You’re going on vacation and have run into a problem: You don’t want your air conditioner running the entire time, but you don’t want to come home and deal with a house that’s too warm. Managing your home's temperature efficiently doesn't have to be a chore. If you've recently upgraded your home with the Google Nest Thermostat®, we’ve got you covered.

At Asurion, our experts have the tech know-how to help with any problem—including ones you’ve never thought about before, like ways you can make your home a little smarter. Here's your go-to guide on how to turn it off manually or with the app.

Why turn off your Nest Thermostat?

The Nest Thermostat takes the guesswork out of maintaining your ideal home climate. You can use it to control your home’s heating and cooling when you aren’t there or you can create schedules for when it should kick on or off throughout the day.

Controlling your thermostat via the app makes long vacations simple, and manually turning it off can make in-the-moment maintenance a breeze. Whether you want to put your Nest Thermostat into Off mode with the app or by hand, we’ll show you how to do both.

Turning off the Nest Thermostat using the app

This method allows you to control your Thermostat from anywhere, ensuring that you can switch it off even when you're not at home.

  1. Open the Nest app on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. Tap the Thermostat you want to turn off. Then tap Mode > Off.

Turning off the Nest Thermostat the manual way

Turning off your Nest Thermostat manually is straightforward and does not require the use of your smartphone, making it convenient for quick adjustments.

  1. Go to your Nest Thermostat, and press the display to bring up the main menu.
  2. Use the ring to navigate to Thermostat and press it. Turn the ring to Off and press it.

Some Nest thermostat models will have you press and hold the screen until “Turn off” appears, then slide the touch bar to highlight and select Turn Off.
