The third iteration of the Nest smart thermostat is now available from distributor Invision UK. The 3rd generation thermostat, which learns the temperature its users like then programs itself, is thinner than previous versions and offers a 40 per cent larger display. Users can also choose a digital or analogue clock face. The 229 PPI display itself is also a little sharper which makes it easier to read across a room. A farsight feature illuminates the display when room movement is detected.

The Nest Thermostat also now controls hot water in addition to central heating. Customers can adjust the hot water schedule from their smartphone or thermostat, boost from anywhere; 3rd gen features include Auto-Away, Auto-Schedule and True Radiant, which manage home occupancy, current weather, temperature inside the home. True Radiant, for example, will monitor exterior temperature and if it’s a cold morning the Nest device will tell the boiler to turn on a little earlier.

Nest now also supports uses advanced modulation OpenTherm to enable two-way communication between compatible boilers. The 3rd generation Nest can work out the precise amount of gas to burn to reach or maintain a requested temperature, rather than simply turn the boiler on or off, thereby saving energy.
