Run out the door and forgot to turn off your thermostat?

There's an app for that.

TXU Energy has launched an incredible app called "Brighten I-Thermostat."

With your i-Phone you can actually control your thermostat, no matter where you are.

You can even pre-set temperatures for different times of the day.

The technology is being offered as a solution to save energy.

But it will cost you.

It runs around $7.99 a month and will show up on your TXU electricity bill.

However, the company says in the long run, you'll save big by using pre-programmed settings.
