An Intelligent Thermostat linked to my iPad
I’ve been looking at this puppy and finally pulled the trigger the other day.
It is an intelligent thermostat from Nest that learns your habits over time and acts accordingly.
The overall goal is to watch energy used to heat and cool the house and to be as efficient as possible.
So far, I must say that I’m impressed with the performance.
The cost was a pretty penny ( $250-ish shipped to the door ), but in the long run, I expect it to pay for itself.
It also has the ‘Gadget factor’ that really gets me. Namely, there’s an iPhone / iPad app that allows communication to raise and lower setpoints and to remotely see how current conditions are.
Since it communicates via WiFi, it is reachable anywhere in the world from the iPhone! :)
