Smart thermostats have been around for a while now. In fact, Google Nest was actually one of the first companies to introduce the technology — now they have a new product.

By now, most of us know the value of a smart thermostat, even if we don’t have one yet. They can save energy by automatically turning the temperature up or down when we leave the house. In addition, they allow us to can control them from anywhere with our smartphones and other devices.

The new Google Nest Thermostat takes that a step further by offering voice control through the Google Home app so you can change the temperature without getting off the couch or out of bed. Just say, “Hey Google, turn up the heat” — I could really get used to that!

It also looks out for your heating and cooling system. If something doesn’t seem right, it can send an alert or it can send you helpful reminders when it’s time to change your filter.

In addition to Google, the Nest also works with Alexa on other smart devices and it’s easy to install yourself — usually in 30 minutes or less.
