Explore your Nest Thermostat.

  1. Farsight

    When Nest spots you across the room, it lights up beautifully to show you the time, temperature or weather.

  1. Big, sharp display

    Everything you see is bright and crisp.

  2. Ring

    The thin, sleek steel ring reflects the color of your wall, so the Nest Thermostat can fit beautifully into any room.

  1. Time-to-Temperature

    The Nest Thermostat learns how long your home takes to heat up and cool down.

  2. Nest Leaf

    Look for the Leaf every time you adjust the temperature – it tells you that you’re saving energy. Nest will count up all your Leafs and let you know how many you collect each month in your Home Report.

  1. Quick View

    Press the display and turn the ring. You’ll see a summary of what your thermostat is up to and you can reach Settings, Energy History, or your schedule.

  2. Weather

    Nest tracks the weather so it can automatically adjust to help you stay comfortable or save energy.

  1. It’s more accurate with more sensors.

    It learns about your home. Ten temperature sensors track the temperature in your home and how quickly it changes.

  2. It’s more accurate with more sensors.

    It’s not too bright at night or too dim during the day. Ambient light sensors adjust how the screen lights up.

  3. It’s more accurate with more sensors.

    It looks to see if anyone’s home. The activity sensors have a 150° wide-angle view.

  4. It’s more accurate with more sensors.

    Is your home too muggy? A humidity sensor shows you indoor humidity so Nest can manage your whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier.
