When my partner suggested getting a smart control unit, I figured I wouldn’t use it.
I am not the most technologically savvy woman out there.
Any modern tech item takes me a while to figure out. I also don’t have firm opinions on what the Heating & A/C device should be set to. My partner listed all the features a smart control device had. I didn’t believe any were for me. After she installed the control device I realized how often I use it. My number one feature is that when I walk by, the smart control device lights up. It tells me the temperature outside currently, what it is mid day and what it will be at night. If I linger near it, it tells me the indoor temperature. I never realized how curious I was about indoor and outdoor temperatures. I could check everything on my cellphone, but I chose to stop by my control unit. I use that feature to decide when I labor out, if I want to labor outside or plan my day. I don’t change the heating and cooling settings. I will say I do love late at night increasing the control device from my bed. There have been a few times where I was so cold. It was nice picking up my cellphone, turning on the heating system and then going to sleep. I didn’t actually wake myself up or inconvenience myself. I now see why more and more people are going with a smart control unit. It is convenient, pretty and it does save a lot of energy. The control device knows when we are in the home or not.
