Horrible app... again
I don't know what they're doing with this app!!! I wrote a review (as lots of other reviewers) back in January that the app doesn't work remotely from the road when you want to set your thermostat to heat from away. After that review couple of weeks later mid January to end of February I think they made an update, so it worked ok for a few weeks, but I've tried it again for past 3 weeks to turn my nest to heat from away on the road from my Mobile devices, and it's back to the same bad result: every time you try to turn it on the thermostat shows status offline, so we're back to square one: horrible unreliable app that doesn't work and you continue to come back home to ice box house till you turn the thermostat on manually. I don't understand why the company can't just fix this app once and for all, ad apparently so many people complain about the same thing and yet the company continues to present unsatisfied customers with same horrible unreliable app.
We just installed A/C and my wife to my surprise asked installer to change out our thermostats to ones we can control when away from thouse. I was extremely he put in the "Nest".
I downloaded IOS app even with poor ratings.
The next day my wife called me at work and asked if I could shut off the A/C as it came but didn't really need it on yet.
I fired up the app and changed the A/C settings. And shut it off. I called wife who thanked me. As she did not know how to shut it off manually yet, I was stoked the app worked. I have used it on several occasions since and never had any issues as reported by reviewers. Thanks for a great app.
Decent app, needs additional options
Overall it's a decent app, however it could be a lot better with a few more options. Like the option to just run the fan to circulate air. For some reason I can do that via the IFTTT app, but not directly through the Nest app. Also, sometimes I want to set and hold a temp for a certain period of time. For example, let's say I'm up later than usual and I want the heat to stay on a bit longer. Currently if I turn it up I have to remember to turn it back down before I go to bed, or it will stay there until the next scheduled temp change. An option like "Hold temp for 2 hours" would be nice. Even better if you could adjust the time frame.
