These ultimate thermostats are a leap ahead in technology as they are referred to as "The Learning Thermostat". The unit is unique in that it has the technology to watch what you do and to program itself to save you money on your heating and cooling. After a week of observing your habits, the thermostat will learn and switch to Auto-Away and adjust the system to save you money even when you forget. The Energy History feature will also tell you how much energy you have used each day. They can be ordered online and easily installed by yourself. They can also be connected via wi-fi and controlled by remote computer or smart phone. The Thermostat E is their latest version of the Nest Learning Thermostat and it has several advantages over the previous versions with the main advantage being price. The Thermostat E costs $80 less than previous versions and its price makes it less expensive than most other brands in our ultimate category. This new version has a frosted display which allows it to blend into the home's decor much better than the older versions and it has a simplified interface. Their website also offers help in finding rebates from utilities. nest.com
The ECOBEE3 is enabled for Apple's HomeKit smart home control system. The systems are very smart and their HOME iQ feature will show you how much energy you save each month. They can be purchased directly from their website but the cost of the units is relatively high and their warranty is not as good as other brands. ecobee.com
