Its Wi-Fi technology allows you to access it with your Android or iOS smartphone or a PC and start heating your home while you’re on your evening commute.  Much like the Nest 2, you can program it based on your habits or to stay mostly off while you’re on vacation, for example, kicking in just enough to prevent pipes from freezing. You can also manually program it right on your wall. The “smart” properties of the thermostat include its motion Read More

A half-pipe and a couple of Read More
