Nest Products: The Learning Thermostat

January 01st, 2017

The Nest Company made a name for itself by creating a new breed of thermostat that could learn. Since then, they have created an entire line of home safety and comfort devices that are intelligent and connected.

The Nest Thermostat

The Nest Thermostat was one of the first truly intelligent thermostats. “Programmable” thermostats, ones that you can tell what to do and when, have been around for a long time. However, they aren’t really any more sophisticated than timers. A “learning” thermostat, though, learns about your life and your timing by sensing when you’re in the room, what the humidity is, and much more.

Some conveniences include:

 

  • Connects to your existing home network - Convenient Wi-Fi capabilities offer a secure and reliable connection.
  • Control the temperature from anywhere - Download the free app from iTunes or GooglePlay and adjust your thermostat from your smartphone, tablet or laptop, even when you're miles away.
  • Alerts and reminders provide peace of mind - Monitors your equipment, sends service reminders and tells you if anything is not working correctly. You can also be alerted if your home's temperature gets dangerously hot or cold.
  • Accommodates your schedule and temperature preferences - Within a week the Nest thermostat starts programming itself to the temperatures you like. Away mode automatically switches to an energy-efficient temperature when you're not home.
  • Dynamic sensor capabilities - Different features follow your activity, manage humidity, and keep an eye on the weather to provide a custom climate for your home.
  • Review your energy history and report - Track how much energy you've used and follow tips that will help you conserve. Make an energy-saving temperature adjustment and the Nest Leaf will notify you immediately.
  • Extra protection in an emergency - Your Nest Thermostat links with Nest Protect (additional product), to automatically turn off your gas furnace if carbon monoxide is present.

 

The Nest Thermostat is a complex piece of computer technology. While setting it up can be a DIY project, to get the most from your thermostat and take advantage of the entire feature set, it makes sense to let a professional install it. The thermostat is not only connected to the furnace and air conditioner, but it needs to be configured properly to make sure your rooms are as comfortable as possible. 

Installing Nest Products

Installing Nest products requires a professional. These devices are well made and can be installed by yourself, but to get the most from them, have a professional make sure they’re set up correctly.

Nest has been innovating the items that we all have in our homes already. Take advantage of technology to make your world safer and easier to manage.

This connected thermostat is another component of a fully automated smart home and will be a technological convenience you enjoy daily.  Call Digital Inceptions at (732) 455-2475 or contact us online for a consultation today!
