The Nest beta program is an opportunity for you to help make the Nest thermostat better. Here's what to expect:

Nest will send you a Nest Learning Thermostat.
You'll test the Nest over the next 6 months.
Beta communications, activities, bug reporting, and forums will be done via Centercode.
Nest will automatically update its software every two weeks or so, including beta testing guidelines for that software.
If you have previously determined that your system is incompatible with Nest, please continue to complete this application as we may be able to help you.
If the Nest beta program sounds right for you, fill in your contact information on the following pages so that we can get in touch with you.

I just got an email too! Hoping it's the 3rd gen. My brother has the 1st gen and loves it. He bought the 2nd gen for my parent's house. Now i'm looking to test out the 3rd Gen in my apartment.

Anyone happen to know if we will have to return these units upon completion?

Can anyone in the beta say if they just got new software or a new gen3 hardware? I want to pick up a nest, but don't want to put money down on a gen2 if gen3 is coming out soon!

Thanks!

You most likely will not get an answer on this since testing requires you to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Just want to give everyone a heads up here that Nest does not, or no longer provides an incentive retail product at the end of their "Field Tests."

I've been involved in a "Field Test" for over 6 months and when I began to inquire about when it would end and we'd get incentive units, I was told it will never end and there will be no incentive reward units sent out, ever.

This is contrary to every one of more than a dozen Betabound tests in which I've participated.

So be forewarned, if you participate in a Nest test, it is likely you are volunteering significant time for no reward at the end.
