Let’s start working together.

What if your product could work with ours to make your home more comfortable, more efficient, more aware?

Our products are in homes across the world, on hundreds of thousands of phones, and on the mind of anyone thinking about the future of home technology.

We’ve been focused on creating the best possible user experience. Now we want to expand it.

So we’ve been working on ways to enable developers to work with Nest. Let’s create some simple, delightful experiences together. Questions?

Frequently asked questions

What is the Nest Developer Program?

We’re creating a web API that will allow your product, app, or service to work with the Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect.

What kind of APIs are you providing?

We’ll provide a near real-time web API that allows control of the Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect and display of its current configuration.

Who will be allowed to participate in the developer program?

We’ll work with any developer, from individuals creating their own apps to large corporations.

How will third-party clients communicate with Nest servers?

Powerful ideas need powerful tools. Our API will use the Firebase communication protocol. Firebase has a set of well-documented, widely-used clients for JavaScript, Objective-C, and Java. We’ll also be using the Firebase tool Forge for rapid prototyping.

What will be used to authenticate users and authorize third-party integration?

Protecting the security and privacy of our Nesters is very important to us. For authentication and authorization, we'll use the industry standard OAuth 2.

When is it going live?

We plan to have the Nest Developer Program up and running by early 2014.
