We are pleased to announce that starting today, you can add Nest devices to your Hubitat Elevation. This is a limited availability release pending Nest certification.
You can install Nest devices by loading the "Nest Integration" app. From there, you will be walked through the setup to add your Nest devices to Hubitat Elevation. (see Nest Integration Setup Process below).
Currently you can add: Nest thermostats, Nest smoke detectors, Nest cameras. You can also change Home/Away status as well as create virtual presence sensor based on Nest location mode. While video streaming is not currently supported, you can use the Nest cameras to trigger automations based on motion and sound events.
Here are some of the things you can do by adding Nest products to your Hubitat Elevation:
Nest Integration Setup Process:

Click the link to login to your Nest account
A popup window will appear. Log in to your account and allow Hubitat permission to work with Nest.

Select your location from the dropdown menu
The app will discover your Nest devices. Use the dropdown menus to select which ones you would like to use. Nest integration currently supports Nest Thermostats, Nest protects, Nest Cameras and Presence Devices.
