It also knows if you are away and it also does some minor adjusting to temps to promote economical usage...pretty neat but a bit pricey at $249.99 although Reliant is offering it for free if you sign up with them.

I'm going to check out the radio show when I have a bit more time, but I was watching television last night and a commercial came on for the Reliant Nest Learning Thermostat - seems to me it has some "smart" capability...of course I always liked Matthew McConaughy's voice...
