SAVE ENERGY WITH NEST: Nest introduces the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat. With four beautiful colors to choose from and an easy to read display, this thermostat will help make your home not only smart but energy efficient. With just a few manual adjustments, the Nest Thermostat can learn your habits and start to save you money by automatically adjusting the temperature.
READ THE DISPLAY FROM ACROSS THE ROOM: The Nest Thermostat does something new. Itâs called Farsight, and it lights up to show you the temperature, weather or time. You can even choose a digital or analog clock face. Farsight is big and bright on the beautiful display â you can see it from across the room.
A STYLE FOR EVERY HOME: The Nest Learning Thermostat now comes in four fantastic colors; Copper, Stainless Steel, Black, and White. Choose copper to add a warm touch. Stainless steel is perfect for a classic, versatile look. Black blends in with dark walls and stylish decor. And white looks great in simple, modern homes.
WORKS WITH NEST: Nest has worked hard to design thoughtful devices to help keep you safe and secure. Nest devices not only communicate with each other but also with the other smart devices around your home. Your Nest Secure can use your smart light bulbs to help get your attention in the event of an emergency; your smart washer and dryer can take the data from Nest and run the next load of laundry when energy demand is low. Look for the Works with Nest badge and let Nest handle the rest.
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE A NEST HOME: We love home. Itâs the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. Some things beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things weâve learned to ignore. We think these things should do more. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. Thatâs how weâre creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.

The Nest Learning Thermostat is here to help make your home work for you. Using smart learning technology, the Nest Learning Thermostat can learn what you like and automatically adjust itself to your comfort level. After a couple of days of manual adjustments, the Nest Learning Thermostat can anticipate when you would want to turn the temperature up, to help keep you cozy in the morning, and set the temperature down as you head to bed. The Thermostat also works in combination with your Nest Cellphone App. Remotely change the temperature so that your house can be warm when you come home or, turn the temperature down to save energy while you’re away. The Nest Thermostat is just one part of your heating and cooling system. But it can keep an eye on the rest of it. Youâll get an alert on your phone if thereâs something wrong â like temperatures are so low your pipes could burst. And if it looks like your furnace is acting up, the Nest Thermostat will send you an alert. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. Thatâs how weâre creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.

Purchase Price: $211.44
ComEd Utility Company Rebate: $100.00
After purchasing a new home and watching our utility bills rise for a while I vowed to change all of that in 2015. I began to purchase LED light bulbs as a start, new energy efficient appliances, and then September 2015 the Nest 3rd Generation was released which caught my attention. I asked my father in-law who had the Nest 2nd Generation for information and he had nothing negative to say about it so I was sold. After comparing it to other competitors I was hooked on this one due to the ease of installation, good reviews, and $100 electric company rebate (ask your local energy company).
Do not be intimidated to install this on your own it’s not hard. The instructions it comes with and YouTube to be on the safe side did it for me. Before installing please make sure to shut your homes power panel breaker prior to uninstalling the old thermostat and installing the Nest (be safe). Take a picture of the way the wires were installed on your old thermostat prior to uninstalling. In doing so this will ensure that your connections are connected correctly. Test your wires one more time prior to uninstalling to make sure no power is running (avoid being shocked or damaging anything). I did not use/install the base-plate (pictures shown) because I wanted a modern, sleek, and clean look. The body and display (40% increase) of the 3rd generation is slightly larger then that of the 2nd generation. If you have children you can lock it so that a child touching it can not change or disrupt your temperature or any of your settings. The stainless steel dial is very smooth and allows you to navigate through the settings with ease.
It takes the Nest a couple of days to remember what temperatures you like when you are home and at what times you are home. After a couple of days Nest will ask you if you want it to automatically go into “Away Mode” when it senses you are not home (you decide opt in or opt out – I opted in). I recommend opting in to “Away Mode” for better energy savings. You can control when you are home and when you are away during those few days or if you opt out of “Away Mode” then you control it all. Smartphone application is free and easy to use.
The new “Far-Sight” feature is awesome and can catch me at approximately 10 feet away even in the dark. When Nest detects any motion it will illuminate with what the current temperature is. This is how it can tell if you are home or not and can automatically place itself in “Away Mode” for energy savings.
Being able to control everything from the application on my smartphone itself is so awesome (fan, cooling/heating mode, humidity level, away/home mode, set a schedule, history, etc.). Nest will remind you when you should change your air filters on your furnace because it can base it upon how many times it turns on and off.
Significant drop in energy consumption can be seen on my gas bill after month 1. Due to this my father purchased the item as well and has no complaints thus far.
UPDATE: 15FEB17 Still own the item with no problems.
If you are doing research and thinking of purchasing it – just do it! It is paying for itself in savings thus far. Highly recommended! (PICTURES ATTACHED) “Was this review helpful to you?” if it was please select “YES” below. Thank you! 🙂

A month later Nest did reimburse me for the furnace tech visit. They have integrity. Nice to see today.
I am changing my rating to five stars, because with that problem fixed, the Nest thermostat is great!
[Original review follows]
I purchased two of the 3rd generation Nest thermostats yesterday and installed them. Generally speaking I like them, but I bumped into two problems that you’ll read about in other reviews.
1. To charge its batteries, the Nest needs a C (common) wire hooked up; otherwise it tries to charge itself whenever the heating or cooling system is running — the only time current is passing through it. When I hooked one of my Nests up, it said it needed to charge its batteries, and even though my house had no need for cooling or heating, it turned my HVAC on for hours to charge its batteries. I researched, found out what the problem was, and hooked up a C wire (luckily my HVAC controller had a place to hook up a C wire and my thermostat wires each had three extra wires in them). Good luck to anyone without an extra wire to use.
2. Much more annoyingly, Nest refuses (refuses!) to allow the thermostat to display the current temperature. During the summer, I don’t have central air. If I turn the heating system off, Nest’s “Farsight” feature will only display, in big letters, “OFF.” It will not display the temperature. If I turn the heating system on and set the thermostat to something low, like 60 degrees, so the heat won’t ever turn on, the Nest displays “60” rather than the actual temperature in the room. This is stupid! Why should I have to wall-mount a thermometer next to the Nest to replicate its thermometer, just because the Nest programmers won’t offer the option to show the current temperature? According to other reviews, Nest is willfully refusing to offer this because they think the set temperature is what should be shown. I think they have every right to show it by default, but the user should be able to pick what they want — and in my opinion, not being able to see the room temperature is very, very stupid. I’m inclined to return the two thermostats to Nest unless I hear that they’re going to issue a software update to fix this. At the moment I’m emailing their customer service and they have not been helpful at all so far.
If I could see the current temperature, I would give the Nest five stars (even with the need for the C wire, because it wasn’t hard to hook up).
In the pictures below, my room was 71 degrees.
