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.

Amazon's smart thermostat is Energy Star certified. That means it's required to save you an average of $50 per year on your energy bills. 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 or hot 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 the Amazon Smart Thermostat with C-Wire Bundle for $62 (opens in new tab) (which is $22 off). Make sure to check the info on rebates (opens in new tab) in your area, too — you can get up to $100 back, meaning you could essentially get your Smart Thermostat for free.
