My thermostat would never be able to learn all of this with the internet dying at night
I just don’t think I am technologically savvy enough or smart enough for a smart thermostat. I do blame it on the wifi in my home though. My internet connection is spotty at best. I am constantly restarting the modem or messing with the router. The internet always goes out late at night and needs to be messed with in the morning. Can you imagine hooking up a thermostat to this? I would never be able to change the temperature in my home. I would never have strong enough or long enough of a connection to warrant this. A smart thermostat also has a bunch of features that it can do through alerts. It can alert you on poor indoor air quality, good thermostat settings, air filter changes and humidity levels in the home. My thermostat would never be able to do this. The alerts would get lost when the internet went out. Then I would never change my thermostat or know if the indoor air quality is dirty or not. The greatest feature on the thermostat is that it learns a HVAC program for the week. For a week the homeowner sets the smart thermostat to heating and air. The thermostat learns what temperature you like, at what time and even in what room. Then it changes it day by day to match your schedule. My thermostat would never be able to learn all of this with the internet dying at night. Or it might think I want nothing at night so I can either freeze or sweat to death. So it is not for me.
