The Nest Learning Thermostat is a smart home device that learns your patterns and temperature preferences. It adjusts when a room—or home—is empty, and according to time and weather. You can also control it remotely via a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Since its release, the Nest Learning Thermostat has helped users save billions of kWh of energy. In addition to lower utility bills, users love the ease of installation and the convenience of controlling everything from an app.
Another favorite feature is the attractive design. The thermostat comes in a variety of finishes like copper, stainless steel, black, and white, to complement nearly any home's decor.
Even though users rave about the Google Nest Thermostat, there are a few things users complain about. The Farsight feature, which prompts the thermostat to light up and display the current temperature and local weather whenever someone enters a room, was criticized a lot at first.
Customers didn’t like that it displayed only the set temperature and not the actual room temperature. To its credit, Nest paid attention to customer feedback and enhanced this feature.
Price is another point of contention. At around $200, the Nest Learning Thermostat is one of the more expensive thermostats. Still, customers report high levels of satisfaction, and many say that this thermostat more than pays for itself in energy savings.
