Nest Learning Thermostat (3rd Gen) review:


While Nest's $249 (£185/AU$330 converted) third-generation Learning Thermostat ($250 at Amazon) doesn't deviate wildly from previous iterations, this model has a larger screen and a slimmer profile, as well as a couple of new features. Specifically, it...

The $249 Nest Learning Thermostat has a larger display, a better resolution and a far-field sensor for viewing time and temperature information from a distance. It works with Google Assistant and Alexa -- and Nest *finally* sells a temperature sensor...

Nest is a solid smart thermostat, but the Ecobee4 offers more smart home integrations and a better overall value.

Nest Learning Thermostat (3rd Generation) Review


Back in 2012, the original Nest Learning Thermostat took the nascent smart home market by storm and earned our Editors' Choice award for its ease of use, elegant design, and learning capabilities. Since then Nest has been bought by Google and the...

Sleek design. Easy to install. Loaded with features. Interacts with other Nest and third-party devices. Support for Alexa, Google Home, and IFTTT.

Lacks remote room sensors. Pricey.

The third-generation Nest Learning Thermostat has all the smarts of its predecessors and adds some new features including a larger display, geofencing support, a furnace monitor, and a few more sensors.

Nest Thermostat 3rd-gen Review (2015)


Nest created the smart thermostat market, and now it's under attack. Turns out the appeal of home temperature control without requiring programming more complex than a graduate degree, and more flexible than "on" or "off", is enough to lure in not only...

Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd generation review: The choice for style-conscious homeowners


The Nest has been the smart thermostat of choice since it arrived on the scene in 2011. Google bought Nest Labs because its thermostat was so impressive, but the product hasn't changed much over the years—it's still a reliable and smart way to control...

•The best algorithms on the market •Excellent interface and easy set-up •Works with Nest program delivers a huge array of devices that it can interact with •The prettiest thermostat you can buy

•Too reliant on its built-in motion sensor (or your buying other Nest products) •Nest doesn't like geofencing, so it thinks you shouldn't either •Expensive for the performance it delivers

The Nest is, overall, the ideal smart thermostat for those who want to put minimal effort into controlling their heating and cooling system. At the same time, its top-notch interface allows for precise manual scheduling. The reliance on its motion...

Nest Thermostat review: An easy recommendation for budget shoppers


Most of the features we love about the top-of-the-line Nest Learning Thermostat—at almost half the cost.

Attractive industrial design, available in four colors ; Very easy to install, program, and use ; Monitors your HVAC system for potential problems ; Energy Star certified

No support for remote room sensors ; Not suited to more complex HVAC systems ; Backplate for covering holes from previous installations is a $15 option

If you want a great-looking, easy-to-use, affordable smart thermostat, the new Nest Thermostat is easy to recommend. It’s attractive, well built, and priced low enough that your local utility might even reimburse you for a big chunk of its...

Nest Learning Thermostat Version 3 Review (2015 Edition)


The third-gen Nest Learning Thermostat sports a bigger display, comes with more temperature sensors and works well with other smart home gadgets.

Large display ; Works with multiple smart home systems ; Intuitive Interface ; Easy to install

Can't monitor temperature in multiple rooms ; Doesn't work with Apple HomeKit

But that doesn't make the Nest any less compelling. For one thing, it's far more attractive, and it can learn your behavior and automatically adjust the temperature to suit your needs. That's pretty smart.

Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation Review


The Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation successfully blurs the lines between home security, automation and climate control. Over time, it learns your habits and adjusts to your lifestyle to conserve energy and lower your utility bills.

Nest's thermostat tracks your temperature preferences and schedule then programs itself accordingly.

The company’s two-year warranty is shorter than the industry average.

The Nest Learning Thermostat is an incredibly efficient, easy-to-use programmable thermostat. Its automatic scheduling feature is the most advanced we've seen, and it’s a valuable addition to any home.

Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation Review | Trusted Reviews


Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation review: The best single smart thermostat, but it would be nice to have a few expansion options.

Looks fantastic ; Learns how you use it ; Sharp and clear display

Can't expand to radiator control

The Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation is a high-quality and powerful smart thermostat, but we'd love to see the option to expand to individual radiator control

Nest Thermostat


If reports are to be believed, Nest may be going through tough times with its parent company, Alphabet (Google). Nevertheless, its flagship product – the Nest Thermostat – remains the go-to option for those trying to make their home a little smarter.

Nest Learning Thermostat review


Nest made some pretty grand claims about its smart thermostat when it was first announced. The company claimed that, through a more intelligent heating system, its thermostat could reduce your energy consumption by as much as 10% and hence save you money.

Attractive design and finish Great mobile app Very simple to operate Learns and adapts with use

No zonal heating control Functionality relies on good placement Best installed by a professional

Nest claims that its smart thermostat is an easy way of saving money on your future heating bills. It has an attractive design and is easy to operate, but the immediate cost might put some off. After living with the device for a year, our results...
