This month, we’d like to celebrate the Nest Learning Thermostat. Not only is it stylish and easy-to-use, but it conserves energy and can lower your bills up to 20%, especially during summer heat waves like we’ve been experiencing lately.
Nest Labs is a start-up founded by Tony Fadell, the inventor of the iPod. Nest operates with the same familiar wheel interface as the original iPod. It connects to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to control it remotely via an iPhone app or the Web. The difference between Nest and other programmable thermostats is that it learns your behavioral patterns and creates a temperature schedule customized for you. For example, if Nest senses that nobody has walked by in two hours, it goes into an “Away Mode” and automatically adjusts to a more energy efficient setting.
