How we uncover the best smart thermostats

We spend hours using each smart thermostat, getting to know everything it can and can't do, so you can be sure that our Best Buys are feature-packed and simple to use.

  • Setting up and connecting: Our testers run through the setup process to keep an eye out for potential pitfalls.
  • Ease of use: Experts dig into every function on the smart thermostat to discover how easy it is to use.
  • Features: We cut through the jargon and hype  to separate the genuinely useful features from the pointless gimmicks.
