Product Prep and Review

When you create a product with the Nest Developer program, we allocate a limit of 50 users.

If you are planning a Works with Nest launch announcement for your product, be sure to prepare well in advance of the announcement.

Prepare your product

To prepare your product for review, test and verify that your product complies with our policies and guidelines.

After you have verified that your product meets the guidelines, move on to the next step.

Complete the Product Review Checklist

The Product Review Checklist allows you to select Pass, No, or Not Applicable for each item in the Product Review Guidelines.

For more information, see the FAQ.

Submit your product for review

After you have completed the product prep phase, submit your product for review. The client review verifies that your product is providing your users a great experience with Nest products. We'll review your product and your marketing materials for compliance with our policies and guidelines.
