Nest Thermostat Review 2019: Features
The Nest Thermostat is a smart thermostat that allows you to remotely control your heating and cooling using your phone or compatible voice assistant like Alexa. You can adjust your heating and cooling, check the temperature in your home or even turn your HVAC system off all from your phone with the Nest Thermostat. Beyond allowing you to remotely control your Nest Thermostat with your phone the thermostat is packed with smart features that can help you save energy and live more comfortably.
Home / Away Mode - The Nest Smart Thermostat has built in motion sensors that detect if you are in your home or away from the house. If you enable the Home/Away mode the Nest Thermostat will automatically help you save energy when you’re away from your house by setting your thermostat to more energy efficient settings while you’re at work or on vacation automatically.
Auto Schedule - The auto schedule mode on the Nest Thermostat uses data from your daily routine on when you wake up, go to work and make adjustments to your thermostat to optimize the thermostats temperature based on your daily activities. The Nest learning algorithm makes adjustments overtime to perfect the schedule for maximum comfort
Airwave - This Nest feature works with your air conditioning to help you save energy and money by circulating the cool air in your HVAC system after your air conditioning compressor shuts off. This helps maximize the efficiency of your HVAC System.
Eco Mode - This mode allows you to set an energy saving temperature range that your Nest Thermostat will manage when you are away from your home, this means that your house won’t get too hot or too cold in Eco Mode but will allow you to save energy when your away. You can also just set your Nest Thermostat to Eco Mode on a nice day if you want to save energy.
Nest Thermostat Review 2019: Cool Things You Can Do With Your Nest
Beyond the great features built into the Nest there are other “hidden” upgrades you can do to your Nest Thermostat to increase the functionality. We review the cool things that you can do with your Nest to upgrade your smart home.
Control Your Nest With Your Voice
The Nest Thermostat is compatible with smart voice assistants that allow you to control your Nest Smart Thermostat with your voice. Nest is compatible with both Google Home and Alexa voice assistants and which once you set them up allow you to control your heating and cooling by saying voice commands like “Alexa, set thermostat to 72 degrees.” or “Alexa, set thermostat to cooling mode.”
Control Your Nest With Apple Watch
If you have an Apple Watch you can control your smart thermostat right from your wrist, all you need to do is install the Nest App on to your iPhone and Apple Watch and you can control your Nest Thermostat on your watch.
Protect Your House With Nest Thermostat
You can combine your Nest Thermostat with the Nest Protect Smoke Detector to enable smart home fire and carbon monoxide detection. The Nest Protect smoke detectors will detect and alert you to smoke or carbon monoxide and will work like a normal smoke/CO detector to alert you of danger, but the Nest Protect smoke detectors will also alert you on your phone while your at work is smoke or carbon monoxide is detected.
But when you combine the Nest Thermostat with a Nest Protect Smart Smoke/CO detector the two devices can work together to potentially save your life and home. The Nest Smoke Detectors communicate with your Nest Thermostat and can turn off your HVAC system in the event of detecting smoke or Carbon Monoxide.
Turning off your furnace in the event of a fire can prevent the spread of smoke throughout your home giving you more time to escape. Faulty furnaces are often a cause of carbon monoxide poisoning so being able to stop the source by shutting down your furnace could save your life.
Nest Room Comfort Sensors
You can combine your Nest Thermostat with Nest Thermostat Room Sensors which allow you to precisely control the temperature in individual rooms. The Nest Room sensors are battery powered and can be placed anywhere in your home to monitor the temperature but can also be used to control the temperature in an individual room. In the Nest App you can set the thermostat to heat or cool until the desired temperature is reached in your specific room with a Nest Room Sensor.
Nest Thermostat Review 2019: Summary
We hope you enjoyed this video blog post about the Nest Thermostat and why it can be a great addition to your home to help you live more comfortably, save energy and save money. I’ve had a Nest Thermostat in my home for years and I love using with with my Amazon Alexa devices for full voice control of my smart home. What I have enjoyed most about the Nest Thermostat is being able to adjust the temperature while I’m lying in bed at night if I feel myself too hot or too cold. Or being able to turn up the heat on a cold morning before I get out of bed.
