LONG TERM GOOGLE NEST E REVIEW

LONG TERM GOOGLE NEST E REVIEW

Hello, welcome to the first review on the website!

This is talking about the new Google Nest E thermostat, and there will be a bit of a comparison towards the Ecobee 3 thermostat.

To start off, we’ll briefly discuss the availability and installation. One of the best parts of the Nest E is how easy it is to buy it anywhere! You can buy it at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Home Depot, and, surprisingly, Amazon. Another great part is that depending on your province, you can get an energy-saving rebate on it from your power company. In Ontario, I received $100 from Enbridge after I purchased it, making the total purchase price about $150 after tax.

TUTORIAL: CONNECT IKEA TRÅDFRI BULBS TO PHILIPS HUE BRIDGE (WITHOUT IKEA GATEWAY)

Why would I want to connect TRÅDFRI bulbs to a Philips Hue bridge if the IKEA Gateway is perfectly good?

If you are already reading this tutorial, you may have already made your decision but we will still look at the advantages. The first advantage to the Philips bridge is compatibility. The three main voice controls are Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant (Google Home), and Amazon Alexa. While Philips hue is compatible with all three, IKEA has not added support for Google Assistant yet.
