Solid thermostat UP^grade
Excellent standalone thermostat upgrade that is quick and easy to install. Simple direct input controls along with google home app control. (Side note it does not work with the nest app or additional nest sensors)

      Great product. It is very effective and easy to use. I only give it 4 stats because we bought 2 and the upstairs one keeps disconnecting from the home app. Which is very irritating to go upstairs to restart the device. Wifi is strong with a extender sitting right next to it. Other than that issue, I'd give it 5 stars

      Solid Nest Product (update available though)
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m a huge fan of Google Nest products and most of our smart home system is on their stack. I had the Nest Thermostat E at another home before installing the Gen2, and it was interesting to see the differences. Installation wise, the two products are nearly identical. As with other Nest products, it was easy to follow the instructions. We just unscrewed the old thermostat, snapped in the 5 coloured wires, screwed it back on and everything turned on. The battery started charging and Google directed us to the website to download the app to complete the rest of the setup. Compared to the E, this thermostat is about 10% larger and thicker. Instead of a frosted white surface it’s a mirror finish. The thermostat uses a touch screen instead of a dial. Some things are nicer for this, but I really liked the tactile click and turn of the E. Compared to Gen1, 2 is supposed to be smaller, and the newer version that’s out is even thinner (but still thicker than the E) I like the Nest as a thermostat but do find I end up turning off some of the auto scheduling. If you manually override any settings, it tends to learn weird preferences. I see some other negative reviews about it – I don’t really use this feature, so I’m still happy with the product for being able to remotely manage the thermostat, and for general ease of setup and use. Unless you’re actively repainting or fixing your house, I recommend getting the trim plate in case your old thermostat is not exactly the same size. Between the Nest E and Nest, I find the E good enough for most cases, but the fact the new Nest supports the sensors is something I'll be looking into further.

        User friendly, efficient & so many great features!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've tried to convince my husband we needed the Google Nest Thermostat for years and we finally got one! Not only is it so much better than the standard one we had before, it has exceeded my expectations! The new design is so sleek and modern, it really elevates all home thermostats. It is almost like a statement piece of art on the wall, so elegant. I love the fact that if we are away, it knows to adjust the heat and when we come home, we can make sure our house is a comfortable temperature for us to come home too. The Google Nest also tells us what devices are on and in which room they are on in which is a great added feature I had no idea about. My husband had a little bit of difficulty installing the Nest because we have a more complicated heating system that needed a passcode to bypass the typical install, but once troubleshooting and explaining the issue with the Google help team, he was able to fix the problem. I'm so happy that we finally got the Google Nest Thermostat! If you are trying to become a more energy efficient household that also appreciates gadgets that are multifunctional, the Nest is the perfect purchase for you!

          Super convenient!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am in love with this! I can change the temperature from anywhere and I love how I can be in bed and change the temperature without having to get out of my covers! The installation was very easy and fast with the app. Connection was fast and easy as well! Highly recommend!

            So Easy Use
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Google Nest Thermostat G2 is so user friendly and it has exceeded my expectations! My current thermostat was very dated and I experienced yearly issues with it. The Nest Thermostat is a huge upgrade and was very easy to install and is so easy to use. I highly recommend this Nest Thermostat to all homeowners!

              A Whole Lot of Technology In a Little Package
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The G2 Nest Thermostat has an incredible amount of features in a little circle and it looks great on the wall also. It is small and sleek and the chalk color blends in light colored walls. Pictures of the mirrored dial really do not do it justice; the mirror actually allows the G2 to blend into the surroundings. The screen is blank except when you are changing the temperature which helps it blend in even more. The thermostat is so easy to install, I am convinced anyone can do it themselves in less than 20 minutes. It took me less than 15 mins. Downloading the app was quick and easy on my iPhone. The app provided clear and detailed instructions for insulation and set up. Each step had a description of what to do as well as a picture/diagram. The actual thermostat had simple pinch connections for the wires thus eliminating the need to use a screwdriver to install the wires. It even has a small level embedded in the back to help on the install. The app is packed with feature to control the thermostat from multiple schedules to remote control from anywhere to alerts for things like filter changes. The app also will suggest setting and schedule changes although we have a pretty stable routine, it looks like our setting (days, times and temperatures) look good to Google. Even controlling the thermostat manually is cool, you change the temperature by running your finger along the side. This is my second smart thermostat, the first was a different brand, and the Nest G2 is head and shoulders above my first. Not only is the design much nicer, the app is considerably more intuitive, easier to navigate and much simpler to control the thermostat settings. Google did an outstanding job designing and putting the app together on this thermostat.

                Amazing Thermostat!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love my new nest! As soon as I opened the box, I was super impressed with the design. The mirrored glass design is gorgeous! Setting up the google home app was simple! Installing the actual nest was also super simple and the app helped me along the way to ensure everything was set up properly. Within a half hour my nest was ready to go! This thermostat is so much more accurate then my last thermostat. I love that I can use it with my Alexa, it is super convenient! On the nest, it displays the date, time, temperature outside as well inside. I also love that I can control the temperature right from my phone. One of my favorite features is that I can set a daily schedule for the heat, how amazing is that! If you are looking for a new thermostat, I definitely recommend the Google Nest!

                  Truly outstanding thermostat!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Looking for a change from our old type thermostat, I wanted to be able to control our system over WiFi. The Nest G2 is an absolute perfect addition to our home! I am amazed at how accurate the thermostat is and so many features. I really like that it shows outside weather. It senses when you come near it and turns on. It changes colors to when the heat is on so you know that the furnace is firing. It’s so easy to set the temp from my phone or change any of the great features. You can run many schedules that you control or it is set with defaults for your convenience. It’s great to have the ECO mode to save energy. Super easy to install and download the google app for total control. The app can also control your entire home. Works with voice control. Very well made! Can’t wait to get more google home control items!
