Google testing web-connected thermostats to help you monitor home energy use.
The search giant had attempted at similar tech few years ago with PowerMeter, a web dashboard that tracked an entire home's energy use, which was stalled mid way citing difficulties scaling it up, the Verge reports.
According to the report, it might be a better time for Google to launch such a service in the era of Internet of things as there is a wave of increasingly connected home appliances.
However, Google won't be introducing a Nexus thermostat as it is likely to source devices from Ecobee that makes its own line of smart thermostats, the report added. ( ANI )
