What is Farsight?

Farsight is a Nest feature that’s designed to make text bigger so it’s easier for you to read the thermostat from across the room. Most people love it for one reason — when they come home, they can see that the Nest knows they are home, has adjusted the target temperature (if needed), and has an indicator that says everything is working as expected. The Nest E lacks Farsight and doesn’t have the sensor required to adjust the temperature like that.
