What do I need to use the Hue nest integration?
The Hue nest integration requires any hue installation inside your home with at least one light source. Since Philips Hue communicates with nest via our clouds, you will need to make sure you have created a Hue account on my.meethue.com and linked your bridge to it. You will also need at least one nest product (nest protect, nest learning thermostat or nest cam) which is properly set with a nest account. If you have what you need to get started then visit nest.meethue.com to set it up.
Which devices are supported?
The Hue app supports iOS and Android devices. Please check on the App Store or Google Play store which iOS or Android software version is needed to run the Hue app on your device.
Which Philips TVs will support the app?
All Philips Smart TVs with Ambilight for the European markets from 2011 onwards and from 2013 onwards for Latin America support the app.
I get errors during the setup of the Hue nest integration, what should I do?
To set up the Hue nest integration your bridge needs to be reachable via the Philips Hue cloud. Make sure you are able to control your lights from the Philips Hue app, also when your phone's WiFi is off. If this doesn't work, please see www.meethue.com/support/technical . You should also make sure you are using the latest version of your favourite web browser and that your nest app shows your system as connected. Once you've checked this please try again.
Can I control the app via the TV remote control or via my MyRemote app?
For the moment the interaction takes place with a compatible iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.
I've connected my hue and nest accounts. Now what?

Do I need to download a special App to operate my luminaires?
No, if you download the latest version of the app you can control every kind of hue product. Check out the App store or Google play store.
