Decent enough application; Gets the job done for what it is at the moment. However, I'm really disappointed that the ability to add others is an all or nothing premise, still, after all this time. I'd love to see the ability to actually have the "owner" account be able to assign each connected device individually as well as just what actions they are able to perform with the device(s). Having everyone with God Mode isn't very encouraging to add others with when you've now just automatically allowed them to effectively delete the account and all devices... when I may have just wanted to give them a range of temperatures they can set between a certain time on certain days, for example.
All around works great. Only complaint I have is pushing the cool/heat button does not work very well. The button size could be increased for ease of use in my opinion. There is a lot of dead space on the screen and 4 tiny buttons across the bottom.
"At Nest, we make products that are beautiful, thoughtful and easy to use. The newly redesigned Nest app is no exception." Rubbish. Your app design is poorly thought out. It is inconsistent (hot water) and illegible (history and schedule). I have reported this to support but was fobbed off with a lame excuse.
The app is ok. It works mostly. The pc access is very bad. But without the 100 dollar/year subscription the nest cam is useless. Look at other cameras that do the same with no subscription required.
Didn't have many problems running just thermostat, but now that I've added camera, this app is having issues. I went through customer support but it continues to happen. Customer support always tell me that there's many things that can be done to resolve issues, I've tried everything they've suggested already and the issues persist. The camera is just not a reliable service.
Still frequently doesn't start playing video. Can scroll to events and see images flash up, but then never starts playing video. Why isn't there a play/pause button?
Quickly get help and find answers with our new in-app Help Chat and Knowledge Base search. Just tap the menu icon in the upper left corner of the Nest app home screen, then tap Support.
Now you can assign new Works with Nest partner devices to a specific home. You can also reassign existing devices to a home by ‘Remove all connections’, then choosing which home you want to remove the connection from, and the other home will remain assigned.
