Nest Screen Timeout

I want to be able to look at my thermostat from across the room and see what the temperature is. The screen keeps going off. Is there no way to keep it turned on? My old $30 thermostat from 2004 could do this...

If I get up and walk towards it, it comes on immediately.

It is by design.  It does not stay on all the time.

Hey there,

 

Thanks for the help HLy.

 

I wanted to follow up and see if I could be of any help. I found an article with more details on when your device display will turn on. Please let me know if you have any questions from here, as I would be happy to take a closer look and assist you further. 

Best regards,
Jake

Hi all, thanks for the help. I just returned the Nest - kind of crazy my ancient thermostat had this function but this brand new high-tech gadget does not.

Hey there,

 

I am sorry to hear the device was not what you are looking for. With you returning the Nest Thermostat, I am going to go ahead and lock the thread at this time. If you have any questions from here, please feel free to create a new post.

 

Best regards,

Jake
