Nest temperature sensor

Community Member

Looking for advice about the nest temperature sensor. I have a vacation home that we would like to monitor. We already use nest cameras. Is it possible to use the sensor and track the temperature or does it have to be connected to a nest thermostat? I am unable to use a nest thermostat with the current heating system, so I was just hoping to monitor the temperature. Thanks for any information that anyone can give me!

You can’t use a Nest Temperature Sensor without a Nest thermostat unfortunately. The temperature sensor reports temperature data directly to a Nest thermostat in the same home.

Thank you for responding! I appreciate the help.
