A feature known as geofencing allows the thermostat to track the location of each family member’s smartphone
I am regularly making household improvements. I absolutely love to paint rooms, buy current furniture and install current light and plumbing fixtures. I prefer focusing on little details such as light switch plates, plants and throw pillows. Along with making our lake house more aesthetically pleasing, I hope to create a comfortable and healthy living space! Not long ago, I started looking into getting a new thermostat, and my thermostat was an old plastic model that required manual adjustment. It allowed me to raise or lower the home’s temperature and nothing more. There was no ability to set a program, making it difficult to actually conserve energy. If I adjusted the thermostat before my family left the lake household for the day, the group of us then returned back to the lake house to either absolutely cold or overheated conditions. I often forget to make the adjustments and then would end up paying to maintain an empty lake household at the perfect comfort level. A brand new thermostat honestly seemed like a household improvement that would end of paying for itself. I started researching the numerous models of smart thermostats on the market and was amazed by the many options. Modern thermostats are available in all types of shapes and sizes. They are rather appealing, absolutely streamlined and include touchscreen interfaces. There are particular models that offer learning capability, however for the first month after installation, the thermostat keeps track of all of the adjustments and creates a program accordingly. There are models that include occupancy sensors in every room and offer zone control. A feature known as geofencing allows the thermostat to track the location of each family member’s smartphone. It then knows to adjust the temperature to welcome everybody back home to perfect comfort.
