How can I see the battery charge level

I use the Google Home app to check the battery.  Open the Google home app, choose the thermostat, choose the setting gear, go to device information, at the bottom will be the current battery voltage.  

With the Google Nest app, you need to open the app, tap the setting gear in the upper right, scroll down to Technical Information, tap it and the next screen show your battery level and the bottom. 

I hope this helps,

Thank you CoolingWizard--I can now find and monitor battery level.

Can you tell me what hour of the day Nest thinks starts and end "evening"?  I'd like to switch to a second thermostat for the evening in the living room that runs cold. Or the alternative is to just up the set point while we are in that room.

Thank you

The nice thing about the Nest app and the Google Home app is that whenever you are ready to change the temperature you can simply go into the app and change the temperature no matter where you’re at. Now there’s one other additional thing if you want to be a little more automatic; you can get a Google nest remote temperature sensor and then you can set a schedule as to when  that remote sensor takes control of the system.

What should be the battery level

Hi folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry for the delay. The ideal battery level for Nest Learning Thermostat is 3.7 V - 3.9 V. If your thermostat battery level goes down to 3.7 V, it might lead the thermostat to shut down and disconnect automatically to your Wi-Fi network and show offline in the Nest app. In any case, your thermostat shuts down and displays green or red blinking light, charging it to the micro USB cable for at least an hour is highly suggested. 

 

You can follow this guide on how to check your thermostat power readout:

 

  1. Go to your thermostat Quick View menu.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Look for Technical Info.
  4. Select Power.

 

Best,

Jenelyn
