I just picked up one of these up at the Apple Store yesterday and I must say so far, this is probably the best impulse buy I’ve ever made. Priced at a staggering $249, the Nest Learning Thermostat was worth every penny. I will post a review of the up shortly within the week, but let me give you a walk through of how easy it was in setting this up! It took me a total of 25 minutes from unboxing the unit, removing my old thermostat, and mounting it on my wall!
I wasn’t joking when I said I barely just picked this up from the Apple Store!
Here’s a look at my old thermostat!
Unboxed the Nest and saw that it comes with a few tools and screws. Afterwards, I unmounted the old thermostat, drilled a few holes in the wall, and then mounted the Nest!
Success! The Nest powered up, found my router, and automatically installed updates!
Now I can control my thermostat and turn off or turn on my heater / AC without having to get out of bed! Also if it’s a hot day, I know that my house will be nice and cool in the summer right before I get home!
