When your compatible smart home products work together, you can do even more to automate your home, from turning the lights off automatically when Nest devices detect that you've left the house, to controlling your Nest thermostat with voice commands.
Philips Hue lighting and other smart lighting that's compatible with Nest make it easy to control your lights automatically. When Nest Cam detects that someone came home, it can turn on your lights so you can see where you're going, or it can turn off the lights to save energy when you leave. Nest Cam can also turn on lights to make it look like you're home even when you're away.
Control Smart Locks
With a smart lock that works with Nest thermostats, you can set your thermostat to start warming or cooling your home as soon as you unlock your smart lock. You can also save energy by using your smart locks to let your Nest thermostat know when you leave home.
With smart speakers and voice assistants, you can control your Nest devices just using your voice. Ask Google or Alexa to change the temperature or to tell you where the thermostat is currently set. Using a voice assistant that works with Nest makes it easier to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Wireless Network Tips
Since Nest devices and other smart home products rely on your Internet connection for reliable performance, you may want to consider upgrading your wireless network for a faster, smoother connection. See our Wi-Fi tips to learn more about building a strong home Wi-Fi network.
