The Nest Learning Thermostat makes saving energy simple with control over Wi-Fi from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. Nest also remembers what temperatures you like and turns itself down when you’re away.
Nest creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you've made. All you have to do is get comfortable. It's so simple that 95% of Nests have schedules.
Nest automatically turns itself to an energy-saving temperature when you're away, so you don't waste energy heating or cooling an empty house.
Connect your Nest thermostat to Wi-Fi, download the free Nest Mobile app, and change the temperature from anywhere.
Energy History and Energy Report
See when the heat or AC was on and what affected your energy use. Then check your monthly Energy Report to understand how your energy use changes month-to-month and how you can save more.
Nest will show you when you're choosing a temperature that'll help you save. Look for the Leaf every time you turn the ring.
Lower your AC bill in the summer with Airwave, which cuts AC runtime automatically when humidity isn't too high—ensuring that you stay cool.
System Match turns on custom features depending on what heating or cooling system you have. It's perfect for high-efficiency radiant and heat pumps or for forced air systems.
If you’re comfortable changing a light fixture, you can install Nest. Three out of four people install Nest themselves in 30 minutes or less. A Nest Certified Professional can also help you install—visit Nest's website at nest.com to learn more.

Outstanding product, great practical use of today's technology.

Helps save energy automatically by adjusting temp settings to your impute, either manually or automatically when you are home. It learns your comfortable/preferred temp settings rather than having to program it.
And you can completely control it (temp settings, heat or cool on and off, etc) from your iPhone or iPad.
Although not cheap, I bought 2 first generation units for our new house (one for up stairs, one for down stairs) and have been very impressed with easy of operation. I sit in bed at night and adjust either thermostat using my iPhone or iPad (or sit in a hotel room miles away) and see the outside temp and adjust the thermostat if it has not already learned my preferences. …

Great product, but don't upgrade yet, especially if you live in the South

The first is the way it p Have had my nest almost a year. Installed it the end of last summer. Love all its features except 2:
The first is the way it plugs into the wall. It is very easy for family members to knock it off the wall while trying to set it. It is better set from your iPhone. This would not be an issue if people were not playing with it so much do to the main issue in the next paragraph.
The main issue with the Nest is the lack of ability to control humidity settings. My old thermostat allowed this. I have discovered that living in the South, this is a very important feature for comfort.
When the nest turns on to cool the house, the humid cold air is annoyingly uncomfortable. Turning up the ambient room temperature to correct this results in a room that feels to warm after the AC stops blowing. So either you feel a little too cool when the AC is blowing, or a little too warm when it's not. This is not extreme, but just enough to be annoying if you spend time in your house. I don't notice it when I return form work and go to bed, but I do notice it on weekends and days off when I spend time in the house this summer.
I am well past the learning curve for a new device, and have not solved this, but I do see where the Nest measures the humidity. So it should be possible for the company to allow us to control it.
Since a basic wired thermostat has a humidity control feature, I am surprised that Nest does not. If I was not so lazy, I would re install my old thermostat. If Nest solves this problem, I will upgrade. …

Not worth the money
First - Nest lacks the most basic of thermostat functions: Hold Temp. Enthusiasts will tell you the Nest features eliminate the n First - Nest lacks the most basic of thermostat functions: Hold Temp. Enthusiasts will tell you the Nest features eliminate the need for it, but Friday was a holiday and there was no way to tell the thing not to run the usual weekday program.
Second - Auto Schedule makes random unexpected changes. The ability to confirm those changes would be great. My thermostat decided that I didn't want the temp to drop to 70 degrees at 10 PM anymore and cleared that part of the program even though if I made that adjustment, I only did it once. So Auto Schedule is off.
Third - Auto Away overrides the schedule. So rather than having a comfortable temp in the house when I get home from work, like the program is set for, the thermostat goes to Away when I am at work and I have to interact with it to get it to run the program. What is the point of a schedule if the thermostat doesn't follow it? So Auto Away is off.
The novelty features of Nest don't really work. I'm pretty sure that the thermostat is not smarter than I am, but it thinks it is and does things it thinks I want. I shouldn't have to interact with my thermostat regularly to get it to do what I want it to, but that is what the Nest requires.
There are less expensive wifi connected thermostats that do what the Nest does. They don't have the fancy metal ring around them, but that is about all you are getting for the extra money. I wouldn't buy another one. …

