Nest Labs has already received plenty of press. But I was reading their blog today, and came across this comment, showing how smart the Nest thermostat is at launch. Can you imagine where it will be with a few software updates?
Nest does use Time to Temperature – which is based on your home’s thermal profile â€” to approximate how long it’ll take to warm or cool your home. So, yes, if Nest knows, for example, that you want it to be 72 at 6PM and that it’ll take 40 minutes to get to that temperature, it’ll start heating up the house earlier.
I’m in for two sometime in 2012.
