Why People Love Nest

People love when things happen automatically, so it’s not a surprise to see more and more homeowners looking for ways to create a “Smart Home.” With Google Home, Amazon Alexa and more, people have to do less and less to keep their home running efficiently.

One of the first smart appliances to hit the market was the Nest, and it's suite of products is still some of the most popular smart home devices going. If you ask us, it's pretty easy to understand why.

Nest Learning Thermostat

The Nest Learning Thermostat was the first Nest product to hit the market, and has been helping homeowners save energy and money since its initial release. Studies have found that the Nest Thermostat saves an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills!

Some favourite features include:

  • Auto-scheduling: As you use it, the Nest Thermostat learns the temperatures you like and programs itself.
  • Remote use: Nest Thermostats connect to wifi to allow you to change the temperature remotely from your smart phone, tablet or computer.
  • Save energy: Watch for the Nest Leaf to choose a temperature that will save energy.
  • Auto-away: The Nest Thermostat will automatically turn itself down to avoid heating of cooling an empty house when you are away.

Nest Protect Smoke and CO Alarm

The Nest Protect is a smoke and CO alarm the likes of which you've never seen before. The smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detector looks for fast-burning fires, smoldering fires, and carbon monoxide, literally speaking up when there's a problem. It will even message your phone if you aren't home!

Some favourite features include:

  • Alerts to your phone: Get a text message when there's a problem at your home or if your batteries are running low.
  • Know what and where: Nest protect speaks up if there's smoke or CO and tells you where it is so you know what to do next.
  • Light your way: The Nest Protect light is usually turned off, but when you walk underneath it, the path light will light your way.
  • Remote hush: Burned dinner? Quiet the false alarm from your phone — no more airing the smoke out of the house.

Nest Cam

The Nest Cam is a home security favourite. The camera looks for motion and listens for sound, sending an alert to your phone if something's up.

Some favourite features include:

  • Easy setup: The Nest Cam is plug and play! Just plug it in, download the app and set it up from your smart phone.
  • Alerts to your phone: The Nest Cam sends a message to your phone if there's motion or sound in your home when you're away.
