The power of Nest Sense.

Nest personalizes its features for you. After it learns about you and your home, Nest Sense™ automatically balances comfort and energy savings.


Nest programs itself in about a week. It creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you’ve made and continually adapts to your changing life.


After you’ve left the house, Nest senses you’ve gone and automatically adjusts the temperature to avoid heating or cooling an empty home.


In many homes the thermostat is in direct sunlight, causing it to warm up. Nest automatically adapts to direct sunlight so it reads and sets the right temperature.

The Leaf

Want to know if you’re saving energy when you change the temp? The Nest Leaf appears when you turn Nest to a temperature that's energy efficient. It guides you in the right direction.


Time-to-Temperature lets you know how long it will take to reach your target heating or cooling temperature.


Airwave automatically turns off the AC a few minutes early, but keeps the fan running. Your AC runs less while your home stays just as cool.


Auto-Tune finds ways to lower your energy bill while keeping you comfortable, then automatically does them for you. It powers two Nest services: Rush Hour Rewards and Seasonal Savings.

Cool to Dry

Homeowners in very humid areas need help keeping their homes healthy and dry. Now Nest can use your air conditioner to dehumidify your home, especially when you’re away.

Personalized for any system

Nest knows one size doesn’t fit all. So you tell Nest what system you have and System Match will turn on specific features to keep you comfortable and help you save.

Which system do you have?

Conventional forced air Heat pump with AUX Dual fuel Radiant

Forced air systems that blow air out vents become less efficient when their filters are clogged. They can also be hard to predict—as the weather changes, the time it takes to heat or cool your home changes too.

Filter Reminders

Nest reminds you to change your air filter based on how many hours your heat or AC has run. A clean filter can cut 5% off your heating or cooling bill.


Get the temperature you want when you want it. If your schedule says 22° at 6:00, Early-On will start heating or cooling early so it’ll be 22° when your alarm rings at 6:00.

Heat pumps are more efficient than conventional systems, but they’re often paired with high-energy auxiliary heat strips that are three times as expensive. Most thermostats don’t use AUX heat efficiently and drive up your bills.

Heat Pump Balance

Heat Pump Balance optimizes how often you need to use expensive auxiliary heat. Just choose whether you want more comfort or more savings, and Heat Pump Balance will automatically adjust when AUX comes on.

Dual fuel systems use two different sources of heat—like a furnace and a heat pump. These systems are usually forced air and also benefit from Filter Reminders and Early-On.

Radiant systems are very efficient, but they don’t have the right controller. They take a long time to heat up and cool down, so it’s impossible for most thermostats to maintain an even heat.

True Radiant

True Radiant gives you a predictable schedule and even heat. No more frustrating guessing about what temperature to set when.

How does Nest learn?

Turn it up, turn it down. Nest learns about you and your home to save you energy and keep you comfortable. Watch the video to find out how.

Senses and learns from you.

The Nest Thermostat integrates information from its sensors and the outside weather.

Senses and learns from you.

Activity sensors

Nest’s activity sensors have a 150° wide-angle view. That range enables Nest to activate Auto-Away in 90% of homes.

Humidity sensor

Nest shows you indoor humidity and can manage your whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier.

Weather aware

Nest uses its Wi-Fi connection to keep an eye on current weather conditions and forecasts so it can understand how the outside temperature affects your energy use.

Temperature sensors

Three temperature sensors track your home’s temperature and how quickly it changes.

Works with your Nest Protect.

The Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm connects to your thermostat. So if the carbon monoxide alarm goes off, your Nest Thermostat automatically turns off your gas furnace – a possible source of poisonous carbon monoxide leaks.* The Nest Protect activity sensors also improve Auto-Away.

Automatic CO shutoff requires an active WiFi Internet connection at the time of the event and relies on having both Nest Protect and Nest Learning Thermostat added to the same home in a Nest Account. This feature is not part of Underwriters Laboratories testing and listing. See How the Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect work together in a carbon monoxide emergency >

HVAC Compatibility

According to our online compatibility checker, Nest works with 95% of 24V heating and cooling systems, including gas, electric, forced air, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar, and geothermal

  • Heating: 1, 2 and 3 stages (W1, W2, W3)
  • Cooling: 1 and 2 stages (Y1, Y2)
  • Heat pump: with auxiliary and emergency heat (O/B, AUX, E)
  • Humidifier or dehumidifier (HUM, DEHUM)
  • Fan (G)
  • Power (C, Rh, Rc)

The Nest Learning Thermostat is designed to work even if your home doesn’t have a common “C” wire, but installing a new C wire may be required in rare cases.

If you have dual fuel or a whole-home humidifier/dehumidifier we strongly recommend that you use professional installation.
