The app is user-friendly, lets you change settings quickly and has detailed tutorials to help you install the unit in your home.
In our tests, it took around 17 minutes to install the Nest Learning Thermostat, which was the shortest installation of any product we tested.
It analyzes your habits over time and collects other environmental data so it can adapt to your schedule and save you money.
This thermostat is easy to install, and it is compatible with countless smart home products – it connects with more smart devices than any other thermostat we tested.
Nest covers this product with a two-year warranty, which is average for most thermostats.
(The longest warranty in our reviewed products is three years.) This thermostat costs around 0, making it one of the most expensive products in this category, though we believe the Nest is well worth the cost.
We set three guidelines while choosing thermostats to test: First, they had to connect to a Wi-Fi network, and by extension, use a smartphone app.
You'll find our thoughts on these products in our Nest Thermostat E review.Amazon's Alexa service lets you adjust the temperature with a quick command, without using the ecobee app or touchscreen.We like the remote sensor because it lets the ecobee4 track temperatures in rooms other than where the thermostat is installed.Like Nest, ecobee4 has automatic scheduling features and monthly reports that look at your usage patterns, though there's a little more setup involved whereas Nest's is more automatic.Setting up this schedule isn't difficult, and it has most of the same features as Nest.Our installation tests went smoothly because the ecobee mobile app shows every step and guides the entire process.
