It's really this simple: the Nest App connects you with your Nest Thermostat so that you can take care of your home electricity usage when you're not at home. By using this app on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, you can adjust the temperature of your Nest Thermostat, see how much electricity you've used, change any settings, and more.

With Nest Messages, The Nest App even sends you periodic bulletins that encourage you to enact other energy-saving measures, including shifting your temperature, replacing your filters, or changing the battery in the thermostat.

How the Nest App Helps the Nest Thermostat Learn About You

Together, the Nest App and Nest Thermostat are always thinking so they can automatically program temperature settings that help you use less electricity. Better yet, the Nest App helps your Nest Thermostat learn what it needs to know about you and your home's usage so the entire relationship proves beneficial.

When you download the Nest App and make use of its great features, it works in tandem with the Thermostat to your benefit. The app takes the information you provide, sends it to the thermostat, and works to provide you the settings that best match your lifestyle and help be more energy efficient. Every time you adjust your home temperature from the Nest App, your Nest Thermostat treats it just like you made that shift at home on your thermostat.
