I live in the Arizona Desert, Southwestern USA. It gets hot here, and my power bills got out of hand. This is a journal of my various efforts to bring this problem under control using the cheapest technology I could find. Saving money shouldn't cost a fortune.

Naturally, when you depend on the internet, it fails. I now have a satellite based clock to sync the house for the various controls instead of using the NIS servers. See the clock tab above or click here.

Got remaining parts in and actually installed the thermostat. It is working great and can actually be controlled over the network in my house. Of course I won't put it on the web for other people to control since this could become a problem. I updated the description and posted a picture of the installation.
