The Amazon Smart Thermostat allows you to easily control the temperature in your home no matter where you are using the Alexa app on your phone, meaning you save energy and money. You can also let Alexa set the temperature automatically to keep you warm or cool.

In our Amazon Smart Thermostat review, we found that this thermostat is one of the best low-budget options around. It’s half the price of Nest’s cheapest thermostat, for example, and Amazon’s version easily serves the same purpose.

This thermostat is simple to set up and easy to use. Controlling the temperature in your home is easy thanks to the Alexa app — you can set the temperature from anywhere, meaning you can turn the thermostat down when you leave, and turn it back up on your way back. You’ll never have to come home to a cold house again. Although the thermostat itself doesn’t have voice functionality, it works well through the Alexa app, or an Echo device if you have one.

If you need a C-wire to hook up your thermostat, you can get one bundled with the Amazon Smart Thermostat — you’ll pay $62 (was $84), a saving of $22. Make sure to check the info on rebates in your area, too — you can get up to $59 back, meaning you could essentially get your Smart Thermostat for free.

If you’re still not sure this is the right thermostat for you, check out our list of the best smart thermostats to help you decide.
