unfortunate mistake - nest thermostat without pre-existing thermostat

Community Member

I bought the nest thermostat with intention of monitoring the temperature, unfortunately i didnt research the prerequisites and impulsively bought it. Its stuck with me - and shop is not allowing me to return it.  Any chance i can still use  without existing thermostat, heater + cooling - wiring; i just wanted to monitor the temperature and trigger some automation on turning on/off smart devices...

No, unfortunately. It can't be used as a standalone device and needs to be connected to a HVAC system.
