How Do You Set Nest Hold Temperature?

To set your Nest Thermostat to a hold setting, you need to turn off Auto Schedule, turn off the ECO settings, and reset the Schedule. Setting a hold temperature is relatively easy and takes about a minute. Once it's done, the temperature is in your control.

Feeling like it's your time to call the shots on temperature? You can manually set your Nest Thermostat to a fixed temperature. If you spend a lot of time in your home, you may prefer a consistent temperature over the eco settings.
