How can I automate my Google Nest Thermostat™ based on system actions or events?​

Set up Rules in the Frontpoint app or website to automate your Google Nest Thermostat™ - making it more intelligent and responsive to events that occur. To create a Rule with a Nest thermostat, a Scene that includes a Nest thermostat must be created first. To learn how to create a Scene with a Nest thermostat, click How to create a scene in the options below.

When configured, your Nest thermostat can automatically change its mode or target temperature based on a change in system state (arming/disarming) or Smart Door Lock activity.

For inspiration to set up your own automated Nest thermostat rules, here are a few customer favorites:

  • Set a new target temperature for the Nest thermostat when getting home and disarming the system.

  • Turn the Nest thermostat off when a Smart Door Lock is locked.

  • Change the Nest thermostat's mode to heat or cool when going to bed and arming stay your system.

  • Turn the Nest thermostat on and set a target temperature when a Smart Door Lock is unlocked.
