By Jim, 12 September, 2016 Forum Hardware and Accessories Hi everyone, I am looking in to a smart Thermostat for my home and am in between 2 of them and would like some suggestions from a usability side of things. Either the Nest 3rd Generation or the ecobee3. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Nest I use the Nest at home and have for two years. IT is pretty accessible. Nest I use the Nest and it works great for me. Use it on iphone 6 running the latest IOS. Inspire Home Automation Hi, I've been using two of the Inspire home automation stats for about 18 months. We have a zoned heating system here. The app works extremely well with voiceover, and there's also a website if you prefer. For the devs, there's also an API; though I haven't played with it yet. these guys are based in the UK, but they do ship outside the country, at least as far as Ireland. May not be of use, but for anyone in this part of the world it's well worth a look. Accessible Installation? As VoiceOver users who are blind, how did you install Nest? It requires mapping the color-coded wires and getting the 7-digit entry code from hardware unit and inputting it into app.
