How to Setup and Install Nest Cam Indoor


SPEAKER 1: Welcome to Nest. We are going to show you
how to setup and install your indoor Nest camera. There are a few simple steps. Set it up with the Nest app. Find a good location. Then test the video stream. Mount it if you want. Everything you need to get
started is included in the box. The contents are a little
different for each camera. Indoor Nest cameras are
designed to be freestanding. But if you want to mount
it on the wall or ceiling, you’ll also need
some simple tools– a Phillips screwdriver or power
drill with a Phillips bit. For harder surfaces
like brick or stone, you’ll need a masonry
bit and wall anchors. For setup with the
Nest app, you’ll need a compatible
phone or tablet. Be sure to have your
Wi-Fi password handy, too. Go to nest.com/requirements
for more information. To stream video, you
should have a Wi-Fi network with a broadband
internet connection with at least 2 megabits of
upload speed for each Nest camera in your home. Don’t install your
camera just yet. We’ll start by plugging
it in and setting it up with the Nest app. Plug the power cable
into your Nest camera. Then connect the power
adapter to the cable. Then plug your
camera into an outlet that’s close to where
you want to place it. Your camera will start up. [CAMERA CHIMES] And its light will turn on. Now you’ll use the app
to connect your Nest camera to Wi-Fi. If you’re new to Nest, go to the
Apple App Store or Google Play to download the Nest app. Launch the app to
create an account. Once you’re signed
into your account, tap the plus sign to
connect your camera. If you’re already using the
Nest app, tap the Settings icon. Then select Add Product. The app will then guide you
through a few simple steps. First, you’ll scan
the camera’s QR code. This will let the app know
which camera you’re setting up. If you’re having trouble
scanning the code, make sure you have good
lighting and that you’re not casting a shadow. Start with your
phone about a foot away, and move it slowly
closer to the code. It doesn’t need to fill
the box in the app to scan. Next you’ll give your
camera a location name. The app will use this
when it sends you notifications from
your camera, so pick one that
makes sense to you. Now you’ll connect
your camera to Wi-Fi. Select your Wi-Fi network
and enter your password. If you already have a
Nest product in your home, your camera may try to use
it to connect to the network. If your camera has
trouble connecting, you may need to move it closer
to your router or the assisting Nest product. The app will let
you know what to do. If you see an error message
or need more help connecting your camera, visit
nest.com/pair. Now that your camera
is connected to Wi-Fi, place it where you want. You may already have
a good idea of where you want to put your camera
and how you want to install it, but here are some
things to consider. Indoor Nest cameras
have wide-angle views, so they can look
over a large area. So for instance, you might be
able to place your camera so it can see who comes
in your front door as well as what happens
in your living room. Ideally, you should
place your camera so you can clearly
see someone’s face as they walk in front of it. You can also focus on a specific
area within your camera’s view. Once you’ve placed your
camera, use the app to zoom in and get the view
exactly how you want it. There are also some
things that you shouldn’t do when placing
or installing your camera. Don’t cover your camera
or try to conceal it in a box or enclosed area. This can cause it to overheat
and disconnect from Wi-Fi. Placing your indoor Nest
camera near a window so it can see outside
also isn’t recommended. Reflections from the glass
can affect your camera’s night vision. Prolonged exposure
to direct sunlight can cause it to overheat
and disconnect from Wi-Fi. You also shouldn’t
paint your camera. This may void your warranty. However, you can paint the
power cable and cable clips to match the wall if you want. Once you’ve found a good
spot for your camera, you’ll test that it can
stream video from there. If you’re going to
mount your camera, hold it exactly where
you’d like to mount it. If you don’t see the
camera video in the app, try moving the camera a bit. Sometimes even a few inches
makes a big difference and improves the
Wi-Fi connection. Mirrors, large appliances
like refrigerators, and other large objects can
affect the Wi-Fi connection. If moving your camera
a little doesn’t help, look for another
place to put it, and check the
video stream again. You should mount
your camera only after you’ve checked that it
can stream video from the spot. Use the wall mount as
a guide to mark holes if you need to drill. Then use the included
screws to mount it. That’s it. To learn more about your Nest
camera and how to use it, visit our support website.
