Nest And Alexa Team Up to Make Your Home Comfortable

Nest Thermostat-Amazon Alexa

The Nest Learning Thermostat makes conserving energy easy and keeps costs low. This thermostat has the capability to learn what temperature you prefer and can also shut off when you are away. In independent studies, Nest saved an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. That means it can pay for itself in under two years. The device is easy to use, it has Wi-Fi, so you can adjust the temperature to your liking by simply using your smartphone, tablet, or your Mac.

Now, adjusting the temperature in your home is easier by using your own voice, thanks to Nest and Amazon Alexa. Alexa is a cloud-based service that you can speak to through your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, or Fire TV.  You can change the temperature on your Nest by stating a voice command such as “Alexa, set my living room thermostat to 68 degrees.” With this voice command feature, you can adjust the room temperature without having to lay a finger on your thermostat.
