Irwin Weiner ASID - I admit that I'm an Irwin-Come-Lately to some new products and concepts, but when I finally become aware of them, look out! I'm usually an evangelist for the good things I discover. That's why I was particularly excited to hear about the Nest Learning Thermostat. First good point: it's a thermostat that learns how to program itself based on family habits and patterns and times of day and when it's told to conserve energy and when it's told that people will be away.
Second: you can control the thermostat, and keep it learning, from a smartphone app. So you could be approaching your house after being away for a week, and program it to warm up by the time you arrive from the airport. Elegant, simple, and effective - that's how home appliances should be. Today's featured video will introduce you to the Nest, and click here to visit their website for more information.
