Other Comments: 

I wanted a thermostat I could control with my iPhone. Cool concept! The Nest works well. You need sighted help to set it up, but you can read and change your temperature right from your iPhone. Sometimes you have to double-tap the "Account" or the name of your thermostat like "Home" for more. Don&;t expect to access to much, but you can access enough.
