Nest Labs said Wednesday that it will sell a cheaper Internet-connected thermostat in a bid to get more customers. The Google-owned company is hoping to rectify that with the Nest Thermostat E - a cheaper, less showy model with nearly exactly the same specifications. In early 2014, Google, now Alphabet Inc. "Fast forward six years: Nest owners have saved more than 14 billion kWh - the equivalent of providing electricity to all the homes in New York State for over 100 days - and now we are bringing handsome design and proven energy saving capabilities into even more homes". It also comes with a pre-configured schedule to start saving energy straight out of the box. The smartphone app is a key aspect of the original that's present here, too. Former Nest CEO Tony Fadell left the company previous year and Ars Technica detailed other troubles at the time in the company. The more subtle look and feel of the Nest Thermostat E will seamlessly blend into any environment.
That's it. The Nest Thermostat E. It's cheaper, it's plastic, it has a lower-resolution screen and slightly less HVAC compatibility. Just 11 percent of American households with broadband Internet have smart thermostats, and only 18 percent of households were willing to pay for a $250 thermostat, according to a Parks Associates survey a year ago. "That would be a significant driver moving the market forward past early adopters". The Nest has been the first innovative model as the product got introduced around 6 years ago, back in 2011.
Nest has released a new, more affordable version of its smart thermostat. It also features a matte film on the inside of its display, which gives the screen a more diffused look. While the numbers on the display are illuminated, the frosted lens could make them hard to read for some. Meanwhile, they've dropped a few wiring connections inside that Nest says will limit compatibility to around 85% of United States houses rather than 95% - so if you've already checked if the original model will work with your place, you might want to check again here. The E (which stands for energy, everyone, easy, and a bunch of other stuff) lacks a couple of inputs that some high-end homes use for heating and cooling, but the people who live in those homes should spring for the nicer model anyway.
