A Preliminary Review of the Nest » New Wiring

This is the mounting/wiring bracket of the new thermostat. Though the terminals are a toolless type similar to the speaker connections on a stereo receiver, I found that I had to use needle nose pliers to actually insert the wires into their proper spots. Depending on the gauge wires in your house and how fat your fingers are, you may do fine without the pliers.

The bubble level built into the bracket is a really nice touch. It greatly simplifies installation, and demonstrates the level of thought and attention to detail that the designers and engineers put into the Nest.
