Google/Nest thermostat feedback

Hello all,

Considering putting in a wi-fi controlled smart thermostat. I am at the very early stages of research. Something like the Google Nest product line, etc.

Any positive or negative experiences with any brands or suggests on which way to go?

Much appreciated

Nathan

WiFi thermostats will require a C (24 volt common) wire.
Some homes do not have an extra wire in the wall and do not have common to the stat.

I would avoid Nest if you have a heat pump with Aux heat.

It is a good option with most systems but I prefer Honeywell.
