    Awesome Thermostat!

    • Written by from Conshohocken

    Works great. iPhone 4S app is amazing. Very intuitive. Looks great. "Away" feature allows you to use the A/C or heating less and save $$$. Really nice to be able to go away on vacation and turn it on remotely before you get home.

    And great customer service. I thought I had a hardware issue that likely was software related but support helped me out over a couple phone calls. Even sent me replacement parts and a charging cable all free of charge. Highly recommend.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Austin

    I never thought a thermostat could upgrade a room. I know my old white one that was stuck on 74 degrees wasn't very pretty. My new lovely Nest thermostat is gorgeous! And it almost feels like my AC works better now. This is one of the coolest gadgets I have ever bought. I think I might like it more than my iPad or iPhone....well, at least I equally love them all.

    Awesome Product

    Easy to install, took 20 minutes, and over the last 5 months saved us about 20% in our electric bill. This is the best consumer product I have purchased in many years.

    Love It!

    • Written by from Bethesda

    I've had the nest for a little over a month. I have yet to see another power bill to compare savings, but intuitively, I know I have saved money.

    The installation is easy. Just take a picture of your current thermostat's wiring, use the Nest website to determine if your system is compatible, and then its as simple as taking the old unit off and reconnecting the new one with maybe a few holes needing to be drilled. Programming the unit was relatively easy too. Once I manually entered the wifi password, just about everything else I could do from my laptop.

    Once you set up the system, it does learn your habits, but it also has settings to keep various temperatures during the day and an away feature that can be set. The way I see it, you have redundant options to keep your house comfortable without wasting power.

    One feature I love is the iPhone app. I can monitor the house temperature throughout the day. I often use this feature when I am leaving work to ensure that the house is comfortable by the time I arrive home.

    Simple to install, works flawlessly

    • Written by from Media

    Even the packaging on this product was very well done. Installed in under 15 minutes. I used the back plate to prevent patching and painting the area behind my previous programmable thermostat. The setup is elegant. I have a forced air system with gas for heat, and so far I have only used the A/C portion. I can control the thermostat from my iPhone, iPad, computer or old school - right on the thermostat. The quality is exceptional and certainly justifies a higher cost. Not sure $250 is the magic number but if you look at it from a cost savings perspective, it will likely pay for itself eventually, but not quickly. I also own Philips Hue lighting and the iOS software for the Nest is significantly better. I did not have to call technical support so I can't really comment there. Easy to adjust whether you are in the house or on the go. Obvious Apple design influence. Bottom line: looks great, works as advertised, software is well designed, easy to install, and great to be able to control remotely. I have not used it long enough to get a sense of the self learning benefits, but tracking is easy with the software provided.

    This product is simply amazing. It doesn't exactly what it advertises.. You can control you thermostat from anywhere and it was very easy to install. Installation took less that 20 mins.. Great buy. You never have to go your thermostat again to change the temperature.

    Nest Gen. 2

    • Written by from El Dorado Hills

    I recently installed 3 of these and love the simplicity and ease of use. The design is very cool- not a surprise since this company CEO is Tony Fadell - the man who was largely responsible for the original iPod design. Took a little work to connect properly as 2 of my locations needed a common wire which I had to also connect at the HVAC control panel up in the attic. Easy to do but took an extra 15 minutes. Now that they are up and running they operate flawlessly. I love being able to control from my iPhone/iPad as my wife and I travel often and can easily control our HVAC system if we want to cool/heat our home before we return home.

    Can't hold comfortable setting

    • Written by from Bothell

    It looks good and the remote interface isn't bad but, but it allows the temperature to swing almost 2 degrees in either direction of the set temperature. This leaves you feeling too hot or too cold most of the time. It also make the set and forget ability of a programmable thermostat useless because you have to constantly adjust it. Going back to my ugly, no remote interface Honeywell.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Leesville

    If it wasn't for the lack of the logo, I'd swear this is an Apple product. It is elegant, thoughtful, and superbly constructed with sturdy materials. The box even has that "new Mac smell," and if you own a Mac, you know what I'm talking about! I've only had it for a week, but so far I'm very impressed. We'll be purchasing another one for our other rooms. The "Father of the iPod" has gone on to do great things!

    Gorgeous design & impressively engineered. Buy it!

    • Written by from Nashua

    A beautiful, beautiful, piece that will turn heads and turn down your electric bill, this well thought out thermostat is an architectural element that will literally pay for itself over time. (And you can adjust the temp without getting out of bed!) Honestly, I would've bought it just for the design, but Nest did it right, and made it better than all of the rest for the number crunchers concerned with a return on their investment too.

    Best Thermostat you can buy

    • Written by from Spokane

    My wife pre-ordered me one of these when they first came out a couple of years back - and I love it. Nest has updated both the iOS software and the software running the unit itself many times with new features and enhancements and they've all worked perfectly. It's interesting to review the history it keeps and learn how often your furnace or AC kicks on in different weather conditions. Over the years, I've turned it into a game of how much I can save by either letting it work itself, or even for example actively cooling the house at night. When we are away on vacation, it's even piece of mind to know that nobody came into your house (and that it's still standing!). I actively turn it on when I'm an hour or so away from home so that the house is up to temperature when we get home. I bet that becomes a feature with future software updates. No doubt the most used iOS App on my iPhone. Check them out at Lowes if you're unsure - but you won't regret buying this thing!

    Does it all

    It took me 10-15 min to set it up. Works great and I like the look of the device. I just got it so I am still experimenting with it but its got lots of options. I'm looking forward to playing with it and enjoying the benefits.

    One of the most incredible products EVER!!!

    • Written by from Memphis

    I received two nest thermostats for Christmas and they are incredible devices. Simple to install, easy to configure, and has saved us $$$. After the first couple of weeks learning our active household schedule we haven't touched the thermostat = it just works!!! The clean simple aesthetics look amazing in the house and everyone that walks in wants to know everything about them.

    Buy these, you will not regret it one moment...
