Engadget Giveaway: win one of three Nest thermostats, courtesy of Amazon!

A lot of us don't have much in the way of home automation, but we'd venture to guess that most of us would absolutely love having a smarter residence. Amazon knows this, and it wants to celebrate its Home Automation store by hooking you up with a Nest thermostat. The smart thermostat -- which learns your preferred temperatures, turns itself down when you're not at home and can be controlled via WiFi -- is valued at $250 and is just one of a plethora of products that Amazon is featuring to help you control your house easier, near or far. We've got three to hand out to lucky readers, so take a chance by entering in the Rafflecopter widget below!

Winners - Congratulations to our three winners: Jon S., Wellesley, MA; Miguel C., Clifton, VA; Rick B., West Palm Beach, FL
