The Nest thermostat is a wonderful example of technology. Traditional programmable thermostats weren't-they were complicated and hard to use. In fact, according to Nest, up to 90% of traditional programmable thermostats aren't programmed properly.
The Nest is different. It learns from you. You simply adjust the temperature and it learns how warm you want the home at different times of the day and automatically delivers that temperature. Of course, you can override its learned settings anytime you want and even control it remotely from your computer or smartphone.
Now that's great technology-because it works the way a homeowner wants it to work and it's simple to operate. Oh, and it's also BEAUTIFUL!
