1. A programmable environmental controller, comprising:

  • an local area network interface port configured to communicate digital data through a local area network;

    at least one climate sensor configured to sense environmental climate conditions;

    at least one movement sensor configured to detect a movement of an individual in a vicinity of the at least one movement sensor; and

    at least one automated processor configured to receive the sensed environmental climate conditions and the detected movement, to jointly classify a temporal pattern of the sensed environmental climate conditions and the detected movement, and to communicate at least one signal in dependence on the jointly classified pattern, the at least one signal being adapted to at least control an environmental control system.
