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

Rated 4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product Didn't know whether to buy a Nest or not.... but decided to take the plunge and buy it. Really easy to install and set up.... and ever since the house has been warm at the right times and the learning of the Nest is well under way. Monitoring the time the Nest has been heating my house across the day, I was pleasantly surprised to realise this was about a third of the time the boiler used to be running prior to fitting. I anticipate it will pay for itself in the first quarter and then after that I'll continue to save money month after month. It's well made, looks great and so easy to use. Recommend everyone to get one! 14 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Check Router Compatability I had been looking for a while at the Nest learning Thermostat before I went ahead and ordered it. I'd looked at other units such as the Hive but thought the Nest looked like a nicer system. I couldn't get professional installation (easily) where I live in Caithness, Scotland so I got a local electrical company to fit it. Installation was relatively simple and I got the heating up and running immediately. One aspect which is missing I believe is the ability to control hot water as well as heating. I would have thought this should be a standard function but it isn't so beware! The main drawback I found within hours of the system coming online was that my router wasn't compatible with the Nest. I had a 3rd generation BT hub - probably a very popular router in the UK but the Nest helpline advised my that the online functions of the thermostat would not work with this router. I was advised to upgrade the router. I believe that when you order the Nest, you should be prompted to check if you have the correct router. Other than some small teething troubles since then the Nest has been pretty reliable. 11 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good so far, hoping it will be great I had my Nest installed as part of a new heating system and so far it has lived up to expectations. Being able to turn on the heating remotely is fab and the learning feature is working well so far. I've not yet used it for long enough to know if the energy saving or reporting features will make a difference. 09 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and saves money I have been so impressed by the product. It's easy to use and with the skylark app I have reduced my hearing bill by about 20% so far so it will pay for itself in no time at all. Only negative thing is that it needs to be professionally installed but once working you will fall in love with it. So many people have commented on how good it looks as well. 17 March 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nice when it works, but catastrophic when it breaks down (often) I was taken in by the new technology. As with other glowing reviewers, I was impressed when I first took delivery of the Nest. It looks slick, seems easy to use, and offers all sort of connectivity to the Nest website, your iPhone etc. However, they just don't seem to appreciate the fact that sending updates over the internet to the device, which then fail, and cause heating to fail, is a major hassle and always seems to happen when you least expect it. We've returned once again from several days' holiday, to find the heating turned off for several days, our house cold and it's taken me yet another hour plus to restart, reconfigure and reset the device. The last time, a month ago, seemed to be caused by a firmware update which left the unit unable to draw enough power supply to maintain its charge. So, with some digging around internet forums, you need to take the thermostat off the baseplate, charge it via a micro-USB cable for an hour or so, and restart the device with all the reconfiguration (wifi/base set) connectivity that needs to be set up. We had ours professionally installed, so it's not to do with the way it's been fitted. Also the promise of sending useful heating reports to the Nest website has been empty - for some reason our Nest isn't doing this. My encounters with Nest support on the above issues has been less than productive. So, for a device that should work well, it's been a disappointment, and you can easily find another unit which does the same job (i.e. turns your heating on and off), for less money and more reliability. I'm waiting to contact John Lewis support on Monday, and hoping they'll take the unit back with a refund as the trouble I've had over the last 8 months has now reached tipping point. My plumber is keen to see the back of it too. 14 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
