You're looking at an outdated version of this device. It was replaced by Nest Thermostat, 4 years ago. This might mean a shorter lifespan, or that the manufacturer stops supporting it soon.
The Nest Thermostat (Second Generation) was a smart thermostat developed by Nest Labs and designed by Tony Fadell, Ben Filson, and Fred Bould. It is an electronic, programmable, and self-learning Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat that optimizes heating and cooling of homes and businesses to conserve energy.

The device is based on a machine learning algorithm: for the first weeks users have to regulate the thermostat in order to provide the reference data set. The thermostat can then learn people's schedule, at which temperature they are used to and when. Using built-in sensors and phones' locations, it can shift into energy saving mode when it realizes nobody is at home. 

Since being released, it has been superseded by the 3rd Generation thermostat, which shipped with a larger screen and color options for the first time.
