What you need to know

  • Google will update the Nest Hub Max in late July to prepare for the Matter over Thread transition.
  • This update will remove the smart display’s capability to act as a bridge between Nest x Yale Lock and your router. 
  • Nest x Yale Lock or Nest Detect owners will need to buy a Nest Connect accessory if they don’t already have one.

An upcoming update to the Nest Hub Max will remove its ability to bridge between smart home devices and your Wifi network. For Nest x Yale Lock owners, that means your lock will stop working properly in late July unless you take action. 

Nest x Yale Lock cannot connect directly to your router; instead, it requires a Nest Connect accessory or the Nest Hub Max to bridge between the two. The same also applies to the Nest Detect door/window sensor.
