I will certainly have to admit, I was entirely hesitant to get this smart temperature control for Christmas this year… My fiance was easily gleeful for it, while I remained hesitant about it. This is because my fiance is big into technology–he thinks every new thing is the best thing so both of us should just get rid of the older things we have as soon as possible. I’ve seem far too many of these new pieces of technology be too fragile or finicky, which means that both of us would be upgrading it in the next few years or even less. He was able to win me over eventually with an extended warranty plus the promise of enormous utility bill savings. What I found out after we had our pricey temperature control installed was that it did even more than I expected it could, plus all for a lot less work! Unlike our seasoned programmable temperature control, I didn’t have to worry about spending hours on end inputting our schedules plus making sure everything was set to our exact needs. The smart temperature control learns from us via the apps on our iPhones, so it knows exactly when both of us get up, when both of us go to our places of work, when both of us go to bed, plus how both of us prefer the temperature control to be set at all hours of the day. Not only those things, it also allows us to control other aspects of the residence. My fiance has had these very expensive blinds that both of us can control through our iPhones, however like most things both of us totally forgot about them. But the smart temperature control starting putting them to work by making small adjustments to them as the sun moves throughout the day. My fiance was totally right, both of us are already saving a large sum of money on our utility bill!
