Comment:
Recent software update caused the thermostat to fail during the winter time. I detected the failure in time to prevent any discomfort or damage. The built in cold limit would not have worked because the thermostat would have powered itself off so until a hardware temperature limit is incorporated or you add your own backup thermostat don't use ultra smart thermostats. I installed a backup thermostat in parallel on my own with the Nest something Nest support would not advise me on how to do and suggested I contact a professional. I also added a 5th common (blue) wire so the thermostat would always be able to charge without stealing current from the other circuits. I love the remote control in the summer time as I am being able to cool the home before I get home.

Comment:
Our HVAC system completely failed, so I opted to replace the entire system. At that time I replaced an old programmable thermostat with the 3rd Gen Nest. I was quite easy to install, once I worked out how the previous owner of the house had misfired the thermostat wiring. It is extremely easy to program using the IOS app, and will program itself if you don't.Being able to control it from phones and tablets throughout the house is very convenient and easy. The main display is easy t see and lights up as you walk by. It also interfaces with the Nest CO/smoke detector as well. Overall, our experience has been excellent. Recommended.
How long have you owned it:

Of all places, I purchased it at a Verizon Wireless corporate store. It was ez to install and setup was simple. This was the 3rd generation model. I am not familiar with the older Nests.
