Learning Thermostat

Nest

Home thermostats are pretty ordinary items….until this product came along.

A thermostat that senses what homeowners do temperature wise in their home….in effect it learns temperature patterns and adjusts the temperature accordingly. Of course, it also has some innovative high-tech functions.

The Nest was recently advertised for $229 at our local Lowe’s Home center….a progamble thermostat for $59. While $170 more….it seems that a thermostat that learns your schedule and programs itself could payback easily (energy savings) in a year or two.

A very innovative product and business.
