The tech press has been raving about this energy-saving device since it came out a couple of years ago and the new improved model was released this past summer to even more favorable reviews but I haven’t seen one, let alone used it. It appears to be – brace yourself – a thermostat – but also a bit more because it learns your household’s living pattern – when does mom get up to make coffee before heading off to her charwoman duties, when does ol’ redundantized Dad roll off the sofa in the living room and leave for the unemployment office and when does he get back from the club bar, etc. – and automatically drops and lowers the house temperature accordingly.
Does this actually save money over manually doing the same thing yourself with a ten dollar device instead of a two hundred dollar one? Can it control a typical seven-zone Greenwich Maxipad? I have no clue, but if you care to share your experience with this thing, feel free to do so.
