WiFi Enabled Thermostat
« on: 24 Aug 2013, 03:45 pm »
I need to replace a couple of thermostats in the house and the WiFi enabled ones are intriguing.  They offer the possibility of setting them with a better, more intuitive interface, and remote control, but I don't really know anyone that has first hand experience with any, web reviews notwithstanding.

Have any of you experence with these?

P.S. I did see an earlier post regarding Siri and whole house control, but not much on WiFi thermostats.

I've had a Nest since they came out. Its a wonderful device. Figures out when no one is home and changes to your away temps. Starts the heater or A/C before the scheduled time which is great for having the house cold while you sleep but the right temp when you wake up. Its fairly pricey but I think its worth it.

Thanks, KC.  I'll give the Nest another look.
