Bug fixes and enhancements
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve had the nest thermostat for almost a year now, and I can say it’s money well spent. First, it was very easy to install. The instructions are easy to follow; I did not have to do any rework. I did not have to hire a professional. Programming the controls was also easy with step by step instructions. I like the fact that it self programs economic settings based on when you’re home. I’m single and working so it’s nice to know it is saving me money by reducing back the heating and cooling temps when I’m not home. And it does it automatically through a sensor that detects motion. This could, however, be a problem if you have a big dog. You can also control the settings using your smart phone, which is what I do pretty much all the time. I can even control it from work and by using Google voice. This system requires a dependable WiFi. If the WiFi goes off line, however, as it has done with me a few times, the system will still function but you won’t be able to control it from you smart phone. Once the WiFi is back on line, the thermostat will automatically resume previous settings. And best of all, it has saved me hundreds of dollars in utility savings. And it looks sharp on the wall. Well worth the money, and so easy for DIY’ers. Definitely worth a five-state rating!!
Great system and app, but a little buggy on the google puck
I love having the convenience of a smart thermostat and all the bells and whistles it has. I particularly love the “at home” or “away” option, so when I’m not there it’s not running and I don’t have to worry about turning it off myself and when I get home from work the house has already started warming for me before I even get in the door! However, the app keeps logging out while I’m using it or I keep getting signed out somehow so when I open the app, I have to sign in… I think that’s because of the google puck through google home tho. That’s really annoying when you’re trying to warm up the house early in the morning or late at night. Almost defeats the purpose of having it on WiFi.. it’s quicker in that case to just go change it. Also, the motion sensor setting for “at home” or “away” is not practical. If you’re watching tv, you’re outside, have the thermostat in a hallway, or not where you are moving around, and it shuts the system off… I own my home and live alone so I don’t walk down the hall for hours some times on the weekend. Better to use phone location for “at home” or “away”, unless you have kids running around all day lol...
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.
