Nest Temperature Sensor with latest Nest Thermostat

Community Member

Hi! I have the latest Nest Thermostat and I added it using the Google Home app (Nest app redirected me there) but when I try to set up the Nest Temperature Sensor I'm being redirected to the Nest app where I can't add this sensor because I get a message about the need of having a thermostat first (which is in the Google Home app but not in the Nest app).

How can I set up the sensor? Help please!!

Currently, the Nest Temperature Sensor is not compatible with the newer Google Nest thermostat.

I have a third generation Nest Learning Thermostat and a Nest Temperature Sensor.  I have been able to install both of them and to attach the thermostat to Alexa BUT Alexa cannot detect my temperature sensor.  Any advice on how to get Alexa to find it?  I really liked being able to ask Alexa what the temp was on the sensor!
