Your Google Nest Thermostat learns the temperature you like when you're home, and turns itself down when you're away to save energy. You can control it from the Nest app, Google Home app or your voice.
After connecting Alexa to your Nest Thermostat in a few simple steps, you can say commands* like:
"Alexa, set the dining room to 68."
"Alexa, increase the master bedroom by 4 degrees."
"Alexa, decrease the living room temperature."
"Alexa, what is the temperature in the guest bedroom?"
"Alexa, what is the kitchen set to?"
"Alexa, set the kitchen to Heat/Cool"
"Alexa, turn on fan on kitchen"
"Alexa, turn off fan on kitchen"
"Alexa, is the kitchen fan on"
"Alexa, is the kitchen fan off"
Google Nest cameras are designed to help you look after your home and family – even when you’re away. Now you can control your Nest camera using Alexa.
After linking your Google account and discovering your Google Nest cameras in your Alexa account, you can start streaming live video to your Echo Show, Echo Spot, Fire TV or Fire Tablets (Gen7 & above). To see your Nest camera feed on the device, just say commands* like:
“Alexa, show the backyard camera"
"Alexa, show the feed from the front door camera"
To stop your Google Nest camera from streaming video, you can say:
"Alexa, hide the kids’ room camera"
