Google’s Nest smart thermostat has gotten a complete redesign that includes a slimmer design and higher resolution screen.
Google Nest 3rd generation thermostat does something new with something they like to call Farsight. With Farsight as you walk into the room the thermostat lights up and shows you the temperature and time. It’s very bright and big so you can easily see it from across the room.
“With more temperature sensors, the Nest Thermostat is more accurate. So it’s even better at learning about your home. It gets to know how it heats and cools, or how drafty it is, and adjusts accordingly. And if your furnace is acting up, the Nest Thermostat will let you know. Most heating and forced air furnaces have an automatic shutoff to avoid overheating. The Nest Thermostat is always looking out for shutoff patterns that indicate a persistent problem with your furnace. If anything’s out of the ordinary, every heating or cooling season you’ll get a Furnace Heads-Up message on your phone or tablet and the thermostat screen. And you’ll also get a notice in your monthly Home Report.” their blog said today.
The 3rd Generation Google Nest is available now for $249 from nest.com.
