The first gen device was on "clearance" at Lowes for $149, IIRC (now it is $229).

The new version retails for $249.


I assume this is really a US oriented device, considering our fascination with ducted installs and a central HVAC system.

I added a multi-zone minisplit system in my last home, and can maintain specific temperatures of individual rooms,so I could not use such a device (The Nest).

Could be much more useful with remote temperature sensors in each room and electronic duct dampers.

Kickstarter project?

no mention of the University of Michigan?
