    Great replies fellas.

    Yes i guess AI is here to stay , personally it's the 'back 9' of my career , so i just have to keep up for a little while longer

    Is it all worth it? , dunno. In my mind 'KISS' things last longer, are easier, etc, but DO less

    Fortunately i married a software engineer , my entire existence is a technological wonder

    So i was sitting on the porch watching the geese armada land on the pond (it's nice out), sort of bantering what you fellas are sayin' here

    I sez " You know, all this technology tells me i'm wrong' to my lovely other 1/2

    there's a beat of silence...and

    'well....you ARE you know'

    A nest is the size of a hockey puck, which coincidentally is about all it's good for. In fact, the nest is preferably dealt with by hitting it directly into a concrete wall with a hockey stick.

    I know for a fact that the Nest will not work on two separate systems which is common here where central a/c is added to a house with hydronic baseboard heat. We wasted almost an entire day trying to figure out why it would not work with both systems connected to it.

    Why won't it work. If there are two different control systems all you need is a control relay for one or the other to isolate the two systems.

    call up tech support when you are ready to install it.
    they will talk you thru it.

    at the risk of having people throw tomatoes at my post,
    i have a nest. zero problems. i'm on a forced air heat,
    so two wires does it. with AC, it'll run the blower a bit
    after the compressor stops, so it gets the cold out of the
    coil.

    also have the smoke/CO detectors that link to the nest.
    if you have a fire alarm, it turns off the forced air. when
    you walk down the hall, the thing glows as a nightlight
    for a minute or so.

    it also works with the big azz fan, so the fan comes on slowly
    and mixes the warm air in the master bedroom.

    the registration of the device doesn't have a street address,
    so nobody can tell you aren't home by hacking their server.
    i also run a vpn on my home line, so the data from IOT stuff
    comes from salt lake city.

    it's adaptive, and tweaks and tunes your heating. sorta like
    daylight harvesting for heat. when i first tried it, spouse was
    skeptical till the first gas bill came in. it paid for itself in three
    months.

    the one thing that was funny, was the smoke detector put in the
    garage. it didn't like it getting cold out there at night, and went
    into test mode. put it in warm part of house, problem disappeared.

    i'm not into the iOt stuff. i have a washer, dryer, refrigerator, and
    stove that all want to log onto the net and work with an app.

    none of them are hooked up. it's not important to me.

    however, two of my cars send me emails saying all is well, or i need
    to check something...... so i guess i'm an unrepentant sinner.

    the cars are cool, as i can send an address to the gps from the phone,
    and don't have to do the button dance in the car to enter it.

    i don't give a chit if my vegetable crisper is at 33 degrees. if the brocolli
    freezes, that is jills trauma. i don't do broccoli.
