Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by htrenhs1 Easy to use and saves you bucks
The Nest was one of the first things we bought with the new house.
Literally took 15 minutes to install and be up and running with internet service connected. The first couple of days are a little wonky as you teach it your schedule, but it learns it and gives you the times on the app. The app is best seen on an ipad so you can read all the schedule programming at once.
We are out the door by 7am, back home at 6 or 8pm and in bed by 11pm. The Nest knows it and sets the temperature to your liking. Even when you come home unexpected, just walking by the thermostat will kick it on as it senses that you are home.
I'm not kidding when I say my electric bill is about $65/month October thru March and the highest it's ever been is $135. That's crazy talk for living in Florida where it's routinely 85 degrees outside.
Get the unit, buy one for your mother in law, or sister or whatever. They really work and they do save you money.
It's also pretty to look at.

I bought this about two weeks ago and it continually sets it's own "Web Controlled Temperature" at about 3:00 a.m. each night. I have spent a significant amount of phone time with Nest customer service with no resolution. Unit will be returned to Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dende Easy to setup, use, and lowers your energy bill
The Nest thermostat was very simple to install and only took 15 to 20 minutes to replace the old thermostat. I did have an issue with my gas furnace not properly turning on, but after contacting Nest support, they found the issue (a missing common wire) and reimbursed me for the cost of installation. Using the Nest daily has been a welcome change to setting up daily programs on my old thermostat. Most days I turn the dial until I see the energy saving leaf on the screen and the Nest learns what temperatures I like the house at. Also, being able to adjust the temperature via the webapp and internet browser is a nice addition. I would recommend the Nest to anyone who needs a new thermostat and wants something easy to use and great for lowering their energy bill.

This is a must have product for the modern world. They are pricey but the payoff is quickly realized when you see the ease of accessibility whether you manually adjust the iPod inspired click wheel, or you use the easy nest app. The learning feature is the best money and energy saving feature. Within a week it learned that between 5-6:30 AM we liked the upstairs to be 68 degrees, while at 7:30-8:30 we didn't use the upstairs but the downstairs warmed up. It was even giving me alerts and updates to replace my filters as the system was suffocating..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Black Cat Little to no control over energy saving
Heat pump balance (point at which expensive auxiliary heat is called for) is fixed at about 2 degF.. Very tight temp swing (less than 1 degF.). No lockout adjustment. Very poor documentation on internet as well as poor support from call center. This unit is only suitable for highly efficient homes where heating costs are not a large concern.
I will be purchasing a NEST 3 thermostat where there is a choice between max savings and max comfort. From my recent electric bill, I could have paid the difference in cost within one heating season.

A great piece of electronics, for sure - one that monitors your patters to make sure your heatng and cooling is as energy efficient as possible. The bonus - controlling the thermostat from your phone, a big plus when your bed is upstairs and the thermostat is downstairs!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by got2bhappi Best purchase ever!!!
OMG...I can't say enough about this product! We absolutely love it. With our old thermostat our heat was coming on several times a night. Since we had had this one we can see a history of how many minutes and what days it came on it at all. My husband is almost blind and couldn't see the last thermostat to see what it was turned to, this one has a large blue display with a motion sensor so it comes on when you approach it . You can control it with your phone while at home or away from home. It has a memory where it will remember the times you want the heat on in the morning or evenings. I installed this myself with no help from my husband. It was pretty easy, you take a picture of your wiring and send it to the company and they will tell you if your wiring is compatible and what wires go to what wires.
BEST PRODUCT EVER!!

Loved my Nest so I bought it during the rebate period for my daughter. Somehow my rebate never came and was told they never received it. NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT...
