If you own the Nest thermostat, then you’re most likely familiar with the built-in remote reset feature that allows you to turn off power and energy in your home without actually having to go near the thermostat and do it manually.
If you aren’t aware of this feature, well, it might be time to learn how you can make use of it! Keep reading to find out more about the remote reset features in Nest thermostats as well as some neat tricks you can use that will allow you to perform these functions without even having to go near your thermostat!
Step 1: Create a Nest Account
If you don’t already have a Nest account, the first step is to create one. You can do this by going to the Nest website and clicking on the Sign-Up button. Once you’ve entered your information and created a password, you’ll be ready to move on to the next step.
When I signed up for my account, I had to enter my home address and utility company info to get the process started. For most people that should be all that’s needed, but if not then you may need to contact them for assistance (check out their Contact Us page).
Step 2: Connect Multiple Devices
If you want to be able to reset your Nest thermostat remotely, you’ll need to connect it to multiple devices. That way, if one device fails or is out of range, you’ll still be able to access your thermostat. Here’s how to do it:
First, download the Nest app on your smartphone. Then, open the app and tap on the ‘Nest Account’ tab. Next, tap on the ‘Settings’ icon.
Step 3: Use the Google Assistant to Control Your Smart Home
The Google Assistant can be used to control your smart home devices in a variety of ways. You can ask it to turn on the lights, adjust the temperature, or even set a timer.
Plus, if you have a Nest thermostat, you can use Google Assistant to reset it remotely! Here’s how
Step 4: Manage All Devices From One Place
The best way to manage all your devices is from one place. This way, you can keep track of everything and ensure that nothing is left on or off by accident.
The best way to do this is with a smart home hub. By using a hub, you can connect all your devices and manage them from one app or website.
Plus, you can automate tasks so that your home is always running smoothly. For example, if it’s Friday night and the kids are in bed but the lights are still on downstairs because you forgot to turn them off earlier in the day, the hub will know to shut those lights off for you!
Step 5: Get An On/Off Button
If you want to be able to turn your Nest on and off without going near it, you can buy a simple on/off switch. Just connect the switch to the power supply and your Nest will be able to receive commands from the switch.
We suggest installing an on/off button in an easily accessible location like under the cabinet or next to the kitchen sink so that you’ll never have to go back into your living room or bedroom again.
