Nest Temperature Sensor

Anyone know if these will be read by HA once added to your Nest Account?

Much cool would be if we are able to feed Nest with data from other non Nest temperature sensors.

Agree, I currently use other sensors with automation’s to control Nest.

Just installed one last night, can confirm as of now they do now show up.

Does it provide Humidity as well?

Seems to be temperature only, if it senses anything else it doesn’t seem to be utilized in Nest’s official app yet. Can’t find any updated API documentation either at this time.

@SlyBlueFox How did you get this working? My temperature sensors are not showing up.

OMG I’m sorry I fat fingered that, they DO NOT show up.

Ah, well that is disappointing. I hope that it eventually is supported.

Hey @Coolie1101, do you have the automations to control Nest with additional sensors in github? I’ve just installed my Nest and I’m looking how to control it using the temperature of the other room that I have installed a Sonoff TH16.

Many thanks!

Nothing on github, I ended up just using the set home mode service with device tracking, since Nest is already set to the temp we like see below.


- alias: "Set Nest to Home Mode"
  hide_entity: true
  initial_state: true
    - platform: state
      entity_id: climate.living_room
      to: 'eco'
    condition: and
      - condition: template
        value_template: '{{ states.sensor.pws_temp_f.state < 65 }}'
      - condition: state
        entity_id: ''
        state: 'home'
  - service: script.turn_on
    entity_id: script.nest_home_mode


alias: Nest Home Mode
  - service: nest.set_mode
      home_mode: home

Available SERVICE options.

The trigger can be pretty much anything you want.
