The Best Smart Thermostat

Over at The Sweethome, I reviewed the latest crop of smart thermostats and came up with a winner.

The second-generation Nest is the best smart thermostat for the second year in a row, which we confirmed by using the top three thermostats for more than a month. It integrates with more smart devices than its competitors and has attractive, well-built software paired with our favorite on-device interface.

The Nest is still in the lead, but the gap has closed dramatically. Ecobee’s ecobee3 and Honeywell’s Lyric are both strong competitors.
