Starting in mid-February, even in Italy it will be possible to buy one of the last born in the home automation sector. Not just any device, but even one Nest, the Google thermostat. What is it about? It is an intelligent thermostat, that is able to adapt to the house in which it is used by learning to recognize the thermal needs of the apartment in which it is installed.
The Google device, in fact, has been designed in such a way as to be able to evaluate, according to the external and required temperatures, the time required to reach the set temperature by switching on and off automatically, without having to intervene in person. Naturally, Nest by Google also does a lot more: thanks to a presence sensor, it is able to assess whether there are people in the house and, in the event of long absences, turn off the heating in the house, thus ensuring maximum cost savings.
As with most of the modern devices that have allowed the development of home automation, this smart thermostat also has a very elegant design, being made of glass and aluminum. The display is circular and guarantees high visibility and ease of reading thanks to the brightness that characterizes it. The basic use is very simple: you can set the temperatures by operating directly on the thermostat or using the app that allows remote control and setting. The app is available for both Android and iOS systems, thus ensuring the maximum possibility of use for everyone. Furthermore, since it can be installed on all mobile devices in the house, it ensures that all members of a family can adjust the settings.
Nest is not just a highly innovative thermostat, but a perfect solution for those who already have an autonomous system and want to modernize their heating system. In fact, it is compatible with all heating systems, both classic ones with wall radiators and those featuring radiant floors. Furthermore, the installation of Google Nest can be very convenient, as it can be included in the works of energy restructuring which fall within the tax benefits provided byEcobonus 2017.
To install this smart thermostat, Google's Nest company has defined a series of agreements with various installers throughout Italy, which will then be able to carry out a certified installation, able to ensure maximum use of the device and make the most of all the possibilities. that it offers. Deciding to buy the smart thermostat can be a fundamental choice for those aiming to make one complete home automation renovation, that is to those who know that a smart home is not just a set of gadgets to show to friends and acquaintances, but it is above all a way to save on consumption, in particular on those related to gas and electricity.
But how to insert the Google device inside your apartment? Nest installation is not complex and you just need to contact a qualified installer to be able to activate the device in a few minutes. What can be complex, however, is to create a heating system that can be controlled by this thermostat. For this reason it can be useful to take advantage of 2017 restructuring incentives to carry out renovation work in the home, focusing above all on energy upgrading. Naturally, before undertaking any type of work, it is essential to make a calculation of the expenses, to understand what are the costs to which one is going according to the type of intervention that one wants to undertake.

A quick and safe way to get information on the expenses to be faced is to request a free online quote, to be able to have immediately and totally free of costs, an overview of labor and material prices. In restructuring costsin fact, a large number of items must be considered which may have different costs depending on a series of parameters ranging from the materials chosen to the type of work to be carried out, up to the geographical area in which one is going to intervene. In fact, carrying out energy requalification works in a large metropolitan city or in a historic center can present different costs compared to the same type of work in the province.
If you also want to include an expense item relating to the Nest smart thermostat, then you will have to consider that the launch price on the Italian market will be around € 250. Those who are about to start work before Nest's release date can pre-order on Amazon making sure to buy the device made for the Italian market. As will be seen below, in fact, depending on the markets for which it is made, Nest can have different characteristics and incompatibility problems.
It should be emphasized that in order to have the incentives to modernize the apartment and to be able to install the smart thermostat, it is essential that the works that are undertaken are recognized as building requalification works. However, differently from what one might imagine, it is not only the redevelopment works that are among the possible candidates for tax deductions, but also the purchase of the thermostat itself.
The Stability Law, in fact, provides that all tax deductions for the modernization of the domestic heating system also include charges for home automation devices for remote control and management of the system itself, switching on, switching off and adjusting the temperatures. These devices, in fact, represent a real step forward towards an efficient use of systems, capable of being controlled even when you are not at home, ensuring perfect, correct and intelligent use of energy resources.
But what distinguishes Nest from the various smart thermostats already present on the market and an integral part of highly successful home automation systems? First of all, one of the main features of this thermostat is the design. As already mentioned, it is made of glass and aluminum, presenting itself as a very elegant element, which can also be installed on sight, fitting perfectly among the most modern furnishing accessories. Furthermore, it will be available in four different colors, to ensure maximum aesthetic integration with the surrounding environment.
The display is also very particular, which has relatively large dimensions, to ensure perfect reading. Furthermore, the accuracy of the reading is ensured by the high resolution of the display itself. Beyond the appearance, however, Nest stands out for the numerous possibilities of action. The version of the thermostat that will be marketed in Italy is the third, and already has a number of more advanced features than the previous versions. First of all, in addition to guaranteeing control over the heating system, it is also able to control the hot water boiler. Furthermore, by adapting to the living standards of the family and therefore to the needs for variation in domestic heating, this thermostat is able to guarantee savings of around 30% of the average consumption.
Of course, in order to be sure of a safe saving, it is necessary to set the thermostat's functions in the best way and make the right connections with your computer, smartphone or other mobile devices through which to better control and manage the thermostat itself . Finally, it should be noted that unlike other home automation devices, the Google thermostat can be considered a real instrument with artificial intelligence: its first name, in fact, is The Learning Thermostat, that is the learning thermostat. In fact, it will learn to better regulate temperatures and needs according to the different habits of the family.
Therefore, it is not a matter of installing settings that allow the satisfaction of the thermal needs of each household and therefore of each apartment, but of an instrument that learns ac
knowing these needs and habits and putting them into practice in a completely automatic way according to temperatures and days. Precisely this is the strong point of the Nest thermostat, a feature that, according to company data, has allowed, from the first installation to date, a saving of billions of kWh of energy. And in addition to the data of the company itself, other information is also what makes us think: according to some competitors, this thermostat is able to save up to a thousand euros per year.
To ensure maximum energy savings and correct use of all domestic resources, whether they are related to water, gas or electricity consumption, the Google thermostat can be combined with a series of other home automation devices, capable of making the home even smarter and, above all, even more able to save on bills and costs of all kinds. In addition to the Learning Thermostat, therefore, it is possible to have a specific webcam to check for any intrusions in the house, or to fear the perimeter areas. You can then choose between the Nest Cam Indoor and the Nest Cam Outdoor.
The Learnging Thermostat first appeared on the market in 2011, in America. Why did it take several years to land in Italy too? One of the main reasons is that of the lack of compatibility between the Italian electricity network and that of the system, calibrated on different voltages and sockets than our own ones. Precisely for this reason, those who bought the smart thermostat abroad, i.e. before the launch of the Italian version, had a series of problems, including that of having to change the power cable, given that the English and the American ones they do not follow Italian standards.
In addition, another difficulty encountered by those who tried to use a Google thermostat before the launch in Italy, was that linked to the lack of recognition of the locations, to be set by postcode, to ensure the full success and functioning of the thermostat. This, in fact, requires a geo-localization that allows him to acquire a series of information on weather forecasts, which allow him to evaluate, depending on the case, the possibility of turning on or off at unusual times due to specific, higher temperatures. or lower than expected. Linking to a specific weather forecast site is already built into the system, but you can choose to connect to other weather sites that are more reliable for a given geographic area for maximum accuracy.
