    Great Product with iOS

    • Written by from Austin

    Works perfect with the iPhone, iPad or any iOS. I like that you can control the device while you are away. It has more features then I care to use but play around with it, you can definitely save money.

    This is a huge improvement over all traditional or programmable thermostats. The ability to remotely access and command it is reason enough to own one or more, if you have multiple zones, as you can command or manage them from a single location, even after you've gone to bed. It's ability to sense when you have left the premises means you'll never again heat or cool an empty house because you forgot to set it before leaving. You'll get useful reports of your most recent 10 days of energy use, and will wish it was at least a full month to compare with your utility bill. It's relatively simple to install and set up initially, but has enough depth of options to satisfy your "control freak" tendencies. When auxiliary heat is needed, it isn't smart enough to keep the heat pump running continuously, but is otherwise pretty with it. Since it is online and can be continuously updated with new software, it should get even better with time.

    HAL 9000

    • Written by from Moreno Valley

    HAL 9000 is what I named my Nest. This is one of the coolest things that I have ever bought. My old thermostat would always turn off and on at different times, yet it was not broken. When I installed it—the old unit—I set up a schedule. Yet 2 years later it seemed like it either never went by the schedule or just ignored it all together. Like many people, my energy savings went out of the door. I replaced it with the Nest—read Hal 9000—this thing is unbelievable! First off, they have thought of everything. The install, they have plates that cover up your old thermostat's hole... they include a screwdriver to disconnect the leads/wires from the old setup... they even have a leveler with the green fluid and bubble built into the unit so you know it is level. After the install be prepared to be amazed. This thing has wifi, learns your habits, you can operate from your phone or computer—it even senses when you are standing infront of it! This things is like strapping an iPhone/ipod/ipad to your heating and cooling system. Hal 9000- I mean the Nest is amazing! The only problem that I am having is explaining to my friends that they need to come over to my house to check out my killer thermostat. They think its weird until they see it, and then they want one. Only thing left to do now is teach it to open the pod bay doors, and then tell it to refuse to open them after I ask.

    Excellent

    • Written by from Innisfil

    I have had this for over three months now, and I am truly amazed with it.
    I like the fact that if I go away for a few days, I don't have to worry about setting up a new schedule, it knows I am away and takes care of everything.

    On my way home form a weekend of fishing, I can turn on the air conditioning before I get home, so the house is cool by the time I get there.

    I really like not having to switch the thermostat from heat to cool, it just knows what to do.

    A fantastic device. I think it is overpriced, but I still bought one and I am very happy with it.

    Works as advertised... only better!

    • Written by from Tampa

    We've been using our Nest for 4 months. It's completely learned our habits. It knows that in the morning it needs to cool down to compensate for my hair dryer, that Sunday mornings no one is home and it turns completely off. It knows our every move every day of the week and adjusts for it. Already seeing significant savings in our electric bill.

    We had ours professionally installed and I could tell it was something we would not have been able to do. However, our installer had no idea how to set it up on our home network or connect to our wifi, but that part was a real breeze.

    My husband and I both love being able to control it from our computers, iPad, or iPhones no matter where we are.

    Only tip is to really give it a work out in the first two weeks so that it completely learns you patterns. You have to pay attention to your comfort all day long and tweak it all the time so it learns what you will be wanting it to do for you. The more you do, the more automatic it will make the adjustments in the future.

    Excellent Product & Very Easy to Install !!!

    • Written by from Pointe-Claire

    I love the Nest Learning Thermostat. It worked exactly as advertised and was very easy to install. They even provide you the tools to do the work ! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the limited reports you can get. It would be nice to be able to get fancy reports and graph. Other than that, works perfectly and the auto-learn features works great. It's nice to be able to remote control the unit from anywhere ! Love it ! Love it ! Love it !

    I have the Nest Thermostat and five of the 120v Nest Protects installed in my three story townhome. All installed easily and have been working flawlessly. I really like the quality of these products, which make their competitors feel cheap by comparison. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend both the Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect.

    Unstable

    • Written by from Uxbridge

    I normally don't write reviews but this product is so unstable it desires one. After owning my device now for over a year, I can tell you that my device is rarely online, Nest customer support is not helpful and my hydro/heating bills have actually increased from using this product.

    Works well when it does not go offline!

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    The Nest works well except that it continues to go offline and then you are unable to control it remotely! This is rather annoying and Nest has done nothing to resolve this problem although there is an enitre thread about this on the Nest forum therefore I am not the only person experiencing this problem,

    Not sure why all the bad reviews, so far this thing is amazing and works!

    • Written by from Dedham

    I researched this and other smart thermostats for about a year and read review after review after review. Like you reading this now I was hesitant and heard the horror stories of pipes freezing and this thing being buggy. However I decided after all the mixed reviews to take the plunge. I live in a single family home in New England with one thermostat for the entire home and this took exactly 10 minutes to install. It fit nicely into the area that held my older digital thermostat and I added the base plate and connect the two wires and presto this thing was up and running. Now so far it is October and the weather is not freezing cold yet and this thing is trying to learn my habits etc, however I set up a schedule anyway but not sure I will need it. The ease of use for this device was unreal and I can see why so many people like it. It even looks awesome on the wall and I processed a $100 credit from the electric company as a rebate which helped to offset the cost.

    What I do like so far is the iPhone app and the website which make this so easy to use and set up anyone could do it. Even the most complicated systems seem like they would be a snap. I will keep a watch on this as the weather gets colder to see how it works and hopefully I have no issues. I would recommend this at this point to anyone since digital thermostats are a thing of the past and I cannot see Honeywell catching up to this anytime soon. Take the plunge, go buy one! I may get the Nest protect but so far that looks full of bugs.

    Great thermostat!

    • Written by from Hickory Hills

    After months of struggling with a thermostat that I never seemed to understand, the second generation Nest Learning Thermostat was born, and I bought it!

    I love this thermostat. I've had it for about 6 months now and have no complaints. Install was super easy, connecting was easy too. I love being able to check the temperature from my phone at all times and being able to warm up the house if my day ends early for some reason.

    Auto away is great. Sometimes when I make a quick stop at home I find myself hiding from the thermostat so that it doesn't see me and turn on. (Frequent on and off of HVAC equipment is bad)

    I have had no power issues or errors appear on the nest. I have had few network issues but those fell on the cable company (my laptop and smart tv wouldn't connect either)

    The bottom line is I just wanted a thermostat that I knew how to use so that I would actually use it. I love my Nest.

    Amazing is an understatement

    • Written by from Fresno

    Sooo I bought two of these jewels for my home. Setup was a snap. I had them both working in less time than it took for the software to update. The energy reporting day over day is really helpful. The remote access is great fun. We were out of town for the weekend. We set the temp to 80 and cut the usage for one unit to 0 hours compared to 6 hours and the other to about 6 hours instead of 11 hours (two story house). When we left for home we set them back to 77 and when we walked in the door the entire house was cool and comfortable. I am very anxious to see what kind of energy savings we will enjoy now that we can really monitor our usage. Only criticism, is I wish the daily energy usage could also be viewed real time every six hours day over day.

    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!

    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.
