    Anyone know if these are compatible with pellet stoves? All i can see is that they are 24v. I'm not sure if that's even the right 'low voltage' figure i'm looking for.

    They seem to be smart and adjust to if you are home or not, plus wifi weather, control from a phone, etc etc.
    $250 bucks, but it seems cool.

    Any stove that can use a low-voltage type thermostat (NOT "Millivolt", NOT "Line" type) can use the NEST thermostat, but you need to to add a 24VAC transformer (to power the NEST), availible at any hardware / HVAC store.
