Start protecting your home with the Google Nest App for Pc


 If you own a smart home then Nest app should be one of your favourite apps because it offers a lot of practical ways to maximise your use of your smart home. It serves as a control home for all your Nest Products.  Nest apps work with Thermostats, Cameras, Security systems, Doorbells and Smoke alarms. However, even though there is a limitation to how many homes can be worked on at a time, it works perfectly well for those it covers.

If you use Nest products, then this app right here is your best bet as it emphasises functionality and uniformity in usage throughout all the products. For example with your Nest app, you can adjust the temperature of your Thermostat from anywhere. You can always check in to see what's going on and it's easy to manage your home from wherever you may be. You can also be alerted when there is a smoke emergency at home, in your absence.

With the nest app you are able to receive notifications on your device from wherever. You can arm and disarm your Nest alarm system with your Nest app.  Interestingly, Nest app uses algorithms and sensors when watching over your home; For example, let's say you forget to switch on an alarm, your Nest app notices and will send you a reminder. 


Key Benefits

  • Ability to change the temperature of your thermostat from your phone.
  • You get to view and exit your schedule as at when due.
  • The smoke whenever it escapes thinks and speaks and basically alerts you. You're able to receive these alerts using a Wi-Fi or internet connection.
  • Ability to silence an alarm from your phone.
  • Ability to run a safety check up and also see your safety history.
  • Notification for who is knocking.
  • Notifications for visitors even when they don't knock
  • Ability to distinguish between a person and something else.
  • Ability to record messages to your visitors when you're not around,  when you can't answer the door.
  • Ability to receive an alert when someone unlocks your door or when someone locks your door.


Why you should use the Nest App

First of all you should use the Nest app because if for example someone knocks on your door you can know if it's a person or if it's some other thing.

Also with a good internet connection, you never miss any activity that goes on at your home even when you're not around. Moreso, you can check the safety history of your alert and when something is off it's easy to tell. This is what happens when you use the Nest cam and app, both indoor and outdoor.

Pros of using the Nest App:

  • Consistent alerts for when something is off
  • Notifications are sent to you just in case you forget to protect your home. 
  • A more secure lock for your home with trusted access given by you and you alone. 
  • You can record messages prior to visitors coming to your home just in case you are not around.
  • Records snapshots just in case the video is not perfect enough for you.



  • Your internet connection must always be on as some of these need an active WI-Fi or internet connection and cannot work without it.

  • A Life Saver!!

    By mydearmon (Pcmac user)

    My 80 year old mother lived by herself and started falling. One day after several people tried contacting her by phone, I went to check on her and found her laying on her bathroom floor. Upon paramedics arrival they estimated she had been on the floor for a couple of hours due to dry blood from where she hit her head due to a fall. That’s when Nest cameras came into our lives !!! I needed something I could check on her without drilling into apartment walls that was not allowed. My brother suggested and came and set up 2 camera’s. One in her living room and one in her bedroom. My mom has Alzheimer’s and Dementia and has lived with 2 alternating caregivers for almost 3years now. I can keep a close eye on her, I have been able to assist the caregivers in time of need and my moms confusion by talking to my mom through the cameras and I cannot stress how these cameras has tremendously and so outstanding has helped to keep my mother home and safe and has been absolutely a BLESSING TO HAVE!!
  • Nest is the Best!

    By Gu_ru Gu_ru (Pcmac user)

    I have owned several DVR/NVR home video surveillance systems throughout the years and I have been pleased with the video quality of those devices, but the one feature I’ve always complained about was the playback/video review. Prior to becoming a Nest customer, I was hesitant to purchase their product because of the monthly subscription. One year, I got a camera as a gift and tried their free trial. I knew it was going to take more than the video quality to become a customer. So, I tried it and once I tested the playback feature I was completely sold. I could not believe how easy it was to review 24 hours of data in less than a minute. The cloud based Nest home surveillance system is the way to go. Since my first camera, I purchased two other cameras, to include, the Nest Ring Doorbell.
  • It used to be great

    By Jozze82 (Pcmac user)

    When I first purchased the indoor cameras, motion detectors, nest aware etc everything worked great. That lasted a few months. Not sure if this is an issue with the app unable to communicate with the hardware or the hardware not communicating with the app. Now I get reminders to set alarm when we are home, constantly. Apparently it no longer recognizes when we’re home and when we are not. The indoor cameras turn on and off at will when we are home and I get constant notifications that “looks like someone is home” constantly. Yes that’s me who’s home thanks for letting me know every 5 minutes. Facial recognition you ask??? Pretty much useless since it doesn’t recognize me or any of my family members even though we have had the cameras for over a year. App CONSTANTLY sends me push notifications when we’re home. Apparently the only thing it recognizes and remembers are packages left at the front door. For such expensive hardware I’d expect it to work like its price tag would indicate. Unfortunately I’m “stuck” with all the nest hardware and therefore the app. I’d recommend going with something else that has better value for your money.
  • Good but needs better support

    By Zzzzzzzzzzzz323 (Pcmac user)

    Have three cameras, they work very well , so why four stars , if you have a tech problem they have people to help you but if you try to talk to someone about a financial matter forget it , that has to change , I spent on the phone three times trying to correct a problem on there end , the first time it was supposedly corrected , next month same problem spent over hour again with a tech trying to explain to me how to correct a financial problem he know nothing about and had no way to connect me to someone who could help , after over hour gave up , tried again with the same results to a point the nest rep. Gave up because he could not figure out how to solve the problem. So if someone is listening please get live people who can solve a financial problem, one in which I was trying to give you money , or fix your present system, other then that a good system
