How it works What works with Nest

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 in to 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.

  • 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 that there might be danger and to help alert those who are hearing impaired. See how it works >

  • Smarter sprinklers for when there’s something wrong

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

  • A bright idea.

    When Nest notices that 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.

    Forgotten 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 set the scene perfectly. And now, every scene can include a customised temperature. See how it works >

  • Your lights can look out for you.

    When Nest Cam senses motion when you’re away, your Philips Hue lights can turn on and off as if you’re home. See how it works >

We take your privacy seriously.
Very seriously.

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

Before you choose to connect any device or service to Nest, we’ll explain exactly what the benefits 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. Full stop.

You can disconnect at any time.

Every company we work with is required to follow a list of guidelines that limit how they can use the information that 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 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 that communication between Nest and other third-party companies is always encrypted.

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