Works well when turning on heating remotely when I return from a trip and it's great to be able to set so many different temperatures in one day. However it struggles with figuring out if I'm at home or away and I regularly find it turned on for an entire weekend when no one is home. Would be good to have a widget on my home screen to be able to see if it's currently set to away or home and to be able to change it with a single click on the widget.
The app is ok. Buttons don't work well on galaxy s8 in portrait mode. Need to push the buttons a couple of times for them to react. When phone is in landscape mode it works much better. My main issue is the home/away assist. Doesn't seem to work brilliantly using phone location. I have had to switch this setting on and off for it to update my location as being home. Phone has had my location correct when using Google maps and good data (LTE) connection. What I don't understand is why nest don't use the WiFi network as well as gps to see if your home or not. I.e. when the phone connects to same WiFi it sets you as home. I know this doesn't help detecting if you are getting close to home to start warming up; but my experience with this is that it shows both me and my wife as away when we are home anyway.. please sort this out nest!
Please fix the 15 seconds forward or backward button. It hardly works and sends your video all over the place. When I try to go 15 sec forward it jumps back to the last time it saw someone. Also you can't zoom in portrait mode. I have 3 of these cameras and spend alot of money on subscriptions. Would like if the app was updated.
I really want more granular control of the permissions for family Accounts. I want my Nest Thermostat to know when my teenagers are at home via Home/Away Assist but I don't want them to be able to invite or remove other people to Nest home or any of the other permissions for that matter. Also, I only want them to be able to control Nest products, not add or remove them.
The nest camera app used to work well. It has been getting steadily worse and is now virtually unusable. The app freezes anytime I try to view footage from the camera, so frustrating! Please undo whatever you did to "improve" the app!
have a schedule set every day, turn on heat at 3.30. and every day it is ignored, and the nest remains in eco mode. all I want is to come home to a warm house. too much to ask from this worthless dev team. what an absolutely dumb device. it also doesn't know by phone in vicinity that you're home, as is mentioned in the touting of how smart this pos is.
