Google PowerMeter and Ecobee Thermostat

I was fortunate enough to spend Memorial Day weekend in Washington, D.C.  My wife and I went up for a wedding and I was able to see the great exhibit on Electricity that is at the National Museum of American History.  But while I was there I realized I forgot to reprogram my thermostats so they would know I was on vacation!  This meant I was cooling space that nobody was in.

Ecobee internet enabled smart thermostat preview

I had the Ecobee internet enabled smart thermostat installed over the weekend and so far I'm very impressed.  The full blog on my initial thoughts will be following tomorrow.  I just wanted to release a teaser video.  All I'm trying to show is how the Ecobee thermostat can be controlled over the internet. In this case I used my iPhone with its built in web browser over 3G network (not with the Ecobee iPhone App which is still in development).

Just imagine if I was across the country with my iPhone instead of right next to the thermostat...
