Google is aiming to make your smart home a little cosier with the release of a new version of its Nest smart thermostat.
The third generation of Nest packs in a larger, more intelligent screen and is able to recognise your usage habits and set up a personalised ‘schedule’ in just a few days, and can be controlled directly from your smartphone.
Available to buy for US customers from today for $249 (£166), the device will see a UK launch soon.
There is also an updated user interface to make it easier to read temperatures, alerts and messages, and a new feature called Furnace Heads-Up, which uses diagnostics to give advance notice about possible problems with a customer’s heating system.
The third generation Nest Thermostat also has a slightly thinner profile to fit more neatly into your room, and fully integrates with the Nest Protect and Nest Cam units also released by the company.
