Help Center

The first stop when looking for support for any of your Nest devices is to visit to visit the Google Nest support center. Google is famous for its detailed support articles and the case is the same for Nest devices.

The help center is categorized by device so you do not have to struggle to find help for your device. Whether it is smart locks, thermostats, cameras or alarm systems, once you click on the category, there are popular topics of problems faced with the device.

If none of the topics apply o your particular problem, you should go ahead and describe the issue in the search bar at the top of the help center and a topic will be suggested for you.

The community is an excellent source of device support because it involves many sources of information and you can try various solutions until one proves satisfactory.

Topics on the community page are also categorized by problems Nest devices face. However, you can type your problem in the search bar and search to get a more relevant response.

The best feature about the community is that if there is no response readily available, the post will linger in the forum until a solution is found. The members work tirelessly to find a solution as there is a reward program by Google for those who offer helpful solutions.