Like Google, I bought them and now I'm stuck with them....
The NEST Thermostat and NEST Protect.... the truth.
I have owned both of these item since they came on the market. I thoug The NEST Thermostat and NEST Protect.... the truth.
I have owned both of these item since they came on the market. I thought they would be good to have to protect our home and allow us to communicate with the items and control our home while away. After owning both of these for some time now this is our experience.
We live in rural Ontario. We have an all electric home with 200 Amp service and a 15KV generator to supply power when the power goes out. Our ISP provided a Siemens Modem and behind it we have an Apple Extreme 801g/n router to provide wifi. We now also have a UPS to handle the wifi until the generator starts during a power failure. Even in a power failure our ISP provides Internet access.
The NEST Thermostat:
It was easy to install and worked right out of the box. It is easy to use in person and controls our electric heating just fine. It was only after a power failure we began to see the issues. The NEST does not like to reconnect to our wifi after a power failure. I have always had to wait until I return home, walk to The NEST and select “wifi” and press it. Then it connects. The NEST is only 3 meters from our wifi router and signal strength is reported to be “excellent” at 86% when tested. So signal is not the issue. To get around this I’ve installed a UPS so the wifi never drops. This has solved this issue it would appear at the moment. No battery issues so far. Other issues: It has no idea where we live. I had to trick it during setup as our location is not available. Occasionally it complains about setup issues that when checked don't exist. On occasion it will not light up when approached even though this feature is turned on. I have to poke it to get it to light up. All else appears OK. Do I trust it for an extended vacation in the winter: NOT ON YOUR LIFE.
The NEST Protect:
We purchased 2 of these when they hit the market. Installation was easy and they both worked out of the box. The issues with both of these units are the never-ending stream of false alarms, always when we are away. We rush home to find NOTHING.!! Even while writing this our bedroom NEST Protect went off telling us about smoke in the bedroom that isn't there. We’ve received Emails telling us our bedroom is full of smoke. When we arrive home our cat is sleeping on the bed so we can safely assume the alarm in the house did nothing. We’ve had alarms of power outage when there was none. We’ve had alarms of fire when there was none. THEY ARE A PAIN.
The NEST Support:
In a word: it’s non-existent. When you refer to the web site there is a “Contact Us” area but it only takes you to another page which lists HELP and The Community. In other words “You bought it and you’re stuck with it and we don’t want to talk to you to help you with your problems”. If you do leave comments in The Community someone will answer but it’s days later.
I would in no way recommend either of these products to anyone but I did buy them and yes I’m stuck with them. I may end up dumping them on eBay and going back to Honeywell products that actually do work. …

Can the nest run on a 230 AC circuit
- Asked by Joachim W from Duncan
- Jan 13, 2014
The Nest Thermostat cannot be wired directly to your heating system since it is using lower voltage The Nest Thermostat cannot be wired directly to your heating system since it is using lower voltage (12V vs. 230V) and would be irreparably damaged if connected that way. It uses a transformer to lower the voltage to a lower level.
In the US boilers also use a lower voltage and as a result of this Nest can be connected directly to provide boiler control. In the UK and Europe we use 120-240v boilers. For these types of boilers an additional piece of hardware is provided called the Heat Link. This connects to the boiler and turns it on and of at the Thermostats (or your) request.
Using Heat Link to control your boiler allows you to put the Thermostat where you’d like - it can be where you have an existing wired Thermostat installed or in a new place. So if you don’t have Thermostat wires in the wall or if the existing Thermostat was poorly placed, you can still install Nest in a good spot. …
