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.

Nest Secure alarm system

- Receive a Remind Me alert if you leave home and forget to set the alarm.

It's a very convenient app that you can use on your phone. And it helps you adjust temperatures while you are away and before your arrive home. You can use it on your Google home app as well. It did glitch one time and put a very high heat number for a whole week straight and I was wondering why It kept changing to 75° but I guess it was fixed, because it's not doing it anymore.

Hello there, I'm writing to bring to your attention an issue I've been experiencing with your application. It used to function very well, but recently (2023) I've noticed that it's not working properly. Specifically, whenever the bell rings, the screen goes black and only shows the video after the person has moved away. The same issue occurs when I'm engaged in a conversation with someone. I am unable to engage with the house-to-house solicitors, which defeats the purpose of having it.

Hey there, we're sorry to hear about the trouble. You could try rebooting your Nest Camera devices including your mobile phone and router to refresh their connection. Also, reinstalling your Nest app can help too. For more assistance, reach out to us through chat, phone or social support here: https://goo.gle/3ie15Ae.

the temperature schedule feature is convoluted and borders on dangerous. You wake up on a winter day and it's 64 on the thermostat, but in colder rooms it's under 60. If you turn off auto-schedule, it's still very hard to set a schedule manually. I'm fine but the elderly and immuno-compromised could be a bit more likely to get sick. The feature is a great idea since it does lower utility bills and wastefulness, but it's horribly implemented. Basic features like humidity gauge etc work fine
