Nest’s connected thermostat has been popular for a while now and today the company has refreshed their lineup with the 3rd generation Nest. Available now, the $249 device brings a new slimmer design and a better display along with a few new features.
The new Nest brings a slightly larger and slightly brighter display with a higher resolution of 480×480. Thanks to this larger display, the new Nest will have a feature known as “Farsight” which will turn on the display when you are a greater distance away unlike the previous model which required you to be within 1 meter.
This update also includes a new feature to monitor your furnace. The device will actually look for patterns in your furnace twice per year to check for any possible issues that could arise.
