Product Overview

The Nest Learning Thermostat programs itself, then pays for itself. It learns from you and your home, programs itself automatically and helps save energy when you’re away—and you can control it using your phone, tablet or laptop. In independent studies, the Nest Thermostat saved an average of 10–12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. Based on typical energy costs, that means it pays for itself in under two years.

  • Auto-Schedule: no more confusing programming; Nest thermostat learns the temperatures you like and programs itself
  • Auto-Away: automatically turns itself down when you’re away to avoid heating or cooling an empty home
  • Nest Leaf: appears when you turn the Nest thermostat to a temperature that's energy efficient and guides you in the right direction
  • Energy History: see when heating and cooling were on and what affected your energy use
  • Remote Control: connect Nest thermostat to Wi-Fi to change the temperature from your smartphone, tablet or laptop
  • Auto-Tune: finds ways to automatically lower your energy bill while keeping you comfortable, enabling two Nest features: Rush Hour Rewards and Seasonal Savings
  • System Match: turns on specific features for forced air, heat pump or radiant to help you save energy and stay comfortable
  • Sunblock: in many homes the Nest thermostat is in direct sunlight, causing it to warm up; Nest automatically adapts to direct sunlight to read and set the right temperature
  • Pick the best air filters for your home. Check out our Buying Guide for helpful tips.
  • Nest will optimize itself for you and your system

The Nest Learning Thermostat will work with as few as 2 wires, one for power, the other for heat. As long as your wires are solid copper (not stranded), and your thermostat is low voltage (20-30 volts ac), the Nest is most likely compatible with your configuration. You can also check your compatibility by navigating to support.nest.com, or you can send a photo of your current wiring to support@nest.com. Read More

Learning Thermostat, 2nd Generation is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 469.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work and Nest would not replace I received this nest which was not charged upon arrival. I called help desk and they had me charge up the nest and call back. The power was still not connecting correctly and they tried to troubleshoot for an hour. At the end, the nest died again which they said should not be happening. They asked me to re-connect my old thermostat to prove that the issue was their product, and not my A/C. My A/C worked perfectly up to the second I attached th nest. I would never buy a nest product again.
Date published: 2016-09-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nest can't hold temperature steady I use the Nest for cooling. My nest lets the temperature rise 2 degrees above target temperature. Repeatedly. The result is that I wake up about five times a night feeling hot. I can't believe there is no way for the user to adjust the swing. Even cheap thermostats let users do that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Base Plate Shorted Out I guess I can consider myself lucky in terms that it took 2 years for my nest to stop working, but early this morning the furnace turned on and started blowing cold air when it was 39 degrees outside. Tried playing with nest and the furnace wouldn't respond to anything. Finally at 5am I had to resort to calling in an HVAC guy to come over at $150/hr since it was a weekend only for him to tell me the base plate on my nest shorted out and was sending a continuous signal to the furnace to run both the ac and heat at the same time. Pretty disappointing when I got online and saw that this is a very common problem with all versions of nests. For a product that costs $250, something as simple as a base plate should not be shorting out. Very disappointed and will not be buying another nest product ever again.

