Allure Energy has been turning the temperature up at CES 2012, with it's new Linux-based EverSense, a tablet/ thermostat. Or as the company like to call it, "A home environment and energy management product."
It has Allure's patented Proximity Control technology with privacy protection, in layman's terms it means that the thermostat links up with the GPS in your cell phone so it knows how far away from home you are and can raise or lower the temperature accordingly. You can also stream music, look at photos, adjust the controls of your heating system, get energy saving video tips and weather updates. And not forgetting, it can tell you the temperature.
In a nutshell you will be able to have your home environment managed automatically, while saving on energy costs.The EverSense features 480 x 270 capacitive touch-screen, stereo speakers and connects to the internet via Wi-Fi. It will go on sale in the second quarter of 2012 at an estimated price of $349.
