Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:26 PM EDT
Have you ever gone on vacation and wondered if you remembered to change the settings on your A/C unit? Worry no more with the Nest mobile app and thermostat. You can control your thermostat with a simple touch from anywhere, anytime.
This "smart" thermostat learns about your schedule, helping you conserve energy and save money. It senses temperature, moisture, motion and outside temps assisting you with managing your heating and air usage, which accounts for approximately 50% of your energy bill. The founder and CEO of Nest is Tony Fadell, who led the team that created the first 18 generations of the iPod and the first three generation of the iPhone.
