    I recently bought and installed a Cyberstat 1201 which cost me roughly $80 and was pretty simple to wire in, connect via my WiFi, and is really wonderfully easy to control with my smartphone.

    I'm a pretty thoroughly analog guy, so if it went smoothly for me, it's not rocket science

    I had one question during install about powering it and sent an email and had a very informative response in less than an hour.

    I've wanted this functionality for years but been unwilling to pay for a 'Nest' or some glitzy ubercomplicated device.

    I have no commercial affiliation whatsoever with this company, merely want to spread the word about an affordable product that works well.

    Google Cyberstat 1201 and you will find it.

    Hold the press on my enthusiasm for this product. Some snafus with the web server while I was away from home. Came home to a too-warm house (not extreme, but it will be a fuel ouch, better than the opposite extreme of inadequate heat and resulting damage). Time will tell whether the company is ready for prime time on the robustness of the systems that this thing depends on...

    I've had success at getting this thing running and the company has been good at support.

    The product is superb; the operating instructions leave a lot to inference.
