Road testing the Nest Thermostat

Culture
-Typical day today on three job locations. -Just, Lisa, tells us about what you do so people can understand why you are perfect candidate to road test our Nest. -All right, well, I'm an interior designer and I specialize in kitchen and bath design and part of that is how warm, you know, how comfortable is this place gonna be both from flow perspective as well as the temperature perspective. -So, are you familiar with the Nest Learning Thermostat? -No, I have seen it in the Apple Store, but I've not used it. -All right, so Lisa, what I'm gonna do is give you this Nest Learning Thermostat and I'm hoping that you will install one in your house and then take one with you on job sites, see how your contractors respond, maybe clients, just kind of integrate it into your interior design business. -Awesome. -I'll give it [unk] -Here's your Nest. -I can't wait to try it. Nice, elegant, fun, looks like a hockey puck, look, any action, yeah, we actually have an elegant plate, very exciting. -So, the installation I wouldn't say was difficult. I was a little bit challenging. I e-mailed nest, they helped me, and then we got it booted up. Now, it's gonna be fit to 63 degrees when we go in bed. Okay. We'll check it out in the morning and we'll teach it what temp we want it to be when we wake up. Good morning, day 1. This is kind of cool to watch. Hello and I'm touching it. I'm gonna set up back down to 64 and hopefully, you know, learn from that and that's the low temperature that we want during the day because our birds need it to be a little warm. These are actual birds that are living our nest. Here's flasher, say hello flasher. Hi buddy. He says here I am. I'm home. I'm feeling like I wanna get and adjust my thermostat. So, I'm just gonna do it from phone. We'll have it activate. There is goes and I hear that the Nest has kicked on, awesome, don't even have to be mature. Good morning, we're on day 3 of our Nest. So, let's just crank it up to 66, and I check it from the road and just see where we are. I want to see what the temperature situation is at the house. So, I'm gonna make sure it doesn't get too cold. It's kind cold on my phone or on my iPad. I can check to see like oh did turn the thermostat down or did it really learn. When I'm gone, I went it down to 64%, so that's pretty cool. All of a sudden, I'm totally obsessed with thermostat, check this [unk] You can hide it on places to have low designed thermostat, time for it to change. -So Larry, I have your nest. -It's okay. -The nest is a digital thermostat. -Oh, that looks slick. -Adjust it to where you wanted to be and then it will remember. -And it learned what temperature you like to keep your house at. -Yeah, actually, I see how it works if it works. -It does. -[unk] thermostat. -That's [unk] is cool. -Just one question I had about the nest is whether or not it can move or replace my thermostat for my big board heaters on my office with the Nest as well because it's really cool down here. I'm going a lot and sometimes I forget to crank it down, but unfortunately, that won't work with high voltage system. So, with this kind of setup, the Nest won't work, too bad. -I wanted to show all the stuff. This is really cool. Going back here to energy, this indicator is saying that away feature cause our energy usage to below the weekly average. So, it's still early for us to really have an average since it's only been just over week, but I think it's really cool. -Yeah, I think that the Nest is a great alternative to your typical plastic box. -This is really good looking and a way that are aesthetic alternative to a traditional thermostat.
