A:AnswerThe way it works is you need one main thermostat and then you pairs these with it. In the app, you scroll down to see what the temperature is in each room you've put it in and you can tell the thermostat to cool based on any of the rooms temperatures. You can only hook up one thermostat to your house. These are a wonderful and cheap addition. At a moment's notice you can see what the temperature is at your base thermostat or your garage or bedroom or whatever.
A:AnswerSure, but I want comfort in the master bedroom if that's where I'm sleeping. That's what the time zones are for - you can tell it to cater the temperature to your master bedroom during night time hours only, but the main living area during the day.
A:AnswerAt this time the Nest Temperature sensor can only be scheduled to take priority during certain times of the day, but doesn't have the ability to only take over if a certain temperature is met. With that said we'll be happy to send this up as a feature suggestion for you.
A:AnswerWhen the Nest Thermostat 1st Gen and the Nest Thermostat 2nd Gen products launched, they were designed without Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities and they run older chipsets with less memory and processing power than our newer thermostats. This accessory launch does not mean that first and second generation Nest Learning Thermostats need to be upgraded. They continue to help people save energy and stay comfortable, and they receive regular software updates just like the newer thermostats. They simply do not work with this specific accessory.
A:AnswerYes in the app one will be able to see the temperature of the thermostat and each attached sensor. Farsight will show the temperature from the sensor (thermostats built in or remote) that is currently set to control the temperature.

Love these guys - perfect with Learning Thermostat

These little guys are so cool and go unnoticed if put up in the right spot but they're so smart and hard working. I just got my Nest Learning Thermostat and one of the goals was to better regulate the temperature throughout our 2 story townhome.
It's one of those that it's hot in the bedroom, cold in the office, stale in the dining room, etc.
I swear I noticed an instant difference within 2 to 3 hours of installing the thermostat and sensors. Not only that it made it all really easy to regulate and adjust in app via Nest, see the temps in Google Home and you can adjust the temp via Assistant (I'm sure you have a Nest Audio Speaker if you're purchasing this).
I installed it pretty much right after the last billing cycle with Duke Energy and I'm hoping these tools can help with our energy costs. I suppose time will tell. However even if it stays the same, it's worth it for the control over the different zones. Plus you get a free NEST RENEW subscription which teaches you about going green, you earn leaves, I'm honestly not sure what all it does. I'm still learning the Thermostat abilities in app.
And yes while I am the OFFICIAL-unofficial 'Google Guy' I say I Highly recommend the censors and the Learning Thermostat. (If for no other reason it's worth the extra $ for that hot stainless steel finish and gorgeous display!)
I installed a Nest Learning Thermostat earlier this year in our new-to-us house. It had been functioning properly up until it started heating up in Florida. The thermostat is on the wall next to the garage, and there is unfortunately very little insulation on this wall.
I decided to try the temperature sensor and mount it to the wall across from the thermostat in a more central part of the house. Setup was easy and took a total of about 5 minutes. After the temperature on the sensor stabilized, my A/C has been running less, and the temperature throughout the house is more stable. There is about a two-to-four-degree difference between the sensor itself and the Nest Thermostat.
I can set a sensor schedule so that the system runs based on the sensor temperature during the day, and at night based on the Nest thermostat itself, and this works along with the temperature schedule I have set on the Nest Learning thermostat itself.
Hopefully this little guy - along with having my A/C system serviced regularly (change your filters monthly and have an HVAC tech check your system annually!!) should help with my outrageous energy costs during the summer.

The perfect thermostat sensor to maintain the right temperature in the place you are in the house. It is preferable to use it when you go to sleep to maintain the exact temperature of the room and save electricity.
