It was raining outside and getting colder and colder by the minute. I ran through the rain, getting soaked from head to toe before making it to my car. I got in the car but wasn’t much more comfortable; my car’s heater had stopped working a long time ago and I was freezing and shivering as I drove home. I was looking forward to walking into a nice comfy house and warming up but then I remembered that my thermostat was set too low for the heater to kick on. The idea of getting home to a house that was as cold as the outside made me just want to cry! I had never wished for a smart thermostat more than I wished for one right at that moment. I would have loved to be able to just use my smartphone to turn on the heater for me so I could come home to the nice warm, blissfully heated house and stop this shivering! I couldn’t stop thinking about how nice it would be to be able to just control the thermostat in my house from anywhere I was so that I could always come home to a house that was a perfectly comfortable temperature. It would be just as nice to have in the summertime for controlling the air conditioner as it would be in the winter for controlling the heater! I got home to my freezing house and turned on the heater before jumping into a hot bath. I made up my mind at that moment to looking into getting a smart thermostat.
