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 nest binary sensor will automatically be setup when you do.

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

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

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

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
  • Nest Camera: none
