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.

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 security cameras that let you see your home on your phone, inside and out.

- Check in 24/7 with crisp 1080p HD video (Nest Cam and Dropcam Pro only).

There's got to be a better way. Kudos for an app controlled thermostat. But trying to fine tune the schedule with the sliders is neither intuitive or easy. I occasionally adjust the thermostat when it's particularly cold during the day or overnight but this has led to the app "learning" to adjust it in ways I rarely if ever do. Trying to get it back to where I want it is an exercise in frustration if not near futility. Could be a great product if there were ways around the schedule sliders

Editing my review as my previous problems were fixed. But I ly going up to 3 stars as the schedule controls are difficult to manage from a phone. I'd rather type in the temperature ranges than trying to slide things around where it's hard to get exactly what I want without going past or knocking off the other end of the range that I just set.

We're sorry to hear about your experience, Sarah — we're here to help. To fix this, try checking if there's a high latency on your network by running a speed test. Also, if the thermostat is in an area where there's wireless interference, follow the steps here: https://goo.gle/2Rd1HuC For more help, contact us: https://goo.gle/3ie15Ae

So many missing options. No easy way to save your clips. You'd expect a lot more from Google apps. Ring has a better interface. Thermostat also leaves a lot to be desired. The program adjusts itself constantly even though I have that setting turned off. I just want a constant temp!!!!
