What are the Best Smart Thermostats on the Market Today?

Damien McCusker

Modern technology has made home management easier and more accessible, and this extends to temperature control. Smart thermostats are learning devices that internalize your family’s habits and adjust the temperature in your home based on daily activities and needs. In addition, smart thermostats are app-enabled, meaning you can control them from your smartphone. There are several smart thermostats to choose from, and they can help keep your home more comfortable and save you money. Here are some of the top choices:

The Four Top Smart Thermostats

  1. Nest Learning Thermostat. The Nest Learning Thermostat is notable because, in addition to the temperature controls you’d expect, it also offers several smart features and can sense when people are in a room. The Nest thermostat requires 8 wires with air conditioning. Most older homes only have 2 or 3 wires available so ensure you are aware of this before purchasing.
  2. Honeywell Prestige IAQ. Honeywell has a long history in thermostat manufacturing and designs dating back more than 100 years. The Prestige IAQ has features to make your life at home more comfortable with easily read color display and programming.
  3. Ecobee Smart with Voice Control. The key feature of the Ecobee Smart is its responsive voice controls. In addition to this, it is noted for having very precise sensor readings when calibrating your home's temperature.
  4. Google Nest Thermostat E. A more affordable option, the Nest Thermostat E is made of plastic, but that doesn't distract from its usability. It is a fully featured smart thermostat with all the expected features. The only downside is that it doesn’t support as many HVAC systems as the more-expensive options in the marketplace. And remember the number of wires required for Nest!
