What's the matter?

i'm a huge gadget guy and this looks freakin awesome. now with the 2nd gen coming out I may have to make the decision to buy this (sneak it so the wife doesn't know). lots of cool features i've been reading about and i try to manage my heating/cooling with a current programmable thermostat. does a good job, but what I like is being able to communicate with the NEST while at work and tell it to cool the house down on really hot days so it's good when i get home. that would be awesome!!!

I was just reading an article about the Nest2 today. I can't see spending this much for a thermostat in my own house but it does do a lot and is an amazing gadget.

There's one thing to say at least it looks high tech and with a high price too.

It is a cool gadget, but I agree that the price is really hard to justify. It would probably take a couple years to recoup the cost from what it claims it can do to lower your HVAC bill. $100- Now we're talkin' LOL

A friend of mine has the first generation nest installed in his house in southern Florida, ~3500sqft. His bill has decreased about 25-40% over the summer months. The key feature is that it recognizes when no one is home and will control the system accordingly. It also takes into account the local weather. He recouped his money for the nest in less than half a year. I plan on getting the second generation when it's released because it has increased support for dehumidifier systems, which unfortunately my builder put into my house, and prevented the 1st generation from working for me.
