What I’ve Got: Nest Learning Thermostat

The Nest Learning Thermostat adapts to the household preferences of the user. It is a very human device in its interactions: it remembers the user’s thermostat adjustments and slowly builds a customized daily schedule (that it adjusts by day of the week). The Auto Away feature uses a motion sensor to determine if anyone is home; it turns down the system when no one is present to save energy. Even details such as a red background for heating and a blue background for cooling – which displays when users change the set temperature – ensure that users understand intuitively the no-button design. The product seamlessly integrates with a smartphone app; the wi-fi enabled features allow users to change settings from the road. For its ability to integrate a clean interface, an intelligent and learning algorithm, and a simple user setup, Nest is a desirable product.
