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

- Arm and disarm your home remotely from the app.
- Receive a Remind Me alert if you leave home and forget to set the alarm.

Creating a schedule is utter garbage. It can only be done on a phone, and you have to use a slider which is way too finicky. Furthermore, there is a built in minimal temperature range of about 2.5 degrees, which when combined with the slider becomes almost impossible to get a setting to read 70-72 degrees. It also allows the temperature to reach 1 degree above whatever you have it set for before kicking on. It would be nice if they allowed you to set the exact times to run off each sensor.

Have not had any issues...works when I need it and was simple to set up. Update: Camera's stop working constantly. When trying to bring up your cameras on a mobile device 60% of the time they do not work. Just show a black screen. Wifi is set up correctly at home and the router is updated. Setting up voice control for more than one person has more issues than I have space to type. Google cook book never works and now 80% of the time the display never shows correct results for questions asked.

Easy to: find the app, install, link to the thermostat, and set up in a straightforward as well. If you link it to your WiFi connection for it to function as designed, but if you do not have an internet connection, it will work fine without one as well. It has more functionality and ease of use when connected, but that doesn't mean it's difficult without an internet connection, just a few less functions available. Usable with most any type of heating furnace with temperature control.
