Re: My Network Setup Thanks for the details
...the Bay Web T-stat looks pretty cool from what I've seen about them. I considered them specifically for my house because I love the idea of getting feedback about energy use as well as the occupancy monitors.
In the end, since I'm heat-only, I went with a basic (in comparison) 7-day programmable Honeywell. It works reasonably well, but I know it's less than ideal in terms of efficiency because my schedule is not that rigid, so it ends up running in the evenings when i'm not home.
The BayWeb thermostat is great! My only concern is that they stay in business and keep the web interface going. Otherwise, that will be a very expensive simple thermostat!
I like the Nest thermostats too. I wish the BayWeb had a wall mounted unit that looked as good as the Nest does. However, I will take a solid wired connection over a wireless connection anyway.
My next steps on this network will be a NAS solution that stores all my data and then convert all my computers to SSD drives and store the data on a central location. Any suggestions on a NAS solution?
