I am a huge fan of a good deal. I love the hunt and I love walking out knowing I got something I needed/wanted for a price I wanted or less. Today I was able to do just that for something I have been keeping an eye on for a while, a WiFi Thermostat for my home. Sounds silly, but I have wanted one for a while for a number of reasons, mostly to be able to save money and entire shut the system off when I am gone from morning till night five days a week, but have it warm or cool between leaving work and getting home. The WiFi Thermostat comes with a receiver that plugs into it and hides behind it nicely. Its a bit bigger then my old one so some wall touch up will be needed, but I wanted to paint anyways so thats a project for a long weekend. I now have an iOS app where I can log in and change the temperature, setup programs and a few other thermostat related features. The convenience is nice and sometimes when I am on the couch being lazy and want to turn it up or down a few degrees, I now dont have to get up!
