A quick search resulted in several in the ~$50 and under range with auto changeover. The cheapest I found was $35. I'd hardly call that high end, since the Nest brand can run $250.

I'm not sure if your question really has a practical answer. Put in new windows or a skylight? Do you have a solid door that you could replace with one containing a window? Put a bunch of angled mirrors in your yard aimed at your windows?
