Product information

It’s time to rethink your heating system. Heating makes up over 60% of your energy bill - about £1300 a year - but heating controls have scarcely changed in decades. The Nest Learning Thermostat is a programmer and thermostat in one

The Nest Thermostat learns your schedule to programme itself, notices when you’re gone and automatically turns down the heat, and can be controlled from your mobile. You’ll see how much heat you use every day and get an Energy Report every month to track and manage your energy use. The Nest Thermostat even learns how long your home takes to heat up so you only use as much heat as you actually need.

Top features:

A programmer and thermostat in one.
For the first time, you can change the temperature, adjust your schedule and see how much energy you use from one place.

Just turn it up and down. The Nest Thermostat learns the temperatures you like and programmes itself.

Don't waste energy heating an empty home. The Nest Thermostat notices when you're away and automatically turns down the heat.

Remote control
Change the temperature from your mobile, tablet or laptop.

Energy History
The more you know, the more you can save. The Nest Thermostat shows you how much heat you use and why.

True Radiant
No more guessing. True Radiant learns how your home warms up so you only as much heat as you actually need.

Update Makes It Even Better
Nest work tirelessly to keep their customers happy, and they’ve rolled out an update to make their thermostats even better. Firstly, the Family Accounts feature lets up to 10 users manage your home with their own login. Secondly, the Home/Away Assist uses your phone’s location to boost home/away detection and make your energy usage as efficient as possible

Do I Need Wi-Fi to Use Nest?
The Nest Learning Thermostat doesn't require a Wi-Fi connection. But if you're connected, additional features are available with the Nest apps:

  • Change your current target temperature
  • Make manual adjustments to your schedule
  • Put the Nest Thermostat into Away mode
  • Update device settings
  • See current local weather conditions
  • Get automatic software updates
  • Receive a monthly Energy Report
There are other features that require Wi-Fi too. Since the Nest Thermostat gets weather information over Wi-Fi, weather-aware features (such as Auxiliary heat lockout) are only available when the Nest Thermostat is connected. And the Nest Thermostat updates the date, time and time zone over Wi-Fi, so you might need to enter the date and time manually if the Nest Thermostat isn't connected.

Q & As

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! I cannot go back to a standard thermostat any more. It takes a few days to recognise the household routine but once set you don't have to worry with changing the setting. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and effective Relatively simple to fit and very easy to set up once installed. 02 February 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Incredibly difficult to set up The system consists of a heat link that connects to the boiler and a wireless thermostat that communicates both to the Internet and to the heat link. The heat link provides the signals to the boiler based on the thermostat. However if the connection between the thermostat and the heat link does not function then the whole system is essentially useless. I have spent 2 days trying to get the system to function, reading through every online forum that I could find seeing many other people with the same problem. The solutions to get this to work are farcical to say the least and the manufacturers have failed tomresolve the issue. To be honest this system is NOT worth purchasing as the wireless connection is a significant failure. 08 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nest thermostat Excellent. Had an impossibly hard to understand thermostat before and this is no comparison. We both work shifts so a schedule doesn't really work for us. Just turn on the heating as leave work and the house is toasty when we get in. Perfect. All the other features are great and easily turn off and onable as required. No regrets with the purchase. Took electrician about half an hour to fit the receiver to the boiler and the thermostat just stands on a shelf. 24 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nest thermostat The Gen 2 Nest thermostat is a revolution in awesome technology. From your Smart phone, anywhere in the world you can look at the temperature in your home AND adjust it. Can't wait for Gen 3 to come into availability because that will control your hot water too, and the stat can be view across the room due to its 'far-sight' technical wizardry. Best thing since sliced bread 24 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulously clever, exceeded (already high) expectations I bought this to make adjusting the temperature much easier but also to explore the remote access and learning features. Within a week the Nest thermostat had worked out how long it takes the radiators to heat the house and how long they continue to radiate heat after the boiler stops burning - massive cuts in total amount of fuel used. The other auto-learn features (eg. auto-away) also continue to impress hugely. 24 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great product poor customer service by Nest Decided to buy the thermostat after speaking to Nest and specifically asking if the new model was due out soon. I was told nothing new planned for UK launch in the near future. A matter of weeks later the new model gets launched so I've now got the old model and paid for it to be installed. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pricey but good! This thermostat was recommended by my central heating engineer after my previous wireless thermostat stopped working. I wasn't sure whether I really needed a wifi enabled thermostat but I now really love the functionality of this product. Being able to remotely control the heating via the app on my phone or iPad is great. I also love how quickly this thermostat "learnt" my routine and now modifies the temperature and turns heating on/off based on my usual pattern of use. I also really like the "auto away" function. I had a slight problem downloading the app to my phone so emailed the Nest Support service. They are based on the USA. Their customer service was second to none (as one would expect from an American company). They were so helpful via email and even called me to clarify the issue. So all in all, I am really pleased with this product but it is too soon to tell if it will impact on my energy bill hence unable to definitively award 5 stars in this review! 10 November 2015
