Imagine. You left you home for your 1 week vacation 4 hours ago and just realized you left the thermostat set too high. Or, your vacation home's furnace pilot light failed and the temperature in the home is near freezing. Your pipes will burst by morning and you'll never know about the flood in your home until it's too late.
These scenarios and many more were very real problems for homeowners until the advent of this latest thermostatic wonder, the IP thermostat. IP stands for Internet Protocol, a computer's numeric address on the Internet. With an IP thermostat you can access and control your thermostat from any computer with an Internet connection or in some cases such as with the IP Thermostat made by Proliphix™, you can even control your furnace thermostat from your iPhone or iPod Touch!
The IP thermostat can email you when the temperature in your home drops to a preset low or high setting, alerting you to a "freezing" potential early enough for you to take remedial action. Forgot to adjust you heating or cooling setting when you left? No problem, just jump on the internet or your iPhone and make your adjustments remotely.
So take a read of the tutorial product overview of the Proliphix NT10e and consider this little marvel for increased energy savings and user control.
