    Nest 2.0 Back Up Staging

    So I have this customer who I'm installing a heat pump for tomorrow and he already bought a NEST 2.0 as part of the system. I am wondering how this dumb thing stages back up heat in a dual fuel application. All the information I can find talks to you like you're an idiot.

    Cool, thanks for this. So it uses Wifi. I wouldn't feel too great having to rely solely on wifi but I'm not offering any guarantees with this retard thermostat so its all good!

    Other thermostats have one way to control auxiliary heat: the AUX lockout temperature. If your AUX lockout temp is 40ēF/4.4ēC, then auxiliary heat will come on when the room drops below 40ēF/4.4ēC
    .

    what'chu talk'n 'bout willis????

    seriously, I have never set up a thermostat to come on when ROOM TEMPERATURE gets that low? what the hell are they talking about

    I think he meant the aux heat is locked out until the outdoor temperature drops below 40.

    I sure hope thats what they mean, anyone know how much this thing costs? I have been rummaging around there website, but I have not seen any pricing. I also understand that Lowes is now selling these stats? is that true?

    Yes, you can buy the Nest @ Lowe's. We aren't allowed to discuss exact prices here but a quick Google search will tell you how much a nest costs.

    I just installed it today. It was very easy to install but I don't trust it. There is virtually no setup at all, its just like Apple and assumes you are a blithering idiot who has no business deciding anything. Also, there is no way to switch to emergency heat in dual fuel mode LOL. You just have to set the outdoor temperature lockout high to get it to come on. All in all its a stupid Apple piece of sh!t in my opinion.

    How does the Wi-Fi connect? I see there is a mini-usb port on the back? But I have no idea how the stat connects to the internet? How does that work?

    So it comes with an outdoor stat? Is it wireless also? We are starting to get calls from HO wanting us to install as they can't do it themselves.

    the same way you would connect a laptop computer. wi-fi doesnt use cables

    I'm pretty sure it's for charging the stat if you don't have a common. I've only worked on one, a home owner installed and they were sick of taking it off to charge it. Stat had an extra wire so I hooked up common and haven't heard from them since.
