How do I download the NestWatch app on iPhone/iOS?

While on your iPhone/iPad, use this link to download the app. Tap “Install” to complete the process.

Alternatively, open the “App Store” from your Apple device. Search for “NestWatch” and find the app in the results list, then tap “Get.”

If you still can’t see the app, or if there is no “Open” button, you may have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch that is running an older version of the Apple operating system (iOS 6 or 7). NestWatch only works properly on iOS 8 or later. If you have an older version of iOS, then the App Store will not display apps that require an updated operating system.

You can check your iOS version by going to Settings → General → About and looking at the version number. The version number will look something like this: 10.3.1. If that first number is a “8” or greater, the app will work on your device. If you have a 6 or 7, then you will need to update your iOS in order to use NestWatch. To update your iOS, just go to Settings → General → Software Update.
