NEST INTERFACE UPDATE: Nest updated their interface for the one that you see in the screenshots. Climate supports resizing of its window so that you can adjust the window to better fit the new interface. I plan on getting an update released soon to fix some other compatibility issues (such as temp in the menu bar and some notifications) that occurred with the Nest update. Thanks for using Climate!
NOTICE: Temps in menu bar and notifications on temp changes is currently not functional. This was broken with the last Nest update. I will work on getting an update out as soon as I can.
Climate provides quick and easy access to manage your Nest® thermostat directly the menu bar on your Mac. You no longer need to walk to your Nest in order to change temperature or settings.
Display your temperature settings directly in the menu bar. This allows you to quickly glance and verify that your thermostat is setup just as you like it.
Receive notifications straight to your desktop when your Nest® temperature has changed, has been set to Away and other important events.
Have you ever been home and wished that you could temporarily stop your Nests from getting set to Away? You can allow Climate to ensure that your Nest never enters away mode for up to 8 hours. Then you never need to worry about unwanted changes in temperature when your Nest thinks you are not home when you actually are.
**Configuring Notifications** I am working on preferences to control the notifications. Until that update, you can tweak how the notifications are displayed inside your Notifications System Preference pane.
**Important** In order to use this application, you will need to own a Nest® thermostat and have access to your online account at home.nest.com.

Thank you all for your continued support and admiration for Climate. If you could leave a review for this version, it would be greatly appreciated.
Great App for Nest
I have been using this app on my Imac for about 6 months now and have had no issues, Works as if you were on the webiste with the same interface. I does use about 98mb of memory, but if your going to run a lot of apps in the background you have to expect this and prepare you computer with enough ram to handle the tasks your gping to give it, that’s way I run 32GB on my mac. Reading some of the other reviews, I have not had any of these problems, the apps opens fast and works the same as if you were on the website. This app was well worth the money spent and I use it more to control my nest than the app on my Samsung note 3 or note 10.1 (2014) tablet. I definitely recommend this app for a convient way to control your Nest products.
I would like to see more options for control and longer energy usage history (2 months), but that is up to Nest to fix and has nothing to do with this app.
Update: in last 2 weeks Climate has been diconnecting and having a hard time reconnecting, app seems to just sit there spinning and nothing happening. What happened to the support? Been using for a couple years and all of sudden these issues, please fix, thank you.
Like many other reviews, it’s obvious the developer stopped spending time fixing problems due to some changes to the Nest website. Many of the features we rely on don’t work. After reporting the problems to the developer, it was clear he knew about the problems and wasn’t in much of a hurry to fix them. The last update was in Nov of 2014 and it shows. This is overpriced considering the problems and the lack of devolvement. There are cheaper and free apps that offer the same functions.
I want to love it
I loved this app, but as others have said, it has been neglected by the developer. The app routinely loses nest password information and I have to re-enter it. That’s very bothersome when you just want to turn down the thermostat. If this was fixed I’d give it 5 stars.
