Control your Nest Learning Thermostat, arm and disarm your Nest Secure alarm system, see your home with Nest Cam, and know if Nest Protect goes off – all in one place. And get notifications on your iPhone, 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. Forgot to set the alarm?

I’m sure there’s some crazy way to manipulate the app to make it “hold” the temp, but I can’t figure out how. I understand some people have 9-5 jobs and the learning is a great feature for them. However, we have nothing even close to a 9-5 jobs so this learning our schedule is a joke. I bought it to adjust the temp from my phone. Not for it to think it can figure out my crazy schedule. Why can’t you just Hold the stupid temp?? That’s what I want. And if it changes the temp of our baby’s room one more time, I’m going to scream. I have NEVER changed it to anything other than 72 during the day and 70 at night. That’s it. Then I look at the app and it says it’s 67 degrees in her room. This is completely stupid and would never recommend this product to anyone

No distinguishing doorbell sound

We have the doorbell, outdoor camera and thermostat and are would give Nest an excellent review if it weren’t for the fact that there is no distinguishing notification sound for when the doorbell actually rings. There should be a way to have a separate chime or sound for the doorbell ringing and be able to adjust its volume so it gets your attention from across the room from your phone. Right now I get the same notification of leaves blow by the front door as if someone rings the doorbell. This needs to be fixed ASAP as the doorbell feature is one of the main reasons we got the product.

Nest is one of the best

I have Nest cameras surrounding my home, indoors to monitor our dog when away, the doorbell and the thermostat. Love them. I’ve used Ring, Reolink and other remote camera apps.. Nest has the best user interface for playback. To be able to swipe and see video at the same time is clutch. I’d give it a 5 star if there was an option to pause playback. The home/away settings are great, motion zones.. great. Maybe add the WiFi strength per camera like Ring does...
