7 Cool Pieces of Tech You Can Use to Make Your Home More Green

The patern in the water pouring from the faucet pictured above looks too beautiful to be real, but it is all too real thanks to the use of two turbines in the spout. They not only make the water leaving the faucet look incredible, but they also reduce water usage by up to 15%.

Meanwhile, this programable thermostat doesn't just learn your patterns to minimize unneccessary energy usage, it also automatically shuts off when no one's home. You can even control it away from home with your smartphone.

These cool technologies are only two of the many items we rounded up for our newest Homes and Hues article: 7 Great Green Home Technologies

My old thermostat died when the furnace was on. I noticed when it got really hot in the house; good job I was at home. If I'm away, I use a home-brew temperature monitor (temps put on Dropbox), which works great. I assume the WiFi-controllable thermostats can tell you the temperature remotely.

I have a programmable thermostat that I purchased to save money on heating bills. It has the idiosyncrasy that when the battery dies in it, it quits working completely. My belief that it would revert to a "no lower than" minimum default temperature was in error. If I am away for a week and the thermostat battery dies at the same time the weather gets down to below zero temperatures I may come home to a house full of frozen broken pipes, or worse if the temperatures outside then rise above freezing, to a home flooded by said pipes. I might save my way to the poorhouse.

The faucet is not only merely a concept, but it is not one that is possible because of hydrodynamics. I am disappointed that Neatorama posted this without fact checking.

I can only use them to make my home more green if they actually exist. As far as I can determine, that faucet is only a concept. If I am wrong, please link to where I can get one! :)
