Nest Sense is at the core of what makes our products thoughtful. It’s driven by an exclusive combination of engineering and design, and supported by advanced sensors and software algorithms.
Select your product below to learn how Nest Sense makes each Nest product more thoughtful.
To keep you comfortable and help save energy, your thermostat takes into account things like your home’s construction, the weather forecast, what temperatures you prefer and more. It sounds simple, but there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that makes the Nest thermostat a thoughtful thermostat, not just one that’s connected to Wi-Fi.
As Nest Sense is also tailored to your system, you’ll find different features depending on what kind of system you have installed.
- Temperature sensors: Nest thermostats have multiple temperature sensors to help ensure that your home is actually at the temperature you want.
- Light sensors: Nest thermostats use ambient light sensors to help ensure accurate temperature readings. So if your Nest thermostat is in direct sunlight, Sunblock helps compensate so it won’t think that your home is warmer than it actually is.
- Activity sensors: Two activity sensors let your thermostat know when everyone’s gone so that it can turn down the heating to Eco Temperature and help save energy.
- Radiant systems: If you have an in-floor radiant or radiator system, True Radiant will appear, which helps reduce temperature swings typical of these types of heating system. True Radiant lets your system start heating early so that your home will reach your scheduled temperature on time, and turns heating off early so that it doesn’t go over your set temperature.

Nest Protect isn’t just an advanced smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. It does many things that other alarms don’t.
Nest Protect's advanced Split-Spectrum Sensor can keep a close eye on smoke levels, and it will speak to you with a Heads-Up alert to let you know what’s happening before it needs to sound an Emergency alarm.
Nest Protect also has a humidity sensor to let Steam Check help prevent false alarms when you’ve just got out of the shower.

Nest cameras and doorbells
Nest cameras and doorbells use Nest Aware’s advanced algorithms to deliver better, more accurate motion and audio alerts. In addition, Person alerts can let you know when a person (not your pet) has walked in front of your camera.
These kinds of improvements require a lot of computing power, much more than your Nest camera or doorbell can deliver by itself. So we use powerful cloud servers to make Nest Aware’s state-of-the-art detection possible, and we’re constantly improving the algorithms to provide the best possible experience.
