No Siri or homekit integration
Nest is currently the least smart of all the smarthome devices. While everything else, including Ikea's budget lights integrates nicely with homekit for a single dashboard smarthome, we must endure Google (who own nest) for some reason refusing to give us homekit and Siri integration. I can only assume this is for some corporate bs reason as there is not a single customer service reason for this.
If you are looking for a smart thermostat look at Honeywell or one of the many other brands who are not in a constant fight with apple.
Away from home
The logic behind Nest’s ‘away from home’ is fatally flawed, and what allows you to do is crude & long-wind (it has not been thought thru logically - no ‘common sense’.
1) The majority of homes are occupied by more than one person, and today most people have a mobile phone (at least Nest’s target market do)! So if one person is away the system goes into away mode! Not much fun/use to the person who is still at home!! And switching the system off in winter months, yes you have a safety minimum, but most people would keep a higher figure (say 16/17 degrees) rather than the system’s very low ‘safety’ figure. Personally I have switched off the useless ‘away from home feature’, I reset the schedule to lower temperatures, which can be done via the App anywhere. Please fix it, make it reflect the real world.
2) Setting-Up the Central Heating schedule is laborious, why cannot not be more like the Hot Water schedule which allows you to set an On-Off time (and temp fo CH) as being applicable to every or selected day(s). Clearing & Removing Hot Water On-Off slots is more long-winded & could do with improving
It now takes ages for any changes made to temperature to take effect; this app used to be passable, now it’s useless. I won’t be replacing my camera/thermostat with another Nest product; time to look elsewhere.
