I'm with you, Count. It must be nice to have so much money that you can spend $179 on a thermostat.
You think that's too much? Umm... there are plenty of programmable T-Stats that cost that much and a lot more (that do what the nest does, plus). That's on par with what a good smart (programmable) t-stat costs.

Thank you, that was much more informative even than Amazons description. ^_^ (perhaps you should post that review. :p)
Well, my fully programmable thermostat was $20 on a deal and does all of these things except for remote programming. I have better things to do than surf with my cell phone to watch a thermostat--- Why not get a remotely watchable doorbell, clock, .... heck remote flush via cell phone or ipad.... (NOT).

Fun Fact, my basement is finished. Moving this thing is not going to be worth the work.

IT is beneficial. But not any more than a
Does your <$50 programmable thermostat have sensors in it that can tell when you're not home and turn itself off? Can you change the temperature or schedule remotely? Does it tell you when you're actually being efficient? Does it email you a monthly report?

There's a lot more value to the nest than meets the eye. It is WAY more than just a programmable thermostat.

Thumbs up for a good deal even though I have a Nest 2. The thing rocks.

Anyone know if this works for a heat pump with 2 stage cooling, 3 stage heating (with the auxillary heat being a furnace)? Widget asked me to send them a picture of my wiring.

Good grief, first $10 light bulbs, and now $200 thermostats. Have people lost all sense?
I've replaced so many "cheap" lightbulbs in the garage that a $13 LED one that lasts a couple of years will actually save me money. Not to mention the fractional energy costs.

Have people lost the ability to do math?

Many people are talking about the "auto-away" function. I have a PhD in electrical engineering, yet not able to figure out a practical algorithm for the Nest to detect whether there is anyone in the house.
Say, you go out for a lunch on Sunday for 3 hours, versus you are reading books in your study room where the sensor of Nest cannot reach. Don't tell me that the Nest is SO smart that knows the activity in every room with only one unit (no matter how high tech its sensor is) mounted on the wall!
How can the Nest tell the difference between these two events? You don't want or AC/Heater auto-off when you are still in your house.
Any Nest buyer tell me under what condition the "auto-away" kicks in?

Wrong - I am convinced that in the (Texas) summers, it has saved me the price that I paid for it by being able to remotely turn off the AC and set many schedules.
That's fine for you but I don't live in Texas. Great price for the Nest but still an overpriced thermostat.

It can't tell the activity in each room. One day I was in my office for several hours and the Nest went to auto-away.

In my experience, I think it takes about two hours of no activity in the room with the Nest for the auto-away to activate. I would assume this operates on the assumption that your thermostat will be centrally located and you will likely pass by it at least every two hours.
