Modern technology in your home extends beyond wireless internet and streaming movies to now include a learning thermostat.
Nest Learning Thermostat programs itself, learns your family’s schedule and can be controlled from iPhone. Their website claims that if you teach it well the thermostat can lower your heating and cooling bills up to 20%. Deemed the ‘iPod of thermostats’, Nest is elegantly designed and simple to use.
The Nest thermostat is shaped like a jewel and brightly colored to match. It’s a refreshing change from the dull beige boxes we’re all use to seeing on our walls. The vivid display makes it easier to read, adjust and install. Plus it connects to your in home WiFi so you can adjust the temperature via the Nest app while away from home. Wouldn’t it be nice to warm up the house before you arrive from a chilly night out? or even remote in and adjust the settings after you sprint out for work. Over time, Nest will learn your schedule and automatically have the temperature set to match your preferences.
Nest learning thermostat retails for $249 and can be purchased at Apple stores or direct from the Nest website.
