermostat for you.

Nest cameras, video doorbells, and Dropcams

If your camera doesn’t have a Nest Aware subscription:

  1. Remove your camera from the Nest app.
  2. Uninstall it.
  3. Install it in its new home.
  4. Select the new home in the Nest app.
  5. Set it up in the Nest app.

If your camera has a Nest Aware subscription:

There are a few extra steps you’ll need to take because subscriptions are attached to both your camera and the home you’re in.

  1. Create clips or timelapses of any footage you want to save from your camera.
    Important: The next step will delete your camera’s video history and settings, so you must do this beforehand to preserve any memories you want to keep.
  2. If your camera has a 1st gen Nest Aware subscription, cancel the subscription. This step will delete your camera’s video history and settings.
  3. Remove the camera from the Nest app and uninstall it.
  4. Install your camera in its new home.
  5. Set up your camera again with the Nest app. Make sure you select the camera’s new home in the app before you begin setup.
  6. If needed, purchase a Nest Aware subscription.
    • To purchase a 1st gen Nest Aware subscription for a camera on a non-migrated Nest account, go to the Nest Store. Otherwise, purchase a Nest Aware subscription in the GStore.

Important: If you purchased a pre-owned Nest camera and receive a message that says it's already in use by another account, contact the previous owner and ask them to remove the camera from their account.
