Nest Thermostat - My Thoughts After a Year

I've had my Nest thermostat for a year and I'm still very happy with it. You can't beat being able to set your temperature to away on your smartphone if you leave the house and forget to set it before then. As well as the auto-away feature (which has already saved me money.) Upstairs and you want to change the temperature? No problem, whip your your smartphone out and change it now.

The best part is you can check your temperature any time, any where. You can also check your energy usage. You'll also get an email once a month from Nest explaining how well your doing compared to others. This is a product I highly recommend to save you money.
