The power of Nest Sense.

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

Auto-Schedule

The Nest Thermostat programs itself in about a week. It creates a personalized schedule based on the temperatures you’ve set and continually adapts to your changing life.

Auto-Away

After you leave the house, the Nest Thermostat senses you’re gone and automatically adjusts the temperature. So you don’t waste energy heating or cooling an empty home.

Safety Temperature Alerts

Get an alert on your phone if your home is too hot or cold. So you’ll know if your pipes could freeze or a pet could overheat.

Nest Leaf

The Leaf appears when you turn the Nest Thermostat to a temperature that’s energy efficient. It guides you in the right direction.

Time-to-Temperature

The Nest Thermostat learns how long it takes your home to heat up and cool down and shows you how long it will take to reach the temperature you want.

Airwave

Save on your cooling bills this summer. Airwave automatically runs the AC less when humidity in your home isn’t too high, while ensuring you stay cool.

Sunblock

If the Nest Thermostat heats up in direct sunlight, it automatically adjusts to read and set the right temperature.

Cool to Dry

If you’re in a hot, humid climate, Cool to Dry can help keep your home dry, without needing a dehumidifier.

Energy partners.

When Nest partners with your energy company, good things happen.

You may be able to get instant rebates. Or receive a Nest Thermostat at no cost. And depending on your energy provider, you may even be able to sign up for exclusive programs that help you keep on saving throughout the year.

It’s time to look forward to your energy bill.

Rush Hour Rewards

The Nest Thermostat can help you save energy during peak hours. What’s even better? Your energy company will pay you for it.

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 through 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.

Early-On

Get the temperature you want when you want it. If your schedule says 72° at 6am, Early-On starts heating or cooling in advance so it’ll be 72° when your alarm rings at 6am.

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.

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.

Heat Pump Balance

It 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.

Early-On

Get the temperature you want when you want it. If your schedule says 72° at 6am, Early-On starts heating or cooling in advance so it’ll be 72° when your alarm rings at 6am.

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

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

Always connected.

Connect the Nest Thermostat to Wi-Fi and access it from your mobile, tablet or laptop. Just download the free Nest app or go to nest.com/home to sign up for a Nest Account.

Remote control

Change the temperature, adjust your schedule and settings, and get your Energy History. From anywhere.

Weather aware

Nest uses its Wi-Fi connection to check the current weather and the forecast. So it can understand how outside temperatures affect your energy use.

Automatic updates

Your thermostat will get regular software updates as long as it’s connected to Wi-Fi.

Secure, private & reliable

Nest is completely secure and uses public key cryptography. Its security features include HTTPS, SSL, and 128-bit encryption.

Senses and learns from you.

The Nest Thermostat gathers information from its built-in sensors.

Activity sensors

Nest’s activity sensors have a 150º 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.

Temperature sensors

Three temperature sensors track the temperature in your home and how quickly it changes.

All together now.

Multiple Nests communicate with each other to help save you energy.
