Yes, it is ironic but provides some good connotations simplicity being one of them and easily understood.

@kq4ym: Understandable.  Some quick Googling (ironically enough) indicates that "Abacus" appears to be taken by multiple software companies already.

Yes and there is no worry about compromised data. The abacus is completely secure, and one shake erases everything!

Not only is an abacus a very green product, I think Google missed the boat when changed to Alphabet, and didn't elect Abacus as the new moniker.

@Terry: If it's weather-related, doesn't that automatically mean it's "cloud-based"?

I'll show myself out.

Precisely!

I think it's actually a selling point for these "devices". You get to remind everyone of a building's "green" certification at the start of every season. :D

You've got to put an abacus in the hands of the right kind of celebrity, kq4ym... ideally, somebody from the tech sector like a Mark Zuckerberg or Sergey Brin to telegraph the point to all the fanboys and girls.

Electrical utilities are offering their own climate-control-as-a-service variation with the cycling of power they may do during periods of extremely high demand (usually weather related, usually the hottest parts of summer). While these aren't cloud-based per se, it wouldn't surprise me to see the utilities moving them to some sort of cloud-automation scheme in the next few years.

@James: I'm aware of at least one "Climate-Control-as-a-Service" company that uses cloud-powered IoT sensors to only charge customers for when the building is in a particular temperature range (say, 68 to 72 degrees).

On top of providing better service and having greater accountability, the company also benefits in customer satisfaction by offering savings for times of day when nobody (or almost nobody) is in the building and the building is allowed to go outside of that range overnight.

@PC: Tell me about it!  This is the story of my life in downtown Boston.

On the one hand, I think it's the older buildings/infrastructure that proliferate throughout Boston.

On the other hand, I dealt with this constantly during my three years of law school -- in a building that was built in 1999.
