The Nest Learning Thermostat arrived in the Geekanoids studio a few weeks back and the installation was pretty straightforward. It brings full home automation one step closer. Being able to control our lights, media recording & playback, house & smoke alarms and now the heating in our houses with this latest addition.
I love the fact that it has physical controls, so any member of the household can walk by and turn the dial to their preferred temperature. Add to this "app control too" and you are onto a winner.
The main kit comprises of everything you need to install this on most combination boilers. You get a wall mounting plate to make everything look neat & tidy, or you can sit the thermostat control on an optional stand. The Nest then learns your preferred temperature over the coming weeks, saving you money along the way.
