The Nest Learning Thermostat is the gadget that started it all. Thanks to Nest’s intelligent design, people realized how inefficient dumb thermostats were, and how much money they were essentially throwing away by using them. Fast-forward to 2017, however, and the market is flooded with smart thermostats that bring sleek designs and intelligent features for a fraction of the cost of a Nest. The Honeywell Lyric T5 Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is a perfect example. It looks beautiful, it works with both Amazon Alexa and Apple’s Siri assistant, and it costs less than half of what you would pay for a Nest.

Here are some highlights from the product page:
