Do I have to program the Nest Learning Thermostat myself?
For the first week, you use the Nest Learning Thermostat as you would a manual thermostat and Nest learns from your adjustments. In about a week, Nest learns your schedule and will change the temperature of your home automatically. You can also change the schedule manually at any time.

Nest adjusts to an energy-conserving temperature when it senses that there hasn’t been any activity in your home for an extended period of time. This feature is called Auto-Away.
