Amazon becomes the latest retailer to sell the trendy NEST learning thermostat, which was designed by the guys that were responsible for the Apple iPod design. The thermostat is really quite a eye-catcher for your futuristic home and it may save you some household energy costs. NEST should learn your habbits and your daily life schedule in order to control your heating and temperature settings. Its one of the first examples of a new generation of smart home appliances that support you manageing your systems at home.
Nest was designed by the former fathers of Apples iPod (e.g. Tony Fadell) is advertised as the first thermostat that learns from you and that is as intuitive to control as other Apple products. You can teach Nest about your daily schedule well to stay comfortable at home and save energy when you’re away. Its all about changing your old thermostat with new intuitive and learing technology. Nest automatically programs itself in about a week. It creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you’ve made and continually adapts to your changing life. About two hours after you’ve left the house, Nest will also sense you’ve gone and automatically adjust the temperature to avoid heating or cooling an empty home. It also helps you to keep track of your energy usage history, in order to identify devices or contexts in which you are using more energy than necessary. Some rumors mentioned that Nest’s Internet-savvy climate control could soon be in Apple Stores, presumably across the US, for the same $249 as it costs to buy one through Nest itself.