So if i can to it! i had it for over a year now with no problems. If something was better then this i would get it! HOWEVER, i haven't seen or heard about it yet. Its NOV 2014! Simple to use Easy wifi set up No battery to replace Looks great on the wall- no one know what it is until it lights up Sends you e-mails every month on energy use Adjust the heat right from your bed or on the sofa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Wanted The Nest takes time to adjust to your house and habits before it can fully utilize all the features it comes with. I've been using Nest for nearly three months, which is enough time for everything to adjust and work perfectly, but honestly, from day one I was happy with my purchase. There are loads of things I love about this device so far, so I'll focus on the highlights. The device was simple to install with very clear instructions, it even came with the nicest screws I've ever seen to install it with, which was kind of hilarious but a nice touch. A small bubble level is on the base of the device to help when mounting it to the wall. While my last thermostat had me screw in the wires to keep them in place, Nest features a little snap/clamp thing where you just need to press the button where the wire goes, slide in the wire, and release. Done. The whole device pops into place easily and even walks you through the account set up once it receives power. It came with a white rectangular faceplate at the bottom of the box which covers up the old holes from my last thermostat. This was a great edition because on one hand I love the sleek design of Nest, but since my last thermostat was a different shape, holes were going to be left in my wall. This nicely covered it up and left the area looking sharp. The device has a very sturdy design with glass and metal that will last probably forever. The screen turns off when not in use and will momentarily light up when something changes, like it if it turning on the AC. When you want to view the current temperature, you can just wave your hand close to the motion sensor or tap the bottom section of the circle to make the screen turn on. Nest does a very good job at learning your habits through a combination of using a motion sensor, light sensor, and your own manual adjustments to the temperature. Whenever I get home and walk by the thermostat, I hear my AC automatically turn on, which is exactly what I expect. I'm also easily able to access the Nest through an app on my phone, which means I rarely need to even touch the device. While the app has a myriad of features, my two favorites are the schedule and the energy history. There was a week where I was awake and working late every night and Nest noticed and made the AC turn on late at night when I was up. Afterward, I was easily able to click the timed event on the app and delete it. Extremely simple. The energy history feature on the app tells you every single time the Nest turned on the air and for how long. It also told me what the reason was if the AC was used more than normal, for example, it would say user adjustment or high or low weather. I also receive monthly emails about my energy usage. I love that the Nest takes into account when my house is in direct sunlight and what my local temperature. The little green "eco" leaf tells me what is the most energy efficient temperature for the circumstances. It doesn't always show up on the same temperature because conditions change that effect it's formula, which makes it easier for me to not think about it and trust my device to make things simpler. All in all, this is exactly what I expected from the device, and I was pleasantly surprised to get even more features than I originally thought. I installed it quickly, it started learning immediately, and has done a good job at saving me money already and paying for itself. I highly recommend this if your looking for a quick fix that will give you one less thing to worry about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A slick and money-saving device, fun to use. The NEST thermostat was easy to install and actually fun to program. I did half of the initial programming on the device itself, the other half over the Internet with my laptop. It is also easy to override your settings at any time from your smart phone with the free iPhone app. I expect to save a fair amount of fuel oil because of this device and I recommend it highly.
Date published: 2014-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart just got intelligent The Nest thermostat takes the guess work out of programming. Initial setup has you manually change your thermostat over the first week or so, after which the thermostat learns your habits and starts to set itself. I found the thermostat very easy to install, simply connect the wires to the corresponding terminals and the nest detected them and automatically set itself for my heating and cooling type. Motion sensors are built in, so it knows if you are away and automatically sets itself to conserve energy. This worked very well for us. I returned home early one day and the Nest sprang to life and cooled the home. Some features not found in a regular thermostat are the "Airwave" feature. Typically thermostats stop the fan when the heating or cooling is stopped, this leaves some hot or cold air in the ducts. The Nest runs the fan a little afterwards, pushing out this otherwise wasted air. The Nest also learns how long it takes to heat or cool your room. So when you select your desired temperature it tells you how long it is going to take to get there, this actually influences your choice and can result in energy savings; for example I told the Nest I wanted to cool to 75 degrees and it said it would take 44 minutes to get there, selecting 76 told me just 20 minutes. I picked 75 instead and saved 24 minutes of energy (I didn't notice the 1 degree difference). The Nest tries to influence your energy use habits. If you pick an energy efficient setting it shows a little green leaf on the display, this actually influenced me to pick a smarter temperature, saving me money and energy usage. Aesthetically the Nest is a work of art. Very futuristic, yet not too obvious. The color display and solid metal casing make this stand out against the traditional plastic offerings. The polished black display spring to a vibrant colorful display when you approach, and also when you make changes using the free mobile application. A helpful install kit, including tools, is provided. As is a concierge service to help with installation issues. I cant comment on the latter, as I didn't need to call - it was so easy to install. I used this with a smart phone app, and I was surprised as how quickly it responded. I've used mobile applications with other WiFi thermostats and there is always a little lag, this seemed to respond immediately. The thermostat can be controlled manually, via a web site, or using a smart phone. Filter change emails can be configured too - these are smart alerts. The Nest alerts you based on usage, not on how long the filter has been installed. If you don't need to run your AC or heating for a while, the Nest knows the filter is not getting dirty and doesn't tell you to change it unnecessarily, conversely if you are using it a lot it knows you need to change it more often.
