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

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 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 heating and turning on the camera when you leave. Forgotten to set the alarm? Nest notices and will send you a Remind me alert. And everyone at home can receive notifications and control the Nest products that they need with their own Nest account – no more sharing passwords.

Very slow to start and no notification sound customisation

I have several Nest devices at home. Although the hardware is excellent the app that controls it is very poorly designed, making the user experience very annoying. To start with, the app takes forever to start and is very slow at sending alerts. This is especially bad with the Nest Hello door bell, as people that rang the bell have left by the time you receive the alert and the app started to interact with them. Additionally, although most competitor products allow to customise doorbell alert sounds, the Nest app doesn’t. This means that you get the same sound alert when someone presses the door bell, when you get a text, when the neighbour walks past the front of your house, or when a burglar is braking into your car.
The app is very poor, Nest doesn’t have a clear mean to suggest improvements to it, does not seem to acknowledge the users reviews (current rating of the app is 2.1 out of 5) or feedback on the Nest community forum, with the issue being open for over a year and Nest seems to ignore all suggestions to improve it, independent of the channel used to suggest improvements.

Do NOT buy the NEST HELLO if you have an iPhone doorbell. You will only get a tritone alert , which you can not change and can not be heard, many customers have complained, for months but NEST DO NOT CARE and just carry on selling a poor product. Please google this to see many people complaining on their forum but for nothing to be done. So basically if you are out and about and someone rings your bell you will not hear it and if someone is on your driveway at 02:00 trying to nick your car you will NOT hear anything.....
