DEMO

How to Set Up and Use a Nest Cam Security Camera




Tom gave a step-by-step demo to the happy group shown above on how to set up a Nest Indoor cam which had previously been connected to his Nest wifi network at home and followed these steps to change the wifi settings:

1. In the new location (library), go online to your Nest Home account.
2. Log into your current Nest account.
3. Click on Home > Settings > Home info > Wifi help > cam name > Update Cam's Wifi > Start
4. Follow directions to complete update of WiFi.

Your installed Nest Cam can easily be turned on and off via your cell phone, iPad, or Laptop from any location in the world. Also instant alerts are sent via push notifications and emails whenever activity is spotted by the cam. Two way sound can be activated for instant communication via your Nest Cam and iPhone, iPad or computer from a distant location. A free 30-day trial subscription of Nest Aware starts when you install your Nest camera into a new account. After that expires, you can select a Nest Aware subscription at the level you need, or just use the camera with alerts and single picture capture for free. An accessory outdoor cam mount is available for $15 from Amazon.
