We mentioned Amazon’s rare sale on the new 3rd-Generation Nest Learning Thermostat in our roundup of the days best daily deals, but it’s absolutely worth mentioning again. There are plenty of great smart thermostats out there, but only one can definitively be called the best. There’s precious little question that Nest’s smart thermostat gets that honor. It was the first, and it still leads the way in so many areas, including functionality, versatility, and savings. It’s well worth the regular $249 asking price, but you’ll save $51 if you grab one right now on Amazon. Seriously, at $198 the new Nest thermostat is a no-brainer.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Works with Amazon Alexa for voice control (Alexa device sold separately)
  • Auto-Schedule: Nest learns the temperatures you like and programs itself in about a week.
  • Home/Away Assist: Nest automatically turns itself down when nobody’s home to help you save energy.
  • Remote Control: Connect your thermostat to Wi-Fi to control the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop.
  • Farsight: When the Nest Thermostat spots you across the room, it lights up beautifully to show you the time, temperature or weather.
  • Energy Star: First thermostat to earn Energy Star. Your thermostat controls half your energy bill – more than appliances, more than electronics. Saving energy starts with your Thermostat.
  • Energy History: Check your Energy History in the Nest app to see how much energy you use and why.
  • Nest Leaf: You’ll see the Leaf when you choose a temperature that saves energy. It guides you in the right direction.
