The Nest Learning Thermostat is the thermostat the programs itself and will pay for itself. The Nest Learning Thermostat is the third generation which boosts a sleeker design, it’s thinner and has a crisper display. It’s also proven to help you save energy, which in return will help you save money. Typical users save 10 – 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
The Nest Learning Thermostat learns your ways and helps programs your thermostat to meet your needs, and best of all you don’t have to do anything! The Nest Learning Thermostat has great features like:
Auto Scheduling – You don’t need to learn how to program your thermostat and it learns what temperatures you like and will program itself to like them.
Remote Control – You can control your Nest Thermostat while you’re connected to WI-Fi from your laptop, tablet or smartphone!
Nest Leaf – When you see the Leaf it will help you choose a temperature that will help you save money and point you in the right direction.
Early On – Nest will learn how your home warms up and keeps an eye on the weather to help you achieve the desired temperature.
Auto-Away – When you are away Nest will automatically turn itself down to avoid heating or cooling an empty house
Energy History – Manage your heating and cooling with a helpful history to see what may be affected by your extra energy use.

Far-sight – When Nest spots you across the room it lights up to show you the temperature you set or the time.
When we first purchased our house back in 2007, there was a lot of weird things we noticed about it after we moved in and one of those things was the thermostat. The thermostat ran on batteries, so whenever the batteries weak or die the furnace or air conditioner will turn off and you can’t use it until you replace the batteries. Talk about a royal pain, and it has weird features to this day I still have no idea how to properly set it.
In comes, the Nest Learning Thermostat; the Nest Learning Thermostat was easy to install and easy to set. Simple instructions are included some basic wiring skills are needed to install to label the wire and properly install it right. Once it’s installed you don’t have to do much more; set it at your desired temperature and you’re done. Nest will learn your habits and in return help you save money.
I love my Nest Learning Thermostat it’s the best thermostat I’ve ever used and I love how it can help me save money. With the winter season fastly approaching heating, a large house can be a big expense and I am excited to how much money I will save on my heating bills this winter. You can purchase the Nest Learning Thermostat at Best Buy for $249.99.
I also received the Nighthawk DST – AC1900 DST Router and DST Adapter it’s the newest router from Netgear available exclusively at Best Buy. If your house is old like mine you probably have dead spots; mine especially is in our family room and my current router wouldn’t even reach outside. However, with the new Netgear Nighthawk router and adapter, I will never have to fear a dead spot again.
The Nighthawk is a high-performance WiFi router with a Dead Spot Termination that helps eliminate your WiFi dead zones, it boasts a 1GHz Dual Core processor, and supports 10+ connected devices. It’s perfect for the gamer to experience lag-free gaming, and streaming music and videos. It sets up easily with no software to install and the adapter connects to an electrical outlet where you might need a boost.
The Nighthawk has three high powered antennas and FastLane technology that improves performance when using WiFi bands, wirelessly share your USB hard drive and printer and access your cloud storage anywhere with ReadyCLOUD USB Access. With your purchase, you’ll also get set up and support via the phone and website from Geek Squad and eliminate dead zones by extending your covering using electrical wiring already in your home. Have high powered signal strength on all your devices with the fastest connection around. No expensive internet upgrades needed.
The Netgear Nighthawk is super easy to set up it took me no less than 10 minutes to set up from start to finish and it required no setup using the computer. In a house with 5 tablets, 3 laptops, and 3 smartphones we can have a device overload. Add a couple of additional phones and devices to the mix and it can give you a serious lag in internet usage. My old router just wasn’t cutting it anymore it was still fairly new but was slowing down with all the connected devices. We were also getting frequent disconnects due to incompatibility with our provider.
However; since installing the Nighthawk signal strength has improved, there’s no lag for connected devices and the deadest zone can now be used as a WiFi hub; connecting gaming consoles, computers and more. The included adapter is my favorite part of the whole package; my house is over 100 years old and the wiring is just as old. Our family room was an add-on when we purchased the house and they cheaply put it together so there signal barely reaches that room. However; when I plug in the WiFi plug I can reach the back room and even outside! I can’t wait til next summer to be able to use when we’re entertaining outside to listen to music and more. The Nighthawk is really the best router out there and really worth the price at $299.99.
