Difference Between Reset and Restart of Nest Thermostat

When it comes to restarting and resetting, several people are confused. This is an example of two different actions that you can perform with your Nest thermostat. Make sure you understand what each setting does before making a change to avoid accidentally wiping out all of your Nest’s data without realizing it.

The following is a list of the distinctions between resetting and restarting:
Reset: This function will clear all data in a specific area of your Nest thermostat, or it will clear all data collected by your Nest thermostat up to this point in time.
Restart: No data will be lost, erased, or forgotten if you restart your Nest thermostat. To make it run faster or reconnect more easily, it will simply turn off and restart the computer once more.

The use of these two terms synonymously can cause confusion. That’s not the case with the Nest thermostat, which makes it easy to distinguish between the two options.

Wrap Up

When you reset your Nest Thermostat, all of the data stored on it will be erased, and there is no way to recover it. As a result, you should exercise caution when diagnosing problems with your device and only do a reset if absolutely required.

In the majority of cases, a simple reboot will resolve your issue. When it comes down to it, the reset procedure is really basic and uncomplicated, and it is the same regardless of which type of Nest Thermostat you are using.

Additionally, your thermostat includes many reset options, allowing you to selectively wipe particular data that you want to update rather than the entire device, making the Nest Thermostat a fantastic addition to your home thanks to its versatility.

If you’ve forgotten your PIN, you can still simply unlock your Nest Thermostat by logging into the Nest App with the account that’s been linked to your Nest Thermostat. After that, you can proceed to Reset your Nest Thermostat as you normally would.
