Start a routine before wake up

Community Member

Is there any way to make sure automation starts an action before the wake up routine? 

Basically I would like to switch on my coffee maker 5 minutes before my wake up; the challenge is that I wake up almost every day at a different time and I tend to forget to program stuff before going to bed.

Can anyone help?

Hi marianiandrea,

Thanks for posting here in the Google Nest Community.


I know how important it is to adjust your routine anytime you want to. We have a feature to delay a routine, but to start an action ahead the set time is not yet supported.  We appreciate people who are keen on sharing their thoughts with us. We're always looking for ways to improve. I'd suggest you submit feedback about it, here's how.


Let us know if you have other questions and concerns otherwise, we will be locking this thread after 24 hours.
