Warm up your home when you launch your "Friday Night Movie" Activity. Turn down your Nest Thermostat with a "Good Night" Activity. Or, mute your stereo when Nest Protect detects smoke in the kitchen.
With Harmony and Nest you're in control of your family's comfort and safety.
First, ensure your Nest device is properly set up and configured using the Nest mobile app.
During the setup process Harmony will prompt you to add your various home entertainment and home automation devices. You may add Nest under the HOME CONTROL section of the add device screen. Harmony will prompt for your Nest username and password.

Easily turn the temperature up or down using Harmony from the comfort of your couch.

To access the Nest control panel from your Harmony Ultimate remote, navigate to your Activity home screen and scroll to the bottom of your Activity list. From here you can view and change your Nest Thermostat temperature and mode settings.
Harmony allows you to set pre-defined Nest thermostat temperatures for each of your Harmony Activities. For example, launching Watch TV can warm up your home while Listen to Music turns off your A/C, or does nothing at all.
Repeat these steps for each of your Activities. Once programmed, Harmony will set your home temperature every time you launch this Activity.
Harmony Ultimate allows you to associate Nest temperature settings to a particular Activity directly from your remote. This capability is not possible from Ultimate Home remotes.
Now, the next time you launch this Activity from either your remote or the Harmony smartphone app, your Nest thermostat will automatically adjust your home temperature. If you'd like to remove Activity temperature settings, follow the same steps and select Clear instead of Set on the final screen.
If you're adding a second Nest product then you must re-log in to Nest in order to grant additional permissions for Harmony to interact with the new device.
Yes. Harmony will communicate with as many Nest Thermostats as you have in your Nest account. Each thermostat will appear as a different device on your Activity home screen, and each one may be controlled or associated with an Activity independent of the others. If you have the end auto-away feature enabled on your Harmony, then all thermostats in your home will be notified when you're using your remote.
If you have multiple home locations with one or more thermostat in each building, Harmony will prompt you to select a single home when you are pairing with Nest.
Neither the Harmony hub nor our Harmony servers store Nest username or password credentials. During authentication you are taken to a Nest webpage that allows you to enter your Nest credentials; however Harmony never sees this information. After signing in, Harmony will save a unique permission key that allows us to continue communicating with your Nest device.
Harmony does not track when you are home or away, nor do we track any temperature changes you make. Logitech Harmony respects your privacy. Read more about our privacy and security statement.

Is your Nest Thermostat are in areas of your home that may not detect presence if you're watching TV for a long time? Every time you pick up your Ultimate or Ultimate Home remote, Harmony will notify Nest that someone's present to prevent it from entering auto-away mode. If Nest is already away, Harmony will prompt you to confirm End Auto-Away.
To disable Harmony from notifying Nest of your presence:
This dialogue may appear if your Harmony Hub is unable to reach the Nest Home cloud.
Nest prevents devices such as Harmony from updating your thermostat temperature more than 10 times an hour. If you exceed this limit then Nest will reject any additional temperature changes and Harmony will display the previous temperature setting after several seconds. Waiting an hour will automatically reset this limit.
If you Harmony is still unable to control Nest, then we recommend re-authenticating Harmony and Nest. Learn more.
The Ultimate Home remote lists each of your Nest Thermostats within the DEVICE MENU. You may re-order any of these devices by selecting MENU, then EDIT and then dragging the device to a new order position.
Harmony Ultimate places the Nest Thermostat control panel at the bottom of the Activity home screen and does not allow for it to be re-positioned.
