Google came out with the latest version of the Nest Thermostat at the end of last year. While it was already a tempting gadget for those looking to save energy and make their homes smarter, Google has sweetened the deal with a thermostat price of $ 130. It has been on sale several times since then, but now you can pick it up snow color option for $ 88, which is 32 percent of its normal price and a record low. In addition, u Snow thermostat with a Trim Kit it’s on sale for $ 103, or $ 12 less than other Trim Kit packages.

Compared to previous Nest thermostats, this it’s leaner, has a touch-sensitive board and a mirror display that looks great all the time and wakes you up automatically when you approach it. In addition to looking better than most conventional thermostats, the Nest Thermostat is even smarter, allowing you to control it through the controls on your device, the Google Home app and even with the Assistant or Alexa voice commands. The device itself also has a redesigned controller view, which facilitates quick regulation of the temperature in your home.
But automatic features are probably the biggest selling points for a device like the Nest Thermostat. Recognize when you leave home and will automatically enter Eco mode, keeping your home at a specific temperature until you return when you raise or lower the temperature according to your preferences. This Nest Thermostat also has Finders Finder, a feature that continuously looks for ways to reduce your energy bill throughout the year. For example, the device will suggest regulations based on weather conditions – think about reducing your home’s heat use during a particularly hot winter – that you can choose to accept to potentially lower your energy costs. Although a smart thermostat like Nest takes a little longer to install than a standard smart light bulb, it’s a good entry point into the world of smart homes – and it’s even better when it’s on sale like that.
