Nest Sensor


The nest sensor platform lets you monitor sensors connected to your Nest devices.

You must have the Nest component configured to use these sensors. The sensors will be setup if the nest component is configured and the required configuration for the nest sensor is set.

To enable sensors and customize which sensors are setup, you can extend the Nest component configuration in your configuration.yaml file with the following settings:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
nest:
  sensors:
    monitored_conditions:
      - 'temperature'
      - 'target'

By default all sensors for your available Nest devices will be monitored. Leave monitored_conditions blank to disable all sensors for the Nest component.

Configuration variables:

  • monitored_conditions array (Optional): States to monitor.

The following conditions are available by device:

  • Nest Thermostat:
    • humidity
    • operation_mode
    • temperature
    • target
    • hvac_state: The currently active state of the HVAC system, heating, cooling, or off.
  • Nest Protect:
    • co_status
    • smoke_status
    • batter_health
  • Nest Camera: none
