Today I was explaining how the Nest thermostat worked to someone.
I noted that the thermostat uses motion to determine whether we’re home or not. If it doesn’t detect motion in a certain time period it goes to eco mode.
Then i explained where the thermostat is located. Ours is by the front door. Then started thinking about places where we’d lived and the thermostat locations. Now this place was built in 1973. Other place between1900 and 1930. Those latter were well inside the house. So there was pretty much constant movement. The former where we are now not so much.
Which means it impacts the performance of the Nest product. Interesting.
