Alexa Tip: Connecting Nest Equipment with the New Echo Plus

The new Amazon Echo Plus sports a built-in smart home hub based on the ZigBee specification. For those other hardware devices that also use the same specification, setup should be easy and automatic. However, smart home hardware like devices from Nest, still need additional Alexa skills installed and account linking.

Nest has skills available for both its thermostat and camera:

Once the skill is installed, you’ll be required to link your Amazon and Nest accounts. More information: Learn how to control your Nest products with Amazon Alexa
