Help me find the code on the Nest app's QR code scanning screen.

hi everyone, I’m just wondering if somebody can help me to how to add my husband to the Nest app on his phone I can’t find the QR code on the Nest product even though I reset it back to factory and it only saying I was able to find is the key entry and only working one of the phones.  I know you’re trying to add my husband and it seems impossible. I feel frustrated. Thank you.

I'm assuming you're referring to a thermostat setup in the Nest app. Once setup in the Nest app, you don't add it to another phone by scanning the QR code again. You need to invite your husband to the home using the Google Home app.

  1. Download and install the Google Home app.
  2. Login with the same account you're using in the Nest app.
  3. Tap Settings > Add + > Home member.
  4. Enter your husband's name of email address > Next.
  5. Follow the steps on screen.

Be aware that your husband's email must be a Google/Gmail account, and if it's not, it must have a Google account associated with it (go to create a Google account and choose the option to use an existing email address). Once invited, your husband will get an email with a link to join the home. Once he accepts, the thermostat will show up in the Nest app and Google Home app for him when he's logged into his account on his phone.

Hope this helps!
