This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.
We wanted to keep it from 73 to 78 for the birds. […] If we didn’t have any pets at home, we would certainly keep the Nest on auto-away.
I have a cat and she doesn’t seem to care about the temperature. If it’s too hot, she’ll spend a good 50-75% of the day sleeping in a sunny spot. If it’s too cold, she’ll spend a good 50-75% of the day sleeping in a sunny spot.
For my friend Bryce, however, he has used it to tweak the temperature on the thermostat on the first floor.
I frequently remember to turn mine back on before I get home on a hot day.
It still required you to toggle it from heat mode to cool mode. The only difference was that you could turn on the heat without leaving your bed in the middle of the night through the iPhone app.
I have never run a heater indoors in Miami.
Today, the Nest is much better than where it was on launch.
The best Nest feature is that there’s a new feature every few months.
