Google announced a new Nest Thermostat on its Tuesday website. The smart thermostat is at 130 dollars (converted about 110 euros) considerably cheaper than previously published Nest thermostats, which cost around 200 euros.

The Nest Thermostat is also less thick than previous models. That’s partly because the rotary bezel, which operated older versions of the Nest, is not present on the new thermostat. Instead, owners can control the device by swiping and tapping on the side.

It was rumored that the Nest thermostat would receive support for hand gestures. That turns out not to be the case. The required Soli radar is present in the device. This radar detects if someone is standing in front of the thermostat, causing the screen to light up automatically.

The new Nest Thermostat has no learning function, like the more expensive models have. With the function, the thermostat learns how the user lives and can adjust the temperature accordingly. This cheaper model works with schedules that have to be set manually.

However, the new thermostat can be controlled via the Google Home app or with voice commands. Furthermore, it switches to economy mode when the user is away from home.

The Google Nest Thermostat will first appear in the United States and Canada in the coming weeks. It is not known if and when it will be released in the Netherlands.
