Nest has updated their mobile app for their smart thermostat to add a variety of new features, such as the ability to schedule the fan, improved details in Energy History, reminders to change filters, plus more:
What’s New in Version 3.5.0
– Schedule the fan to turn on daily, for a few minutes each hour, or on a timer.
– View Sunblock and Cool to Dry in Energy History.
– Tap and hold the tick on the large thermostat icon to change the temperature (in addition to tapping the upper or lower half of the icon).
– Get messages for Filter Reminders.
– Remove a thermostat and add or remove a home from the app.
– Get messages for Seasonal Savings and Rush Hour Rewards and see their effect in Energy History (available with certain utility programs).
– Overall improvements and bug fixes.
