Re: CT30 and 3M50 Remote Thermostats.

said by dennismurphy:

I just installed a Nest last week. So far, I love it. The fit & finish - both physical and software - is excellent.

Enjoying the remote access - lets me save a bunch of energy when I'm not home.

Nest looks cool...but too pricey for me. I've had the 3M50 for a while. I have three zones. I could almost afford to buy three of the 3M50's for the cost of ONE nest....

I also looked over a couple at lowes/depot. Lowes (IIRC) had one from honeywell, but it had a monthly $$$. Not interested.

I also found a very cool feature of the 3M50. During Sandy I didn't crank up my boiler (wasn't cold enough). Got an email from Filtrete saying it hadn't been able to contact my thermostat. Pretty neat feature if you install it in a summer/winter house, I thought.
