How do I get rid of the gold gear that now often appears on my Nest 2 "home screen?"

Community Member

On occasion my NEST 2 shows a gold gear on the "home screen" below the temperature, and it changes the temperature to some degree.  How do I get rid of this feature????  I do not use nor have the NEST APP - so how do I get rid of it on the device itself.  Thank you for anyone's help

The gold gear with a Nest Leaf inside is the Rush Hour Rewards feature. This features turns the heating or cooling up or down a few degrees to save energy when energy is in high demand.
