I like new technology, thermostat, the app, and the monthly energy report from Nest are excellent! Rebates from Com Ed a and NICOR are appreciated:-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valleylark Great thermostat
Easy to install myself. Love wide screen, larger than the 2nd generation nest. Great interfacing with the easy to use mobile app to control your house temps from anywhere!

I was in need of a new thermostat for years. My coworker told me about The Nest and I was hooked. Went to Home Depot at lunch that day and installed it myself that evening. Very user friendly.

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 really love the nest. i think you are asking me to review this and it is good. i was just frustrated because it was a previously sold item. i had to reset and remove old address from the NEST during install. it was a problem because we had no idea why it would not work. simply put it was referring to old settings. i want new when i buy new. i could not return because i wired everything and was at a point of no return.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Notsodumbuser Good product
Easy transaction within HomeDepot web site. Installed easily and it is up and working for few works now. Need to install one more in my home to manage two different units. There are no easy reference docs on how to manage two Nests within the same house, managing two different zones and units. I expect them to coordinate their activities for optimal use of the equipments. Need to investigate further

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chas Works as advertised
Fairly easy to install, although I have a split system and had to run the "C" wire from the cooling side in order for the thermostat to be powered. And I had to jumpstart the thermostat by plugging it into a USB charger for a few minutes. After the initial install I was thinking it was DOA. I rechecked all wiring and eventually tried plugging the unit into a USB charger to verify that it was a good unit. I then plugged it back into the wall and it worked as intended. Fortunately Nest was running a special and with the rebate from my utility supplier I was able to get the price down to a reasonable level. There are other WiFi thermostats for less money. One added benefit I wasn't expecting - I placed this unit in the bedroom and the thermostat will light up for a short duration if someone gets up at night and walks past it. It's not a bright light so it basically doubles as night light.

The Nest Third Generation will be a breeze to install in a newer house (ours was built in 1967), but even so, the first thing you should do is go to the website (url in the pkg) and check it out. We had one of their recommended/certified installers come do this for us because in our older home we needed an extra wire. But it has worked seamlessly since installation over two weeks ago. We are energy conscious and this is something that we should have done long ago. Because we can now track energy daily through the app, we can see what a difference it makes to run the fans rather than the AC, etc. A note to those who have an old-fashioned larger thermostat: the package includes a cover plate for that larger hole, and it looks as if it were intended to be there all along.
