How do I remove Nest Protect from my Nest Account?

You can remove a Nest Protect from your Nest Account with the Nest app or on the Web. Here’s how.

To remove a Nest Protect from your Nest Account, start by logging into the Nest app. Then follow these steps:

1. Select Nest Protect from the home screen.
2. Click or tap the Settings icon in the upper right corner (it’s shaped like a gear).
3. Select the Nest Protect that you’d like to remove from your account.
4. Click or tap Remove Nest Protect.
5. Click or tap Remove to confirm your choice.

Once removed from your Nest Account, your Nest Protect will still work, sounding an alarm if it detects smoke or carbon monoxide. It will also still retain your Wi-Fi settings and the interconnection with other Nest Protect alarms in the home.

However, removing a Nest Protect from your account will limit your access to some of the features:

You’ll no longer be able to view the last reported status of the Nest Protect in the Nest apps.
You won’t be able to adjust the settings to enable or disable features (like Pathlight).
You’ll no longer receive notifications from the Nest Protect on your smartphone or tablet or in your Nest Account.

Each Nest Protect can be associated with one Nest Account at a time. If you want to move a Nest Protect to a new account, first remove it from the old account. And then follow the steps in the article below to connect them to the new account.
