Smart thermostats have become a must for homeowners. But which device is the best? Robinson Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can merge multiple home devices into the one convenient app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also produces smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the device can learn your customs, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it understands when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop touching your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on holiday, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any adjustments through the app.
You can purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on what area you’re in, or for $250 for just the thermostat.
The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just some simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should change the air filter in your furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The thermostat even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your behaviors, similar to the Nest, but a nice feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located centrally in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 understand if you’re really away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, people who love reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program isolated zones and receive reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.
Right now you can get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
