* It’s time to upgrade your home to a smart thermometer
* Nest now compatible with Amazon’s Alexa for voice-activated control
* Keep your home warm during unpredictable weather
Nest, the makers of the #1 best-selling smart thermometer on Amazon (7,000+ nearly 5-star reviews !) just got a little bit more brilliant: by integrating with Amazon’s Alexa, you can save your time and energy by just telling your voice assistant to raise or lower the temperature.
With spring coming but chilly temperatures still in the air, now’s the perfect time to make the move to smart temperature control. Nest’s Learning Thermostat gets to know how warm (or cold) you like to keep your home and programs itself in about a week. When you’re out, it automatically keeps itself on low to save energy. And when you’re home, it lights up when you come near it with its amazing “Farsight” feature, so you can easily see the time or the temperature on its sleek, modern display.
As great looking as the Nest Learning Thermostat is, its real beauty is in the energy savings you’ll enjoy when you start using it. Several independent studies have shown that the Nest Learning Thermostat saved households an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
Installation doesn’t take a pro and most people put it up in a half hour or so. If you’re not controlling the Nest using Amazon’s Alexa, you can always access it to adjust the temperature in your home from anywhere, using your phone, tablet or laptop.
