Je Nest-producten en de Nest-app up-to-date houden

In general, if your Nest products have a reliable internet connection, they will update themselves automatically in the background. You can also set your phone or tablet to automatically install the latest version of the Nest app.

Nest products were designed to update themselves. So it's important to keep them connected to Wi-Fi and the internet so they can receive updates in a timely fashion.

How to get software updates

Nest products will keep themselves automatically updated as long as they’re connected to Wi-Fi.

But a few things can temporarily delay an update. For example, if you're actively changing a setting while your product is trying to update itself, it might need to wait for you to finish.

For more details, pick a specific Nest product below.

Nest thermostat

When Nest releases an update, your thermostat can automatically install the updatewithout you needing to do anything.

Tip: If you prefer, you can manually update the software on your thermostat. Press your thermostat's ring and select Settings Pictogram van Nest-instellingen en dan Software en dan Update.

Learn about updates for Nest thermostats

We release each update in batches, so every thermostat won’t get updated at the same time. Expect your thermostat to automatically update itself within a week after we announce it. When your thermostat gets updated, an icon appears in the thermostat’s Energy History.

In order to update itself, Nest thermostat has a few basic requirements:

  • It needs to be connected to the internet.

  • Your system can’t be running at the time. If it is, your thermostat will wait until the next time your home reaches its target temperature and your system turns off before installing the update.

  • You aren’t changing the temperature by turning the ring.

  • Its battery needs to be charged to 3.7 volts or higher. If it’s charged to less than 3.7 volts when a software update is released, the update will begin once the battery has charged. You can find your thermostat’s battery level under POWER, battery in Technical Info on your thermostat.

Your thermostat will receive updates whether or not it has been added to an account in the Nest app.

Note: Your thermostat won’t update itself if it detects any problems with its wiring. You must address any wiring errors first.

Nest Protect

As long as your Nest Protect is connected to Wi-Fi and the internet, it can update itselfas we release new software. Because we don’t push the update to all Nest Protects at the same time, you might not get it immediately. If it’s been more than a week and your Nest Protect hasn’t received the latest software, try resetting its connection to your home network. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Nest Protect and press the Nest button on it once. It should say, “Ready. Press to test.”

  2. Then press and hold the button for about 5 seconds until you hear it say, “Checking the network.”

  3. Wait 15 minutes.

  4. Check Nest Protect’s software version again (see "Checking software versions", above). If it has been updated to the latest version, you’re good to go.

  5. If your Nest Protect doesn’t say anything when you press the Nest button, or if it doesn’t update itself, please contact Nest Support as soon as possible. We’re happy to help.

Nest camera, Nest Hello, or Dropcam

As long as your camera is connected to Wi-Fi and the internet, it will automatically update itself when we release new software. You don't need to do anything.

Nest cameras can not be updated manually.

We push updates to Nest cameras in batches. Because we don't push the update to all Nest cameras at the same time, you might not get it immediately.

Nest Secure: Guard, Detect and Connect

 

When Nest Secure is connected to the internet over Wi-Fi and the system is unarmed, it will automatically download the latest software and update itself. You don’t need to do anything.

If a new update has been released but it's not on your Guard OR Detect yet, hang tight: updates are rolled out over a number of days to all our customers.

When Nest Secure will defer updates

There are a few things that may cause Nest Secure updates to be delayed.

  • Guard needs to be connected to Wi-Fi and the internet. If Guard appears as Offline in the Nest app, it won’t update itself and none of your Detects or Connects will update themselves either. For assistance, see our article about troubleshooting Guard’s connection.

  • If you subscribe to cellular backup and your Guard loses its Wi-Fi connection, it won’t update itself while it’s using the cellular connection. It will wait until it has a Wi-Fi connection.

  • If your system is armed, it won’t update itself until you switch it to Off Nest Guard off. This is to help ensure that your home stays protected in case you’re away. In addition, if you arm the system while an update is in progress, it will automatically cancel the update and try again in 23 hours.

  • The Detects in your home need to be connected to Guard. If a Detect appears as Offline in the Nest app, it won’t update itself. For assistance, see our article about troubleshooting Detect’s connection.

  • Detects must have sufficient battery charge to update their software. If a Detect’s battery charge is very low, it won’t update its software until you change the battery. However, all other Detects that have enough battery charge will update.

  • If a Connect appears as Offline in the Nest app, it won’t update itself. For assistance, see our article about troubleshooting Connect.

Your lock is not able to be updated manually. We push updates in batches, so you might not get it immediately.

Important: While your lock is updating, you won’t be able to use the keypad or the Nest app to lock, unlock, or change settings. The update should only take a few minutes. The indicator light inside your home will pulse blue during the update.
