Need a Holiday Gift Idea? Here Are the Top Smart Thermostats!

If you need a holiday gift idea for a homeowner in your life, why not consider getting them a smart thermostat? A smart thermostat has revolutionized the way homeowners control the climate in their home by sticking to a schedule or even learning your tendencies and adjustments based on a number of different factors. Many of them are also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing you to control them with your smartphone, even when you are not home at all. On this blog, we examine the top options available on the market to help you choose.

Honeywell Smart Thermostats

Honeywell has two different models that have been lauded by both consumers and professional reviewers alike. The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat has a brilliant, full-color screen, easy-to-use interface, and has Wi-Fi control capabilities. It also can be programmed, to the hour, for up to seven consecutive days. This model runs $185 on Amazon.

The second Honeywell model to be highly-acclaimed is the Z-wave enabled smart thermostat. This one features a traditional LCD screen, but can control other parts of your home that are Z-wave enabled, such as lights and appliances. Like all the other models on this list, it too is Wi-Fi enabled and can be controlled from your tablet or smartphone. This one will run you about $140 on Amazon, so it’s a little bit more budget-friendly.


The Ecobee3 is an extremely popular option with consumers who want the ability to control nearly every aspect of their home’s heating and cooling systems with precision. The Ecobee3 functions using Wi-Fi remote sensors placed at various points throughout the house which help it to learn and make decisions on temperature adjustments and when to turn your system on and off based on a number of factors. It even learns when you are usually home and away, and turns your system on and off to save you money. One of these units will run you about $260 on Amazon, and includes one remote sensor.


This is the undisputed king of the smart thermostat world, as well as the pioneer of the technology. The Nest was the first to offer the kind of self-programming capabilities based on your preferences and habits. Installation is relatively easy, the device can be smartphone or tablet controlled, and it learns quickly, allowing you to stop touching it almost entirely after a short period of time. These run you about $225 on Amazon.
