We are in 2015 people, and while we may not be commuting to work in our flying cars and wearing anti gravity boots technology rules these days. I am constantly in awe of how advanced it has become and what it can do for us. Right now I am thinking about Best Buy and some of the awesome gear they offer, like my new Nest Learning Thermostat-the new third generation version, a sleeker, more streamlined device with a crisper display than previous versions. It makes for easy temperature control in my home, which makes for a happier family.
The Nest Learning Thermostat was so easy to set up- simply connect to your Wifi network, and download the free app that is available on iTunes or Google play. From there you can manage home temps from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Genius right?
This is an amazing way to harness technology and save money on your heating and cooling bills. Set it up with your schedule and preference of temperature levels. Instead of running the heat all day or coming home to an empty house you can have it warm up the temp just before you come home. On average The Nest can save 10%-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
An even cooler feature is that if you don’t want to set preferences- after about a week of use The Nest Learning Thermostat will begin programming itself, adjusting your homes temperature based on your schedule. When you get out of bed every morning at 6:00 a.m. and turn your heat up a bit it remembers and after a few days it will begin to warm your home before you step out of bed even! Leave for work and it turns on energy saving settings.
To make your smart thermostat even better you may also want to set up the Nightgear Nighthawk DST Router and DST Adapter with included Geek Squad, available exclusively at Best Buy. It is not just great for working with the thermostat but it also by putting it in an area of your home that is normally a “dead zone” you can improve your wifi for the many things you probably have running through your router like laptops, tablets, computers, and smart phones. It also comes with one year of Geek Squad via phone & web, 24/7. You can run up to 10 devices through the Nightgear Nighthawk DST Router.
