While there are pros to the Nest, there are other options out there that offer more features and better home comfort control. The Prestige IAQ from Honeywell is a fantastic option.
The Prestige is a feature rich, internet capable thermostat. It has a large, full color touchscreen display. Homeowners have the option of downloading the Comfort Control App from Honeywell at no charge; so it can be controlled from any phone, computer, or tablet.
The Prestige can also eliminate the need for a seperate humidistat to control the humidifier. It has wireless outdoor sensors, so the temperature and humidity is monitored indoors and out.
The Prestige has built-in Delta T Sensors. These sensors monitor the temperature rise and drop of the HVAC system and will alert the homeowner with an email if there is a need for a service call. Service reminders can also be programmed in to email the homeowner when it is time for annual maintenance, filter changes, and humidifier pad changes.
The Prestige IAQ is the choice for our company when a homeowner wants to upgrade to an internet capable, smart thermostat.
With anything like this, I hate to be the first especially with this manufacturer. They brought out the Nest smoke detector and it get recalled. I would rather wait and watch the press and blogs and when the dust clears and all is good then starting specifiing them.
