I have a coworker who is always the first to dive into new inventions or technology.
It’s fantastic because I sort of use him as a guinea pig to try out something new and high-priced before I make the plunge myself.
He saved myself and others from buying this new smartphone that was released from a immense international supplier known for owning the largest search engine on the internet. Although their flagship phone is in its sixth incarnation, the first was a mess to say the least. I really wanted one, but after he provided myself and others his rundown on its limitations and lack of key features, I waited until the hour version was released the following year. With the new phone, I couldn’t be happier. So when he mentioned Last year that he bought a smart temperature control for his central a/c, I was intrigued. Although it was never directly on our radar, a smart temperature control was one among many new items I had scanned over in a sale paper for our hardware store here in town. Some of the key features are rooted in the device’s ability to affix to the internet. It can read and analyze local weather conditions to create customized cooling cycles that better fit your needs and comfort, all the while always looking to save as much money as possible. I was just gleeful at the thought of setting up heating and cooling schedules for the week so I can manually tell the device to change its settings depending on when I wake up, go to sleep, leave for work, and return from work. When I discovered that our new digital temperature control has these basic scheduling features built in, I was ecstatic. Sure, it would be fantastic to buy a smart temperature control at some point soon, but for now these scheduling features on our old temperature control are enough to make myself and others ecstatic for the foreseeable future.
