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 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? Nest notices and will send you a Remind Me alert. And everyone at home can get notifications and control the Nest products they need with their own Nest Account – no more sharing passwords.

Great most of the time

Love the control of the thermostat when I’m not home, easy to turn the temp up when I leave work so it’s warm when we get home. We have no use for the learning part of the thermostat, we’ll control my own temps.
Love the doorbell when the app connects. What is aggravating is when the app won’t connect and there is no good reason. Can’t even access past videos before this happens so We are left in the dark.
Still trying to figure out some of the google assist features, should be easier to make work.
Found out yesterday that one can’t upgrade from a month to month without loosing all video history, temporarily loosing the ability to see any history. I’m told that video clips are preserved, we will see.
UPDATE: seems the representative I chatted with was incorrect, my video history was not removed. She got me upset for nothing.

I love this app.....but the default sounds gets annoying. We have a nest and a ring doorbell and the ring has a very distinctive sound when some one comes to the door. Can y’all do the same? This would really make this product that much better. And I could distinguish if someone is at the door or just a random alert on my phone. OR if you could give us the options to choose different tones through the nest app would be great too! Hopefully this will be implemented soon, since I see this issue is coming up in other reviews.

Terrible app

This is one of my most inconsistent apps on my phone. Shuts off, doesn’t respond to the change in temperature or heat/cold. The eco mode is spotty at best. Their website/service (includes the app) goes down at least once every other day.

The service going down is really the biggest problem. You are out an about and maybe you want to change your temp? Or turn eco mode off for the pets in the house? Nope, I want to say without exaggeration, 5 out of 10 times it does t work or connect. That is terrible. Thought the app would get better. NOT. Almost two years later and it is still a terrible app. Don’t waste your money. Get a different thermostat.
