One of the biggest pain for the users of the Nest Protect (2nd Gen) smart alarm is to have to uninstall the device from the Nest app every time one needs to change the Wi-Fi settings on the device. So, if you changed your Wi-Fi password, you will need to remove the Nest Protect smart alarm from your Nest app, and then add it again with new Wi-Fi settings.
Thankfully, a new update is now available for the Nest app that solved this problem. Coming in as version 5.39, the update can install from the Play Store now.
Here’s how you can change the Wi-Fi Settings on your Nest Protect 2nd Gen easily using the updated Nest app.
- Make sure you have updated the Nest app to version 5.39 (or above) from the Play Store.
- Open the Nest app.
- Go to Settings, and select Home info.
- Now, tap Select Home Wi-Fi help.
- Choose the device you want to update.
