Learn about the Spaces view in the Nest app and how to change the settings

The Spaces view is automatically enabled if you have at least one camera in the Nest app, or if you have a Google Nest Secure alarm system. If you don’t have any cameras or Nest Secure added to the Nest app, you can manually turn on Spaces to see your Nest products organized room by room on the Nest app’s home screen. The product icons on the app home screen are “live,” meaning they show their current status such as your thermostat’s target temperature.

The Spaces view is especially useful if you have multiple Nest products in one or more rooms of your home.

At the top of the screen, you’ll see the home icon with your address and the mode your home is in below it. To manually switch to either Home or Away modes, just tap the icon.

Next, you’ll see rooms with cameras listed first in alphabetical order (bedroom, kitchen, living room, etc.). If you have more than one camera or Google Nest Detect in a room, you’ll see the cameras and Detects grouped together in that location.

Rooms that don’t have cameras or Detects, but have Google Nest thermostats, Google Nest Protects, or a Google Nest Guard, will be listed next in alphabetical order.
