LAS VEGAS--Smart home is a term which gets thrown around rather a lot at tech trade shows, but one device that really exemplifies what a modern smart home can be is the Nest Thermostat.
Designed by members of a team who worked on Apple’s iPod, the Nest is a sleek looking digital thermostat which can actually “learn” its owners’ schedule and then continue to regulate temperature to suit the user’s preferences and patterns.
By regulating temperature and adjusting itself to switch on or off when needed, the Nest not only saves people money on their electricity bills, but also gives people more control over how they control their energy costs.

This product has WiFi so it hooks into your home wireless network, and therefore can talk to your computers and smartphones. Thankfully, the connectivity is not limited to iPhone---I am a droider, myself.
