No, but it might make the monkey's hair stand on end.

(Not as funny when you can't see the monkey avatar from last message.)

I am not sure but I think one of my friends has one or at least very simialr from what he told me; I know he can adjust his thermostat with his iPhone. He also has some locks/dead bolts for his house that he can control with his iPhone as well.

The woman I sent this link to the thermostat responded back and said, "That's all I need, another appliance that's smarter than I am."

Somewhere I read (and now I have found a link) that all programmable thermostats lost their Energy Star rating due to the fact that more people lost money than saved money after implementation.

Sounds more like people just didn't know how to use them to me but here is the article I found.
Programmable thermostats no longer part of Federal Energy Star program

I read the article, but still don't understand how they don't save some people money. You'd have to be a complete moron to make it use more energy than a manually adjusted one, I think. Perhaps the people that are losing money, didn't turn up their utilities when they needed them turned up to begin with.
