Nest Thermostat E review

 

E's are good, E's are good

Subtle design ; Flexible placement ; Easy install within reason

No hot water support ; No Alexa or HomeKit ; marginally cheaper than the Learning Thermostat

A supreme smart thermostat, but not necessarily the best Nest for you

Nest Thermostat E review: The smart self-install thermostat

 

The UK model of the Nest Thermostat E has more flexible placement and can be installed by yourself. Here is why it's a great option for smart heating.

Premium design ; Pre-set schedule will adapt to learn ; Simple self-install ; Easy to use

No hot water control ; No Amazon Alexa control

The Nest Thermostat E is a fantastic consideration if you're in the market for upgrading your heating system to a smart one. It won't control hot water like the more expensive, hard-wired Thermostat 3.0, but that's the trade-off for a more affordable...

Nest Thermostat E review

 

Cheaper than rivals, but just as smart. And it's available in more countries

Inexpensive vs Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Gen ; Super smart ; Awesome app

Frosted display can be hard to read ; Not compatible with some HVAC systems

The Nest Thermostat E is the affordable smart thermostat that's primed if you have a budding smart home. You can control the temperature with your smartphone and tablet, or have it auto-adjust based on your proximity to home. Yes, the display isn't as...

Nest Thermostat E review: There's a lot to like about Nest's budget option

 

The Thermostat E is a straightforward system with user-friendliness at its core

No need for professional installation ; Attractive design ; Fine-tunes your experience over time

Lacks advanced features ; No Alexa support is a shame

If you want something wired into your boiler with a few more controls, then the Nest Learning Thermostat or Honeywell Evohome systems are better, if more expensive, options.

Nest Thermostat E review

 

I've literally waited years for a more affordable Nest -- and it's finally here in the form of the $169 Thermostat E. At 80 bucks less than Nest's premium Learning Thermostat , the E excels in its simplicity.

Plastic hardware makes Nest's $169 Thermostat E more affordable, but it has most of the same smarts as the pricier Learning Thermostat.

The Thermostat E has a low-resolution screen, it doesn't support Nest's "Farsight" display and it isn't compatible with quite as many HVAC systems as the original. Nest thermostats still don't come with remote temperature sensors.

The Thermostat E is almost as smart as Nest's other model -- and all for 80 bucks less.

Nest Thermostat review: The brave new world of smart appliances looks very cool

 

Being able to control your heating remotely is amazing, and the learning features have the potential to save you money. It looks cool on your wall and it's a lot of fun showing it off.

It doesn't take advantage of the location data on your phone to turn on the heating as you approach home and it can't control the hot water on boilers with a dedicated hot water cylinder.

If you have the right sort of boiler and don't already have a thermostat, this is a great buy. Otherwise the appeal is more about the gadget lust and being able to switch on your heating from bed, but what's wrong with that?

Nest Thermostat E

 

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest.

Nest Thermostat E

 

The Nest Thermostat E offers most of the same smart features as its more expensive siblings, but it can't control complex multi-stage HVAC systems.

Reasonably priced. Easy to install. Stylish design. Works with other Nest and third-party smart home devices. Supports Alexa and Google Home voice commands and IFTTT applets.

Frosted display can be difficult to read. Does not support as many HVAC components as the Nest Learning Thermostat. No remote sensors.

With the Nest Thermostat E, you get nearly all of the same smart functionality that you get with the Nest Learning Thermostat for around $80 less. Granted, you don't get as many color choices, and the display isn't quite as sharp, but the Nest E offers...

A smart Nest thermostat for a lot less cash

 

Nest's Thermostat E looks and acts like the original -- for just $169.

Nest Thermostat E review: Plastic replaces stainless steel and glass to achieve a lower price tag

 

Nest's latest thermostat is a whole lot cheaper, but it's not boring.

The same smart and reliable performance as more expensive version ; Disappears into a white wall

It looks like the budget version of the Nest ; Doesn't display as much information as some comparably priced competitors ; Not compatible with more sophisticated HVAC systems
