Nest Learning Thermostat

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.

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

Nest Learning Thermostat 4.1 5 20 20
NEST - Solidly built, and easy to operate I was pleasantly surprised with the build quality of this product, the NEST thermostat has only been running for just over a month and I'm happy to report complete success, I would recommend this as one of the cleverest additions to any home. My wife was sceptical due to the cost, but it's already is saving money, by auto setting the house condition to "away" when it doesn't detect anyone at home, but still knows when to switch the heating on for when we normally get home, or auto starting the boiler if we get home unexpectantly, it has now learned how long it takes to heat the house, and now provides an estimate of how long till the desired temperature is reached. I have also received an email from NEST with some stats, I'll need to see these over a few months to determine how useful they are. Best smart-home purchase ever. 16 December 2014
Hyped Rubbish Don't buy, not smart. Refuses to pre-heat in the morning (works fine PM) so our house is colder now when we get up than it used to be. No support from Nest despite posting problem nearly every day. Get Tado or Hive. I wish I had. 15 December 2014
Love it! In idea whether it saves money yet. Took quite a while to understand how to use it, and I'm not sure even now that I get he best out of it, but it is the most convenient, responsive thermostat! I really do love it just for that. 10 December 2014
Fantastic! I never thought I had a need for a smart thermostat but owning one has changed my mind. Very simple to setup and use, completely intuitive and the web and iphone apps are brilliant. I installed this myself and had no real issues but I'm fairly good at DIY. No harder than changing a light fitting but you will be dealing with mains electricity so if you're not sure pay for the installation too. Once intalssed and connected to your wifi which is very easy to do, it's as simple as setting the required temperature by turning the outer ring. After a week of using it it starts to learn your routine and checking it from work it seems to be very accurately, automatically setting to away shortly after we leave in the morning. You can set your own schedule if you prefer but we leave and return at similar times each day and it knows when we are due back and gets the house warm ready for you. You can overide at anytime either at the thermostat or using the app/website which is great when returning from a weekend away - just turn the heating on when you're on your way home and the house is toasty when you arrive. Away temperature can be set to any temperature you want so the house will never get too cold if you have pets etc. In short I would highly recommend it. It looks fantastic, easy to use and should save you money - you also get an email each month to tell you your energy use. How much money it will save only time will tell but it's looking good so far compared to last years meter readings. 18 November 2014
Fantastic This is the future. Mine was installed about 6 weeks ago by a local bolier engineer without any problems and it really is a great product. The auto learning and auto away features are great. I love the "time to temperature" function, it's easy to adjust (either home or away) and I'm now using IFTTT to enhance the switch on times and the thermostat now starts heating at Sunset everyday. So impressed I've also upgraded to Nest Protect. 16 November 2014
Great product This is a great thermostat. It's now learnt our schedule and how long it takes to warm up to a particular temperature. Now that the colder weather's coming in it's really coming into its own and will likely pay for itself over the next year. I installed it myself, I'm just an average DIYer and once I got my head around what everything did it was quite straight forward. 02 November 2014
Beautiful product for the living room Purchased in it's currently just a piece of jewelry for the living room as I've not realised energy savings yet. Don't try to install this yourself, it's complex. It will be more interesting in the winter. 07 June 2014
Interesting Technology Once set up correctly, I did it myself which was not too bad ...but not "easy" ... I needed to delete the pairing and manually repair the nest and the heat link. Once it was up and running the device takes care of itself and works very well so far... I guess we will see once we have a a long time with the heating on next winter ... it should have figured the "Auto Away" routine by then. it will be interesting to see where this platform goes... hopefully they will add other items and integrate to the rumoured iOS8 home automation platform... then we will start to see really interesting things with geolocation programming. 27 May 2014
