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 Secure alarm system

Lately the app keeps saying that the thermostat is offline, so basically I have no longer been able to control the thermostat from the phone lately. It is extremely annoying because the thermostat runs on schedule which I often change due to the season change. I did the troubleshooting a couple of times, the app is updated, there's nothing wrong with the thermostat, the router has not moved an inch further away from the thermostat compared to where it's always been. So, it is definitely the app.

The app is easy to install and navigate. Notifications are numerous since we are using it to monitor a place we have in the mountains. Given the alternative of not having any notifications I will take too many notifications over none. The biggest drawback is trying to rewind a notification to review a captured image. It does not always work. Most times I just give up out of frustration.

I've used Nest since 2019, coming up on 3 years. They've been very helpful (customer service) with all my issues, in spite of the "Google take over" (that slows down customer service exceedingly.) I appreciate the convenience of the app and so far have not had issues using it. The suggestions about the thermostat settings, I agree with...if I want to set or clear an entire week schedule, I have to do it with each day/each setting. It's a little tedious. Could use better features there.
