Hey Google Nest Community,

The long-awaited change to Nest Protect’s Wi-Fi configuration is here! With the latest update to the Nest app, you can now change Wi-Fi settings on your 2nd generation Nest Protect directly from the app, without having to uninstall the device. So, Nest Protect will now stay paired to your structure if you reset your password.

How to change Wi-Fi settings: :
  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Home info, 
  3. Select Home Wi-Fi help
  4. Choose the device you want to update 
  5. Tap Start

It’s that easy!

Awesome, the year 2009 has finally arrived at Nest. Way to celebrate mediocrity.

What app? I can't get into the nest app now that I've been migrated to Google. Can't update anything. No nest doorbell nor nest protect. Sort it out Google!

How do you identify 2nd gen Nest Protect. The process of deleting and re-installing each Nest Protect is the most clumsy aspect of using Nest. Think I am on my 4th wi-fi in like 3 years. Annoying for sure! Currently off-line and have to go through that again???
