Second-Generation Nest Learning Thermostat: Refined Design and Increased Compatibility
The second-generation Nest Learning Thermostat is 20 percent thinner and has a new all-stainless steel ring that mirrors your wall color or pattern to create a chameleon effect and blend into any décor even more effectively. Now compatible with 95 percent of low-voltage heating and cooling systems, the second-generation Nest thermostat extends support to two-stage cooling, three-stage heating, and emergency heat for heat pumps, as well as whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers.To help you get the most out of your system and save even more energy, the Nest Learning Thermostat includes:
System Match — Almost all thermostats are made for conventional forced air systems, but not all systems are conventional. Energy-efficient systems need special control to help them save energy while providing comfort. With System Match, Nest activates custom features depending on what system you have to keep you comfortable and help you save energy.
Early-On — For forced air systems, get the temperature you want when you want it. If your schedule says 72°F at 6:00 AM, Early-On will start heating or cooling early so it’ll be 72°F when your alarm rings at 6:00 AM. Nest also calculates the health of your system’s air filter – based on system runtime – and reminds you to change it when needed to maintain efficiency.
True Radiant — No more turning on the radiant heat at 4:00 AM so you can be warm by morning. True Radiant delivers predictable comfort with all the energy savings you expect from a radiant system
Heat Pump Balance — Nest’s exclusive Heat Pump Balance feature optimizes how often you need to use expensive auxiliary (AUX) heat. Just choose whether you want more comfort or more savings, and Heat Pump Balance will automatically adjust when AUX heat comes on
Enhanced Auto-Away and Auto-Schedule - Nest personalizes the Auto-Away™ start time for each home and can now enter Auto-Away as soon as 30 minutes after you’ve left the house. This Nest-exclusive feature is active in more than 90 percent of Nest homes. Thanks to Auto-Schedule™, 99 percent of Nests have schedules that match their owners’ lives. With Nest software v3.0, Auto-Schedule can now learn your schedule in the Heat • Cool mode (formerly known as Range mode).
Broader mobile support — More than 90 percent of connected Nest owners use the remote control feature, so in addition to support on computer web browsers, apps for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones, Nest now supports Android tablets, including Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire.
Additional languages — You can now select English, French or Spanish as your default language on Nest and the Nest apps.
