When Nest Labs announced their new thermostat we got excited. A very sleek design coupled with a very simple functionality. It learns your program as you use it. Their website states “No more programming, no more constantly changing the temperature. The Nest™ Learning Thermostat™ programs itself in a week to keep you comfortable and save energy”.
As with any product these days, the lawsuits are imminent. As reported on Reuters, Thermostat spat puts old heat on new cool, Honey well accused Nest Labs of stealing its ideas. Where ever this might end up, the bottom line is that Nest Labs made the everyday thermostat sexy, cool, and ea sier to use. While doing PDIs (pre delivery inspection) many new homeowners’ eyes get glazed over when we attempt to explain a programmable thermostat for the first time.
With the heating/cooling system being the most important systems in your home, having flexible control over it is key to its optimal operation. Overall this new gadget is something to watch out for in the future.
