How do I create a Scene with my Google Nest Thermostat™?​

A "Scene" controls multiple devices with the press of a button based on the pre-configured list(s) you create. Scenes simplify your life, like a bedtime routine, "returning home" ritual, or whatever other scenario your family might want to simplify and automate. Enhance your smart home with a Scene that automatically changes the temperature or mode of your Google Nest Thermostat™.

A Scene that includes a Nest thermostat will be able to change the target temperature or mode of the thermostat (Heat, Cool, Auto, & Off) while taking other simultaneous actions like disarming your system or turning on smart lights​.

Additionally, Scenes can be included in automation rules to automatically change the Nest thermostat's mode or target temperature based on a change in system state (arming/disarming) or Smart Door Lock activity. To learn how to create a Rule with a Nest thermostat after, click on Automating your Google Nest Thermostat™ based on system actions or events in the options below.

To include a Nest thermostat in a Rule, a Scene that includes a Nest thermostat must be created first.
