We had to start the list with the original Nest thermostat. There are many Nest thermostat options, but we love this one for its affordability and ease of use. While the original Nest thermostat has many helpful features such as its Amazon Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT, and Samsung SmartThings capability, there are a few faults: it isn’t remote sensor compatible and doesn’t adjust your temperature based on your common activities and patterns. You can purchase it for $115 here.
If you’re looking for an even more affordable option than above, look no further than the Sensibo Sky Smart thermostat. The Sensibo Sky thermostat is great for those with older homes that rely on window air conditioners. Our favorite feature is the geofencing, which controls when the thermostat turns on and off. In other words, as soon as you arrive back home, your AC will turn on and begin cooling. You can purchase the Sensibo Sky thermostat for $109 here.
Nest Learning Thermostat v.3
As mentioned above, Nest has many smart thermostat options ranging in price points. The Nest Learning Thermostat v.3 is on the pricier side, but there’s a reason for that. The circular design in your choice of brass, steel, copper, and white, the large display, and its ability to learn your patterns make this a great option if you’re willing to splurge a bit. You can purchase the Nest Learning Thermostat v.3 for $209 here.
