"Don't be an idiot that falls into the trap thinking everything IoT is crap, it's not."

That depends on how you define "crap".

You could have bought a non-IoT thermostat that would have provided the same amount of benefit, so the IoT aspect of it brings nothing to the table. But it does involve relaying even more information to a third party and poses an additional security risk. So, on the whole, I'd say it's crap.
