Want to install a Nest, but there are no wires to connect!

6 days ago

We have decided we want to install a Nest thermostat. I've watched some install tutorials and they say you have to remove the old thermostat and connect the wires to the nest... but our thermostat is remote and there are no wires! As you can see in the photo, when you remove the controller from the wall, there aren't wires behind it. I have looked all over the room and I can't find any cover plates or anything that could be concealing any such wires. What should I do?

Is this a job for a professional? If so, what type of professional (electrician, AC guy?) and how would they be able to fix this?
