Re: New Nest Thermostat- 2 stage

I've looked into it, but it seems like an expensive, impractical toy (sounds kinda like Apple products...but I digress).

The motion sensor aspect would be find and dandy if you had the thermostat in a high traffic location, but just thinking about where mine is, I am quite sure it would think I am gone for large periods of time when I am actually at home.

There are other remote programmable thermostats for $100+ cheaper from actual HVAC companies (Honeywell for example). I would pass on this one myself based on the information I have.

I have a nest, it was given to me as a gift.
As far as I am concerned, it looks great, and it works as advertises.
It is located in a high traffic area, so if only a single person is home and they are either resting or occupied, it will adjust the temperature a little higher.
Additionally since it was installed, each of my monthly bills has been lower in usage then the previous years corresponding month.
Seeing as we just had one of the hottest summers in history, I'm satisfied.
Besides it really does look good.
My software will be updated by tonight as per the email I got from nest.
