My mom and dad are constantly traveling when they have time off of work.
They will soon be retired, and I know that they will want to continue to travel.
One thing they have mentioned is that they will come home from a long trip and have to wait for the house to cool down after being set to a higher temperature for a long period of time. When you get home from traveling, there is nothing better than being comfortable in your own home. I decided to look into getting them a smart thermostat for their house this year for Christmas. One time, my parents were in another country for 3 weeks. They were rushing to get to the airport on time and totally forgot to turn the air conditioning up to a higher temperature while they were out of town. I had to drive an hour to their house to turn the air conditioning up when they realized what they had done. I got to thinking about it, and this could have been easily avoided if they had a smart thermostat where they could have done it from the airport on their smartphone. That was the day I decided to look into this. I found out that it’s not really that expensive to have a smart thermostat installed. Most of the devices are able to be programmed in about an hour. My parents are very happy with their smart thermostat. My dad even admits to using his phone to adjust the air conditioning from his bed.
