Nest Binary Sensor


The nest binary sensor platform lets you monitor various states of your Nest devices.

You must have the Nest component configured to use these sensors. The nest binary sensor will automatically be setup when you do.

To customize which binary sensors are enabled, you can add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
binary_sensor:
  - platform: nest
    monitored_conditions:
      - 'fan'
      - 'is_using_emergency_heat'

If you leave monitored_conditions blank, all sensors that are available for your devices will be used.

  • monitored_conditions array (Optional): States to monitor.
