You have probably heard of smart metres and if you have, then you’ve most likely heard of a nest system.
Maybe you have considered having one installed in your home. We have put together some useful information on what it is and how it benefits you.
A smart thermostat is no longer just a control panel for your heating. They are equipped with sensors and algorithms to help benefit how you use it. Plus, you can control them from your mobile device.
What are the benefits?
By using a smart thermostat like the Nest Pro enable you to create a schedule across the different temperature zones of your home. The Nest estimates you will save 10-12% on your heating bill.
They can be equipped with sensors to detect when there’s movement in the house. This allows it to monitor when your household is active in the home and makes scheduling easier.
By utilising it’s movement sensors your thermostat will ‘learn’ and remember when people are most active. This means it can adapt the schedule more effectively and save you money. It also means you will return home to a warm and cosy house.
The hand phone application allows you to control your heating on the move. Last minute appointment? It’s no problem with the app, just dial down your heating and schedule it to kick back in before you return home.
Staying away for a few days and a sudden drop in temperature occurs? You will receive a warning straight to your mobile alerting you on how to avoid a burst pipe. Nest Protect also provide Co2 detectors. These will automatically shut down your heating systems and alert you if there’s a rise in Co2.
Nest have other smart devices available. This means your thermostat can connect with and learn from other home devices.
