GOOGLE Nest offers many smart products that make your home feel like a home.
However, one couple has found that their Google Nest thermostat causes more problems than it solves.
Reddit user u/AlternativeSherbert9 explained how her Nest thermostat is causing problems between her and her husband.
She wrote on Reddit that she’s a 35-year-old woman who takes a few different medications that make the cold unbearable for her.
Her 33-year-old husband apparently likes it cold, so they settled on a Google Nest thermostat as a compromise.
The Reddit user explained, “I got a Nest thermostat to help alleviate the problem because I thought it might help since they’re supposed to be ‘smart’.
“Well, all it does is ‘learn’ that he loves it cold. It cannot learn proper adjustments because it gets home before me and cranks it all the way down when in reality it should simply allow the nest to do its job and cool as it is ‘learned’ to do.
“I bought him a floor fan and cooling blanket to use so I can keep the house at a reasonable temperature for me and it still seems like it’s always set at 70 or 71.”
The woman is now threatening to lock her husband out of the Google account.
Despite saying she has been battling an illness that causes her pain when she’s cold, many commentators sided with her husband.
One Reddit user replied: “Why are you ‘mad’ that he turned the air off when you were out instead of just, I don’t know, quietly turning it on 73?
“Why would he have an uncomfortable temperature when you’re not even home?”
Another said: “Your threats to remove him from the app are also very concerning.
“You can’t dictate access to household appliances for him. It’s tough, it sucks that neither of you can be really comfortable, but you seem like you have some control over this issue.”
However, other comments were more sympathetic and agreed that the thermostat should be set to the preference of the wife rather than the husband.
