BTW the Nest is very easy to install and comes with everything you need - including a screwdriver. No A/C repairman required.

Kwhat can't they get into today. It seems like every electronic item we own is hackable. Not sure what the solution is other then to live off the grid

I control my thermostat via my DSC alarm system over the telephone. I can select programmed thermostat modes ie. home and away, check settings, change temp etc. If the furnace stops working or temp goes below 6 degrees Celcius it notifies the alarm company. Alarm also has other monitors for wet floors, sump pump overflow and gets me an insurance discount for flood and more. I can turn off and on the alarm system and open a garage door to let someone in. Internet not needed. Peace of mind while away and up to room temperature by the time I arrive home.

Yes the Nest is very easy to install yourself. Everything you need is included. There are videos to walk you through it as well.

I just read in a security brief that hackers are now hacking home WiFi's in addition to anything else they can get a hold of.

They encouraged a separate lengthy password for each appliance or functioning item that you controlled by WiFi.

New thermostats may require new wiring

We actually bought a Nest a couple years ago, before our Honeywell. We found out that it required running a new multi-wire cable down to the furnace. We were going to do that ourselves, but the Nest warranty statement said the unit would not be covered unless an approved installer ran that wire. That caused us to return the Nest. The Honeywell also needed the new wire, but their warranty did not have such a restriction.

I don't remember numbers for sure, but I think our original thermostat cable had six wires and the new requirement was seven.
