well it allows someone to control the heat in their home from an alternate location

in my case, i do a lot of high end for the ski-bunny crowd, lotta them love gadget bling bling for that one-upmanship weekender they're always pursing

and hey, it could save energy too yanno, help me out here, i'm trying to save the planet!
