Nest schedules and automation
All thermostat schedules and settings must be configured using Nest.
The Nest integration with Bell Smart Home allows you to control the target temperature, thermostat mode and fan mode. The Nest integration does not support Bell Smart Home rule-based automation, website-programmed thermostat or fan schedules, battery-level reporting, or advanced configuration settings. If you are looking for these features, you can purchase a smart thermostat from Bell Smart Home by calling: 1 800 267-2001.
Nest Eco mode display within Bell Smart Home
If set up, the local Nest thermostat automatically switches to Eco mode after it senses that nobody is home. This feature is not supported in the Bell Smart Home system. When a Nest thermostat is in Eco mode, it appears as off on the Bell Smart Home website and app. To exit Eco mode, change the thermostat’s mode to Heat, Cool or Auto. Eco mode cannot be selected from the Bell Smart Home website or app.
