Fits the Nest Gen 3 perfectly! Looks way better than the included rectangular plate that comes included with the Nest. All the holes line up perfectly. The only downside is that since it's chrome, fingerprints show up regularly. But that's not the fault of this product. Included a pic of it after installation. My wife jokingly says it looks like a shower fixture. I think it looks great!
I am now an owner of both the Honeywell product and Nest, one in one house and one in the other (or I should say three in each). I can honestly say the Nest is far more technologically advanced and has a friendly user interface. Both are not as simple to install as they say, particularly if you don't have a C wire (so I used Add-a-wire to do so) but I do like the fact that the Nest battery is rechargeable (on its own with C wire) vs the Lyric which takes a lithium ion battery which I had to replace every four - six months (a pain for a second home when you are not there). Nest is also more attractive of a product for user. I also found customer service (which I needed) to be excellent. The beauty of competition is that it will force Honeywell to improve it's Lyric product, which is now obviously outdated. Before I convert my second house to Nest, I am standing by to see what Honeywell does. It's shocking to me that a company the size and stature of Honeywell has fallen behind more of an entrepreneurial company like Nest (but then again, maybe I'm not surprised)
This wall plate is awesome. Covers up most of the wall damage from our old rectangular thermostat, and it looks waaaaaayyyy better than the rectangular plate that Nest provides. There’s just something innately wrong about using a rectangular plate with a round thermostat. This plate looks like it should have actually come with the thermostat, not the other way around.
I got the white plate for my stainless Nest. It compliments it very well.
I really like how it looks on the wall. It was easy to install and fits in perfectly with my 3rd generation nest. It covers the old hole nicely. I don’t know how to explain it exactly but the color and the texture are amazing. Its well coated and soft matte finish. The quality is nice and makes the nest look fancier. Packaging is good, arrived with no scratch. Highly recommend it!
First off I’m an electrician. I installed this in about 10 minutes including a separately bought wall mount. They include one though that’s actually pretty nice. This thermostat has saved us a lot of unnecessary heat usage. This thermostat learns what you set things to and gives you detailed ways to save more energy and money by setting it at different temps. My two favorite things though are I set it so when you walk by it tells you the current temp outside and gives you the forecast! I also love it learns what you like and it goes to that temp. Here’s a beware make sure you don’t have someone especially early on accidentally do something you wouldn’t normally do. It may remember that and you make come back to your house set at 85! I’ve heard of that story once because their kid accidentally touched the thermostat. Enjoy it’s actually cool looking and fun to set just be careful and make sure you turn off the power because low voltage cause still short out and blow a fuse in the furnace.
I hated the default rectangular white wall plate that came with my Nest Thermostat and thought this would be a cheap way to replace it. It really is just a circular piece of thin plastic but in my opinion it looks much better and is worth the extra cost. The metal support for my thermostat does not sit flush with my wall and sticks out a bit. A lot of the other wall plates requires a completely flat surface which would not have worked for me. This cover has just enough of a buffer to still sit flush with my wall (similar amount of space as the default Nest wall plate) even with the metal support sticking out a bit.
I also purchased the Elago grip cover to change the color of the ring around the thermostat. The two items fit together along with the thermostat perfectly.
My previous thermostat was a square box so I was a little worried that this wasn't going to be big enough but it is exactly big enough to cover the previous markings on the wall. My previous one didn't have a whole lot more real-estate space than my nest. If you previous thermostat is a lot bigger than the Nest, this might not work for you.
Good quality plastic. Good enough for this purpose. I didn't try but you could probably bend it if you tried but perfect for it's purpose. Was easy to install. It sits behind the Nest base during install so either install them at the same time or be aware that you will have to remove the Nest to install it.
I got this because my neighbor has the Nest and used the rectangle cover that comes in the box. I can't handle the different shapes so I figured Amazon has to have something that is also circular. So glad I got this product.
Always wanted one of these and am not disappointed. The temp is easy to see and knows when to lower the temp now early in the day so when the evening sun hits the Living room side of the house it stays cool throughout the evening and into night. Before if I did not adjust the temp around noon to 1pm then it took a while to finally cool down the West side of the house. Around 10PM it will increase the temp so the AD unit begins cycling off and on. No more having to manually maintain the temp or schedule when it should change temps.
I purchased 2 of the wall plate covers and 2 of the Nest grippers by this company and I am Super happy with my purchase. They really set off the look of my Nest thermostats. If you are considering these, I say that they are a must buy.
Very easy to install with Nest 3rd Gen. The Nest backplate had 4 holes in the back that align with the 4 mounts on the elago wall plate, simply align the backplate, press together, and mount it like you would normally mount the Nest with 2 screws. I bought the white cover and it doesn't look "cheap" and goes well with the white Nest. The back has some gap between the plate and the wall, while the edge is still flush, to allow your wiring access hole to offset slightly and let the wires to route behind the plate if needed. The only thing I don't like is the branding since it does not seem necessary which is why I gave 4 stars.
