Remove a product from your account

Remove each product from the app it was first set up on. For example, if you first set up a thermostat with the Google Home app, remove it from the Home app. If you can't remove it from or can't find your product in one app, check the other one.

What to know before you remove a product

Nest Protect

After it's removed from your account, your Nest Protect will still sound an alarm if it detects specified levels of smoke or carbon monoxide. However, some features will be limited:

  • You won't get notifications from the Nest Protect when there's an alarm.

  • You'll no longer be able to view the last reported status of the Nest Protect in the Nest app.

  • You won't be able to change settings.

  • Your Protect will no longer receive software updates.

If you later add your Protect to the app again, you'll first need to perform a factory reset.

Nest cameras and doorbells

Important: Don't unplug your camera until the light ring is pulsing blue after the removal is complete. If you unplug your camera before that, you'll need to reset it to get it working again. To learn more, go to Restart or factory reset Nest camera or doorbell.

  • If you remove a camera from your account, it'll permanently delete all that camera's recorded Video History.

  • You can cancel the Nest Aware subscription for your camera even if you've already removed your camera from your account.

Nest × Yale Lock

After it's removed from your account in the Nest app, your Nest × Yale Lock will still be able to lock and unlock your door, but only using passcodes previously set up with your account. You can also use the thumb turn inside your home.

Important: To change settings on your Nest × Yale Lock after you remove it from your account, complete a factory reset. All your passcodes will be cleared, and you can then create passcodes using the lock's keypad.

Factory reset the Nest × Yale Lock

After it's removed from your account, your Nest × Yale Lock can't:

  • Create or change passcodes with the Nest app

  • Remotely lock and unlock your door with the Nest app

  • View the last reported lock or unlock status

  • Receive notifications, such as low battery, deadbolt extension and retraction issues, and tamper warnings

  • Adjust some settings to enable or disable features, like setting a time to Auto-Lock

Nest thermostats

Make sure to remove your Google Nest thermostat from the Google Home app or factory reset it. You don't have to do these in any particular order.

Google Nest Hub Max

After it's removed from your account, your Nest Hub Max will no longer recognize voice commands, play media, show reminders or calendar events, or use the built-in Nest Cam. All Nest Cam footage in your history will be deleted. Saved clips won't be deleted. In order to use the device, you'll need to set it up again.
