Connected Home With Nest Smart Thermostat from BestBuy #BBYConnectedHome

Our family loves innovative gadgets and technology. The way we see it, life wouldn’t be as easy if not for all the tech that we have at hand nowadays. Can you imagine going back to those days where we have no smartphones or cellphones at all? How about during the days where there were no digital music accessible or mp3 players and we have to rely on our Walkman “cassette tape” player or the Discman “cd” player? The sound of it is quite terrifying. Which is why we are truly grateful to be living on this day and age. You know what else we love? Best Buy! It’s our number one-stop shop for everything tech related. Given that I am a blogger, I was given the opportunity to check out the Smart Nest Learning Thermostat – and I can’t wait to tell you all what my family and I think of it!

    We have a NEST thermostat and it’s a lifesaver! Right now in NYC the mornings and evenings are cold with hot days. We love that we can remotely adjust the temperatures to keep all our animals comfy while we are away working. 🙂 Great review and tutorial!!

    I have a NEST camera which I love. It works so well, even if I wish the notifications didn’t go off every time a bug flew by. I’ve thought about trying their thermostat since it gets such rave reviews.
