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. Bigger, sharper display

    The screen is 40% larger. And everything you see is brighter and crisper.

  2. Ring

    Turn the ring to adjust the temperature up or down. The thin, sleek ring now comes in stainless steel, white, black and copper.

  1. Time-to-Temperature

    The Nest Thermostat learns how long your home takes to heat up and cool down. So you know cranking up the heat to 80° won’t warm up the house any faster.

  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.

We’re not the only ones who want you to save.

We partner with energy providers to spread savings around. With their help, you can get a rebate on your Nest Thermostat. And even more rewards for savings throughout the year.

  • Rebates

    Some energy companies send you a $249 Nest Thermostat at no cost when you sign up for certain plans. Others give you an instant $100 rebate. And many offer traditional mail‑in rebates.

  • Seasonal Savings

    As the weather changes, the Nest Thermostat can help you save by making small adjustments to the temperature in your schedule.

  • Rush Hour Rewards

    The Nest Thermostat can help you save energy during peak hours. And your energy company will pay you for it.

  • Time of Savings

    When energy is most expensive, your Nest Thermostat slightly tweaks the temperature and still keeps you comfy.
