NEST Auto Away

What is Auto-Away?

Nest uses its activity sensors to detect when a person’s nearby or when you’re using Nest.


Nest doesn’t notice you for a while, it can start Auto-Away.

It’ll turn down your system until your home reaches a minimum or maximum temperature.

You choose those temps when you set up your Nest.

So, if your minimum Auto-Away temp is 50° and it starts getting colder, Nest will maintain the house at 50° till you get home.

Nest will turn on Auto-Away a couple hours after you left.

On the other hand, if you generally spend the day working in your room, Nest will learn and give you more time before it turns on Auto-Away.
