Great app finally. Would love a thermostat widget. I mean LOVE it. Also would appreciate real video controls like pause and quick rewind or fast forward 15 second buttons would be awesome. Edit: Thermostat now switches itself to Eco mode while I'm home for no reason, every day. This is a HUGE PROBLEM Edit 2: Thermostat doesn't always follow schedule. Some days have to manually adjust even though it's scheduled.
The Nest Thermostat used to be great. It no longer works how it's advertised to work. The most basic functionality (shuts heating/cooling off when you're away from home) is gone with the new updates. Mine now chugs along pumping out hot and cold air while no one is home. I may as well have kept my old cheap thermostat.
Apps tells me it's been awhile since it heard from my phone for auto away/home. Uninstall and reinstalled on the same device and no help. Locations services are on and the app has proper permissions enabled to access location. THIS FEATURE SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK. Other wise it's good.
Not sure why, but since the android 7 update the home and away feature does not work.. I continue to get message about sound and movement even though I'm home and the camera should be off.. You look in this app and it says your away even though your not. Works so inconsistently now it nothing but annoying.. What good is a cam if it's on and off at the wrong times.
Software is really holding the hardware back. To many bugs and just generally slow and not very smooth. Still waiting on bug fixes. Very frustrating when your introducing new features and changing the way the app looks without optimizing performance or fixing many of the bugs. Very disappointing from such a large company with so much resources at its disposal.
The app itself is great. Subscription for Nest Aware is Very Expensive. It's ok for 1 camera but when you add more cameras it looses touch with reality. A more realistic package offer for Nest Aware will earn them the remaining 2 stars.
