DZ NextGen Seeded: Home Climate Control

If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.

-- James Cameron, director of Terminator and Titanic, from The New Yorker

From the very beginning, one of DZ's goals was to make temperature zoning solutions accessible to the general population. That never happened. One of the reasons for that is that the niche it occupied is very narrow, and people don't even look into the dusty corner of the Web where the opening to this niche is.

#1 on search for temperature zoning, you say? So what, they say? Who cares?

And they're right, for in order to be looking into this niche you will have to have already investigated quite a bit, and already know words "zoning", and "hvac", and that's not what was supposed to happen. The person in need was supposed to find this project right away, and be able to use it right away.

That didn't happen, either. When you ask a geek for a result, you get a result only a geek can use.

So the next crusade, starting today, is to fix these two things: first, make this project easier to find, second, make it actually usable to people that have nothing but money in the pocket, and not too much money by that, either. Rich or poor, everyone deserves to live in comfort, and let's try to make that happen.

Here comes, http://homeclimatecontrol.com/.

Not much there now, but it takes time to build everything. Stay tuned.
