Does Nest work with Amazon Alexa?
Good news for “blended” smart home owners: Google Nest this week introduced (Opens in a new window) a new Amazon Alexa skill for its 2021 cameras and doorbell. The virtual assistant now supports live-view streaming from Nest Cam outdoor/indoor (battery), Nest Cam indoor (battery), Nest Cam with floodlight, and Nest Doorbell (battery) to Echo Show, Fire TV, or Fire tablets.
As an added perk, doorbell users can engage in two-way talk with visitors through Alexa-enabled speakers, TV products, and tablets, Eventually, Amazon’s tech will support announcements when any Google Nest device detects someone at your front door. While select integrations between Nest and Alexa have been available for some time—customers with a Nest Learning Thermostat can already tell Alexa to adjust the temperature—older cameras and doorbells will benefit from additional cross-platform integration.
To pair Google Nest with Amazon Alexa, first confirm your Nest account has migrated to Google (or follow the steps to do so), then use the Alexa mobile app or Amazon website to find and enable the feature. Add as many Nest devices as you have to the Google Home app and get started asking Alexa to notify you when someone rings the doorbell or announce when a camera detects motion.

4. Check your thermostat’s wiring – Symptoms caused by wiring issues usually occur when you’re first installing your thermostat. Important: Turn off power to your system at the system switch or fuse box. This helps protect your system and thermostat from possible damage. Check that each wire is fully inserted into the base and isn’t corroded.
- Pull the thermostat display off the base.
- Pull out one wire and inspect it.
- The exposed part of the wire should be clean, straight, and 3/8″ (1 cm) long. Cut and re-strip any crooked or corroded wire ends.
- Reinsert the wire. The connector button should stay down. If it’s not, the wire isn’t fully inserted. Repeat the above steps with each wire.
- Once you’ve checked all the wires, push the display onto the base until you hear a click.
- Turn the system power back on.
- If your thermostat shows you a blinking red light, the battery is charging and it’ll eventually turn on. It can take up to an hour if the battery is extremely low.
- If there’s no blinking red light, it’s possible that you’ve put wires into the wrong thermostat connectors. Make sure you’ve entered your system’s wires correctly into the app and follow the wiring diagram it gives you.
