Other than the fact that it's controllable through Echo, what does this do that a programmable thermostat doesn't? Do people really find themselves changing their thermostat settings from the Internet? In general, once you set it up for time of day and day of week, it's pretty much good to go.
It's nice to keep an eye on your house when you are traveling. You can see what your temperature is in your home, get an alert if your furnace goes out, turn the damn thing off if you forgot to when you left the house. Nice to warm the house up before you get home too. This is all above and beyond regular scheduling.

It gets utility company rebates... I got $100 x 2, so I dumped my old programmable ones. And yes, I can be at my desk or watching TV and click the app or use the desktop interface to change the temp.
FYI it is easier to setup programs on the desktop interface.
