Welcome to 2008 and all the best to all my fellow bloggers for the new year, wherever you are around the world.
Interesting offer from my local utility.
They will install a smart thermostat in my home for free, and will allow me to adjust my thermostat settings over the Internet. In exchange, the utility may remotely raise the temperature in my home by one or two degrees for a brief period of time, on the hottest weekday afternoons during the summer, when the use of air conditioners is greatest.
At the same time, the utility will be replacing my electric meter with a smart one to enable the future implementation of time-of-use pricing.
Is Hyperconnectivity hitting home with you?
