Does a Google Nest Thermostat Work w/ a 2GIG Edge?

A Google Nest Thermostat and the 2GIG EDGE alarm panel cannot communicate directly, but both integrate with Alarm.com. An Alarm.com monitored EDGE will need a thermostat service package and also the Nest Thermostat Integration enabled. Then Alarm.com can control both products remotely.


The 2GIG EDGE was released in 2021. It features a 7" touchscreen display, 100 wireless zones, 100 users, a 700-Series Z-Wave Plus Controller, and facial recognition capabilities. It operates on Alarm.com's remote interactive service.


For the Google Nest Integration, on Alarm.com, you must have an alarm panel connected to the Alarm.com platform. In addition, the account will also require a thermostat package with the Nest Thermostat Add-on. You must also have an iOS or Android device with the Google Home App and Google Assistant. Alarm.com currently does not set a limit for how many Nest Thermostats can be added, but Google has a 20 thermostat limit per account. To learn how to add the Nest to Alarm.com, read our article on how do I add a Google Nest Thermostat to Alarm.com.



After integrating your Nest Thermostat with Alarm.com, you can then control the Nest Thermostat's target temperature, change between Heat and Cool modes, and use the thermostat in scenes that control the temperature and the mode. This integration can not support Alarm.com's rule-based automation, battery level reporting, or advanced configuration settings.

The Google Nest Thermostats support a feature called Eco Mode. This feature senses when no one is home, then automatically switches to Eco Mode. This feature is not supported within Alarm.com and will show as OFF when viewing on the Alarm.com customer website and the customer app.

Alarm.com supports a feature where an integrated thermostat will be automatically shut off in the event of a fire or carbon monoxide alarm. This feature is supported only on thermostats that integrate directly through the alarm panel and is not available for Nest Thermostats.

Finally, you can set up Alarm.com with Google Home. This will allow support for spoken commands using your Google-connected device and the Google Assistant.

Alarm.com is the answer when having a 2GIG EDGE and a NEST Thermostat that you want to have work together. Whether you use the customer website or the mobile app, control both the panel and the thermostat from the same location by logging into a single app or web page.
