Battery / Connectivity Issues?
Like other reviewers, I love my NEST! But since the last update, I've had connectivity issues and now my battery is reading low, prompting me to suspect it's draining itself trying to find or hold the network connection. Is this coincidence or are others seeing similar problems? My NEST unit has run flawlessly for 10 months, and now this. Hoping for answers.

This app kind of let's the amazing thermostat down. Lack of precise control and lack of info on the main screen. Tell me the fan status the humidity status let me adjust the temp with either simple arrows or better let me scroll my finger around the wheel Like on the device. Seriously. This is an amazing piece of hardware. I've been a tech for 13 years. Now time to hire a good programmer for the app. Update. Since I have both heat and ac turned on two arrows would t work. I've found simple single tapping where I want either needle to go is perfect. Upgraded to four stars cause of the lack of home screen info.

You will not see the new app controls until your Nest has received the update.

No Fan control!
Love my Nest. Anyone reading this review don't hesitate to buy one. Otherwise I'm not sure what feed back these fine folks at Best are reading. Still no portrait control. I would still like to see Actual temp instead of my set temp. No fan controller on app Please bring back arrows

Great Thermostat!
This system makes managing my household climate fun and easy. The technician who installed my new two-cycle a/c had never heard of the "Nest," claiming that such technology is a waste of money. So, I ordered one myself But after installing the thermostat, we found the compressor wouldn't kick on. While the technician tried to troubleshot the compressor, I used my iPhone app to scan the thermostat wiring. When I showed him the wiring schematic, his eyes widened... a thermostat wire had not made contact. He reinserted the wire into the contact clip, and all was well. As we reviewed the capabilities of the thermostat, his attitude went from dismissive to enthusiastic. Not only does he plan to install a Nest in his own home, he also agreed to reduce my bill by the full amount I had paid for my thermostat. I do have two concerns, however. First, the most recent software update removed the up/down arrows from the thermostat "dial." this makes no sense, and should be fixed. Second, I find that the Internet connection between my thermostat and the app to be unreliable. My other apps/devices don't experience this, so I believe it may be a problem with the Nest software. All things considered, I am very happy with my new Nest.
