Nest also learns through an array of sensors to help optimize the temperature adjustments of your home:
- Ambiant light sensor
- 3 x temperature sensors
- Motion detection sensor
Nest is also WiFi connected to the internet where it can get weather forecast for your region and prepare in consequence. Through the internet connection you can also remotely monitor your home temperature and make last minute adjustments.
Nest will improve over time as you use it more and more. No more programming, no more constantly changing the temperature. The Nest Learning Thermostat programs itself in a week to keep you comfortable and save energy.
Energy saving features like Auto-Away and Energy History will become available as Nest learns. Auto-Away turns heating and cooling down automatically when no one is home, saving energy when you don’t need it. Energy History shows you how much energy you’ve used daily.
After a few days (usually a week) Nest has made a schedule for your home. One-off temperature changes won’t confuse it, but change the temperature a couple of days in a row and Nest will catch on and adjust its schedule. Lower the temperature two Mondays in a row and Nest will remember for next week.
Use the Nest Mobile app to connect to your thermostat from a smartphone. Getting in early? Change the temperature miles from home.
If you teach Nest well, you’ll see the savings on your energy bill. And since Nest is always learning and improving, you can expect the savings to continue.
