Meet the 3rd gen Nest Learning Thermostat

People love the Nest Learning Thermostat because it saves energy. In the UK, it won the H&V News award for Domestic H&V Product of the Year. In Benelux, The Nest Thermostat was honoured by Tweakers in its Best Products Awards. And most importantly, since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved over 4 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide.*


But every country is different. So is every home. And even every heating system. That’s why we designed the new 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat for Europe to work even harder to make every home cosy and save energy.*

Hot water control 
Now you can control your hot water tank from the Nest Learning Thermostat. It comes with a schedule already set up for you, but you can always adjust it from the Nest app. For weekend visitors or extra shower time, you can give your hot water a boost when you need it. And when you’re away for a few days, Auto-Away turns off your hot water so it can help save energy. Why keep it on when you’re not even home?


OpenTherm technology 
Nest now uses OpenTherm to enable two-way communication between compatible boilers and the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat. The Nest Learning Thermostat continues to get better over time through software updates, and the addition of OpenTherm technology will support new features to deliver even more comfort in the future.

New design 
With a bigger, sharper display and a slimmer, sleeker design, the Nest Thermostat is more beautiful than ever. A great new feature, Farsight, shows you the temperature you’ve set or the time, big and bright on the display. It senses when you come in and lights up so you’ll see it from across the room. You can even choose an analogue or digital clock face.


The Nest Learning Thermostat is even better at learning about you and your home. It gets to know your schedule and the temperatures you like so it can program itself. It knows how long it takes for your home to warm up or cool down, depending on the temperature outside. And when you’re away, The Nest Thermostat turns itself down so you’re not heating an empty home.

You can see how much energy you use every day in your Energy History on the Nest app. Get tips and insights every month in your Home Report to help you save more. And you can control your thermostat from anywhere on your phone, laptop or tablet.

Of course, the Nest Thermostat works with other Nest products. If Nest Protect senses carbon monoxide (CO), the Nest Thermostat will shut off your heating system, a common source of CO leaks. If Nest Protect sounds an emergency alarm or gives you a Heads-Up, it can send a message to your Nest Thermostat over Wi-Fi so you can see what’s going on. And when you set your Nest Thermostat to Away, your Nest Cam can turn on automatically. It even starts recording if you have a Nest Aware subscription.

Nest connects with all kinds of products, like lights, appliances, fitness bands and even cars, to keep you comfortable and safe and help you save energy. Going on vacation? The Nest Thermostat knows when you’re away, so your lights could turn on and off as if you’re at home. That’s just one way Nest works with the things you use every day, and every day there’s something new. Just look for the Works with Nest logo.
