The Nest Thermostat has a round shape with colors that are designed to blend into whatever color wall you install it on.
The thermostat is intended to save you energy and money by automatically learning your patterns and behavior and adjusting itself accordingly. For instance, if you regularly come downstairs at 8 a.m. every day and set the temp to 70 degrees, it stores and learns that info. Then, using motion sensor technology, if it doesn't sense your presence every morning, it will figure out you're away and will adjust the temp to save on energy.
Using an IOS app, the Nest can be controlled remotely via a Wi-Fi connection, so you might want to crank up the air conditioning from the train ride home, or turn up the heat before the kids get home from school.
The Nest thermostat comes with the tools you'll need to install it yourself, and there are videos to guide you through the process.
