Programming heating and cooling schedules is easy with the Comfort Sync thermostat, says the maker. It can be operated over the Internet with a computer, smart phone, or tablet, and features a high-definition touch screen, a one-touch “Away” mode for energy savings, and maintenance and repair alerts. It comes in several colors and patterns and costs around $225, not including installation.
