Nest Thermostat (2020) review: Unparalleled value

Nest Thermostat (2020) review: Unparalleled value

Nest kicked off the era of smart thermostats in 2011, and since then, there have been improved thermostats, new products, and a Google acquisition. Through all that, Nest's thermostats have remained at the premium end of the market. The company's previous "budget" thermostat was still $180 at launch. The new Nest Thermostat, however, is undeniably a budget device. There's the price, of course, at a mere $130. The hardware also looks much cheaper in real life, but that's not totally unsurprising given the price.

Philips Hue is discontinuing integration with Nest products, but only temporarily

Philips Hue is discontinuing integration with Nest products, but only temporarily

Google and branding have a complicated relationship. The company has never been especially good at sticking with a single direction, often reversing course or renaming an entire product line after it's been released. The "Works with Nest" program is being replaced by "Works with Hey Google" program, and the transition might cause some confusion to customers using Philips Hue lights with certain Nest products.

New Nest thermostat from Google hits FCC, may have Soli-like gesture support

New Nest thermostat from Google hits FCC, may have Soli-like gesture support

A new and previously unknown thermostat from Google just hit the FCC. The (probably Nest-branded) thermostat was filed confidentially, so things like images aren't included in the FCC's library of information regarding the product, but there is one very curious detail: Explicit support for 60GHz frequencies at power levels identical to the Pixel 4. These ultra-high frequency bands are only really used for a few things, and our bet is on Google's Soli motion gestures.

In the last few months, we've seen an increase of reports regarding a "w5 error" for Nest thermostats, causing them to be unable to connect to Wi-Fi. Some device owners have accused an update of being the cause of their woes, but whatever might be triggering the problem, Google tells us its a known issue affecting a very small number of users, and the company is issuing replacement devices if and when other troubleshooting methods fail.
