About this app

At Google Nest, we make products that are beautiful, helpful and easy to use. The Nest app is no exception.

Control your Nest thermostat, arm and disarm your Nest Secure alarm system, see your home with Nest Cam, and get an alert if Nest Protect goes off – all in one place. And receive notifications on your Android phone or tablet.

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. Forget to set the alarm? It will notice, and send you a Remind Me alert.

Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Thermostat E

Thermostats that program themselves to help you save energy.

- Change the temperature from the subway or the sofa using your phone.
- See how much energy you used, and why.
- View and edit your schedule.
- Get extreme temperature alerts before your home gets too cold.

Nest Secure alarm system

- Arm and disarm your home remotely from the app.
- Receive a Remind Me alert if you leave home and forget to set the alarm.
- Receive a security alert on your phone telling you what triggered the alarm – a door or window opening, or someone entering a room.

The quality has improved from the original transition. I was very happy with my Nest doorbell when it was still "Nest". I don't get the same quality of performance now with the Google relationship. My notifications are coming in sometimes 45 minutes after the event on the app so I had to setup email notifications which are timely. I am unhappy with the response time on the app as it defeats the purpose of having a video doorbell.

We appreciate your feedback, Janice. Your Nest Hello depends on the speed of your network — make sure that there's less wireless interference caused by devices like baby monitor, microwave oven, etc. Rebooting your camera and router can help refresh the connection too.

It's a good app for simple settings, but the schedule interface is so profoundly bad that I can't rate this more than 3 stars. They created a UX so unique it feels borderline alien, and it's on a screen that you use so infrequently that you will never spend the time to learn it. It isn't intuitive, it isn't pretty, and it is so unusable it probably is costing consumers considerable amounts of money because they can't figure out how to do something as basic as a nighttime schedule.

It has a mind of its own! I have it set to 68 for heat and it turns itself on and heats to 70. I'll turn it off at night because I don't like to be hot and I don't trust it to keep the right temp - and I'll STILL wake up to it running and heating my place to 70/71. I turned off learning mode, since the previous owner said it caused nothing but problems, and it's STILL causing problems. I do love that I can adjust the temp from my phone, but I feel l have to fuss with it too much.
