Do you wish that you could take control of your home no matter where you are? Thanks to Google Nest, you can do just that. You can manage your smart thermostat, security system and more right from your phone. Even better, you can control all of these features and more with the Nest mobile app.
Control Your Home's Thermostat
Using the Nest app, you can control your Nest Thermostat E or Nest Learning Thermostat. This means that you can use your phone to change the temperature in your home whether you're in bed or at work.
However, the Nest app takes this idea a bit further than other smart thermostats on the market. Using this app, you can see how much energy that you've used and get suggestions on how to reduce your energy usage. You can even set or edit schedules that adjust the temperature automatically.
Another great feature is the ability to get extreme temperature alerts on your phone. These alerts warn you if your home is getting too hot or cold.

Manage Your Security System
Having full control over your home's security system is a big plus. If you have a Nest Secure alarm system, you can control it using the Nest app no matter where you are. In fact, the app gives you the ability to arm and disarm your security system remotely and receive security alerts and reminders.
For example, let's say that you leave your house but forget to arm your security system. If you have the Nest app, you'll get a reminder that you forgot to set your alarm. Also, the app will let you arm your system.
The security alerts that you receive are very informative as well. They tell you when and which alarm was triggered in your home. For example, it can tell you if a window or door is open or is being opened.
Control Other Nest Devices
Once you download the Nest app, you gain full control over all of your Nest devices, including Nest Protect and Nest Cam IQ. Nest Protect is a carbon monoxide and smoke alarm that sends alerts to the app if it senses carbon monoxide or smoke. You can check the status of your sensors, your Wi-Fi connection and the batteries from your phone too.
Nest Cam IQ is an indoor and outdoor camera that delivers live feeds of your home to your phone. This lets you easily check up on your kids when they get home from school or look around your yard without having to be there. Best of all, Nest Cam IQ sends these videos right to your phone if you have the Nest app.
Lastly, you can connect Nest Hello to the app. This video camera doorbell shows you who's at your door before you answer it. Even when guests don't ring the doorbell, Nest Hello starts a video feed once it detects motion. If you have the Nest app, you can view who's at your door even when you're not there. The Nest app allows you to speak and listen via Nest Hello too.
Manage Your Smart Home Devices From Anywhere
If you're already using Nest products in your home, you should download the Nest app right away to get the most out of them. It's a great example of why investing in Nest products is a good idea in general. Best of all, the Nest app is completely free to install.
