The Nest® Learning Thermostat™ solves the hassle of programming your thermostat so you can save up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills. Use Nest like a manual thermostat for about a week (turn it up when you wake up, down when you leave the house, up when you come home, down when you go to sleep) and Nest will take it from there, creating a personalized heating and cooling schedule. The Nest also automatically turns itself down when no one’s home thanks to built-in activity sensors that can tell when the family’s out. That can save energy and money. And, if you want to control the temperature by remote control, apps are available on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Nest Learning Thermostat – $249.00
