If you are still adjusting your thermostat by hand, it's time to get with the times and embrace technology. Specifically voice-activated technology, like the kind offered by Reliant with its new plan that includes the Google Home Mini, which you can use to control your home's temperature through the Nest Thermostat E.
Launching on Black Friday, November 24, Reliant can hook you up with the Speak & Save 12 plan, which promises a year of price security plus the opportunity to save energy with the Nest Thermostat E and make your life easier with a Google Home Mini.*
How much easier? Here are five ways.
1. Just say the word
Feeling a little chilly? Say, "Ok Google, make it warmer." Google Home Mini is powered by the Google Assistant, so you can easily adjust your new Nest Thermostat E, play music, get answers from Google Search, manage everyday tasks, and more. It even recognizes different voices, so answers are personalized for you.
2. You will save money
The Nest Thermostat E programs itself so you can help reduce your AC usage by up to 15 percent.** Like the original Nest Learning Thermostat, the E turns itself down when you're away, so you don't waste energy heating or cooling an empty home. Over time, it even learns your schedule and makes suggestions for more energy efficient settings. And with a Nest Thermostat E and price security from the Reliant Speak & Save 12 plan, the savings can stack up.
3. Control temps from your phone
Not at home to tell your Google Home Mini what to do? The easy-to-use Nest mobile app lets you control your home's temperature even while you're away. Check the current temp, plan for a sudden weather change, or adjust the setting when you're officially leaving for vacation. It's almost as satisfying as putting up your out-of-office email message.
4. It will simplify other aspects of your life
Reliant’s mission is to power, protect and simplify lives for its customers that’s why Reliant offers the Google Home Mini, which lets you control more than 1,000 smart home devices from over 150 brands with just your voice. Using only a simple voice command, get the latest on weather, traffic, finance, sports, local businesses, and more, or play music and your own personal playlists from popular online services. Its high excursion speaker delivers HiFi sound quality and will always hear you reliably, thanks to far-field microphones.
5. They fit with almost any decor
The redesigned Nest Thermostat E features a frosted display that blends in beautifully to complement any home’s decor, and the Google Home Mini is sleek and compact. Both look even better when you remember that they're included in your Reliant Speak & Save 12 plan.
