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.

Poor notifications. Slow performance.

Why is there no further customisation on what kind of alerts to receive? It’s either all people it sees including familiar faces, or none at all! Should have a choice if one uses Familiar faces feature so you don’t constantly get bombarded with notifications for trusted people.

And if you have added other people to the app you should have the option to control what they can do with it, not grant universal ‘admin’ privileges across the board.

Unreliable and needs a lot of improvement, almost 2 years on.

Does anyone actually read these?!

I doubt very much any of the developers behind this app read these poor reviews or they may have fixed it by now....but you have consistently failed to fix the Home Away feature over many months. Now there is a small yellow warning in the app saying it hasn’t heard from my phone in a few weeks....yes that’s because the app doesn’t recognise where I am at any point. Nothing to do with location services or battery optimisation etc other apps work perfectly with my location.

Does not work properly

I use to be able to see my energy history on the phone but then my nest thermostat 3rd generation stop connecting to the WiFi. After a replacement unit, the energy history on my phone no longer displays it says no energy history which is frustrating as I’ve tried deleting the app and updating it but still have the same problem. Massively disappointed in Nest! I’ve had one problem after another.
