OhmConnect now works with Nest through Google Assistant. Link your Nest thermostat to your OhmConnect account to automatically go into Eco Temperatures during #OhmHours. By linking your device, you get to rake in those rewards without lifting a finger.
Take action to keep your Nest connected to OhmConnect
Google recently made some changes to their Nest connections with third party services, like OhmConnect. These changes are a part of Nest and Google Home joining together as Google Nest earlier this year. You'll need to migrate your Nest connection for your thermostat to continue participating in AutoOhms and #OhmHours.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Download the latest Nest app and migrate your Nest account to a Google account by selecting “Sign in with Google” at the login screen. Note that you'll need to use the same email for your Nest and Google accounts.
- During the migration process, you’ll be required to disconnect your OhmConnect services which will appear on the ‘Disconnect Works with Nest’ screen.
- Once you've migrated your account, link your new Google Nest account to OhmConnect here. Your Nest and OhmConnect emails can be different.
Why connect a smart thermostat to OhmConnect?
Some reasons why you might want to consider upgrading your outdated thermostat to a newer, smarter model:
