Installation E260 Error Solved
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
I have a plain vanilla Honeywell thermostat and got E260 error upon first installation try. My mistake was to connect RC wire to C at Nest base plate. RC wire from Honeywell thermostat should be connected to R at Nest. Nest installation went well after the correction and luckily no fuse is blown at the furnace.
Pretty cool device! I’m glad I got this model and not the most expensive one. This does the job. I can change my temperature from my phone even in the middle of the night without getting out of bed or from the car on the way home from work! It’s easy set up and easy use! I love the graphs it shows of how much energy I used and how much I saved. Very reliable!

Nest Thermostat ReviewSwapping out your old thermostat for a smart one is one of the easiest ways to upgrade your home and make your life easier, but research indicates that less than 15 percent of houses have one. With its latest model, Nest is addressing the main
A:AnswerThe Nest Thermostat (2020) comes with a 6 cm color LCD with 240x320 resolution, and mirrored glass finish. It provides more wiring terminals (10) that work with most 24V heating and cooling systems, including furnaces, air conditioners, boilers, and heat pumps with either forced air or radiant delivery. On the other hand, the Nest Thermostat E comes with polycarbonate, ceramic-feel finished ring with a frosted display that works with fewer (86%) 24V heating and cooling systems.
While both Nest thermostat models work with most two-stage heating and two-stage cooling systems, we recommend checking the Compatibility Checker on our Google Nest support site to verify if your system is compatible. You can also take a look at the following support article for the complete technical specifications of the Nest thermostats: https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/9230098
A:AnswerYou can still use the Nest Thermostat to control your system even without Wi-Fi. However, you won't be able to utilize its other features such as remotely controlling the thermostat using the Home app. You can check this link to learn more about Nest Thermostat: https://support.google.com/googlenest/answer/10125150
A:AnswerNo. You can only use the Google Home app for the new Nest Thermostat (2020). It's the first thermostat setup that is completed entirely on the Google Home app. Here's some helpful links you might want to check out:

Typically, smart thermostats don’t require a common (C) wire, but every system is different. Without a common wire, your Nest thermostat will charge itself through power sharing using your existing heating and cooling wires. However, when your heating and cooling wires are not able to deliver the needed power for your Nest thermostat, you may need to connect a common or C wire since it helps deliver enough consistent power to your thermostat.
When there’s a C wire, it becomes the thermostat’s go-to for power backup when power sharing doesn’t work. This can also conserve battery life since the batteries will likely only be in use when there’s a power loss to the thermostat.
Also, Nest Thermostat (2020) has a backup battery. For systems that are not using a C wire, the average battery life is three to six months. However, depending on the Wi-Fi activity on the thermostat, it may be possible to extend or reduce the battery life.
