We just had ADT install an alarm system, they included two smart sockets and a smart thermostat. Once we have an electrician install the three items, we will not only see who is at our front , inside our house, but also control two lights and the temperature from our phones. The cost was in the $300 range with all equipment and install!

Most of the "smart" devices are just "line voltage carrier".  It is now also popular to use wi-fi.  It is extremely easy to install, but a complete waste of money.  For most people it is just a "fad", and a way for people around the world to hack your system and privacy.

You are aware that one of the major corporation internet breaches over the past 2 years was a Chinese hacker that entered the company computer system via the thermostat I.P. address?

It would not be easy to do a large scale project. Adding a smart thermostat would not be too hard.
