I certainly have to admit, I was entirely hesitant to get this smart control component for Christmas. My fiance was honestly really excited for it, even though I was still hesitant about it. This is because my fiance is a pretty huge tech junkie–he seems to believe every new thing is the best thing so we should just get rid of the older models as soon as possible! But I’ve honestly seen many of these new pieces of technology be too fragile or finicky, which means that we would be replacing it in the next few years or even less… In the end, he won me over with an extended warranty in addition to the promise of some extreme utility bill savings. What I found out after we had our extravagant temperature control component installed was that it did even more than I thought it could, in addition to all for a lot less work. Unlike our aged programmable temperature control unit, I didn’t need to spend all this time inputting our schedules in addition to making sure everything was set to our personal needs. The smart control component learns from us via the apps on our phones, so it knows everything from when we get up, when we go to work, when we go to bed, in addition to how we always prefer the temperature control component to be set at all times. Plus, it also allows us to control other aspects of the property as well. My fiance has had these seriously extravagant blinds that we are able to control with our phones for the last few years. Pretty much like everything else, we easily forgot about them entirely. But the smart temperature control component utilizes them by adjusting them as the sunshine moves throughout the hours of the day. My fiance was totally right, we are already saving a great deal of cash on our utility bill!
