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.

Nest Secure alarm system

Below average

This app is glitchy and not particularly user friendly. Crazy that you can’t sign up for nest aware subscriptions on the app or even add a device to an existing subscription. That’s pretty basic stuff and hard to believe Google can’t get this right. I guess they’re spending all their time improving tracking and advertising algorithms. After trying to install an additional camera using the app and being blocked by a faulty “turn on Bluetooth message” I had to delete the app (at the instruction of tech support) and reinstall to get it to work. But the app was up to date. Frustrating and time wasting.

Google retains ownership NOT you

Current review:
I am happy with the human support that Nest has provided. I was able to talk to a human and they even sent a person to my house!! For free!! They gave me a few months of nest aware for free to compensate for the issues.
Prior review:
Do not buy Nest Products because apparently YEARS after you buy them, they can violate the customer expectation that what you purchase will be exactly what you have and won’t suddenly change to features you DO NOT WANT. I don’t want an annoying light on EVER! Inside my home it is MY HOME! I am easily distracted by things and a light bothers my sensitivities and is a distracted to me. These products can no longer be used in my home and are NOT what I purchased. I am seeking a full refund and will purchase a diff product. Actually my ADT cameras don’t have lights... and I know tons of other brands that don’t either. I also want to return the doorbell, thermostat and neat protect because I want everything in the same app

New number-New account

I recently switched my phone number. For my luck the old phone is no longer active. After activating my new phone and login in to the app the old phone was registered, with no option to select another verification method-really??? After a chat with nest support, I was told that “nothing could be done” on their side to switch over to a new phone number- again really? They told me I needed to create another account. So I was fine I’ll just create another account with my other email accounts I typically use. Nest now a Google owned company. Now the only way to create another account is to create all together a google email account, without the option to allow me select my own email acc from another server/company. The only way to gain access remotely to my thermostat is by creating a brand new account, something I don’t feel should be necessary . You would figure that google could be capable of removing this stupid feature to allow the customer to make changes to their account when needed. For examples like this.
