[Home Depot] Google Nest Temperature Sensor (3-Pack), $112.50

It's a warm deal as these don't seem to be moving a lot in price, its cemented at $125 Cndn for the longest time. Deal is a simple price match with Canadian Tire who advertises this at $124.99.

Home Depot, and a lot of other places, sell these at $125. The one cent price diff triggers the 10% discount of $12.50 for a total price of $112.50 and it qualifies for free shipping as HD doesn't carry them in store.

Only caveat is that it seems like their online chat is either understaffed or doesn't work properly as at times it can take FOREVER for someone to respond. I just open a window and wait until I hear that chat pop sound from their agent responding - last time it took a good 20min for them to respond. Once you are talking to someone the whole process is pretty quick.

That's a good little trick.

I wonder if you could combine this with any kind of coupon. Like one of those $10 off $100 ones.

I personally bought a 3-pack from Lowe's using a $10 off coupon from signing up to their newsletter. So I bought it for $115 about half a year ago.

I’m curious with these. What’s the benefit of having these vs a thermometer in several rooms? Until hvac units can direct heat/cooling to individual rooms aren’t these kind of a gimmick?

It doesn’t work as well as it could but I have it cycle back and forth between the main unit and one in another room.
I find one room gets too hot and the other too cold.
By cycling back and forth it triggers my fans on to blend the temps.

However, I wish I could switch back and forth more often.
It only lets you do 4 blocks of time and they aren’t even customizable.

It's people like you who make the stores change their price match policies each year. Making a claim for 1 cent is just ridiculous.

I bought a 3 pack last year and returned them... Not customizable and no temperature averaging.

This is absolutely useless for most families. Don't waste your money.

You might be right. Checking their stock they dropped about 0.02c (0.01%) after I posted this... I am sure everyone got called into the war room to address the crisis up north. While this plays out, I will go back to sipping my water with plastic straws - I'd rather be known as the guy who brought down the turtles, had a traumatic event when they snapped at me while I was trying to pickup a penny off the ocean floor.

The lack of customization seems to be the biggest complaint - I am hoping to achieve the same you've done, blend at least the temp a bit. Would have also been nice if they also added a presence awareness into the sensors though I've seen some people talk about using the nest protect to tie into the system.

Not sure why the down votes. I’ve never seen this go on sale, good trick to bring the price down.

I’ve been waiting for this to go on sale for a while now. I have a single sensor in our nursery and wanted to add more to the rest of the bedrooms (4 in total)

I’m on a corner lot with a ton of windows, the temperature fluctuates a lot in each room throughout the day as we get sun from rise to set

Yea it’s not fully customizable and has only 4 blocks of time but you can still manually set it to heat/cool off that sensor whenever you want

I’m always watching the temperatures in the house so it’s great to get further visibility and control

These were nest's attempt to do what echobee does with the remote sensors.

I bought a 3 pack last year during our renovations and totally forgot about them until now.

Nest is missing out on some opportunities, it wouldn't take much to incorporate this kind of functionality into other products of theirs like the nest protects or Google home or WiFi products

Isn’t this basically RFD in a nutshell? Funny that you’re shaking your finger at the op about this but people post things like this all the time

The ecobee wasn’t without its faults - I moved from their thermostat to the Nest. One sensor I could never keep connected and it was maybe ten feet away.

Google is definitely missing out on offering better integration esp now that they pulled back on 3rd party integrations.
