    Awesome Learning Thermostat

    Posted
    Motownskater

    This Thermostat was the best purchase I have every made, not only does it learn what temperature you like it in your house over time, but the automatic home and away feature is a great money saver. Every month you get an email letting you know how much energy you have used and how you did against other "nesters" in your area. All and all its great tool for your home, lets you see how much energy you have used each month, learns what you like and allows you to control your thermostat from your smart phone.

    Easy to install. It's also great to works excellent can connect to Alexa and have her change settings. Have the option to put app on your phone, will you leave the house and forget the air-conditioner is still on. You can quickly change it from your phone. I highly recommend to everyone who has an air conditioner

    I easily upgraded to the Nest, installing it in accord with online video instructions. They made it simple. It has operated just as promised. I greatly appreciate being able to access it from my iPhone, whether at home or out and about. We are saving energy (and money) thanks to the ease of controls and remote access of this device - and it looks great!

    This thermostat replaces a ten year old product that was cumbersome to program and not particularly flexible in its settings. The Nest was easy to swap in and connect to with the nest app. It also connects to Alexa. It offers so much more than I had realized when I purchased it. I like that it uses cell phones to determine if you are gone and adjusts heating temp for an unoccupied home. It can be controlled from the app and shows you the status of heating or cooling wherever you are. If you have been away for days and the house has gotten cold you can begin heating remotely so you return to a warm house. Of course it works for cooling too, providing the same energy saving benefit.

    Installed it myself but some of the connections were incorrect. Call support staff service was excellent and walked me through the couple of connections that needed to be changed. Love the ability to control via mobile phone and the away from home settings feature. Looking forward to energy savings with nest!!

    I've wanted a Nest for years now, but finally own my own home to put it in. Having never installed a thermostat before, I did exactly what you shouldn't do...I disconnected all of the wires before noting their location on the old thermostat. In spite of this critical error, using the Nest instructions, the basic configuration seemed consistent with my wiring, and I connected everything, put on the faceplace and fired it up. The Nest walks you through all of the steps you need to be more efficient. It notes weather patterns in your area, it senses the type of system you have, it configures home and away times. It turns out that I had wired my system for a heat pump, something I do not have. It noticed this right away, and after one more switch-off of the breaker, I had all of the wires in the right place. Since having the Nest, I'ven'ticed that the home temperature is very consistent. The Airwave (cooling function shutoff) feature is very effective and the house is always within our specifications. I've only turned the dial on the Nest once in the past week since it was installed. And of course, I changed the temperature up and down on my mobile phone, just for fun. We haven't gotten into heat season yet, but I've a feeling with the up and down temperatures here in Colorado, that the nest is really going to help. No more switching back and forth from hot to cool throughout the day. Just set it, and let the temperature determine the function. Oh, and it looks just as awesome as I predicted it would on the wall. We used the mounting plate to cover up the previous thermostat holes. I've seen others at friends houses that did not have such plates (Gen 2), and the holes, no matter how well you patch, were still obvious.

    I love this product. Of all my smart devices, this has to be my favorite. I can control the temperature from my phone which makes it really easy. I also like how I can set up a schedule so that I don't heat or cool my house when no one is home. The technology will keep tabs of when people are home and when they are away and will adjust the temperature as needed. Have been able to save money with this energy efficient product.

    We are loving our new thermostat. Installed quickly and easily. It's easy to program via the app in our phone and also "learns" our routine if we make adjustments. I like that I can change the temperature remotely from my phone and through my Echo. Definitely worth the money as I think it will be saving us money in the long run by reducing our energy use.

    Works amazingly, very smart and definitely worth the money. Even though you can program a base temperature and a create a schedule, the feature we love the most is the ability to adjust the temp from our phones because the home we just purchased has not 1, but 3 thermostats (one on each floor). We are constantly moving round/going to bed at different times, so its hard to 'create a schedule' for when we'll be on different floors. So it's been a huge help to have a 'base temp' and then adjust if when we know we'll be in a section of the house. The other thing I love is that Nest Thermostat has a safety protocol in it, where if the house falls below a certain temperature (40 Degrees) the heat will kick on automatically, even if you have the thermostat set to "Off". I live in Massachusetts where during the spring and fall the temperature fluctuates greatly, could be 70 during the day, but 30's at night. Its a good piece of mind that if the temp changes when we are not home, the heat will kick on before the pipes freeze.

    This not only allows me to control temperature without getting up (by using phone/tablet app or Google Assistant through various devices) - but it saves me money by raising temp when I'm not home. I can't live without a Nest thermostat anymore.

    I love nest and I love this product specifically! I used to keep the temperature at the same temperature no matter if I was away or at home because I didn't want to come home to an apartment that was not at the temperature I like. Now I can change the temperature when I leave and then set it back to what I like on my way home from my phone so I can save money and still always come home to an apartment at just the temperature I like!
