My handyman installed my thermostat and it's working. Now I need to enable it so my google app can see it. It's at my vacation home about 900 miles away so I'm not connected to that wifi network. How do I configure access remotely? thanks

You’ll need to be able to touch your thermostat to add it to your account in the app. This means that you won’t be able to add it remotely.

Can someone else do it for me? I live 2000 miles from my rental.

The device running the Google Nest or Google Home app, which controls your thermostat must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your thermostat.

Accordingly, you cannot remotely control your thermostat from phone or via internet unless you're connected to same WiFi network as thermostat, that is your home network, in ALL cases. Is this correct? Essentially, this means you have no remote operation capabilityfor your home thermostat. Is this correct as well?

No, this just refers to setup. Once the thermostat is added to the appropriate app and connected to Wifi, you can control it remotely using the app.

Can handyman set up the Nest on his phone ( I assume it need to get username & password) then can log in the account and adjust it from far away ?

My NEST learning thermostat (Gen 3?) is not connected to my home WiFi, but otherwise controls the house temperature. Since it was not setup to connect to home WiFi at setup, what steps do I need to take now to get it connected to home WiFi. Thanks
