Smart thermostat is not making life easier

I kept changing the temperature settings on our thermostat throughout the day but clearly, there was something wrong.

I was starting to suspect it might be a ghost that was messing with our thermostat.

The thermostat would change its temperature at the same time everyday. I doubted that ghosts are that predictable so I figured something else must be going on with my thermostat. We moved into this apartment a few months ago after leaving our old family home. We just don’t need as much space since the kids started families of their own. Our old, big house had a knob thermostat and you just turn the knob and the heater or air conditioning would adjust to that temperature. The thermostat in our new place has a fancy screen on it but it seemed to work the same way. And yet, there was the issue where the thermostat changed its own temperature twice a day. We were about to call the maintenance to come and have a look at it but then our daughter came by for a visit. The air conditioner suddenly got cold and we told her that it does that every day at the same time. Our daughter pushed a few buttons on the thermostat and she said it shouldn’t do it anymore. She told us that the smart thermostat must have been programmed by the previous tenants to cool off during certain times of the day. Our daughter said that she took out this programming and that it would work like a regular thermostat now for us. She even said it might start learning our settings and make life a little bit easier. I sure hope so. This new technology is not for everyone.
