The Right Temperature, Right Where You Want It

Nest thermostats come with advanced temperature sensors and algorithms built in. They’re designed to help keep you comfortable, but thermostats aren’t always installed in the best location. For instance, your thermostat might be tucked away in a closet, or mounted in a drafty hallway. The baby's room get too cold? With the Nest Temperature Sensor, you can control the temperature of certain rooms in your home during specific times of the day. Just place it on a wall or shelf and get the right temperature, right where you want it.

C-wire is not required

A c-wire (also referred to as a common wire) is a low voltage power wire that many modern thermostats require for their features to work.

This Nest Learning Thermostat does not require a c-wire to work. Nest has a built-in battery that can be charged using the heating and cooling wires.

Nest however recommends that you connect a c-wire if you already have one. To determine if you have a c-wire, please remove your old thermostat's cover plate. You should see several wire terminals labeled with letters. If a wire is connected to the “C” terminal, you have a c-wire.

Nest Sensor

Before you install your sensor, there are some important things you should know about exactly where to place it, and where not to.

Installing Your Sensor

Option 1: Place it on a flat surface

  • The sensor has a rubber foot on the bottom so it will sit on a flat surface, like a shelf, without sliding around.

Option 2: Mount it on a wall

    • Install the screw where you want and hang your sensor using the screw hole on the back. Nest screws are specially designed so you shouldn’t need to drill a pilot hole for most installations. You may need to drill a pilot if you’re mounting your sensor on a hard surface.

Note: Before mounting your sensor, you may want to use it for a week or two to make sure it’s working well in its location. This way, you won’t leave a screw hole in the wall if you need to move it.

It's best to place your sensor:

  • Rooms where you spend a lot of time, such as your bedroom or living room.
  • About chest high: If you install the sensor too high or too low, your system may overheat or overcool the room. This is because the air is generally warmer near the ceiling and cooler near the floor.
  • Within 50 feet (15 m) of your thermostat, so they can communicate.

A ring color for every home

The Nest Thermostat + Sensor bundle has a ring to fit any home’s style. Choose Copper to add a warm touch. Stainless steel is perfect for a classic, versatile look. Black blends in with dark walls and stylish decor. And white looks great in simple, modern homes.
