    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Yeah. To be honest about it, I purchased mine without doing the compatibility check first and issued a huge sigh of relief when I confirmed that my system was okay (and that's in a 100 year old house--with original wiring--and the original hot-water/radiator furnace!!!). The furnace is a...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Nope. I've only got two wires to my furnace and the Nest (Learning, 3rd. Gen.) works fine. They have compatibility walk-throughs on their website (easy-to-use) to make sure your heating/cooling system works with the Nest. Wall units and 110+ volt systems are among those which are no gos...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Sure did. It's amazing how nice the Thermostat, doorbell/camera and app work in consort! Although, the thermostat dumped off the wi-fi for a while today (about 4-5 hours). I double-checked our wifi and it was as strong as normal. And, it ended up reconnecting itself without any adjustment or...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Installed my Nest thermostat today (Santa had put it under the Christmas tree--along with a Nest "Hello" doorbell). What an easy installation! Too early to report on the "learning" aspect of the device. But I can immediately report that the remote sensor is working like a dream. No more...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    My current thermostat (which is about 30 years old) has the ability to temporarily re-set the temp...but it only "holds" until the next scheduled temp change in the programming. That was a commonly-used feature because with the TV on after dinner I would need to bump up the temperature for the...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Here's a recent picture I took of Pete watching TV. You can see my current old, hard-to-read programmable thermostat located on the wall behind the TV and next to the archway molding. That plasma set throws a LOT of heat at that thermostat.

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Ooooh! I just found out they've got something called a "Nest Temperature Sensor" which you can stick in a remote location to act as your thermometer for your heating/cooling system. This will be GREAT for me as my thermostat is located less than a foot away from my 55" Plasma (which throws a...

    Hardware Review NEST Thermostat with Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote Integration: A Review

    Everyone still happy with their Nest thermostats? :D I'm thinking of making the jump...but admittedly have not yet checked the wiring on my old thermostat for compatibility. I live in a 110-year old home (without AC). So I've got an old furnace and old wiring. But assuming I can find a...
