Now Google Nest Learning Thermostat only in $179.99 at Best Buy

Nest made some pretty big promises when it first announced its smart thermostat. The company claimed that its thermostat could reduce your energy consumption by up to 10% through a smarter heating system, saving you money.

We’ve been living with the thermostat for a year now and have the data to find out if there’s any truth to those claims. Before the company got into the business of security cameras like the Nest Cam IQ and Nest Cam Outdoor, the smart home company was all about one thing: heating.

The Nest Thermostat was the company’s first product before it got into the business of security cameras like the Nest Cam IQ and the Nest Cam Outdoor, and it remains a very competitive and smartly designed thermostat, even if some of its features lag behind the competition in 2017.

While it’s certainly possible to control it with your smartphone, the Nest thermostat is so smart that you soon won’t care. Not only does it remember the different temperature settings you set it to throughout the day, but it also adjusts its program to your schedule with the help of the app’s built-in motion sensor and GPS feature.

The Nest Learning thermostat consists of two parts. The thermostat itself can be mounted on the wall or placed on an optional stand, which is sold separately. In the latter case, you’ll need to place the Nest near an electrical outlet and within range of your router (you’ll need Wi-Fi).

The other part is the Heat Link. This is the component that controls the boiler and communicates wirelessly with the thermostat. We had the Nest thermostat professionally installed, which the company recommends, since it needs to be connected to some high-voltage cables. Overall, the installation took about an hour, and it was a fairly painless process for the installer to disconnect our old thermostat and install a Nest in its place.

A household can have multiple zones, each with its own Nest thermostat and heating connection, but most households will probably have only one thermostat. Nest does not currently offer connected radiator valves that allow you to fine-tune the temperature in different rooms.
