Nest today updated their app for Android, adding support for Rush Hour Rewards and Seasonal Savings 2.0. If you have a Nest (and are downloading this update) you probably know what these are, but for those that don’t, here’s the short version. Rush Hour Rewards is way to “pre-cool” your home before those times when energy demand will be high (energy “rush hours”), and can save you up to $ 60 over the course of the summer. Seasonal Savings makes tiny adjustments in your schedule to promote energy saving, and can deliver up to 10-percent lower costs on heating and cooling.
