The Nest Learning Thermostat offers rings in different colors to match your interior and features an easy-to-read display. You can control heating and hot water automatically. In just a week, the thermostat will know how hot or cold your home is during the day. It raises the temperature when you’re at home and lowers it when you’re out, ultimately saving you energy.

The device tracks your activity and creates a schedule based on this data. It turns the heat down at night and up in the morning, so you wake up to a warmer house.When you go to work, using sensors and your smartphone’s location, the Nest Thermostat detects that you’ve left and sets itself to ecological temperature to save energy.

If you’re not home but your kids are on their way home, grab your smartphone and adjust the temperature remotely via the Nest app.

More than just environmental controls

The latest version of the Nest Learning Thermostat lets you control your hot water tank according to your own hot water schedule, all of which can be adjusted via the app. Forgot to turn off the hot water when going out? no problem. Do you have guests who need extra hot water? no problem. The Nest Thermostat takes care of that for you.

the one with the thermostat energy history and monthly Home Report Shows you how much energy you use every day and when. The report suggests how to use less. When you set the temperature to an energy saving level, the device will display the Nest sheet.

Another feature added by the latest Nest Learning Thermostat is the remote display. The thermostat lights up and displays the temperature, time or weather. You can even choose between analog or digital watch faces.

When paired with the Nest Heat Link, the thermostat works with your oven to control your heating and hot water. The Heat Link can connect wirelessly to your boiler or use the wires of an existing thermostat, then “talk” to the thermostat to regulate the heat.

The Nest app connects via Wi-Fi so you can control the temperature of your home remotely.
