I dig it, though only played with it briefly during a meeting. I’m hoping to have a review unit soon, but setup should be just as easy as a standard Nest (it’s a cinch, in my experience installing one for a family member). Plus, if you live in certain cities with rebates for smart thermostats (Chicago is one that rewards consumers particularly well), you can get the new Nest Thermostat E almost for free. That’s pretty darn tempting.

The Nest Thermostat E goes on sale today direct from Nest and its retail partners.
