Advances in technology continue to help improve functions in appliances and devices for better user experiences. You may already have a smartphone, a smart car or even a smart refrigerator! As we enter a New Year, it is a great time to consider investing in your own home’s technology.

Comfort First is happy to lead the way in North Carolina home comfort technology!
The Nest Thermostat uses the latest in cutting edge technology when it comes to controlling your home’s temperature. You have most likely heard how a programmable thermostat is a great way to save on energy costs as it allows your heating and cooling system to heat and cool more or less when you need it to. For instance, you can program your thermostat to not heat or cool as much during the day when you are at work, saving valuable costs on energy.
The Nest Thermostat goes a step further than a programmable thermostat in energy efficiency. It automatically sets itself to run more or less by actually learning your preferences. Therefore, when you first use it and highlight your heating and cooling needs, it remembers your comfort preferences and programs itself in a way to run based on your habits, ensuring incredible energy efficiency in an easy-to-use way.
There are a number of additional features that come with the Nest Thermostat, including:
It can work with any heating and cooling system.
You can operate Nest from your phone or computer.
Nest allows you to track your energy usage as well as behaviors that lead to greater efficiency.
The device employs 3 temperature sensors, a humidity sensor and WiFi to obtain weather data in your area.
Leading the way in home comfort technology, Nest recently unveiled their new Hello Doorbell device. This doorbell comes equipped with a video camera that alerts you to a presence outside your door as well as shows you via video who is there. However, this product is not just a video camera at your door. The Nest Hello Doorbell uses advanced technology to offer incredible features to enhance your home’s security and comfort, including:
High resolution video quality.
Infrared night vision, so even in the dark you will be able to see who is outside your door.
The ability to connect with other smart devices, like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and other Nest products.
The person-alert feature that can tell the difference between a bird flying on your front lawn and a person at your door, so you are not bombarded with unnecessary alerts for movement outside.
Familiar face recognition that goes a step beyond to recognize faces that have come to your door before vs. strangers.
A feature specifically for tracking package deliveries and preventing porch pirates from taking off with your packages.
