Google testing web-connected thermostats to help you monitor home energy use.

Washington, Dec. 17 ( ANI ): Google is reportedly testing web-connected thermostats to help users monitor their home energy use and make required adjustments.

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 )
