The Nest Thermostat

Our thermostat died and man it was cold! I decided to install the ‘Nest’. It is beautifully crafted and easy to install and use. It connects to your wi-fi and will send you email reports, let you control it via your phone and more! Below is a quick video of the install and my impressions.
