Nest has upgraded its Nest Mobile app to version 4.0, adding a brand brand-new design, brand-new features for Nest Thermostat management and compatibility with the Nest Protect smoke detector.
The app is getting a full redesign: given that you regulate both Nest Protect and the Nest Learning Thermostat from one location, we upgraded the mobile app to fit– and work better– for both. You won’t have to turn the phone sideways to set your Thermostat to Away or see settings and things will certainly get a lot more fascinating when you link a Nest Protect.
The user interface of the app has been upgraded to provide users all the details they need at a fast look, consisting of weather condition, the ability to alter an individual’s status from ‘house’ to ‘away’ without putting the phone into landscape mode, a dynamic Nest thermostat icon and a dynamic Nest Protect icon.
The Thermostat icon turns black if a space is cooling or is not heating and will certainly turn orange if it’s heating and blue if the AC is on. The Protect icon is green if everything in the home is ALRIGHT and will turn yellow or red if there’s a Heads Up or Emergency Alarm notification respectively.

The Protect section of the app allows users to see the status of all their set up Protect smoke alarm in their house on a single page listed by space name. The app also notifies users as threat escalates or subsides with messages and push notifications.
Users with dual fuel or heat pumps get new functions too, including Quiet Time to silence stand-alone humidifiers and dehumidifiers at certain times, and, if individuals have both Thermostat and Protect, closed down the heater if there’s a CO emergency.
The 4.0 update is being pushed to Thermostats instantly over the next few days. Nest notes that individuals need to examine ‘Technical Details’ within ‘Setups’ to see if their Thermostat has gotten the upgrade. The app update is available now.
