We’re excited to announce that August Smart Lock now works with Nest. Whether you’re coming home or heading out, August can set your Nest Learning Thermostat™ to Home or Away.
Begin warming or cooling your home, the moment you walk in – Unlock your August Smart Lock and alert your Nest Thermostat to switch to Home and begin warming or cooling your home.
Save energy when you’re not home – As you lock your August Smart Lock, alert your Nest Thermostat to switch to Away status to help save energy.
Know your home’s temperature, even when you’re away – Don’t worry about how warm or cool your home is while you’re away. You can see the temperature of your Nest Thermostat in the August app.
Here’s How it Works
For those of you that already own an August Smart Lock and a compatible Android or iOS device, August enables you to control your Nest Thermostat through the August app. By linking the August app to your Nest account, you can set your Home and Away status through the August app when you unlock or lock your door. You will only be prompted once to set your status to Home or Away when you arrive and unlock your door, so coming home is even simpler for family and friends arriving after you. You can also view your home’s temperature while you’re away.
August’s support knowledge base has Frequently Asked Questions to help you get started.
