At a Glance

This thermostat is packed with features, and we dig being able to display our favorite digital photos on its seven-inch screen. But it's almost as expensive as the far-superior Nest when you add the Wi-Fi module that makes it worth buying.

Price when rated: $165 (plus $55 for Wi-Fi dongle)

Pros

  • Displays digital photos on its seven-inch LCD
  • Terrific feature set
  • Great web portal

Cons

  • Ugly, additional-cost Wi-Fi dongle
  • Can't upload photos over your network
  • DIP switches!
