At Google Nest, we make products that are beautiful, helpful and easy to use. The Nest app is no exception.

Control your Nest thermostat, arm and disarm your Nest Secure alarm system, see your home with Nest Cam, and get an alert if Nest Protect goes off – all in one place. And receive notifications on your iPhone or iPad.

Nest uses sensors, algorithms and the location of your phone to do the right thing automatically, turning off the heat and turning on the camera when you leave. Forget to set the alarm? It will notice, and send you a Remind Me alert.

App is flawed ,

Best investment in many years

I have four air conditioning units in my house and started with one Nest. That Nest was placed in the common area of kitchen, living and dining rooms. I installed it myself which I thought easy but I do everything myself so it may be more challenging if you’re not handy. The instructions are clear and specific which makes for a lot of steps but the good side of that is that if you take your time and follow you will not find it hard. We now have four Nests. As for how the Nest works? Flawless, simple and wonderful. The App is great and easy to use while the Nest itself does adjust as it learns your temperature habits. I’m in my 50’s so I’m still old school and like to walk up to the thermostat and adjust it manually and Nest keeps all the features you’re used to on the actual Nest that’s on the wall. It’s truly the best between modern convenience and Old school. Oh, let me add that my wife is home all day and when she goes out she doesn’t lower our four Nests but Nest allows you to connect a persons cell phone to it so now when my wife leaves the house all four Nests switch to “Away” saving power. Then as soon as she pulls into the driveway all the thermostats go back to normal to make the house adjust to her comfort levels. I can’t give you one reason not to buy one.

Needs hold feature and to be night shift worker friendly

Don’t get me wrong I love nest and nest products they are great. However, I have the Nest E and I wish that there was a temperature hold feature for this or something similar to that. I have attempted to troubleshoot this problem by clearing out The schedule and setting it two times but it always reverts back to Eco or the temperature goes up. I work nights which means I sleep during the day and since I live in a hot dry air and state waking up at 1300 hrs drenched in sweat because The thermostat and the app didn’t talk to each other showing my location and the thermostat were in the same place; the schedule that I set up wasn’t followed; or the fact that the thermostat did not detect any motion for an extended period of time. Not only is this a problem when I am sleeping on my work days as a nurse, but it’s also a problem on my off days when I just want to spend the morning in bed and after six or 7 AM it throws the temperature up to 86°.
Google developers I know you can fix this and I hope you can even if it means downloading firmware to help and upgrading the app. I also know that these are changing times and more people are at home so even more now than ever the thermostat doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing because we are all home now. But you would really help an ER nurse out if you could truly get this fixed on the Nest E and other thermostat.

Nest Security Cameras Excellent Very Happy

We Have Three Nest cameras and the IQ outdoor Cameras Are the way to go for the little extra money we use them on our garage and our main driveway in upstate New York corner of Canada and VT and winters down to -15 and cameras worked with no issue during Cold weather they are powered by cord into outlet and not a battery battery not Recomended for cold weather just a FYI also great WiFi a plus when using them they identified family members vs strangers and if it sees a strangers face We get alerted instantly and can either talk over the camera or turn siren on or lights on whichever approach you wanna use. The better the internet connection the faster the cameras are but that goes for most everything on internet now days just wanted to throw that out there for some that are beginners checking out reviews. Anyways AAA+++++ I’m Very Happy with Nest Cameras IQ version Are ones we used others may be ok to but I only used IQ’s so I can’t say anything on other versions as of yet and yes I would purchase Nest IQ outdoor Cameras again For Sure. Goodluck in your camera adventure and hope this helps.. Happy New Year.!!! Go Trump 2020. !!!!!!
