I bought a 2nd gen Nest thermostat several years ago. It paid for itself within two months and some change especially considering I installed it during the summer here. I'd put off getting something else after Google bought Nest because they at least kept the company separate. I knew eventually they'd fold it in and start collecting information they don't have a right to have. Guess that's happening now.

Sadly the only open source thing I can find concerning a smart thermostat is this smart hub thing that uses a raspberry pi and works-with-Nest-but-actually-no-longer-will-oops.
