It is the first major consumer tech gadget meets energy efficient home hardware. Can the iPhone of thermastats actually deliver on its claims? Can it spark consumer interest? Only research and use will tell. This does seem however to be the future of home appliances and a new turn in the consumerification of everyday, taken for granted energy appliances.
