There’s no place like a Nest home.

How it works

  • Start with Nest.

    All you need is a Nest Thermostat, Nest Protect or Nest Cam. Add another product, like a light bulb, and they’ll start to notice each other, learn from one another, and help you out – all on their own.

  • Simple, secure setup.

    Sign into your light bulb app, tell it to connect to Nest, then verify your Nest Account. It’s private, secure, and you’re always in control. Learn more >

  • It just works.

    You don’t have to be a tech geek to get things working. Once you connect a product to Nest, it automatically starts doing things for you, without you having to program it.

The keyless lock for your Nest home.

Forgot to lock the front door? No problem. It’ll lock by itself. And when you come home, you can open it with your phone. When the Yale Linus lock works with Nest, you can check if the door’s closed, give visitors a temporary passcode and see when they came and left – all from your Nest app.

  • A brighter way to think about fire safety.

    If Nest Protect detects smoke or carbon monoxide, LIFX bulbs can flash red to let you know there might be danger and help alert those who are hearing impaired. See how it works >

  • More lighting control, even when you’re out.

    If Nest Cam sees a person at your place while you’re away, Caséta Wireless dimmers and switches can turn on your lights to make it look like you’re home and give you peace of mind. See how it works >

  • Smarter sprinklers when there’s something wrong

    Smart Garden Hub can power on your lawn sprinklers if Nest Protect senses a smoke emergency. See how it works >

  • A bright idea.

    When Nest notices the house is empty, your Wemo controlled lights can automatically turn off to help you save energy. See how it works >

  • An enlightened way to save energy.

    Forgot to turn the lights off on your way out the door? As soon as your Nest Thermostat goes into Away mode, your LIGHTIFY lights will automatically turn themselves off. See how it works >

  • Set the scene. And the temperature.

    With the press of a button, your Logitech Harmony remote can control lots of things throughout the house to create the perfect scene. And now every scene can include a custom temperature. See how it works >

We take your privacy seriously.
Very seriously.

We make sure you have control over what’s shared.

Before you choose to connect any device or service with Nest, we’ll explain exactly what the benefit will be and what information will be shared. Depending on the connection, that may include basic home and device data, HVAC system specs, smoke and carbon monoxide status, Home and Away states, or Rush Hour Reward events. We don’t share any usernames, passwords, email or home addresses. Period.

You can disconnect at any time.

Every company we work with is required to follow a list of guidelines that limit how it can use the information you’ve agreed to share. We take those rules seriously, and can revoke third-party access at any time. You can also disconnect an integration whenever you’d like. If for any reason you decide to delete your Nest account, we’ll automatically disconnect any active integrations for you.

We take extra steps to keep your data secure.

Privacy is important. But so is security. All our connections use SSL. Which means communications between Nest and other third-party companies are always encrypted.

When you trust Nest with your data, it’s governed by Nest’s and .
