Setting up a link between your Home Connect app and your Nest account will save you time and energy, and ensure your home is safer and more secure. So you can remain relaxed when you're out and about. For example, if your Nest switches to "Away" and your oven is still on, you will be notified and you can even switch it off remotely. If you are away from your home for a longer period of time, the app will ask you if you wish to switch your fridge into holiday/eco mode so that you can save energy. And, in the event that your Nest Protect detects an emergency, it also lets you switch off your home appliances easily from outside the home. Find out here how you can link Nest with Home Connect and the options available to you when you use Nest together with Home Connect.
