When someone does an internal server version...

...I'll buy in. Even if it's a propietary RasPi image (other cheap hardware is available).

But I'm not having a thermostat that relies on an internet connection - If I want to control it remotely I'll either sort out my own VPN, or connect to your service explicitly. I don't want it connecting to/reliant upon a server I don't control/cannot spoof.

Heck - if it connects by DNS name and I can configure my own (and therefore divert it using my own DNS server) then that's fine too...
