Great Money Saver
We have 4 units in the house. At the rate we are going we will pay for them in the first year. The app works great and provides a nice interface for working with the thermostat.

Can't switch systems after update.
After the last upgrade, I'm no longer able to switch from heat to air from the app. This functionality used to exist in an earlier version.

It disconnects and useless remotely
I bought this for a second home and was going to put in first home also. Although the gadget looks intuitive, the features are useless after the Internet is interrupted for any reason, as in down for two mins and internet goes back up, the thermo is down and will not reconnect/ping internet to reconnect automatically. So once away from home, you need to physically go back home to reset on the main unit before remote access is possible again. Huh? So if your on vacation or second home, or need to adjust while away during the day, you need to travel hours back to home to take advantage of remote capabilities? I contacted support and the answer is they can't reconnect except to physically reset on thermostat. I consider this false advertising for second home or remote access when it is more inoperable than useful. It assumes Internet does not get interrupted...really? Who was in denial about this when they designed? They won't even say that it's going to be added to feature releases/updates so I just bought a dud.

Great appliance, maturing
I've watched the development of the Nest since its inception and waited to the second generation to purchase one. I'm pleased with the device and like the remote access via iPhone and iPad. Much easier to program on the iOS devices than he device itself. I'd really like to see the actual measured temperature plotted over time in the energy usage area, and the ability to add additional Nest units acting as sensors for temperature and humidity. Great device, worth the money so far.

Unit disconnects often
On the surface it's a good product, but has major flaws. The battery dies without any notice and then the unit is completely useless. As others mentioned, support blames users even though it started happening after one if their updates. It's all fun and games until pipes freeze in the basement because the unit will just turn off. Horrible oversight.
