Google has unveiled its third-generation of Nest thermostat this month, that has been equipped with a larger display and a thinner design as well as featuring a number of new enhancements including Farsight.
Farsight has been added and designed to allow the new larger display to be seen from across a room and can provide details on the temperature you set or the time, which can then be viewed as either a digital or analog clock.
Google has also equipped the latest generation of Nest thermostat with more temperature sensors allowing the hardware to learn even quicker about changes in your environment and make adjustments. Google explains more :
With more temperature sensors, the Nest Thermostat is more accurate. So it’s even better at learning about your home. It gets to know how it heats and cools, or how drafty it is, and adjusts accordingly. And if your furnace is acting up, the Nest Thermostat will let you know. Most heating and forced air furnaces have an automatic shutoff to avoid overheating.
The Nest Thermostat is always looking out for shutoff patterns that indicate a persistent problem with your furnace. If anything’s out of the ordinary, every heating or cooling season you’ll get a Furnace Heads-Up message on your phone or tablet and the thermostat screen. And you’ll also get a notice in your monthly Home Report.
And of course, the Nest Thermostat works with other Nest products. If Nest Protect senses smoke or carbon monoxide, the Nest Thermostat will shut off your heating system. That’s because the furnace can spread smoke throughout your home in a fire and it’s also a common source of CO leaks.
