Having lost track of the amount of Nest Installs carried out by us, we can provide a good review of the Nest Learning thermostat.
The Nest Thermostat 3rd Generation has a few major changes compared to it’s predecessor the Gen 2, namely Hot Water Control, OpenTherm connection and visibly a larger screen.
Please note the Gen 3 Nest base plate has been redesigned too so not backwards compatible, hence a new more improved stand is now available.
There are also a host of smaller invisible changes such as a long range ( upto 6m) farview sensor. There is now a option to display a clock when someone activates the short and long range sensors by walking past. The power adaptor when plugged in has also been re-designed, it is now a smooth round plug with the USB outlet on the top.
