How the Nest Thermostat Helps Small Businesses Control Energy Costs

read | Share:

How can small businesses keep energy costs under control? 

One way is with the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Direct Energy Business is proud to offer the $249 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat to our small business customers at no extra cost, with a great fixed rate and through easy online enrollment. The offering provides small businesses with competitive energy rates, significant energy savings and cutting-edge technology.

Here are some of the Nest Learning Thermostat’s key features that can help your small business.


No more programming. With Auto-Schedule, Nest learns from you and programs itself.


Don’t heat or cool an empty room. Auto-Away adjusts the temperature after you leave.


Get the temperature you want when you want it. If your schedule says 72° at 8 am, Early-On starts heating or cooling in advance so it’ll be 72° when you walk into the room.

Remote Control

Control your thermostat from anywhere using your phone, tablet or laptop.

Energy History

Know more, save more. Check your Energy History to see how much energy you use and why.

Integration with Nest Protect and Nest Cam

The 3rd generation Nest Thermostat also includes integration with Nest Protect and Nest Cam:

  • When Nest Protect sounds a Heads-Up or Emergency Alarm for smoke or carbon monoxide (CO), you’ll also receive a message on the Nest Thermostat display. If there is a CO leak, the Nest Thermostat can automatically shut off all fossil fuel-based heating systems. 

  • Nest Protect enhances the Nest Thermostat’s Auto-Away feature by improving Nest’s knowledge of when you’re away. 

  • You can set your Nest Cam to begin automatically recording when you switch your Nest Thermostat into Home or Away mode.
