NOTE: This app is currently unavailable until Nest opens back up their review process.
Use the Nest Integration app to connect your Nest thermostat to your Hubitat Elevation™. Once your Nest device is connected you will be able to use it in our rule building apps.
Before using the Nest Integration app, you will need to create an online Nest account. Owning a Nest device obviously helps, too.`
To get connected:
- Load/open the Nest Integration app in your Hubitat Web Interface.
- Choose the Login to Nest button. This will open a new browser window where you will be asked to enter your email address and password.
- Nest will ask for permission to access several Nest features. Select Allow.
- Back in the Nest Integration app, select Manage/View Devices to add your Nest devices.
