There is no turning back… technology is here to stay and truly changing the way we live our lives and build our homes. We have just recently installed the Nest Learning Thermostat at a large home renovation. It is not your typical thermostat, only changing temperature with a physical adjustment of the dial. This thermostat keeps track of your every move. Sound creepy? Well creepy or not, it is well worth it. This thermostat has the capability to determine what your ideal temperature is at specific times of the day by taking into account your daily activities, e.g., the hour you wake, when you leave for work and when you return. It takes into account the time, the temperature, the day of the week and many other factors by using sensors, algorithms and cloud computing. The Nest Thermostat learns your schedule, programs itself and can be controlled via your smart phone. Did you forget to turn down the heat when you left for the office today? No big deal… the Nest already took care of that. This thermostat retails at $250. Well worth the steep price tag when you realize how much you can save in energy efficiency, lowering your heating and cooling bills by up to twenty percent. Think this product is just a fad? I think Google will disagree. They just purchased the Nest for 3.2 billion dollars in cash.
Upgrade to the Nest Learning Thermostat in your next home or remodel. You will be happy you did.
Oh…did we mention it also looks cool?
