I love any design that keeps you comfortable! All of my heating/air is programmable.

$30 in the basic parts and over $100 for the Remote.  Way too much $$

True Elizabeth, this is a true innovation and very very useful. I believe that this will be a great hint for the manufactures with huge potential in market.

The heater, the remote, all together

There's another spce heater out there that integrates the programmable timer and remote-

The Amazon description doesn't mention the remote, but it comes with one.  It's a neat heater!

I was considering the Nest, but as I understand it, it doesn't have an alarm feature(that is, a low temperature warning).  So I'm still using my circa 1990's dialer to adjust temperature (switch between two thermostats one with home one with away setting) since it will call me if the temperature falls below my set point.

If anyone knows of a web-enabled thermostat with alarm, I'd like to hear about it.

Thanks.

Remote switches & thermostat

I have a thermostat at each of my 2 houses that operates over the internet. It is a Nest product available at Lowes' It works very well and provides a daily chart f when the furnace was on & off. I can set the temperature from anywhere and anytime that I have an internet connection.

I also have a plug-n module into which I can plug in any device such as a lamp or space heater that is also controlled through the internet. It is a WEMO product, also availabel aat Lowes and like some other similar places.

Both units can be controlled from my smart phone.

I had a similar need and couldn't find anything commercial so i had to build my own, though not remote-based.  Subsequently I found this available, which may be of interest to some people.

Yes, that's probably a little too high for a single item but mass production would definitely bring the price down. I'm sure there are other people who would be interested in this sort of gadget! Now there's an idea...

I agree, Liz. It's surprising there isn't anything on the market, particularly from the heater manufacturers. But this was done for a pretty low cost -- looks like about $30 for the parts shown here -- but the price could go down if it was produced in volume.
