I have a nest point to set up in my bedroom. Do I have to do anything other than plug it in to get it access to the WiFi?

  5. Scan the QR code on the bottom of your device.

    • If you’re unable to scan the QR code, tap Continue without scanning, then enter the setup key on the bottom of your device.
  6. Your point will now connect. For Nest Wifi points, when a sound plays from your speaker, tap Yes
  7. Follow the in-app instructions to finish setup.
  8. If you’d like to add another point, tap Yes in the app when prompted or repeat these steps at a later time for additional points.
  9. Once you’ve added all of your Wifi devices, the app will perform a mesh test to confirm everything is working.
