25 Years Experience Making Networks Play

Green never felt so cozy


Nest thermostats spend their first week watching you and what you do. They note when you turn up the heat, and when you turn it down. They see when you're at home, and when you're away.. And by the end of the first week, they've created a personalized schedule according to the adjustments that you've made, and they go on continually adapting to your changing life.

Then Nest starts learning how long it takes to heat your home, and how long it takes to cool it down. It monitors the temperature outside. It watches when you go out and when you come home, and it adjusts accordingly. And as it acquires more and more data, it starts visually suggesting which settings are energy efficient and which are not, and it gives you feedback as to why your energy consumption levels are what they are.

And if that isn't a smart thermostat, we don't know what is.


WIth energy costs what they are, the standard solution has been to turn down the heat.

Now don't get us wrong. We're not discouraging you from cutting back on your energy consumption to save money and decrease the size of your carbon footprint, but we just have what we like to think is a slightly smarter way to achieve that. And one that will keep you warm.

While there are many networked thermostatic controllers that we can install, we recommend Nest (coming later this year) which take the idea of domestic smart-technology to a whole new level.
